I heard the news today and you probably heard it too. Jarrid Wilson, a Southern California pastor, and mental health advocate died by suicide Monday. He was only 30 years old and was associate pastor at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside CA, under Pastor Greg Laurie. He co-founded Anthem of Hope, a mental health nonprofit helping people dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts.
The tragic news shocked and saddened the Christian community. But it reminded Janet and me that depression and anxiety are real for many, including pastors. It’s why we do what we do.
Today, wherever you are, will you encourage your pastor or a ministry leader or their spouse or mentor? The pressures they face are many. DON’T PUT IT OFF.
