Donations and other practical
ways you can help
our worldwide ministry
Donations from loving people since October 2006 when this website first appeared online, total approximately $1065 to help pay website expenses. The other extensive and time consuming costs of research, writing, hand- coding html, answering email questions, building and designing and publishing, updating and keeping this website online are performed and paid for by Rick Brentlinger, founder of this website. To date, we have received $31 in commissions from Amazon for the ads on our site.
Donated funds have also enabled us to occasionally give away a free copy of my book to folks in the U.S.A. who cannot afford to purchase one. For those outside the U.S.A., I have more than 650 pages of FREE information online which can be translated into 52 languages. Donations are nice yet there are many other important ways you can help our world wide ministry.
We are not a 501c3
Because we are not a 501c3 non-profit, we cannot offer you a tax-deductible receipt for your gifts. Many people are unaware that there are many other ways to help our ministry besides donating money.
Our current needs
We are praying for a nice Class B camper van or a Sprinter cargo van or a used motor home donated in good running condition.
I'll swap cookbooks
for a nice camper
I am willing to swap my extensive and marvelous cookbook collection, approximately 2000 incredible books, for the donation of a nice Camper van or motor home that I can use in ministry. The cookbooks have a face value of $16,000+ and I value them as a collection at $6000+.
These cookbooks provide you with literally hundreds of thousands of recipes if you want to build a recipe website or a series of recipe websites. You could build: Worlds greatest chocolate chip cookies, Worlds greatest pies, worlds greatest cakes, worlds greatest cassaroles, worlds greatest breads, worlds greatest low-fat desserts, worlds greatest main courses, etc.
I'll swap leather bound books
for a nice camper
If cookbooks and websites are not your thing, I will also swap my collection of 100+ exquisite leather-bound, 22k gold-stamped, moire silk end paper books, from The Franklin Library and Easton Press, for the donation of a nice camper van or motor home that I can use in ministry.
Most of the leather-bound books are part of the 100 Greatest books series and are in Looks New condition. They are valued at approximately $9000.00 U.S.D. since they are out of print and no longer available from the publishers. If the Lord lays it on your heart to help or swap, your camper or motor home for my books, please Contact Us. Thanks for praying about this with me.
When my house in Florida sells, I will be ready to move to the western U.S.A. for boots on the ground ministry. In California, with the mobility a Class B camper van provides, I will be doing street evangelism in gay communities like Hillcrest in San Diego, the Long Beach and WeHo gay communities and the Castro gay community in San Francisco.
A donated cargo van can be converted into a camper van. In the photo, a cargo van contains a bed, cooking area, small refridge and camper toilet plus chairs to sit on. I think the queen size bed wastes a lot of space and would instead use a futon to open up more floor space.
If someone donates a Class B Sprinter based camper van or a long tall Sprinter cargo van, either of those would be optimal for ministry use because their small diesel motor gets excellent fuel economy, which reduces fuel expenses.
Thanks for praying for this ministry and for spreading the word to the GLBTQI community that we can be saved and GLBTQI and still believe the Bible, love the Lord and serve God.
If you would like to donate
to this worldwide ministry, you may Contact Us to let us know or you can mail donations to: Rick Brentlinger, 5492 Maranatha Way, Pace, FL 32571-9351.
We are totally redesigning this website
and need a talented graphic artist
to help with topper ideas for GayChristian101. Topper size needs to be 725 wide by 100 tall. I will be doing most of the other redesign work so a new topper is what I need a graphic artist to design. I'd like our new topper to be classic and elegant, perhaps with a photo of happy ethnically diverse GLBTs.
I prefer not to use a rainbow and not to use pink or lavender colors because those are too stereotypical. If the Lord leads you to help with this, we will be thankful. Any photo used must be ethically, freely and legally available to us to use on our website. Many thanks!
