Top 5 Church Staff Blogs

Top 5 Church Staff BlogsThese are my top 5 picks for best blogs in the “Church Staffer” category. These bloggers are not the lead pastor, they sit in 2nd chair positions, but there is high value in their words. If you work in a church, then these blogs should be in your RSS reader.

These are the best of the best in Local Church Staff Blogs:

Tim Stevens – (feed) Tim is the Executive Pastor at Granger Community Church and author of Pop Goes the Church. Tim’s blog is simply brilliant.

Carlos Whittaker – (feed) Carlos is the Service Programming Director at Buckhead Church. Los’ blog, Ragamuffin Soul, is a fresh, engaging community all its own. But just because it entertains doesn’t mean it doesn’t also challenge. Los will make you laugh, cry and think all in the same day. That’s because he posts 3 times a day! Don’t worry, it’s a lot of content, but definitely worth subscribing to.

Anne Jackson – (feed) Anne recently joined the staff of Cross Point Church and has written the forthcoming book Mad Church Disease. Anne is a master bloggger – like los, her blog focuses on community. Reading her blog is valueable, but commenting and engaging with her community is where it’s really at.

Alex McClean – (feed) Alex is the Executive Pastor (read: does almost everything) at Life Church. Alex posts a really solid mix of humor, real life and chruch strategy. Seriously, there is some diverse conent here – Alex is knowledgeable on everything from graphic design, to worship leading, to hiring staff. He’s new in his role as “executive” pastor and has blogged about leaning on the job. Alex’s journey is worth following.

Tony Morgan – (feed) Tony is the Chief Strategic Officer at NewSpring Church and author of Killing Cockroaches. “Tony Morgan” is synonymous with “strategic church leadership.” Jesus wants you to be strategic in how you lead. Read Tony’s blog.

Bonus Blog:

Ben Arment – (feed) Ben is not currently a local church pastor, but he knows the local church. He is most recently employed by Catalyst and his blog kicks tail. Wisdom and candor abound at – his blogging style is simple and hard hitting with insights highly relevant to the local church worker.

Anyone I missed? Who’s else blogs as a church staffer in a support role to the senior pastor? Do you? Leave a link in the comments.

Note: If your predominant role is leading worship – wait for tomorrow’s post.
