Pastor Kenneth Coleman has been battling with his daughter Taylor Coleman in front of viewers on “Preachers’ Daughters” each week, but now Lifetime network viewers are learning that the preacher is fighting for his life.
Pastor Coleman of City of Refuge Pentecostal Church in Joliet, Ill, has had to deal with raising an 18-year-old daughter who is trying to find herself in front of television cameras. However, Pastor Coleman is dealing with deeper issues off screen where he is awaiting a kidney transplant and currently on dialysis up to five times a week.
Coleman’s kidney issues stem from a rare genetic kidney disorder called Nephrotic Syndrome. While viewers of Lifetime’s “Preachers’ Daughters” witnessed doctors telling Pastor Coleman that his life was in danger because of his kidney disorder, his condition has worsened now that cameras have stopped filming his life.
Pastor Coleman has no kidney function, while his condition leaves him tired and in pain. The pastor does not receive a salary from his small church and his condition has forced him to stop working which his wife Marie Coleman admits has changed the family’s dynamic.
“We went from a two income household to one..most men are used to being a provider, it is definitely hard on my husband not being able to do it physically but wanting to do it,” Mrs. Coleman admitted to The Christian Post. “But he has helped a lot around the house when he has good days. But sometimes there is bad days where he doesn’t have enough energy.”
The pastor had a kidney scare as a teenage wrestler, but prayer from his pastor seemed to fix the problem. Years later, the condition came back with a vengeance.
