Alex Michel, a pastor at Encounter Church in Honolulu, died Sunday morning of injuries sustained when he was involved in a motorcycle accident and was struck by an electric motorcycle in the Ewa Beach area Friday morning.

The Honolulu Police Department reported that at about 10 :08 a.m., a 51-year-old man was jogging on Fort Weaver Road when he was hit by a Sur-Ron electric dirt bike ridden by a 20-year-old man.

The jogger was transported to an area hospital where he later died.

In a phone call Monday evening, Wayne Cordeiro, founder of the New Hope network of churches, which includes Encounter, identified Michel as the jogger and confirmed his death.

“He was loved so much, ” Cor ­deiro said.

“Alex had a fabulous family in his wife Jennifer (Canaya-Michel ) and four children, ” he said, “and he was one of our most valued teachers in New Hope’s Pacific Rim University, where he mentored and advised many young people who looked up to him. He touched thousands of lives here in Hawaii and internationally.”

The loss of Michel, Cordeiro added, was “challenging to process, ” as he was “such a huge part of our lives.”

Known as “the surfing pastor, ” Michel ministered in a video in which he compares surfing to living a fulfilling, devout life.
