The following is my list of the Top 20 Blogs that Christian leaders need to be reading. Here is how the list was selected:
- These blogs must provide solutions to the issues that Christian leaders face.
- They must be experts in their area of discipline with a track record of success. This speaks to credibility.
- Their posts must regularly contain elements of inspiration and creativity.
- They must post regularly. Some great thinkers were omitted from this list simply because they only posted two to four times per month.
I have separated the sites into categories to assist you. Hot links are provided for your convenience.
Business Administrators and Executive Pastors
Tony Morgan Live – Tony is simply the finest strategic thinker on the Web. His book Killing Cockroaches is the finest Christian leadership book I’ve ever read. In addition, Tony’s blog inspired me to launch this site.
Jenni Catron – Jenni is the author of several books including Clout: Discover and Unleash Your God-Given Influence and The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership. She brings a completely different set of insights to the strategic process.
churchleaders.com – This site is a daily must read and provides the best compilation of blog posts available.
Serving Strong – I always read Scott Couchenour’s posts for encouragement. If you are a pastor facing burn out, start with this blog.
Brandon A. Cox – Brandon is a “man who wears many hats.” In addition to planting Grace Hills Church in Bentonville, Ark., Brandon also oversees the content and online community of Pastors.com and Rick Warren’s Ministry Toolbox. Brandon is as talented as anyone in Christendom.
Ron Edmondson – The senior pastor of Grace Community Church in Clarksville, Tenn., is one of the top five most read Christian leaders on the Internet. A true leader of leaders.
Steven Furtick – Pastor Steven Furtick is the founder and Lead Pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, named by Outreach magazine as the second fastest growing church in the nation. In my opinion, Pastor Steven is the most influential pastor under 35 years of age in America.
Cary Niehuof – The founding pastor of Connexus Church north of Toronto, Canada, Carey blogs, podcasts, writes and speaks to church leaders around the world about leadership, change and personal growth.
