Childrens Ministry Blog Patrol

As introduced Tuesday, this week we are looking at the top blogs for those in CHildren’s Ministry based on their inclusion in The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol.

Here’s a look at where we’ve been and where we’re going:

These were numbers 11 through 20 of the Children’s Ministry Blogs included in The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol. The fact that these are in the second ten instead of the top ten is merely a function of statistics. Many of these would be in my own personal top ten if I had just picked based on which ones I enjoy reading the most!

Orange Families

#1

Orange Families

Orange Families is based on the Orange movement in Children’s Ministry to integrate families into the teaching of biblical truths. This blog is written by Adam Flynt who heads up the Family Ministry at Access Church in Jacksonville, FL. The articles on this sight deal with all aspects of Children’s Ministry,

Cap City Kidz

#2

Cap City Kidz

Cap City Kidz is the blog of the Children’s Ministry of Capital City Church in Columbus, Ohio (yea Columbus!). The articles are written by Staci Inskeep who is the Kids Pastor at the church. The articles cover issues ranging from general parenting to teaching advice. Many of the posts are specific to Capital City Church, but those that are more general are definitely worth a read!

Jonathan Cliff

Jonathan Cliff

Jonathan Cliff is the Children’s Ministry Pastor at Trinity Church in Lubbock, TX. He describes himself as “an Abnormal Children’s Pastor in many circles, as I’m not a big fan of puppets or magic tricks that cause things to spontaneously burst into flames.” And, to that, I say Amen! His articles cover issues of theology, kids in general and children’s ministry.

Glen Woods

#4

Glen Woods

Glen Woodsis a part-time volunteer Children’s Pastor. Recently, he decided to go a slightly different route with his blog. As he explains, “Rather than simply try to offer a treatment on a range of topics of interest to children’s ministry workers and leaders, I have begun to shift to a narrative treatment of my story as it unfolds, both in terms of my recollection of past experiences, and in relation to current events. Sometimes it might be whimsical. More often it will deal with heart level stuff.” Thus far the results have been very edifying to me as I thoroughly enjoy reading this blog.

Childrens Ministry Online

#5

Children’s Ministry Online

Children’s Ministry Online is the Blog of Kenney Conley. Kenny Conley is is the Next Generation Pastor at Gateway Community Church in Austin, Texas. He started his blog to fill a void in quality Children’s Ministry blogs, and he has accomplished that.
