In addition to reading your favorite blog in the blogosphere :), there are a few others that are seriously worth your time. Part of what makes a leader a great one is relentless learning. A great leader is never satisfied, never stagnant, but always pressing onto new things. One way I do that is through reading these blogs.

Elevation Worship is kickin’. I’m always inspired by their musical creativity and insane zeal for God. They write incredible songs, are great people, and lead an amazing worship team. If you haven’t checked out their new album “Kingdom Come”, rescue yourself and make the purchase. One of the best worship albums of 2010. Within their blog they share what God is doing within their church, creative ideas, musical updates, and other great stuff.
I met Bob Kauflin at a songwriter’s retreat in Mount Hermon, California. I was impressed with how personable and humble he was – he actually knew my blog, talked with me, and gave me a book. Matter of fact he was giving everybody books. Before that, though, I had been reading his blog and just finished devouring his landmark book “Worship Matters”. I consider it one of the best modern books on worship. Bob has been involved with worship ministry for many years and carries a deep passion for the glory of God. Be sure to check out his music ministry, Sovereign Grace Music.
My Song in the Night is the joint effort of Bobby & Kristen Gilles. They are both a part the multi campus Sojourn Community Church. In this blog they distill invaluable songwriting advice, theological depth, and just flat-out practical stuff. One of my favorites.
Chris is a new internet friend I’ve met in the last month. The name of his blog reveals where he’s from and he is doing some great stuff in the Northern Hemisphere. Chris’s blogs are super practical, helpful, and “cutting edge” with what is up and coming in worship and church life. Enjoy.
While not always awash with worship leading insights, Carlos’ blog is just plain fun. He’s an incredible visionary, worship leader, and social media guru. If you’re interested in building an online community, read and follow Carlos. I’m always learning new things through his writing. His Digital Toolbox post has directly influenced my shopping list and given me some great free tools as well.
This is the collective blog of worship leaders Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon, & Al Gordon, fantastic worship leaders from across the pond. As you probably already know, these guys are world class songwriters and their blog is equally as helpful. Practical, deeply wise, and fun.
A few weeks ago, I noticed this site had referenced one of my posts. As I began to click through, I realized this was a fantastic site for worship leaders. Up to date, focused on community and the local church, and tons of great ideas.
