Officers & Directors

Bonnie L. Moore

Bonnie L. Moore

Director and President

I incorporated Marana Ministries, Inc. in 2008 with a mission from God to share the good news of the Gospel with all the nations so our Lord Jesus can have the joy of retuning in His second coming to unite Heaven and earth in the Kingdom of God soon. This is God’s desire, to dwell with us and among us as our God and we as His people as He wipes every tear from our eyes and puts an end to pain, sorrow, and death forever. I am overjoyed to see our ministries and mission expanding and reaching out to more and more people to bring them into the light of His love as He floods the earth with the knowledge of His glory as the waters cover the sea! Besides running the ministry, composing music, teaching Sunday school, doing prison ministry, and holding workshops and meetings, I work as an attorney here in Honolulu, Hawaii doing trust and probate administration and estate planning.

I have known Bonnie for many years and have attended her Bible Studies and ministry meetings. I joined the Board of Directors and became an officer because of my belief in this ministry and my desire to be close to God and about Kingdom business. I have a heart for those who are suffering. I run the Rachel’s Vineyard ministry in Hawaii and organize the retreats to heal those who are suffering due to having been through abortion. I am a counselor at Kamehameha Schools for the students there.
