Do we, as ministry leaders, struggle with recognizing trauma in our own lives, which can potentially hinder how we serve others in ministry? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Evan Owens. Evan and his wife Jenny are the founders of REBOOT Recovery, which combines clinical insights and Christian faith-based support for those who are recovering from trauma. They're the authors of Healing What's Hidden. Together, Evan and Jason look at how we, as ministry leaders, might respond to trauma in our lives. Evan then shares some hope-filled insights on how we can find healing from our own trauma and embrace the fullness of Christ, both in our life and our ministry.

Evan Owens on the importance of addressing and processing past traumatic experiences: "If you don't deal with the trauma, the trauma will always deal with you."
Evan Owens on slowing down and being there for one another in times of need: "How did we get so busy as a Christian culture that we can't slow down enough to bear one another's burdens?"
