Dear Friends and Supporters of The Poached Egg,
I am writing to make you aware that I (Greg West) and The Poached Egg will be needing your help. After serving with Ratio Christi for 5 years, our partnership is coming to an end. I desire to see that the great work being done on campus continues and that, despite no longer being a part of RC, I can make The Poached Egg an even better resource for those defending the faith and sharing the gospel on campus or in the community.
The Poached Egg was recently ranked the #33 Christian Blog on the internet by Feedspot with blogs such as Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and Challies being ranked ahead. TPE was one of just a small handful of apologetics focused websites on the list. It was exciting to see the reach that TPE has already achieved but I would love to see it go further. If all goes to plan I will be able to gain assistance from a small team and we will make several exciting (and long-over-due) upgrades in the months ahead which will take The Poached Egg to regularly receiving well over 1 Million views per year, impacting thousands of people for the sake of the Gospel!
I have approximately 30 days to transition and am asking for you to partner with me in this exciting (and slightly terrifying) new season. I currently run the site on my own and The Poached Egg has been the only source of income for my family for several years. Therefore, there is a level of urgency to securing a foundation on which to implement the improvements to the site and my ability to commit to the blog full-time is in jeopardy.
I have determined that the best way to secure this foundation is to do a short-term fundraiser using GiveSendGo which is the #1 Free Christian Crowdfunding site (think a Christian version of GoFundme). I will need your prayer, personal support, and shares to be successful. Trust that it is very hard for me to ask this of you and I do not do so lightly. I do not like being in this position but I have heard far too many stories about how The Poached Egg has changed lives to allow it to diminish. I trust God is faithful no matter the outcome, but I have seen His people do great things together before and I know The Poached Egg community is amazing. I am asking you to rally for the site and for me personally. Please click the link below and share it out to the Christian community, particularly those who care for Apologetics. Your prayers and notes of encouragement are more than welcome also. Thank you for your support in the past and moving forward!
Yours in Christ,
