I am different than most pastor kids just in the fact that my dad only became a pastor when I was about 17-years-old. My family had moved back to Lebanon county about two years prior to my dad giving his call to the ministry. My family was always very involved in church and it didn't change when we moved. Pastor kids tend to spend more time at church than they do at home or school combined. You are there every and any time the church doors open. You are the first ones there and the last ones to leave. If anything at church breaks down, you go over and try to fix it before calling the professionals. (That might be a Pennsylvania dutch thing.)
You are expected to be a prime example of what being a Christian is. The truth of the matter is that you are just as human as anyone else. You screw up and make mistakes.Just because you are a pastor's kid does not mean you are perfect, but it does mean that more eyes are on you to see if you are going to screw up. Being a pastors kid is no picnic. Sometimes the needs of the congregations come before your own needs. Everyone knows you. You're the Pastor Kid, you can't just hang out in the background. One last thing is that everyone knows about your business. Even things you don't necessary want people to know they know. Being a pastors kid isn't always fun but hey it's usually worth it. Oh, and one thing I forgot: you are mentioned in more sermons as bad or good examples than you care to count.
