Isn’t it wonderful that wherever voices and videos are shared, you can also find the light and truth of the hope we have?

Even as you’re reading this, we’re gathering online…to learn, understand, or simply renew by looking to media in many forms. And because YouTube ranks second on the list of the most popular social media platforms in 2020 (with 2 billion active users)—it’s great to know what channels are well-loved and recommended by fellow Christians.

With so much to choose from, I asked some of our Crosswalk Contributing Writers for their top picks. Here, you’ll find a diverse range of YouTubers they recommended, offering a kaleidoscope of perspectives with one common thread: to glorify God.

And while this varied list isn’t ‘ranked’ officially, or in any particular order—and might not be as known as the likes of Desiring God, The Gospel Coalition, Grace Community Church, Steven Furtick, or Ravi Zacharias International Ministries—they’re definitely worth watching and possibly adding to your own mix of favorites.

Consider it a cadre of new options to fuel your soul. Next time you’re online, tune in, and be inspired!

1. Coffee and Bible Time explains that Coffee and Bible Time is a Christian YouTube channel where women of all ages come together to learn, grow, and flourish in Christ. Sisters, Ashley & Taylor, and their Mentor Mama are passionate about sharing the truth of Jesus Christ and the gospel message. They post Christian videos weekly to help encourage and equip women to be on fire for the Lord! Grab your coffee, a cozy blanket, your Bible, and feel loved.

2. The Michael Jr. Show

Starring in the new movie, Selfie Dad, Michael courageously (and comedically) walks by faith. According to this article, “Fans of faith-based films might remember Michael Jr. for his secondary role in War Room, the 2015 movie that jumped to No. 1 at the box office. He’s headlined a few comedy home video specials—including More Than Funny (2018)—but Selfie Dad is his first feature film in the lead role. He plays a father who is facing not only a midlife crisis but also a crisis of faith.”

Check out Michael’s ‘comedy that inspires’ videos on his YouTube channel…it’s ‘stand-up’ outreach that engages audiences in the truth.
