“Well done, good and faithful servant." Every ministry leader wants to hear these words when they meet their Lord. But what does successful ministry look like?

There are many books on leadership strategies and church structures, but this one looks at what matters most: the character and attitude of church leaders. It recognises that the spiritual health of the church leaders in large part determines the spiritual health of the congregation and therefore the success of the ministry.

In this short, punchy, challenging and at times surprising book, Rico Tice draws on decades of experience in church leadership to call fellow pastors and others with oversight of areas of church ministry to define success biblically, fight their sin, lead themselves and serve their churches.

A must-read on pastoral leadership for pastors, elders, worship leaders, youth leaders and anyone else with a leadership role in church ministry.

John Stevens

National Director, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, UK

There is a crisis of confidence in leadership in our culture because so many in authority have failed to act with integrity and honesty. Tragically this has been replicated in the church as once-respected leaders have too often been revealed to be false teachers, hypocrites, abusers or self-servers. This book is a timely warning and encouragement to pastors and other church leaders to guard their hearts against sin so that they serve Christ and his people faithfully. Rico writes with clarity, honesty and personal vulnerability as he opens and applies the Scriptures. This powerful word is just what we need to hear.

Andrew Wilson

Teaching Pastor, King's Church London; Author, God of All Things

Faithful Leaders is a joy to read. Full of wisdom and focused on themes that leadership books ought to be about (but often aren’t), it is somehow both challenging and encouraging at the same time.
Reading it made me reflect, and write notes in my Bible, and pray. Wonderfully done.

Carrie Sandom

Director of Women's Ministry, The Proclamation Trust

I suspect many of us, not just church leaders, spend too much time chasing after success in the eyes of the world (whatever that might be) instead of pursuing faithfulness in the eyes of the Lord. This book is a helpful and much needed corrective.

A challenging book to pursue faithfulness

Craig Green, 7 Apr 2021

The book begins with Tice reminding us that it is easy to get caught up in with the worlds definition of what success looks like. i.e how big your church budget is, publishing deals, congregation size etc. and showing that what success looks like to the world is not necessarily how God defines success. I enjoyed the section on godly character and ‘correctly handling the word of truth’ and not just handling the Word but living it out, stressing that you must lead by example.... continue reading


"No platitudes, just hard-won wisdom."

Bethany Davidson, 27 Apr 2021

He primarily writes to an audience of fellow pastors, but the core messages apply to anyone in a leadership position, regardless of their background and specific duties. For that matter, the majority of what he writes applies to any Christian, and I especially appreciated his stern and loving warnings against secret sin.... continue reading


A short, helpful book on godly leadership

Andy Cassler, 10 May 2021

Although I’m not a pastor—Rico Tice’s primary audience for his book, Faithful Leaders—I found this quick read to be helpful in thinking about my own spheres of family and personal ministry. The book’s subtitle, “and the things that matter most,” is related to four specific areas.... continue reading

“Pastor the Pastor”

Great book for Christian leaders. It points out the things a leader must get right before he trys to lead others and keep right before the Lord as he grows. Must read for deacons, elders, heads of household.

“Challenging Read”

(Review written for 'Faithful Leaders (ebook)')

When you first read the different chapters of this book you can take it that this is for Pastor’s and Ministers but the deeper you read that it applies to all areas of ministry and leadership. This book is extremely challenging and can clearly see areas of life which can effect our relationship and ministry, so when reading this book you need to read it with an open mind and be prepared to be challenged and willing to change.

“Excellent and necessary”

This book has spoken to me in a fresh way. I’ve been a women’s Bible study leader for many years. It’s easy to fall into a kind of routine. I’m so grateful for Brother Rico Tice for this reminder to define success, fight your sin, lead yourself, and serve your church!

“Excellent book written with honesty, integrity and authority”

Excellent book written with honesty and integrity. This book encourages accountability for leaders and prayers for them as they carry this important responsibility of leadership for the flock.

“Should be compulsory reading for leaders”

I have been in lay leadership at different times since becoming a Christian over fifty years ago and commend this book as compulsory reading for anyone in Christian leadership roles. It is honest, biblical, challenging and written with humility and warmth. If anyone things they are being called to leadership this will tell you to check your motives and inform you of the servant heartedness you will require.
