In the first episode, we sit down with Dr. Andy Yarborough, pastor, and psychologist, and discuss self-care and ministry burnout. Andy and his wife Melody founded The Well Clinic in 2015 after seeing the growing need for emotional health care in their community and in the lives of church leaders. Dr. Yarborough helps us look for symptoms of burnout and educates us on how self-care can combat the stresses of ministry leadership.
“When we don’t take care of ourselves, it leaks out to the people we serve.”

Luke Marzano, whose father is a pastor and mother is a breast cancer survivor, was born prematurely. Doctors were concerned that he would never have an imagination or be creative. Luke experienced God’s love and mercy at a young age, which motivated him to help grow the Church. Luke now leads worship and a young adult Bible study, plus he is a board member at his father’s church. His wife and two sons – and the rest of the world – find him imaginatively creative.
