He was elected Conference Minister in 1976, first to the Central Pacific Conference and later to the Hawaii Conference.
He earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Pacific School of Religion and received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from the Pacific University (Forest Grove, Oregon).
It was in 1991 that Dr. Kawata kindly accepted our invitation to become a member of the RHF Board of Directors. Dr. Kawata is not only busy with his RHF board responsibilities, but he continues other important volunteer dedication to the UCC.
He has presented addresses at several UCC conferences and has served as preacher for the General Synod of the UCC. And he somehow has found the time to author two books and has had several articles published in other books and professional journals.
Dr. Kawata is married to Kiku who has served on the Advisory Commission of RHF since 1991.
