Chap Betts, executive director of The Apollos Project, provides a grace-saturated way to encourage your pastor and minister to his children. He states:
“Too many children of pastors are casualties in the spiritual battle. After seeing the inner workings of the church, many do not want anything to do with the Lord or his people. As a teenager, I almost walked away from my faith because of the hypocrisy and disunity I saw in my church. But in my conversation with this pastor, I was momentarily speechless as I realized how little I had thought about this important question. Why? Because the church that I had shepherded for 25 years had done an excellent job caring for my own children. Today they are 22, 20, 18, and 16, and have fond memories of our relationships there. What had my own church done that so few churches do well? What can churches learn?”
Betts goes on to give readers seven ways in which the church can foster a healthy environment of grace and growth for PK’s (pastor kids). Help your pastor be a better shepherd by helping him shepherd his children. Read more here.
