Book Description:

Where does authentic ministry lie? The answer of this book is: in the heart.

Authentic ministry is not simply a matter of mastering professional skills or of endlessly pouring oneself out in works of service. Rather, it springs from joyful union with Christ.

Authentic Ministry offers practical guidance and spiritual nourishment for all who serve the church. Each of the nine chapters orients readers to the "one thing [that] is necessary" (cf. Luke 10:42)-abiding in Christ-while asking and answering questions both simple and profound: What is prayer? How should I respond to suffering? Who is my friend? What is theology? What does it mean to love?

This short volume originated as a series of talks delivered to various assemblies of students, pastors-in-training, and church leaders in the UK and beyond.


Michael Reeves is an author, speaker, and President and Professor of Theology at Union School of Theology in Oxford, England. He was former Head of Theology for UCCF and associate minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London. He is currently a church minister in Oxford, where he lives with his wife and children.


"Thank you, Michael Reeves, for writing this book, which I will be reading and giving away time and again! It's difficult to imagine a better tool to put in the hands of young ministry leaders to complement the more formal side of theological training."
--Dane Ortlund. Senior Pastor, Naperville Presbyterian Church; Author, Gentle and Lowly
