SELF-SUPPORTING MINISTRY

A Practical Guide

John Lees

An overview of the history of SSM and its place in the Church of England today.

This practical handbook is a timely and useful addition to the literature on self-supporting (ordained) ministry (SSM). The author, who is himself a self-supporting priest, offers an overview of the history of SSM and its place in the Church of England today with its unique opportunities and challenges. The book is sensitive to the diversity of needs and motivations of SSMs. It offers practical wisdom on how to creatively and sustainably live out this vocation. (This is illustrated by brief interview-style biographies of SSMs at the end of each chapter.) While it is primarily written for people considering or living out a vocation as a self-supporting clergy, or those tasked with supporting SSMs in training and ministerial development, it offers useful insights for anyone who works alongside SSMs. The sections on ministry in secular employment may also be of interest to Readers reflecting on ministry in the workplace.
