Jeff and Terra Mattson, co-authors of the book, Shrinking the Integrity Gap: Between What Leaders Preach and Live, sit down with us to discuss the important topic of integrity. Jeff and Terra define what the integrity gap is and explain how ignoring this gap can be detrimental to leaders. They describe the link between trauma and gaps in integrity, tell us why coping strategies can be detrimental to true healing, and why Christian leaders find it difficult to be honest about their struggles. Jeff and Terra share how leaders can get the help they need to stay healthy mentally and what practical steps church should take in vetting their potential hires to ensure safety for the people of their congregation. Finally, they show the role confession plays in shrinking our integrity gap and how shrinking the integrity gap applies to leadership in the home.
