PASTOR RICH KAO
I started my professional career as an immunologist, and spent seven years in new technology development in the diagnostic and pharmaceutical fields.
I then moved to full-time pastoral and church planting ministry, where I've been the last 30 years. I've gotten to meet some amazing men and women of God along the way.
I have four awesome adults children living in the US (Seattle & Minneapolis) and Canada (Vancouver). My wife helped make them awesome.
As a family, we love to travel and have visited many countries.
Serial entrepreneurship has been in my blood, having been involved in a twelve different starts-ups from businesses to non-profits to faith-based; but church planting is my love and call.
Thinking creatively and strategically gets me fired up.
I love culture and cities - food, sports, fashion, education, science, politics, business, finance, urbanism, language, music, arts, people -- you name it.
I love worship and intercession.
I love the prophetic. Encouraging people with God's heart is simply amazing.
I love good scholarship.
Being called into the ministry has been the privilege of my life. I'm still pinching myself.
