Our old website was out of date and difficult to manage, so it was decided to start fresh with a brand new website. Our previous website had a long and cumbersome domain name that we wanted to shorten. Our new name would be a new brand for our church and it needed to convey two things.
- That we are part of the modern day Church of the Nazarene, and
- That we are proud to be part of the rich history of Wahiawa.
Naz is often used as a contemporary prefix or suffix by many in the Church of the Nazarene.
Da kine is an expression in Hawaiian Pidgin (Hawaii Creole English), probably derived from "the kind", that usually functions grammatically as a placeholder name (compare to English "whatsit" and "whatchamacallit"), but can also take the role of a verb, adjective, or adverb.
"Da kine" is probably the most identifying characteristic of spoken Hawaiian Pidgin.
So we created NAZKINE.
Nazkine is growing into an exciting new brand in Christian media. We continue to explore all possibilities and potential for this brand and are highly motivated to use this vehicle in our efforts to grow the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!
