This collection of essays, written in honor of beloved pastor, Harry L. Reeder III, points not only to his life but beyond it to the God he served.


Collected by Harry L. Reeder III’s son, Ike, and edited by Derrick E. Brite, this selection of essays on the multi–faceted and different elements of ministry is written by men who acknowledge Reeder’s influence on their lives and ministries. You will find essays on evangelism, discipleship, shepherding, and Christian education. There are writings on mission and vision, leadership and staff leadership, and on the pastor and cultural engagement.


The book is designed to be helpful to young pastors, as a guide to beginning their journey to biblical spiritual formation in their ministry calling. But it will also be useful for those further along in their ministry.
