How to Donate to this Ministry

Thank you for your interest in contributing. I actually operate 2 separate ministries, one is a charity and the other is a teaching ministry.

The following is a description of each:

Bread of Life Giving and Sharing

Formerly Treasures of Yahweh, we now collect all alms donations through our charity, “Bread of Life Giving and Sharing.” It is a separate ministry and I’m the Executive Director among 4 board members. You can read more about it here. To contribute to the alms fund, visit https://www.eliyah.com/open-treasury/.

EliYah Ministries

The second ministry is that of EliYah.com, which incurs expenses such as the yearly Feast of Tabernacles event, web based email system, web site upkeep, telephones, live broadcast/recording studio expenses, ministry trip expenses, etc. If you have received free DVD’s or other materials, this would the place to donate.

If you are wanting to donate to EliYah.com, I am guiding it by the following principles:

  • None of the funds contributed will be for personal, non-ministerial use. Contributions are kept in a special account under the name EliYah.com. If you prefer to donate to me and my family personally, see the next section.
  • I will not favor the rich man by charging people to hear a sermon or scripture study. Yahushua never practiced it, and neither did His disciples. When Yahushua sent out His disciples, He said, “Freely you have received, freely give.” 
  • EliYah.com will not be registered as a non-profit organization (501c). Contributions are not tax deductible. I don’t want anyone putting a muzzle on my mouth. Because of this, I may have to pay taxes on contributions if they exceed expenses.
  • I will be fully accountable to my fellow brethren by making the EliYah.com balance sheet available upon request.

Please note that PayPal contributions reflect a slightly smaller amount than original donation amount due to PayPal fees.

Personal Donation

After 18 years of operating this web site and ministry without specifically offering a way for someone to donate to me personally, in 2013 I prayerfully decided to allow others to do so while devoting my life fully on ministry.

I run this ministry, teach at Shepherd’s Way Fellowship of Ava, and lead Bread of Life Giving and Sharing, a ministry to the poor in my local community of Ava. There is no payroll for any ministry I’m involved in.

I am married and have 4 children and two grandchildren. Two of my children are raised and in their late 20’s. The other two were orphans that I adopted in 2008.

I don’t believe in running a “teach for pay” ministry.
