Over the last few years, through Twitter and personal blogs, I have gained so much by networking online with other church and ministry leaders. Periodically I like to share the ones most currently influencing me with their online presence in case you have missed any of them. Since they are well known, chances are you have them on your list already. If so, this is simply a tribute. If not, I encourage you to follow their work. (Obviously some are not individuals, but an organization/ministry.)
There are others who are making a difference, even in my leadership. I chose these people/groups because not only are they making a difference and giving good content specufucally helpful to the church leadership world, they have made themselves accessible to church leaders like me also. You will likely see these leaders on stage some day at a conference. You may even read their books. These organizations have real people behind them who interact with followers. I realize we have to protect our time so we can remain effective, but I love when people are available to the people learning from them. To me that is the total package.
I tried to narrow it to 12, but instead I ended with a “dirty dozen”. In no specific order, here are my top 13 influencers currently: (If you click on their name it will take you to their blog or the word Twitter beside their name to get to their Twitter page.)
Who else would you add to this list? Who do I need to be following that I am not?
