In this episode of the Simply 127 podcast, Sara Beth chats with Drew Raynor. Drew is a husband, pastor, and adoptive father. Drew and his wife Taylor began to see adoption as part of their story through their time at Imago Dei Church in Raleigh, NC. They now have three biological children and one adopted child. Drew always knew that he wanted to be part of a church plant. Seven years ago he and several others decided to plant a church in Cary, North Carolina.

Drew talks about how adoption changed his relationship with God, his marriage and changed him personally. He shares how his family is uniquely engaged in the work of caring for orphans and vulnerable children through their family business in partnership with 127 Worldwide. As a pastor, he also explains how the church can engage in caring for orphans through adoption.
