Discouragement in Youth Ministry – A Conversation with Dr. Brian Albert

Dr. Brian Albert wrote a doctoral dissertation on the suffering and depression of “The Prince of Preachers,” Charles Spurgeon. During his time with Rooted at the 2022 Conference in Kansas City, Dr. Albert was kind enough to join Davis for a podcast in which he shares his insights with youth workers! Davis and Dr. Albert discuss Spurgeon’s own struggle with discouragement and despair and where we can find hope and encouragement. They tease out wisdom-principles for discerning times to faithfully endure vs. times to pursue respite. The episode ends with gospel hope for youth workers who experience discouragement and “the blues.”
