Thabiti Anyabwile’s Quick List of African-American, Christian Podcasts


Recently a brother tagged me in a tweet asking, “Where are all the African-American Christian podcasts and radio shows?” He was saddened by the relative lack of content driven by African Americans.


I understand the concern. For a couple of years, by God’s grace, Pure Church was ranked in the top 100 Christian blogs. Each year I scanned the list to see who was there. I could only count a handful of blogs whose primary writers were not white, the number of African Americans was even smaller.

I don’t know what the solution is since blogging and podcasting is among the most democratic and individual of exercises. People have to want to do it. But there are some good podcasts out there that I think everyone should know about and listen to. Here are a few that I find consistently edifying and helpful:

Kingdom Diversity Podcast

The Kingdom Diversity Initiative is an effort at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The Initiative “strives to seek and equip students from every corner of the kingdom to serve in every context of the kingdom.” Amen. And they put their scholarship money where their theological mouth is. Walter Strickland (@w_strickland) and Maliek Blade (@MaliekBlade) host the “Kingdom Diversity Podcast,” which “highlights voices and addresses topics pertinent to God’s people in pursuit of the Great Commission.”

On Preaching

On Preaching is the regular podcast of Pastor H.B. Charles II (@HBCharlesjr) of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL. H.B. has been preaching since his teen years and is a faithful student of the craft. The podcast, as its name and book suggest, is dedicated to the topic of preaching—helping us “preach faithfully, clearly, and better.”
