Unseen Leadership Episode 28: Kara Powell on Handling Anxiety and Depression in the Church

In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Josh Hunter are joined by Kara Powell who is the Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute and a faculty member at Fuller Theological Seminary. She’s also the author of Sticky Faith, Growing Young, and a brand new high school curriculum titled Faith in an Anxious World.

During their conversation, they discuss affirming leadership in others, when to pursue higher education and seminary, and how to handle anxiety and depression in the church.


“Little by little we travel far” - J.R.R. Tolkien

“If you want to read more, always keep a book with you.”

“I wish I would have talked more freely about God with young people.”

“It is easy to judge my day based upon how much I cross off my to do list. Instead, I’m constantly trying to reorient my compass to say my day is based on how well I loved God and how much I loved others as my self.”

“One of the biggest mistakes we can make when it comes to anxiety and depression is simply not talking about it enough.”

“My concern with personality tests is that it becomes our excuse to not grow.”
