Childrens Ministry Blog Patrol

Welcome to The Children’s Ministry Blog Patrol. Every month we gather links from around the blogging world related to Children’s Ministry and issues important to those who work in Children’s Ministry and gather then together here in one place. There were a lot of great articles published this month in the world of Children’s Ministry. I hope you will take a few moments to check them out.

Check It Out

To help identify what I view as the best, or most important, posts of the month, I’ve added this little graphic next to title of particularly pertinent posts. I think they’re all must-reads, but if you’re running short on time, you should make sure that you check out these articles at a minimum!

My 30 Favorite Children's Ministry Blogs (Presented by The Blog Patrol)

police-fishIn yesterday’s installment of the Blog Patrol I made a major announcement regarding the future of the Patrol.  In short, it is going to a monthly format and the articles featured will focus primarily on Children’s Ministry and kids related issues.  Tuesday, I published a listing of the 25 Best Christian Blogs based on their inclusion in The Blog Patrol.  Today, we feature the 30 best Children’s Ministry Blogs on the internet based on their inclusion in The Blog Patrol.

I ranked each Children’s Ministry related blog that has ever been included in the Blog Patrol based on three criteria:

  1. Total number of articles included.
  2. Total weeks included.
  3. A weighted average based on number of posts and timing of posts (most recent getting more points)

The Blog Patrol (April 28, 2009)


Welcome to this week’s installment of “The Blog Patrol.” I’ve tried to get back to the basics with this weeks’ Blog Patrol. In past weeks I have included more links for each day, but my goal with this process has been to include only the best posts. The problem I have been having is that there are so many good posts out there. That said, I have done my best to pick the best of the best for inclusion in the Blog Patrol, and tried to accept that that means that some good posts will be excluded. I hope that this process will help to keep the Blog Patrol more concise and useful to you the reader. If you have any suggestions for blogs that have not been featured in the Blog Patrol, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.


These are the stragglers from the prior week which I either didn’t receive or find in time to include in last week’s Blog Patrol. Enjoy!
