Which Christian Podcasts Dominate Charts?

The top 10 list of Christian podcasts is dominated by megachurch pastors and celebrity preachers whose names are likely well-known among even non-religious Americans. However, when you take a look at the top 5, you get a slightly different picture.

The following list of the Top 5 Christian Podcasts were complied using iTunesChart.net and PodcastChart.com.

1. The Joel Osteen Podcast by Joel Osteen

Description: “Welcome to the weekly audio Podcast from Joel Osteen. Joel and Victoria Osteen are pastors of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, a vibrant and diverse church that Forbes calls the largest and fastest – growing congregation in America.”

The “Joel Osteen Podcast,” which features 30 minute messages from the Osteens, has a solid five-star review based on more than 3,500 ratings.

2. Above & Beyond: The Intersection of Faith and Sports by KIRO Seattle

Above & Beyond appears to be a brand new podcast that has already broken into the top 10 and rests right on the heels of Joel Osteen’s podcast. As of the publishing of this article, “Above & Beyond” had only published two episodes.

Description: “On Above & Beyond, former Seattle Seahawks quarterback and 710 ESPN Seattle host Brock Huard talks one-on-one about trials and triumphs, struggles and perseverance. Listen to intimate stories about how champions dealt with their greatest professional adversities. It’s stories of faith beyond just a sound bite.”

3. Are You Real | Finding Your Purpose | Discover Your Talents | Christianity | Christian | Believer | Faith | Christ Follower by Jon B. Fuller

Besides having a bizarre (but seo-friendly) headline, this podcast seems to be geared mostly toward men.

RELATED:  Why Do Christians Celebrate Palm Sunday as a Holy Day?

Description: “Jon Fuller is on a mission to be a true example of Christ in his life and in his work. He introduces you to men of faith who have walked different paths to find a true Christianity that they live out each and every day. Some paths have been bumpy and filled with debris, but through it all, grace and faith have been a sustaining force in the lives of these men.”

*Note: some charts place Jon B. Fuller’s “Are You Real…” podcast as the second most popular Christian podcast, after Joel Osteen’s podcast. Yet, others place Elevation Church at no. 3.

4. Elevation Church Podcast by Elevation Church

The “Elevation Church Podcast” by Elevation Church does not offer much of a description, other than noting that the megachurch’s pastor is Steven Furtick. The “Elevation Church Podcast” is published weekly and has a pretty extensive archive going back to 2014.

5. Joyce Meyer Ministries TV Podcast by Joyce Meyer

Bringing it in at no. 5 and beating out pastors like Tim Keller, Craig Groeschel, Rick Warren and Andy Stanley, is Joyce Meyer. Meyer’s radio, TV and audio podcasts are all popular among listeners.
