Welcome to this month's Legacy, DUNGEON OF DEPRESSION. If you have never dealt with the blues...or that cloud hanging over your head...statistics tell me that you're exceptional from most folks in our present days. With the extraordinary challenges of the last few years, many especially in this generation struggle, whether it's temporary depression or long haul. That’s why the resources this month are hugely important! Listen in as we attempt to make sense of this challenging topic together.

In the trenches with you,



Your worship leader gets diagnosed with strep throat and cancels two hours before your event...the major actor in your drama forgets his find out after it's too late that there's a major concert at the school and half the youth group doesn't show up...and those who come "yawn" their way through most of the night. In short, it sure wasn't the night to build your self-confidence.
John Milton once said, "The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell or a hell of heaven." No...I'm not "A Fraud."  But there are many times during my years in full-time ministry when that thought has crossed my mind.


Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide in our country and the third leading cause of death among teenagers. In fact, 20% of our kids will experience some level of serious depression before they reach adulthood. Those statistics are alarming to say the least...too alarming not to address the topic in our youth services.
As leaders, I think one of the most important things we could ever coach a student on is how to make a strategic comeback after an epic failure (or any failure for that matter). Helping students realize that "at the very moment they are most tempted to run away from the Lord is the time to run to Him" is crucial for their spiritual lives.


If I can admit I'm still a work in will know that Jesus can give you hope too.
The Enemy never reminds you of all the places you're pleasing the Lord...but he will remind you of all the junk...even after the Lord has already forgiven you.
