About this item

The distinctive contribution of volunteer clergy has never been more important to the church than it is today.

SSMs are wonderfully non-standard. They have a range of motivations, working patterns and training needs, and are deployed in a wide variety of ways. Sometimes under-used, sometimes overworked, they are often offered few opportunities for role development after their ministry begins. They may feel unrecognized and under-supported, with church leaders making wrong assumptions about their ability and willingness to be involved.

But as the church turns increasingly to its volunteer minsters, there are encouraging signs of more creative deployment of this great resource. John Lees’ lively, authoritative guide – featuring many stories and case studies – will be welcomed by those already involved in, and those considering, this ministry. Celebrating the gradual reinvention of SSM, it offers strategies to greatly improve working practice for those in an associate role.
