For many, the pandemic has brought on feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression. The CDC reports a five percent rise in adults reporting feelings of depression. It's on the rise for children and teens as well. Ed Stetzer sits down with Church of the Highlands Pastor Chris Hodges to talk about how with a little understanding of our temperaments and some Biblical wisdom, we can win the battle over depression with God's help.
Chris Hodges is the founding and senior pastor of Church of the Highlands. Chris has a deep passion for developing leaders and planting life-giving churches. He co-founded ARC (Association of Related Churches) in 2001, which has launched hundreds of churches across the United States. He also founded Grow, specializing in training and resourcing pastors and churches to help them break barriers and reach their growth potential. Chris is also the founder and Chancellor of Highlands College, a ministry training school that trains and launches students into full-time ministry careers.
