Welcome to this week’s episode where Brent sits down with recurring guest Stephen Gehring as they revisit the topic of Pastoral Care and how we as student pastors need to assess our current mental/physical/emotional/spiritual health and work towards bettering it.

Whether you’re a new student pastor stepping into a leadership role, or an experienced ministry leader this is a great episode to listen to as they talk about how to establish the methods of assessing your own health as well as different practices that you can put into place today that will begin to improve your overall health as a student pastor.
