Jeff and Jonny are pastors who want to encourage pastors of “smaller” churches. All most pastors see online are the churches that have grown into the thousands in just a few years, the ones that spread out around the city through multiple services and multiple campuses. The ministry leaders with the most influence are the mega church pastors with mega ministries, staffs, and dollars. Praise God for what He is doing in these large and influential churches! We benefit from their vision and influence.Jeff and Jonny know that there are hundreds of thousands, that have 200 or less in attendance. The work of these pastors and ministries can get lost in the shuffle, and they want to encourage, equip, support, inspire, and cheer on the pastors of 200churches – those churches with around 200 people, give or take a hundred or two! When they talk with guests like N.T. Wright, Scot McKnight, Dan Reiland, Carey Nieuwhof and so many more, they always turn the conversation to small church pastoral ministry.With humor, passion, conviction, and care Jeff and Jonny share methods and inspiration for the small church pastor. If you are a lay, bi-vocational, or solo pastor, the 200churches Podcast is for YOU!

Jeff, Thank you for this very helpful word of hope and encouragement for such a time as this. I shared this with my pastor. Sam Thomas.

Love these guys & their podcasts!

I really appreciate these two brothers for their genuineness and how they work off each other in a fun way. These two are real pastors who have a genuine concern for small church pastors, and this comes out in their dialog with each other, the topics featured and people they interview. They don't take themselves too seriously but their podcasts feature some seriously solid help and insights.
Definitely one of my favorite podcasts of all!
