Anxiety is on the rise worldwide and is the most prevalent of mental disorders. On October 28, 2021, Tim Peterson, Outpatient Clinical Supervisor at Laureate Psychiatric Hospital in Tulsa, discussed this subject with ministry leaders, church staff members, chaplains, lay ministry leaders, and parachurch ministry leaders at a Bright Tomorrows Breakfast Seminar.
