More about King’s

Our Leadership

Joshua & Shannon Marocco
Senior Pastors

Josh and Shannon Marocco answered the call to ministry early in their youth. In 2011, Dr. James Marocco, Global Senior Pastor, sent them to be site pastors at King’s Chapel Oahu. Since then, a movement of Christ which began in East Oʻahu spread to 5 extensions, numerous community outreach events, and summer programs for youth.

In addition, God has moved in such a way to call business and community leaders to join the vision of King’s Chapel to impact the State of Hawaiʻi through marketplace evangelism.  Pastors Josh and Shannon’s fire for the Holy Spirit has not stopped since and they continue to live out their motto, “Speak Life” which communicates God-given potential in every person.  

More recently, God has imparted a fresh vision to Pastor Josh for the church to impart strategic leadership principles that will effectively empower and equip leaders to connect people with their God-given purpose and see the local church meet the needs of the community.

Pastor Shannon has also taken steps of faith and put into action God’s call to begin Embrace Women’s Ministry which encourages women to embrace God, others, and their call by seeking Him wholeheartedly.

Building upon the rich heritage of faith and leadership, Pastors Josh and Shannon Marocco are believing God to continue in His great work and have recently taken on the role of Senior Pastors of King’s worldwide.
