I’m on the hunt for bloggers who are writing specifically to and about Canadian church leaders.

Several mornings each week I receive a healthy dose of information and inspiration from blogCanadian church leaders who are posting about what God is up to in their part of the Great White North, but I’d love to find more writers, compile a list, and share this list throughout our network from coast to coast.

 
 

Among the bloggers I read regularly are:

o   Carey is lead pastor at Connexus Community Church, with campuses in Barrie and Orillia, Ontario. His posts are insightful and authentic.

o   Chris is worship leader at Orangeville Baptist Church in Orangeville, Ontario. Chris’ posts keep me informed where God is at work in Canada’s worship scene.

o   Kevin is a pastor at Port Hardy Baptist Church on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Few bloggers in Canada maintain his level of quality and quantity in writing.

o   Jeff is associate pastor at PORTICO in Mississauga, Ontario. His posts are concise and direct. Love that.

o   Mike is senior pastor at Kelowna Gospel Fellowship in Kelowna, British Columbia. His posts provide an important window into what God is up to in a local church in “real time”.

What blogs to and about Canadian church leaders do you read? Let me know and I’ll promote them to other Canadian church leaders across the country.

  1. Hi Scott – thanks for including me in this list. I read a couple of those ones too but a couple were new so I’ll add those ones to my reader. Thanks!

    Some other Canadian bloggers who I read –
    Aaron Armstrong at Blogging Theologically

    Jay Duncan at DuncanAfrica Guitars

    Stephen Brewster at StephenBrewster.me
    Stephen is a Canadian on staff at a church in Nashville. His thoughts on creativity are inspiring and motivating.

    Jeff Somers at Worship. Period.
    Jeff is the Worship & Communication Pastor at a church in New Brunswick. He has great insight for worship leaders.

    Reid Greven at The Ballad of Mr. Fun
    Another Canadian on staff a church in the US – a small little place called North Point in Atlanta 🙂

  2. Scott:

    Thanks for the mention. And I will also will enjoy a few of these that I haven’t been reading.

    Here are a couple more you might want to check out.

    Dave Carrol at bigearcreations.blogspot.com

    Dave is a leader at Freedom House, a downtown church in Brantford, ON. He is a little edgy and sometimes off the wall, but right on when it comes to the church and the impact that we can have on our community.

    Rob Powell at robpowell.blogspot.com

    Rob has a varied background in ministry that has included university chaplaincy, campus ministry, church planting and ministry oversight. He coordinates Campus Ministry on College and University Campuses across the country for the PAOC and has great insight and ideas.

  3. Not sure if this fits your mandate, but I can speak to some of the Canadian Children’s Ministries blogs and leaders that I follow:

    Cindy Rose at kidZvillage (http://www.kidzvillage.ca/kidzvillage.ca/e-NEWZ/e-NEWZ.html)

    kidZvillage is the Children’s Ministries Department of the Western Ontario District of the PAOC, but the kidZvillage network and e-newZ currently reaches over 400 people on a weekly basis. It’s a great way to hear about new (and old, but really good!) resources for kidmin, discover networking events in various cities across Ontario and even Canada, and to find inspiration for own Children’s Ministry whether you are in the big city of TO, the farmlands of Leamington, or in the brisk northern regions like Timmins.

    Nicki Straza at No Mediogre Kids (http://nomediogrekids.blogspot.com)

    It’s not a spelling mistake – it’s “Medi-ogre”! Nicki has a heart to see kids become leaders, even at the youngest of ages, and furthermore desires to see kids serving as Christ-like leaders in our churches and communities rather than settling for mediocrity. Check out her website to get a poetic understanding of her coined term “Mediogre”.

    Amber Smith at Glo Media: Bright Ideas for Children’s Ministry
    (www.childrensministryideas.ca)

    Yes, this is my shameless plug about my own kidmin blog…please don’t judge me! I am the Creative Director for and a Children’s Ministry Consultant through Glo Media, which is a Canadian-based Children’s Ministry Resource Company.
    Sure you’ll read posts referring to Children’s Ministry resources and opportunities world-wide, but it will be shared from the Canadian context which is, in my opinion, undeniably lacking in the Children’s Ministry realm.
