Hawaii Pastor Stops a Cell Tower Near a Church and a Pre-School

Kihei Baptist Chapel, in collaboration with Verizon, had applied for a special use permit to build a 50-foot cell tower  in a residential area in Maui, Hawaii. The cell tower was planned to be erected near the church which has pre-school on its property. They planned to hide it as a pine tree. Pastor Jay Amstrong and Debra Green have led a campaign against the planned cell tower and as the advocates wrote: “thankfully sanity prevailed.” On June 30, 2020 the mayor sent an email that the application was denied. 


Please say “Thank You” to the Pastor for doing the right thing: Email your words of gratitude to: Pastor Jay Armstrong jayarmstrong@hawaii.rr.com, or Call the Church and leave a message of appreciation: 808-875-2112


This is the email that was sent from the Mayor’s Office:
