[1 Corinthians 3:9]Our understanding of the calling of God is that our life and ministry are not separate – they are one. Therefore, our personal cost of living and the cost of the work of ministry are not separate – they both come out of the same “pot”, so to speak. Frances and I attempt to cover the cost of our simple life-style through our only source of income – Social Security income.
In the exercise of our ministry, we do not work for nor receive support from any particular church denomination or religious organization. We look solely to the Lord and trust in His provision through His people.
Our personal giving to the Lord also comes from our Social Security income. One way we give to the Lord is to absorb the cost of making our ministry resources “freely” available to people. In return, we “freely” welcome and accept contributions.
We place the highest value on what we have freely received from the Lord
– it’s “priceless”.
We operate on the Lord’s principle:
“Freely you have received; freely give.” (Matthew 10:28)
We understand this to mean:
All receivers should be also be givers. And all givers should be receivers.
(1 Corinthians 9:11)
Therefore, we freely give to you what we have freely received from the Lord.
(John 3:27 & 1 Corinthians 4:7)
In return, we “freely” receive contributions.
Our ministry resources are primarily in the form of written/recorded, published and distributed teachings and messages, as well as, an intensive correspondence ministry.
We make our ministry resources freely available to many people who are not able to make contributions because of their poverty and/or because of restrictions on the transfer of funds out of their countries. In doing this we are utterly dependent upon the Lord and those of His people who are able to contribute to support the distribution of these ministry resources. Practically speaking, the only contributions we can easily receive for ministry resources are from individuals in the USA.
There is a plethora of ministry resources available in the USA, and a dearth in most other nations. Those of us who live in the USA have “a great and effective door” opened for us to meet this great need to multiply the word of Christ – particularly with church leaders in Third-World countries, as God gives the increase.
(1 Corinthians 16:9; 3:6)
We understand that for those living outside of the United States it can be very problematic and/or complicated to transfers funds out of your country. But for those living in the USA – your contributions help make these ministry resources available to church leaders in Third World countries who cannot afford to make contributions.
Our desire is simply to see the word of Christ multiply, as God gives the increase.
(1 Corinthians 3:6)
At Christ’s Table Ministries is intentionally not a 501-C-3 organization, and therefore does not offer “tax deductions for charitable contributions”; but we certainly welcome “free will offerings” cheerfully given from the heart.

therefore we have determined
to no longer live for ourselves
but for Him Who died and rose again for us.”
