Earlier this year, I posted The Top 20 Christian Blogs Leaders Need To Be Reading In 2012 and The Top 25 Christian Leaders You Should Follow On Twitter In 2012 Part 1. These posts became incredible resources for readers.
When speaking with Scott Williams last year, he advised me to do another list mid-year with new names. Because of his website www.BigIsTheNewSmall.com and extensive church consulting work, Scott is one of Christianity’s leading experts on social media. I have great respect for his opinion.
