Top 300 Christian Blogs for Ministry // 11th Edition

This list is brought to you by Fellowship One:

There are thousands of ministry blogs to read, but do you ever wonder which ones everyone else is reading? I do, which is why I have compiled a list of the world’s most read Christian faith blogs.

Keep in mind, this list isn’t an endorsement of the blogs but rather an objective list. There is a broad scope of perspectives included, so be spiritually discerning about what you read and compare it against what the Bible says.

Why the name changed.

When I first began this list in 2009, I called it church blogs. It focused almost exclusively on the blogs of prominent church leaders and those covering ministry methodology. It featured just 60 church blogs.

But this labeling didn’t scale well. What about bibliobloggers (Biblical studies), female faith bloggers, or Christian news blogs? These are just a few of the niches that certainly offer value for ministers but didn’t fit into the original scope of ministry best practices. As the blog list grew, it created tension around who was included an who wasn’t. It nurtured symbolic annihilation by platforming Reformed and Evangelical voices while excluding female, Catholic, and Orthodox writers, who were less likely to write about ministry methodology.

Our topical criteria excluded valuable thought leaders, and it also failed to curate the consistent quality intended. It still featured some blogs with mediocre content while snubbing some gems that could bring far more value.

So I’ve broadened the criteria, increased the list’s size, and welcomed 157 new blogs to the list!

It still isn’t perfect. It is a measure of popularity not quality. But at least now, it more fairly represents the diversity of our Christian brothers and sisters around the globe.

What is a Christian blog for ministry?

Top 300 Christian Blogs for MinistryThese are blogs covering theology, methodology, journalism, academia, culture, and humor in ways that benefit Christian ministry leaders’ perspective, personal growth, cultural awareness, and ministering ability.

To qualify, each ministry blog must also have published sometime within the last 3 months, be considered a blog, have an Alexa rank of <1,400,000, and be classified as Protestant, Anglican, Roman Catholic, or Orthodox.

What is measured.

This edition, I discontinued using Compete traffic metrics and opted to only use Alexa for traffic. I also discontinued Google Pagerank (a scale of 7) and opted to only use Open Site Explorer’s page authority (scale of 100), which has become a preferred industry metric. Over the years, we have received many requests to include social metrics. So we are excited to add Open Site Explorer’s metric of Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ mentions of each blog’s homepage.

Scroll down past the list to learn how the rankings are computed and what the metrics mean.

FAQ :: Can you explain the metrics? 

  • Traffic – Alexa Rank (AR)
    Alexa’s traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of Alexa Toolbar users and data collected from other, diverse sources over a rolling 3 month period. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The site with the highest combination of users and pageviews is ranked #1.
  • Buzz Depth – Open Site Explorer Homepage Authority (HA)
    Predicts the website’s homepage ranking in search engines based on an algorithmic combination of the number of sites linking to it, the total number of links, Facebook shares & likes, tweets, and Google +1s.
  • Buzz Scope – Open Site Explorer Linking Root Domains (RD)
    The number of unique root domains containing at least one url linking to the website’s homepage.
  • Social Media Impact – Open Site Explorer Social Metrics (SM)
    The number of Facebook Shares, Facebook Likes, Twitter mentions, and Google+ mentions linking to the website’s homepage

FAQ :: How was the list computed?

  1. Over 1,000 blogs were reviewed in a preliminary screening to determine if they meet the criteria of Alexa rank, posting frequency, and topical scope.
  2. 439 blogs qualified.
  3. Data was collected for each blog from all 4 measured criteria (i.e., Alexa Rank, Open Site Explorer Homepage Authority, Open Site Explorer Homepage Root Domain Links, and Open Site Explorer Social Metrics).
  4. For Open Site Explorer Homepage Authority, Open Site Explorer Homepage Root Domain Links, and Open Site Explorer Social Metrics, the blogs were sorted best to worst for each metric and ranked 1-439. Blogs with the same metric value tied in rank with subsequent blogs taking their true rank (e.g., rank = 1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9).
  5. For Alexa Rank, the blogs were sorted best to worst for each metric and ranked. Blogs with the same metric value tied in rank with subsequent blogs taking the next sequential rank value (e.g., rank = 1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). This approach is used due to the increasing number of blogs being hosted on sites like Patheos and The Gospel Coalition, which Alexa measures as the value for the entire site rather than the blog’s url. While this approach doesn’t prevent blogs hosted on larger sites from having favorably skewed results, it does dramatically reduce these blogs from unfavorably skewing the results of other blogs (i.e., Patheos occupies only 1 rank value rather than 27 rank values).
  6. A composite rank for each blog is determined by averaging each blogs ranking from the 4 measured criteria.
  7. The top 300 blogs were published.

FAQ :: Are these metrics reliable?

Once a blog meets the topical criteria, it is objectively measured by 4 website metrics that are relatively difficult to cheat and consistent across all blogs. The metrics aren’t perfect, but it is the best formula we’ve found thus far. Check out SEOmoz’s analysis on the reliability of Alexa traffic analytics. While imperfect, there isn’t a better alternative outside of the time consuming process of getting several hundred bloggers to all use the same analytics software and participate in reporting data (impossible!).

These 60 blogs are the most popular “Christian” blogs on the web, and the diversity on the list is quite striking (from Desiring God/John Piper to Brian McLaren, and everything in between!). I was pretty surprized to find out that the two blogs I visit (and link to) most often are in positions 1 and 2. Since there are several blogs on the list I know are very solid and edifying, I’ll look through the ones I don’t know and see if I strike gold. You can see the full list here. [...]
