Preachers’ Daughters tackled divorce and dating in the latest episode of the Lifetime network docu-series, and the show’s cast members are speaking out about their experiences with both.
While the Colemans and Perrys dealt with the possibility of their daughters dating once again, the Koloffs worked to overcome the divorce that had taken place between the parents in their home.
Taylor Coleman, the 18-year-old daughter of Pastor Ken Coleman of City of Refuge Pentecostal Church in Joliet, Ill., went on a double date with her parents and a young man that she was interested in. Taylor seemed to be gaining her parents’ trust after they grilled her date about his celibacy and church attendance. Then the preacher’s daughter became frustrated after being scolded by her father for questionable behavior when one church member spoke out about her dancing suggestively with her friends.
Since she was sick of having to succumb to the scrutiny being a preacher’s daughter, Taylor snuck out of her window to meet with her love interest unbeknownst to her parents. Pastor Coleman spoke to The Christian Post about the challenges that came along with raising a child in the church with an entire congregation watching closely.
“The biggest challenge is letting your child be who they are and people looking at your child being who she or he may be,” Pastor Coleman told CP. “I believe this show is going to show that preachers’ daughters have a great challenge and the pastors are trying to help them meet these challenges. The challenge is meeting them where they are because if you close the door on your children, they might not ever open that door again.”
