Pastor's Kids: Perceptions and Experiences of Family, Friends, the Church, and God

This study explored how the experience of being a pastor’s kid impacts a person’s relationship with God, their family, their friends, and the Church, and how they perceive and have experienced these institutions and relationships throughout their lives. Ten pastor’s kids participated in one hour long interviews, with questions ranging from general information about themselves to more pointed questions about how being a pastor’s kid has impacted different areas of their life.


The Mediator - Volume XIV, Number 1 July 2019


The present Mediator issue is an exercise in Wesleyan theology. We begin with a study of pneumatology from a Wesleyan perspective, with special emphasis on implications for the Church (Davis). This is followed by four articles that explore experiential aspects of theology as demonstrated by Wesleyan-Holiness women (Pring) and as recommended for work with children (Lotha and Olumbe) and adults (Ning Ngaih Lian). Rounding out this issue, once again we feature the abstracts from the theses and dissertations of the current graduates from APNTS’s various degree programs.

Passing the Faith: ‘From Generation to Generation’

Nearly 50 percent of Canadian teens never attend religious services, and one-third say they have “no religion” – both all-time highs in Canada. What cultural, social, familial, and congregational influences shape and reflect young people’s approach to Christianity? What implications might these trends have for the current and future state of Christian denominations and congregations? What sociological, theological, and practical implications arise from this data?
