There’s a lot of worship bloggers out there. Here’s a list of ones that I read and recommend in no particular order. Some have large followings, some less audacious. These are the cats in the RSS feed of my Google Reader.Â Â All have something of value to offer.
My Favorite Worship Bloggers (Part One)
1.Â David Santistevan.comÂ David is a GREAT blogger, very consistent, very solid. He’s also a very good guy. About a year ago I was researching how to re-launch my website /blog and stumbled upon David. I reached out to him for advice and he led me to Standard Theme and Tentblogger.
David’s become a friend and someday I will win a cute panda for being his most frequent commenter. 🙂
2. Worship Evaluation (David Manner)Â Â This blog asks really good questions and is extremely well written. Dr. Manner is a fellowÂ IWSÂ (Institute for Worship Studies)Â alum, so you know he’s well grounded.
I ‘ve used his resources in my series onÂ Guidelines to Evaluate Worship.Â
3. Â Â Worship Myth Busters.comÂ (2 sites).Â Worship MythbustersÂ features a very interesting podcast by Rich Kirkpatrick. He gets double double kudos for winning the World Media Award as Best Religion Blogger. Rich is a very deep and insightful thinker. He’s a new friend and we did a Google Hangout the other day. Look for an interview with him here before too long.
He rocks on this post Cut and Paste Creativity: Why We Choose Efficiency over Creativity in the Local Church.Â
Â 4. Man of Depravity:Â Tyler BraunÂ Tyler is on the West Coast and blogs about theology, Â church ministry, and worship with a young adult point of view. I really like his latest post “Bring Back The Worship Wars”.
Bring it on.
5. Rob RashÂ Rob is a worship pastor in the Midwest.He often has very practical and helpful tips. I’m applying his ideas on “How To Tweak Your Rehearsal In 20 Minutes.”
6. Journey of Worship : Chris Gambill. Chris is a worship leader in Alabama. His posts are thoughtful and very solid. I resonate with his “Principles That Guide How I Approach Corporate Worship”. He’s become a friend via Google Hangout.
7. Chris From Canada: Chris VacherÂ Yes, he writes with a very Northern perspective. A good mixture of pastoral inspiration and practical tips such as the “Worship Leaders Toolkit” series.
Check these guys out, and show some Â “read, subscribe, share, and comment” love.
In my next post we’ll feature Â more worship resource sites.
