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.
