here’s what i’ve got in my blog reader these days. i try to keep it paired down — i just don’t have time to read hundreds of blogs every day. but these are the ones i look at at least once a day (well, i look at my blog reader at least once a day — often more than that; but i skim unless something catches my attention). there are dozens of others – particularly youth ministry blogs – that i check in on from time to time, but aren’t listed here. And, if i find that someone hasn’t posted for a year, i unsubscribe. a few of these are very close to that!
the categories are somewhat arbitrary – they’re just what work for me!
youth ministry (this is a tough category for me, because there are SO many wonderful youth ministry blogs. i read dozens and dozens more than this on an occasional basis. but these are the handful i find the most thoughtful and challenging, or, frankly, are just friends of mine in youth ministry that i want to stay current with.)
fuller youth institute blog
ymcp (these youth ministry bloggers are current or former participants in my youth ministry coaching program)
journey (my church)
brian berry (generations and high school pastor, close friend)
josh treece (the former middle school guy)
todd tolson (former discipleship guy, and long-ago middle school pastor, now a church planter)
christina robertson (christina is our middle school pastor, and i’m one of her volunteers)
ed noble (lead pastor, and friend of over 20 years)
