Dr. Conner is a pastor to me, but most importantly he is a friend. He has encouraged my growth and development spiritually and professionally. He is one of the few pastors in the central Arkansas region who has continually promoted mental health awareness, ministry, and education for churches. He has dared to forge new ways of awareness and ministry towards reducing old taboos about Christians and depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.

In an age and culture of cynicism, dissension, and hostility, his love through humility, vision and action is most needed.
