200churches Podcast: Ministry Encouragement for Pastors of Small Churches
About This Show
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 and Jonny speak with Walter Brueggemann, who is surely one of the most influential Bible interpreters of our time. He has authored over one hundred books and numerous scholarly articles. He continues to be a highly sought-after speaker. We called Dr. B at home and had about a 45 minute conversation about how the church might be a presence in the world, bringing hope to a slightly “lost cause” today.

Fantastic Content for Pastors of all Church Sizes
Jeff and Johnny are a couple of my favorite drive time companions. Their interactions with one another a humorous and relevant, and they continue to surprise me with the quality of guest they are able to interview - both the "big names" I wouldn't have expected to take the time to appear on a small church show, and in the people I'd never heard of until I was introduced to them on the show.
I'm also acutely aware of the sociopolitical differences I have with many of these guests, who are largely of a conservative evangelical bent, and have been regularly impressed with Jeff and Johnny's ability to walk the line between allowing those guests to be authentic, but not allow their podcast to become inhospitable to those of us who are of a more liberal persuasion. It takes no small amount of skill to pull that off. Keep up the great work, guys!
