Talbot’s ministry began over 35 years ago with a vision. “God gave me a vision of itinerant ministry walking on foot from parish to parish in a time of great need in our culture. I believe that our current ministry is fulfilling that vision. We are rebuilding the church one parish at a time, and renewing hearts one life at a time!”

John Michael Talbot is a true legend of what has become known as contemporary Christian music. He is recognized as Catholic music’s most popular artist with $4.5 million sales and compositions published in hymnals throughout the world.

A respected (and prolific) author, John Michael’s 25th book “The Jesus Prayer” was published this September 2013 from Inter-Varsity 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, Mercy Corps and the Mother Teresa award.
