Pastor's kids are normal kids, living under the microscope. On one hand, there's nothing "special" about them. On the other hand, their family identity as a "pastor's family" places them under scrutiny in some pretty unique ways. So, how can youth pastors be prepared to care for the pastor's kids in their ministry? And what if those pastor's kids are their own kids?! This conversation with Barnabas Piper includes the following What are some ways that PK’s needs are different from others in our ministries? You talked to a lot of other pastors’ kids to write your book “The Pastor’s Kid.” What from those interviews and conversations continues to stand out that would be helpful for our listeners to hear. When you wrote your book “The Pastor’s Kid” you weren’t a pastor. But you are now. How did that book help you process your own upbringing and parenting style in a way that prepared your daughters for being pastors kids? How can youth workers show special care to PKs without feeding into entitlement?

In this conversation, Mike talks with Barnabas Piper about Doubt and Deconstruction. It's only natural for teenagers to experience doubt as they begin to discern what they really believe about faith and the Bible. In many churches, doubt feels like a dirty word and students keep their doubts to themselves. This has increasingly led to teenagers and young adults who deconstruct their faith only to find that it doesn't mean anything to them anymore. What's the difference between "Unbelieving Doubt" and "Believing Doubt?" What is the role of suffering in cementing students' faith? How can youth workers create a culture where doubt is welcome? What is deconstruction, and what are the different forms of it?
