Top 20 Blogs Every Christian Leader Should Read


Scott Cochrane – Scott is the executive director at The Leadership Centre Willow Creek Canada. I love Scott’s practical leadership insights. Few people love the local church as much as Scott.

Money and Finance

For Richer or Poorer – Hosted by Mark Asbell, this site combines sound financial principles with specific applications to marriage. I love this site!

Giving Rocket –  For pastors and church leaders needing to increase weekly giving, this site by Casey Graham is your best resource.

Joseph Sangl – For pastors and church leaders looking for a website to help their individual families with personal finances, Joe’s site is the best on the Internet. Joe is also the new President and CEO of INJOY Stewardship Solutions, which helps churches raise significant capital for new buildings, debt retirement, relocation and ministry expansion.


Big Is the New Small – If Perry Noble has the best Christian blog on the Web, this site hosted by Scott Williams is second. Scott is the Chief Solutions Officer for Nxt Level Solutions, a consulting company he founded to help businesses, nonprofits and individuals with both internal and external growth. If you want to see a creative website, visit his.

Next Generation Leadership

Jon Acuff – In addition to being a best selling author, reading Jon gives me incredible insight into how NextGen leaders think.

Brad Lomenick – Brad heads up the Catalyst Conference and movement. No one understands and resources NextGen leaders like Brad. Anyone wanting to know what young leadership is about needs to read this site.

Social Media and Technology

Christian Web Trends – Hosted by Paul Steinbrueck, this site gives you tools, resources and ideas into all things technology and social media. A must read! Paul is also the co-founder and CEO of OurChurch.Com.


James MacDonald – In 1988, along with a small group of ministry partners, James and his wife, Kathy, planted Harvest Bible Chapel in Illinois, which has grown to 13,000 people each weekend, meeting in six locations. James also hosts the incredible Elephant Room. For more information on this January 25 event, click here.

desiring God – John Piper, Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minn., is considered by many (of which I am one) as the finest theologian in America. His site would support that claim.

Ed Stetzer – Ed heads up LifeWay Research and provides a biblical worldview to current events. I also find his views incredibly relevant in a movement that can sometimes default to a traditional mindset.

Women’s Issues

Lyn Smith – Lyn’s site will touch your heart. What amazes me about Lyn’s posts is the amount of comments she generates. She really connects with her readers.

That is my list of 20, and I know it is still lacking. What additional sites would you recommend?
