Biography


It all began with a vision.

"God gave me a vision of itinerant ministry going from parish to parish in a time of great need in our culture. I believe that our current ministry is fulfilling that vision. The Catholic Church has nearly died in recent years, but God is raising us to new life in Christ if we will but accept it. We are rebuilding the church one parish at a time, and renewing hearts one life at a time!"

The path our Lord has guided John Michael on throughout his life has uniquely prepared him for this time in the Church. After responding to the Lord's call, God used John Michael to bless millions of lives through his unique and multi-faceted ministry.

John Michael Talbot is considered a "Christian Music Legend" being one of the pioneering artists of what has become known as Contemporary Christian Music. He is recognized as Catholic music's most popular artist with over 4 million sales and compositions published in hymnals throughout the world.

A respected (and prolific) author, John Michael's 25th book "The Jesus Prayer" will be published this September 2013 from InterVarsity Press.

John Michael leads his very active ministry from the Little Portion Hermitage where he is the founder and Minister General of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity. His artistic and humanitarian efforts have been recognized with awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Gospel Music Association, the Arkansas Hall of Fame, Mercy Corps and the Mother Teresa award.

When a fire devastated John Michael's monastery in April of 2008, John Michael began a new format of itinerant ministry traveling from parish to parish to raise money to rebuild his community's home. It became clear that God was not only using his ministry to rebuild the monastery but to bring fulfillment to the original vision.

Today, John Michael Talbot is one of the most active motivational ministers traveling over nine months per year throughout the world inspiring and renewing the faith of Christians of all denominations through sacred music, inspired teaching and motivational speaking. This new direction has been captured on John Michael's three-DVD Collection "Nothing is Impossible" released in September, 2012. A "Nothing is Im-possible" spoken word CD and book are planned for release in 2013!

Like a modern St. Francis, John Michael Talbot's ministry is rebuilding God's Church "one parish at a time, and renewing hearts one life at a time."
