Welcome to Banjo Butch. This blog shares my music with other instrumentalists who are learning to play. My personal videos of how to play songs and my own tablature are all FREE. But if you find something here that helps you, please consider donating a small gift to one of my sponsored ministries. Thanks! Banjo Butch

How to Donate

The idea behind Banjo Butch is to share all of my music for free, but to ask you, if my music helped you, to make a donation to one of the ministries that I am sponsoring. These are all trusted friends of mine who are out there working hard and telling people about the love of Christ, and in need of additional financial assistance. I am hoping that you might even "catch the vision" of one of these ministries and of how God is blessing it. Perhaps you will take a short term mission trip there. Maybe you will "adopt" one of these ministries and support them monthly.

3 Ways to Donate
a) Donate at the specific ministry's web page. (the pictures on my web page take you to their web page if you click on them, and under each photo are instructions on what to do once you get to the donate page).  There is also a link here to take you to the donation page at Greater Europe Mission Donate at Greater Europe Mission   To make a donation click on the link above and under "Missionaries and Projects" select "Projects." Then scroll down to "Pere and Celia Gonzalez 58755" (his name is Pere, but to make it easy on us, he goes by Peter).   Some of the other missionaries on my page are under "Missionaries" instead of under "Projects".
b) Mail your check to the ministry of your choice:
         i)  For gifts to L'Arcada or one of the missionaries who work there, the address is  GEM USA, 18950 Base Camp Road, Monument, CO 80132.  The different funds at Greater Europe Mission are:
                  David and Debbie Frank - 17050
                  Pere and Celia Gonzalez - 58755
                  Rafa and Yoli Villaba - 58764
                  L'Arcada projects - 58724
        ii)  Jeremy and Sylvia Frank are also raising support to work at L'Arcada, but they are working through a different mission agency.  The address is:
            Global Outreach, P.O. Box 1, Tupelo, MS 38802 and designate the gift to Jeremy and Sylvia Frank - 2690

c) Mail your gift to my church (Cornerstone Presbyterian, Irmo, SC) and designate it to the ministry you want to support.

If you want to use method (c) then you can mail your gift to:
      Cornerstone Presbyterian Church
      5637 Bush River Road
      Columbia, SC 29212
Designate your gift to one of the ministries on my blog, and please mention BanjoButch (so they can tell me if my blog is making a difference).

Here is a form that you can print to mail your gift to Cornerstone and designate it to L'Arcada or other ministries seen on my blog:

Or if that doesn't work (since I am still figuring out how to do this on blogger), you can copy the text below and paste it into WORD and print it from there:
