25 Podcasts for Your Spiritual Growth

Wayne Stocks —  September 9, 2010

image As Christians generally, and in children’s ministry in particular, we must be constantly learning in order to grow spiritually.  One of the ways I do that is that I am an avid listener of podcasts.  As a volunteer, my time can be limited, and I find that listening to podcasts is a great way to continue my spiritual growth while I am driving, or working, or walking or whatever else I might be doing.

The following are some of the ones I listen to.  In case you’re curious, I listed them alphabetically by the last name of the first listed contributor – not necessarily in my order of preference.

Children’s Ministry




Radio Programs


EDITOR’S NOTE: After completing this article yesterday, Ministry-to-Children published the first installment of their new podcast in which Tony Kummer interviewed Amy Fenton Lee. You can find that podcast here. As of right now, I don’t believe the podcast is available on Itunes, but The podcast is now available on Itunes and it is also downloadable from the site. I hope that Tony continues with this podcast on a weekly basis as it will be a great addition to the Kidmin podcasting community!

    • Wendy,

      I have been meaning to check out Lifechurch.tv, and I’ve heard of most of these other guys. I will have to check some of them out. Unfortunately, I am just about at the limit of time for listening to them. :) If I get behind these days, it’s hard to get caught back up.

  3. This is great, Wayne! I listen to several of these, but there are others that I haven’t heard, but will def be checking into! I’ve got one for you, too! Pete Wilson at Crosspoint Church in Nashville. Amazing! Thanks for the list!!

  4. Great resources. I regularly listen to CM Talk and Children’s Ministry Monthly. I’ve only caught one of Tony’s so far, but it seems great!
