Pioneer Hawaiian Missionary. He was Protestant Clergyman and leader of the first group of American Missionaries to introduce Christianity in the Hawaiian Islands. In 1820, he arrived on the island of Oahu. Around 1836, Bingham constructed the Kawaiaha'o Church in Honolulu which is now one of the oldest standing Christian places of worship in Hawaii. Bingham used his influence with Queen Kaʻahumanu to instigate a strongly anti-Catholic policy in Hawaii, considerably impeding the work of the French Catholic missionaries. The results of this lead to the spread of religious Protestant-Catholic rivalry and enmity in the Hawaiian Islands. Because of the growing concern of religion interfering too often in Hawaiian politics, Bingham returned to America in 1841. He served as the pastor of an African-American Church in New England, until his death at age 80. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

You were a true leader then and still deserve respect and admiration now. Thank you for what you have done for the Hawaiian people and the residents of Hawaii.
