And as a social media platform—yes it’s a social media platform—YouTube is the largest and most popular in the US.
At the end of 2017, I kicked off my own YouTube channel so I could create a permanent record of everything I know about Jesus, faith and the Bible for my three daughters, Chelsea, Ella and Jordyn. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been doing this for a while on that platform, but with more people than ever watching YouTube, I thought I’d post devotions there as well.
With so much content being uploaded daily, it’s easy for the few Christians on YouTube to get lost in the crowd. There are a growing number of Christians creating amazing content on YouTube—and I’m not just talking about my boss Andy Stanley. So, here’s a list of 10 YouTube channels—in no particular order—that I watch regularly and recommend you subscribing to today.
NOTE: Not all of these are “Christian channels”, but they are channels made by people who are followers of Jesus. And as of writing, all these channels are posting videos regularly.
1. The Bible Project
If you’ve not checked out The Bible Project’s YouTube channel then your missing some of the most creative presentations of the Bible ever. Ever. Short, super informative and incredibly creative, these guys will keep you informed and entertained for hours!
2. Think Media with Sean Cannell
Sean used to be a student pastor, but now uses his channel to teach people how to win on YouTube. Sean provides tips and insights, as well as product reviews on his Think Media channel.
3. I Am Second
This YouTube channel has been around for some time now, and features the testimonies of some big name stars who are followers of Jesus. Everyone from Kathy Lee Gifford to the Duck Dynasty family share how faith has changed their lives.
4. Chelsea Crockett
Chelsea is a 19-year-old YouTuber who posts vides about everything from make-up tutorials, to bible reading plans. The Georgia resident has more than 1.5 million subscribers on her YouTube channel … and I’d be more than happy if my three daughters we’re among them. She’s pretty inspirational.
5. John Crist
Chances are, even if you’ve not heard of John Crist, you’ve probably seen him—whether it’s his Christian Girl Instagram video or his Christian Mingle Inspector videos. John is a stand-up comedian, and every video on his YouTube channel is hilarious.
6. Trey Van Camp
Trey is a dad and pastor who uses his YouTube channel to document his journey as a Christian leader seeking to make a difference in the world. His videos cover everything from Christian leadership to family life … and most are under 10 minutes.
7. The Bro_Skii
I just recently found Bro_Skii’s channel, and I’m so glad I did. His videos are quick-paced, loud and funny! Basically, Bro_Skii covers various Christian topics with humor and humility. You’ll love him after the first video … trust me.
8. That Bold Life
Jeff Evans’ YouTube Channel is dedicated to educating and motivating Christians to make a difference in the world. Jeff has playlists covering everything from daily devotions to sermons.

10. Jon Jorgenson
Jon is a spoken word poet, author and speaker who has been watched by more then 15 million people! He regularly posts sermons, devotions, spoken word insights and vlogs. All the content on his YouTube channel is killer. You’ll be glad you subscribed!
Ok, I need to add one more …
11. That Reyes Family.
Alejandro Reyes does a great job on his YouTube channel of documenting the fun, inspiring and entertaining parts of his family life with his wife Sarah, and children Sadie and Bella. These videos are family-friendly and encouraging.
So there you have it 10 … no 11 … Christian YouTubers you should be subbing (that’s YouTube talk for subscribing to) and watching. And of course, I’d love if you checked out my YouTube channel too for weekly two-minute devotions, Church social media tips, and other things.
So … who is missing from this list?
