Ko e visione pe taumu’a ngaue ‘a e kulupu Tonga ko eni ke fakanaunau, fakafo’ou pea ke fekau’i atu e kau ngaue. 

The vision of the Tongan Ethnic is to resource, refresh, and to release workers into ministry.  

Ko enau taumu’a ngaue ke fefakalotolahi’aki ihe founga fakafeohi mo e fefakafehokotaki’aki. Malava leva ai ke feako’aki ihe taukei ngaue, ngaahi taleniti ke langa hake ‘a e ngaue fakalotu moe ngaahi ngaue fietokoni ihe tapa kehekehe pe.  Oku taha pe ae taumu’a: ke faka’ai’ai e ‘ofa kihe ‘Otua pea ke tokoni foki kihe kakai.  

The movement exists for the purposes of encouraging one another through fellowship and connection. We develop each other’s skills and gifts through ministry and service. We all have one purpose: to love God and serve people.

The Tongan Ethnic’s Executive committee is voted in at the end of each two-year term by its credentialed pastors. Pastor Anahina Sikalu was elected the Overseer of the Tongan Ethnic in 2020 and re-elected this year for another term. She became a credentialed Assemblies of God pastor in 2014 but has helped pastor a number of churches alongside her husband, Pastor Vosailangi Sikalu. They are currently pastoring an Assemblies of God church in Mount Roskill, Connection City Church. Ps. Anahina has been actively involved in ministry since her adolescence in Tonga, Fiji and in New Zealand. With her Masters in Linguistics and her full-time work as a teacher, her teaching skills have served her well in ministry, especially in the various committee teams she’s involved in, as well as women’s ministries, academic programs and serving the movement as a whole. In this new two-year term, Ps Anahina hopes to continue networking with the larger movement in order to help resource, equip and release the Tongan people into God’s call
