Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms with over 1 billion users. The platform is full of images (the best part of social media in my opinion) and short posts. And because links aren’t so easily shared, Instagram offers a conversational tone that can feel a little friendlier than Facebook. Instagram can be a great way to connect and engage with the world, hopefully with a little less drama than some of the other social media options.

There are so many great Christian influencers offering encouragement and biblical truth in their posts and platforms. Following them on Instagram can add an extra measure of positivity, perspective, and encouragement to your social media feed.

Here’s a list of 15 Christian Instagram influencers worth following:
