You either are one, know one or have observed one in his or her natural habitat. Pastor's Kids (PKs) are an interesting breed. They have their share of joys and challenges, so we assembled a group of them to dish a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to be at church every time the doors are open, feel held to an arbitrary (higher) moral standard, and live through the ups and downs of life in this imperfect place called "church."
Son of a Preacher Man
Tim Willard's dad is a pastor, and Tim learned early on that life in that line of work isn't always rosy. In fact, Tim's childhood church went through a split, and the turmoil caused Tim to walk away from the church and his Christian faith for a season. Listen in as Tim, author of Veneer, shares the reality check he got when it comes to a fellowship of believers and what it was that ultimately drew him back.
