Welcome to the giving website for Kingdom Rice.

Thank you for your heart to give to this ministry.  

When you donate to Kingdom Rice, you are investing in the 5-fold Kingdom work as articulated here. l am very passionate and intentional about the financial structure my team has set up. Here are a few reasons why:

  • I am a commercial salesman for Nhance though no more than a few hours per week. All income from here is written over to Kingdom Rice. I don't pocket any income from Nhance. I.e., Though this sales job is not "vocational Christian work" I see it just as spiritual, if not MORE deeply spiritual than the writing, preaching, and training work I do for Christians. In fact, my preaching, teaching, and writing used by missionaries around the world would not have the relevance it has without the work and real-life training I've received from NHance and its team of entrepreneurial Kingdom businessmen. 
    • There are many reasons I've chosen to continue this sales job that include these: 
      • 1) This job allows me to walk in the footsteps of those I minister to, both the unchurched and disciples of Christ. 
      • 2) This job allows me to be a missional presence in San Francisco. It gives me a "normal job title" that God has used to bridge His Kingdom to many people. 
      • 3) I grow as a disciple of Christ as I am forced to "practice the presence of God" in all my work, not just in my ministry work. I am coached by top-notch coaches (former fellow ministers) to live out Christ in my work through this job.

  • 1 Corinthians 9 teaches that a ministry “workman deserves his wages,” specifically as per v14, “those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel.” However, I also feel strongly that per v 12, any giving structure ought not compromise the Gospel in any way. Since Kingdom Rice is funded from people like you, an army that is mostly different than those I’m ministering to, I can freely minister & mentor anyone or any group without any pretense. In other words, I am free to serve regardless of “honorarium” amount. And I can evangelize per God’s leading, and not according to someone’s financial potential. This gives me freedom to minister to unchurched groups both in church outreaches and out on the street, and to engage in many intentional, relational evangelistic conversations. This structure allows me to separate my funding from those I minister to. Freely I've received, and freely I shall give.
  • Though we no longer live per OT times, the example of how the Levites received their wages illustrates my long-term philosophy. It’s quite simple. They received from the Lord. At the same time, Num 35 points out that the Israelites were responsible through their giving to fund the Levites. In other words, the people GAVE TO THE LORD. And the LORD PROVIDED for the LEVITES. The people did NOT give to the Levites directly. As we give, it is an act of worship, to be done cheerfully unto the Lord. 
  • And as you give, I pray that “my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
