with depression but for various reasons feel unable to tell their churches about it. Similarly,
church members often see the problem, or struggle themselves, but don’t know what to do
or how to help.

This collection of real-life stories from pastors who have suffered from depression exists to
encourage others in similar positions and to help church members better support their
pastor when depression strikes.

  • Written by pastors who have/do struggle with depression
  • Multiple stories present a variety of viewpoints and experience
  • Offers practical advice on supporting pastors who are suffering with depression
