When senior pastor Gary Kinnaman announced from the pulpit of his church of 4,000 that he suffered from depression, he made it safe for Christians to admit to this difficult ailment. Now teamed with a medical doctor whose wife has dealt with debilitating depression, Kinnaman and Jacobs take the bite out of this pervasive problem.
