Correlates of Perceived Emotional/Verbal and Spiritual Abuse of Adult Children of Pastors

Data analysis of an on-line survey of 120 pastors, spouses, and adult children for the North American Division showed relatively high correlations between perceptions of being emotionally/verbally or spiritually abused and self-reports of concern about substance abuse, mental health, pornography, gambling, domestic violence, extra-marital sex and difficulty with personal prayer.  These findings strongly suggest that abuse may occur within a context of family dysfunction and result in a wide range of chemical and behavioral addictions and a diminished prayer life. The church needs to be aware of these issues and provide support and intervention services to improve the spiritual life and retention of pastor’s children.

 Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 013.
