On comprehending life’s griefs and suffering with hope with Dr. Mike Gray.

Ministry Minded, Episode 69.

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I am thrilled to be joined once again by my dad, Dr. Mike Gray, to have a cathartic conversation regarding my mom’s incredible season of turmoil and battle with depression.

Mike Gray is the senior pastor of Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina, where he has been serving the Lord faithfully for over 20 years with his wife and family. If you would like to connect with Dr. Gray to chat about pastoral ministry, especially along the lines of pastoral depression, feel free to do so by sending him an email.
