Who we are

Our Board: (under construction)


“…by God’s power accept your share of suffering for the gospel.” 2 Tim 1:8b


John Yoon – coming soon

Andy Chu –  “I was born and raised in San Francisco so my love runs deep for the city. My mother and father are not following Jesus but allowed me to go to church at a young age where they felt I would learn good morals. That little decision has affected my life greatly. My passion is for people to come and know the Father and for their identity to be roote in something more firm than this world has to offer. I love listening to people’s journeys through life because I believe those can be great lessons and so much wisdom can come from it.  I connect with the intentionality behind Kingdom Rice because it seeks to be Good News to ALL cultures and seeks to engage non-Jesus followers with Good News rather than just trying to “convert” people.”

What Steve appreciates about Andy: Besides his operational and financial experience and savvy, I appreciate Andy’s tender heart towards the Father’s heart. Andy hails from the church once pastored by Pastor Sean Curtis (legacy board member), a church I’ve served alongside for the last seven years, and Andy has always been tender-hearted, behind-the-scenes guy that gets the job done.


Steve Hong, Director – “A native San Franciscan, I am a former engineer, missionary, pastor, and guitar teacher. I love excavating stories of beauty from San Francisco and my cultural background as a way to share how God is breaking into these spaces. God has given me friendships with influential leaders in music, art, theology, and a diversity of churches and faith communities across different faiths. People in my ‘hood know me for engaging people with my uke, recumbent bike, and world view conversations over coffee.”

    I just heard Steve’s talk on the SF Chinatown book and the mission and background of Kingdom Rice sounded a little like another ministry. You probably know it already, but I thought I would just pass their website on to you anyways. It’s called “Iwa” and the site is http://www.iwarock.org/god-and-culture.html

    Thanks to Steve for his talk. I was interested in the Christian perspective on Kathy’s book.
