Much of our income comes from raising staff support for Stephen through the International House of Prayer. We are committed to living simply before the Lord so that we may give our lives to prayer and to the ministry of the Gospel. We rely on support from fund-raising through staff support at IHOP-KC (address below) for basic living expenses such as housing, food, utilities, medical care, and necessities for life. Your commitment, big or small, really does make a huge difference.
Below are a few different support opportunities to consider that would help us tremendously. We appreciate your consideration and support…we are so blessed by your friendship. Thank you for your time, your prayers and your support!
SPECIAL NEEDS (Updated April 2013):
Practical Needs - If you are interested in helping with practical needs (such as meals, cleaning, etc), please send an email to email@example.com. Right now, we are really in need of someone to help with cleaning (if local and know of anyone). In addition, gift cards for healthy meals are extremely helpful (Whole Foods, Panera Bread, and Target (for groceries) are all great options).
Medical Fundraiser - If you are interested in helping with the Venable Medical Fund, below are a few different avenues of support.
3 Ways to Give to Medical:
1. HELPING HANDS www.hhmin.org

3. INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PRAYER
Mail a tax-deductible check to the International House of Prayer on our behalf. See instructions at the bottom of this page. Make sure you include a note that says that your donation is for Stephen Venable with your check.
Monthly Support Need - We are in need of about $850 in additional monthly support due to a loss in income that happened last August. Any amount given each month, big or small or in between, is a huge blessing. Below is an easy goal to meet the need above. If you would be willing to commit to any of the amounts below (or a different amount) please send us an email and let us know! See below for different ways to give…
- 3 Individuals to commit to $100 a month
- 5 Individuals to commit to $50 a month
- 8 Individuals to commit to $25 a month
- 10 Individuals to commit to $10 a month
Prayer Covering - The most powerful gift you could give us would be to support us in prayer. In all of our endeavors, whether they be personal or ministerial, we want to be moving where God is moving and leading our lives. We also need prayer for health and wellness, especially for Karli, but for all of our family. There is truly no greater gift that could be given to our family than to simply lift your voices before the throne of a generous and loving God on our behalf.
Practical Needs - If you are interested in helping with practical needs (such as meals, cleaning, etc), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Gift cards for meals are always helpful (Whole Foods, Panera Bread, Jason’s Deli, and Target (for groceries) are all great options).
Give a Gift Online Using Paypal - You can give a simple gift to our family immediately by clicking on the Paypal Donate button below or give using your PayPal account to email@example.com. Please note that donations through Paypal are not tax-deductible and are given as gifts directly to our family.
Send a Check to the International House of Prayer (Tax-Deductible) – Tax-deductible donations to Stephen’s ministry can be mailed as a check made out to IHOP-KC (or International House of Prayer). Please include a separate note that says that your gift is for Stephen Venable so that the funds can be allocated appropriately.
