I am attempting to lead a church. As a consummate seeker of wisdom, I have dozens of blogs on my Google Reader list, and I could have listed so many more here, but these are the ones I never miss the opportunity to read. I read mostly for purpose. I love fun posts, but because time is precious, I am purposeful in what I read frequently, hoping it will help me in the work I do. Each of these sources is different, but all help shape my current thought process.
Michael Hyatt Michael is one of the best leaders I know and he is so accessible. I may be stretching here, but think I can even call him a friend.
Catalyst Space Blog Catalyst pulls some of the best of church leadership together for this blog.
Mac Lake Mac is a really nice guy, but he’s hitting home runs in his posts about leadership.
Collide Magazine Collide is a cutting edge Christian publication. You can frequently bump into the Collide people at conferences too!
Tim Stevens Tim is a great leader and shares candid truth at his blog. (I hear a new design is coming soon too!)
Stuff Christians Like The writer here is Jon Acuff, but he truly tries to make this less about him and more about his heart for the Kingdom. He’s also one of the most honest, sincere and humble guys I’ve ever met.
Church Relevance It amazes me the influence Kent Shaffer has. Everywhere I go people talk about this blog. I know why.
Keven Eikenberry I haven’t been reading this blog long, but it has quickly become a must read for me. Great content.
Steve Roesler Steve has tremendous leadership insight. Though written for more secular audiences, I always find practical content for what I do.
Jenni Catron Jenni is one of the sharpest young leaders in the church today. I continue to hear about the influence she has at Crosspoint and the difference she is making. I love reading her frankness about struggles to balance work and play.
This is my list for today. I have others that I also follow closely and may do another list later, but for now, what do you think?
Who is missing from my list?
