April 8th, 2014

This week in Trending Links, we focus your attention to a website called, The Walking Dead Gospel. We also point out a blog post from an attendee of YS Team Training, take a look at church social media and Easter, and the top 300 Christian Ministry Blogs.

Church Social Media After Easter

We all know that the Easter season is one of the busiest times of the year for new attendees to our churches. However, have you thought about how you and your ministry will use social media to connect with all of those new people, or how you will use social media to reach out to those in your community who may be looking for a place to attend this Easter? Josh Burns gives some great thoughts on a social media plan, as well as offers a free download for an outlined social media plan.


It's all the latest rage since the introduction of Twilight to our youth culture: zombies and vampires. It's carried across the major motion picture screen to the smaller (sometimes) screens in our own homes. Join Jonathan McKee as he follows along with the hit series, The Walking Dead, and provides discussion guides for each season and episode. These are a great resource for parents, your volunteers, or yourself if you want to know more about what the show is all about, and why today's teens are captivated by it.

Top 300 Christian Blogs for Ministry // 11th Edition

“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…”
