200churches Always Free!
It’s true! Jonny and I have never asked you, our 200churches family of listeners, for one, thin, dime! We’ve been podcasting for three years now, about to enter our fourth year of providing ministry encouragement to pastors of small churches – and have never made a dime!
We’ve been really squirrely about that too. Up until now, we learn and grow each week, and we allow you to join us in that process as we give you the gift of a podcast episode each week. For free. It makes us happy!
If we charge you money for stuff, and maybe some day we will, but when and if that day comes, then we have a business! It’s no longer a gift, but a business. For now, it’s always a GIFT! And we love it.
But today, I, Jeff, am going to ask for your help. Today is a special day, and this is a very personal, special request from me to you, our podcast listeners. It’s a request for you to help Jonny and Kayla Craig as they are on a special assignment.
A New Day for the Craigs!
Jonny and Kayla have flown to Florida, and today, as you read this blog post – they are meeting for the very first time, their new daughter, Eliza.
Eliza was born only days ago, and she needed a family! Jonny and Kayla were given the opportunity to adopt her. Eliza is a special little girl. She was born with Down Syndrome. She is precious.
Just five days ago Jonny and Kayla had never heard of Eliza. Today they meet her, and Lord willing, very soon, will bring her back home. In fact, they did not fly to Florida at almost a moments notice just to jump through adoption hoops. No, they went to bring her home.
So Here’s My Ask.
Would you help Jonny and Kayla with their adoption costs? Now, I did not talk with Jonny about this. As I write this, he has no idea I am doing it. I am hoping he doesn’t disagree and want to kill me for asking you. I’ll take my chances…
They took thousands upon thousands of dollars with them – and there are many thousands more to be paid before adoption costs are fulfilled. They have set up a webpage with a service called adopttogether.org.

If you appreciate what Jonny and I have done through 200churches to encourage pastors of small churches all over the world, would you consider giving to help him adopt baby Eliza? I will give, and I ask you to give generously as well. Would you?
How wonderful it would be if 200churches listeners would support them in this. When you go to the site, you’ll see they have a good start in raising the $15,000 remaining in the cost of the adoption – and I would love to think our podcast family could help them reach their goal. Of course, any amount will help.
Welcome to the 200churches blog! We have hundreds of posts covering every issue imaginable. So pull up a chair, pour a cup of coffee, and stay awhile.
