Session 2: Men of Joyful Fear




Michael Reeves

Michael Reeves is president of Union School of Theology. Previously he has been Head of Theology for UCCF and an associate minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London. He is married to Bethan, and together they have two daughters, Lucy and Mia.


We’ve a wide selection of engaging workshops to help us grow as Christian men.
You’ll be able to take part in two during the day and need to indicate your choice
when booking.

  1. How to grow in the joyful fear of the Lord

    Together we’ll explore what practical steps
    we can all take towards a deeper devotional
    life enjoying the fear of the Lord.

  2. Fearing the Lord at Work

    We spend at least 36% of our waking hours
    in the workplace (sometimes more!). We will
    be looking at how the fear of the Lord shapes
    the way we live out the gospel at work so that
    we honour God and point to Jesus.

  3. How to keep a men’s ministry going and growing

    We’ll think together about what it takes to
    grow men’s ministry in your church. This will
    be an interactive session led by men who are
    having a go at doing this.

  4. Useful for the Lord

    We long to be useful to the Lord in His
    service and for His glory yet, can feel illequipped
    for the task. Come and explore how
    you can grow to be more useful, wherever the
    Lord has placed you.

  5. Standing firm in the storm

    Life never goes as planned. Things come that
    will rock us and shake us. What comfort does
    the Bible give when this happens? Come and
    discover the joy of fearing the Lord when
    things go wrong.

  6. Sex & Our society & Sex & Our families

    In these two workshops we’ll see first how
    Scripture exposes, explains and offers
    redemption to the sexual insanity of our
    culture. In the second workshop we’ll explore
    practical strategies that parents/churches
    can use to prepare and protect our children
    as they face an increasingly sexualised
    culture. These workshops are intended to
    work together (so you’ll need to select both as
    your two workshop options).

  7. Youth Stream (for anyone aged 14–18)

    What does it mean to fear the Lord at
    home, school or when you’re with your
    mates? Join with others your own age
    with leaders to guide you and help you
    to work it out. The youth stream will
    run over both workshop sessions.
