Buy Deacon Bob Rice a beer


I'm figuring you know who I am since you've made it to this site, right? Permanent deacon for the Diocese of Steubenville, Professor of Catechetics at Franciscan University of Steubenville, worship leader for Steubenville Summer Conferences, and aspiring accordion player. More importantly, married 25 years and father of seven. You can find out more, if you are so inclined. 

On campus and at my parish I do a lot of ministry, but as far as the Internet is concerned, I'm honored that I've been able to bless people through my podcasts and music.


I currently run two podcasts: "They That Hope" with my good friend, Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR (who is also the president of Franciscan University). Our description is, "seeing humor and hope in a crazy world," but probably more accurately described as "ESPN meets EWTN." The other is "Speaking With Deacons," where I have conversation with deacons about matters pertaining to that ministry or ministry in the Church in general. 


I've been playing and recording music for over 25 years, and I've had the wonderful opportunity to lead worship for hundreds of thousands of people across the country, mostly through the Steubenville Summer Conferences. I'm currently working on a new album inspired by the Liturgy of the Hours with two of the women who are part of the summer worship team, Anna and Mary Brewer. More updates to come!


I'm a big fan of, "Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give" (Matthew 10:8) when it comes to my ministry in the Internet. The Lord has blessed me with many gifts and I want to use them as much as possible and share them with as many people as I can. If you're able to support me through this site, I hope to be able to do that even more. 

Ways You Can Help

You can "buy me a beer" (a one time donation) or "buy me some bacon" (a monthly membership). Because I'd like to offer everything I do for free, I'm afraid I'm not offering much "exclusive" content like some others do. However, I can provide you some "early" content, such as early releases of the podcasts and music I'm recording. You can say you saw/heard it first!

No matter how you can help, I'd appreciate it. May God bless you!
