my big list of college ministry blogs (so far)

I wanted to leave an extra day to gather any ideas for doing eclectic college ministry in light of yesterday’s post. If you’ve got any ideas – even wild and crazy stuff – I’d love to hear ’em. And I should chime in tomorrow on how we might reflect the Millennial characteristic of eclecticism!

Meanwhile… Earlier this week, Dan Turis of the CCO asked for the list of college ministry theory blogs I read. So, since I’m a big fan of college ministry blogging, I figured I’d put the list on here.

Some important points:

  • I’m only including blogs that have updated this semester.
  • These blogs have a wide range of usefulness; sorry I can’t annotate too much at this point.
  • I will, however, asterisk the ones I have found MOST useful or am especially intrigued by right now.
  • Don’t be overwhelmed by the size of the list – many of these are only rarely updated, and you’ll be able to tell pretty quickly what you want to keep up with.

I recognize that many college ministry blogs are written for their students and other constituents, with discussions of Scripture and updates. But we also need blogs that take a wider angle, describing either college ministry theory or methods. So if you know of more blogs of that kind, please let me know!

And to see some of the best online discussions in recent weeks, check out the weekly reviews!
