“The book is a wake-up call for the church to minister to the mental health crisis currently facing the world.” – Rev. Brad Hoefs

Dr. Jared Pingleton is a dually trained and credentialed clinical psychologist and minister who is a nationally respected leader in the mental health field. As a mental health advocate, he wants to impart his teachings to the Christian community, thus “Mental Health Ministry: The Struggle is Real” (Trilogy Christian Publishing; 2022) was published.

During pre-pandemic until today, there is still a sudden increase in mental health crises all over the world. Everyday, more and more people are hurting, losing hope, and feeling more worthless, and of course, the members of the Christian community are not an exemption.

Being in the ministry and meeting the unrelenting demands of shepherding a needy flock is labeled as a “dangerous calling” by Pastor Paul Tripp. Dangerous in a way since pastors and church leaders also have their own personal and relationship challenges and issues they need to deal with while attending to the needs of their members.

Even Christian psychologists Brad and William Johnson conclude that “ministry may be one of the most difficult jobs in the world.” It was also stated in the landmark 2014 Lifeway research report that 23 percent of pastors have personally struggled with some form of mental illness.

“Mental Health Ministry” talks about the realities that Christian leaders face. Behind every strong façade they show to their members is a struggling servant of God who is facing difficulties in their mental health.

The book is designed as a helpful toolkit that educates, encourages, and equips those who serve hurting people to bring them help, healing, and hope.
