David became a Christian at a Campus Life meeting while a sophomore at Nanakuli High School in Oahu. Soon God burdened his heart for ministry and gave him a vision to reach his people. He came to the mainland in 1977 to study pastoral ministry at Fort Wayne Bible College. There he met Kenda, a missions and Christian education major from Columbia City, IN. Both of them graduated in 1980 and were married that summer.

The Kapakus pastored the Walnut Grove-Tulip Churches of God circuit near Bloomfield, IN 1981-92. While there, David completed his Masters of Divinity at Oakland City Graduate School of Theology in 1990 and was ordained by the Churches of God, General Conference. He also completed Doctor of Ministry courses at Winebrenner Theological Seminary in Findlay, OH. Additional pastorates included Syracuse Church of God (1992-96) and Trier Ridge Community Church of God (1996-02).

David & Kenda moved to Maui in mid-2003. They live in the Honokohau Valley located on the northwest part of the island. Their focus is on reaching and discipling the native Hawaiian people. David is a teaching minister at the historic Ka’ahumanu Church in Wailuku and mentors native Hawaiian pastors.
