With a background in therapy and personal experience as a clergy spouse, Dr. Clarke shares about the common stressors and resources available to pastors. We discuss how congregations, denominational leaders, and academic leaders can foster resilience in their pastors. Stay tuned for Rick and Lindsay’s takeaways after the interview.
