Rick and Karen have always been an inspiration to me. Their love for Jesus,
and compassion for others is what it is all about.
Pastor James Gregerson, Pocatello, Idaho
Rick is a pastor in the true sense of the word. He genuinely cares for the sheep.
Tremendous seeds have been planted as a result of his ministry. The Frasure's
will be dearly missed by the Hawaiian community.

Rick and Karen Frasure were a major influence on our lives. They taught us what
it was like to have a pastor and wife that cared about you as if you were family.
They visited, prayed for us, introduced us to others, taught us, and were a part of some
of the best times we've had.
Pastor Charles and Wendi Spencer
Grand Ronde Church of God of Prophecy
They are most caring and giving people that I have ever meant. They helped at a
time in my life, when it was the darkest. They are very unselfish people they give
of their heart and love just radiates from them, because they love people so much.
P. Wheatley, Pocatello, Idaho
Rick & Karen Frasure's unselfishness impresses me. I often see them minister
to the outcasts and to those who cannot bless them back. They are hard workers with
Often I have heard Pastor Rick share anointed sermons and prayers. Their constant
encouragement has motivated me to be more of a blessing to others.

I have known the Frasure family since their arrival in Hawaii eleven years
ago. Rick has been my Senior Pastor for the past 6 years, and I have served as his
Associate Pastor for four of those years.
Rick and I have not always had the same operating style or methodology, but we have
remained bound together in common purpose and mission. We always learn from each person
with whom we work. From Rick I have learned much.
Rick taught by example a passion for prayer and fasting. Rick taught by example that true
compassion and empathy for hurting people requires more than lip-service. Rick taught by
example that "ministry" is a sacrificial calling requiring freedom from
self-will and the bondage to "stuff." Rick taught by example mercy and
forbearance. Rick taught by example what it means to give all for the sake of the call. I
will always appreciate those lessons and try to live up to them.
If forced to pinpoint the single most effective thing about Rick's life and ministry, I
would accentuate his remarkable gift for evangelism. Rick presents the gospel in
simplicity and power in such a way that hearts are prepared for the convicting ministry of
the Holy Spirit. Both in one-on-one personal evangelism and in the corporate
congregational setting Rick's ministry is bold, exciting and challenging. God has great
things in store for the Frasure family and for those churches blessed to welcome them.

I have only known the Frasure family for a short time, but I can tell you that their
ministry has a good reputation. Sometimes it is hard to follow someone to a pastorate
because there are bitter feelings, but this is not the case with the Frasures. We have had
the smoothest transition that I have ever experienced in my 29 years of ministry. This
kind of transition does not just happen by itself. It happens because
people are dedicated to Christ and His Church; not just to making a name for themselves!
Thanks Rick, Karen, Joshua, and Andy for being such wonderful examples of Christian love
and fellowship! None of us can be everything to everyone all the time, but you are giving
your best I believe and that is what counts. Love and Prayers for the success of your

Rick is my little brother-in-law. I've known him since he was a seventeen
year-old football playing Christian. He has proved himself to be a man of prayer for
the last 25 years. Karen has proven herself to be a woman of patience and
When I was facing some serious life threatening problems (a broken back in four places,
four broken ribs, and a broken right collar bone) after a major car accident, Rick
and Karen Frasure and many wonderful Christian saints spent day and night fasting and
praying for me. God was merciful and I was completely healed and they were all
blessed (although at times, I'm sure they wondered about that). Rick has told
me several times that he saw his first angel on his way to pray for me in the hospital.
I thank the Lord for Rick and Karen and the times they made sacrifices in their
personal lives to help me and many of their other friends and family. It's not
always easy for us to go the extra mile but they both have gone the full distance for me
and in their walk with the Lord.
