Blogging Pastors?

April 22, 2006 — 4 Comments

Just wanted to alert you guys to this really neat post on why pastors should be blogging. How about forwarding it to your pastor or talking to him about it?

I know my pastor has mentioned it, but said he just couldn’t keep up with the news around him. But the fact is, you don’t have to be Albert Mohler, but can rather blog about your sermons, offering extras during the week for members. I think all in all, it’s extremely helpful.

Update: Well, well, well. Lifeway has a post on how to begin your own pastors blog. Good job folks.

  1. My daddy-o the pastor has a blog: . My dad was acutally the one who got me blogging.

  2. Thanks for telling me! I hadn’t known that. Very, very cool. It’s great to see pastors blogging.

  3. Blogging and webcams and podcasts are all tools that can invite the world into your service, into your walk of faith, and also expand your horizons and perspectives as you interact with people outside the church walls.

    Great post.


  4. I love your blog & this post. I will definately try to get my pastor to start a blog. As Tim mentioned, some pastors simply don’t have any time to blog, with all they’re doing.
