•"Most pastors kids can never wait to get out of that home and never come back. You are never allowed to be a child, you have to learn to present yourself before people, how to behave before people." - Pitson
Gospel artiste Peterson Githinji alias Pitson says growing up as a pastors kid was not a walk in the park.
He says he sometimes was at a loss to understand why his dad couldn't provide some things for them yet he served God.
Pitson says most pastor's kids loathe such a life and most end up hating church and Christianity in their adult life.
In an interview with Robert Burale, he shared,
"My dad is currently a bishop. but growing up he was a pastor. Being a pastors kid has its good and bad side. The good side is that the children of pastors have a good life where you have a man you can look up to.
He never shouts, never looks at women lustfully and was a man of integrity, he also accepted my friends no matter how they looked.
The negative side was watching your father struggle to provide the simplest of things and God never coming through for him.
If I wanted a bike he would not be able to provide it. Yet I could see kids whose dads were not pastors get whatever they wanted.
Most pastors kids can never wait to get out of that home and never come back. You are never allowed to be a child, you have to learn to present yourself before people, how to behave before people.
That is why most pastor's kids go astray when they join campus."
Pitson added, "Growing up you are always serving the God of your father. You learn the pattern and prayer not because you believe in it but because someone else believes in it.
You never have your own time as a family because your dad is always hosting people.
If it's not a member who has been chased away by her husband, it's someone who has lost a wife. There was always someone living in our house."
