On episode 98, we welcome Pastor Michael Walrond to discuss mental health in the Black community, his medical journey and overcoming death on multiple occasions, how he found faith amidst the vast absurdity of life, becoming inspired by Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning, his friendship with Jamal Joseph of the Black Panthers and meeting Afeni Shakur, how Tupac’s music inspired a wave of mental health awareness, and why existential crises tend to create a sustainable sense of purpose.

 

Michael A. Walrond Jr.—affectionately known as Pastor Mike—is the Senior Pastor of First Corinthian Baptist Church (FCBC) in Harlem, New York. Pastor Mike is quickly rising as one of the most prolific and sought-after teachers and preachers in the country. Considered a visionary, cultural architect, and game-changer by his peers, Pastor Mike has not only catalytically changed the traditional prospective of black church, but he is innovatively shifting the paradigm of Christian understanding and culture. Within two years of his leadership at FCBC, the church experienced exponential growth, tripling its membership. Over the past eleven years, membership at FCBC has grown from 300 to 10,000 members.
