In addition, this short documentary aimed to serve as a ministerial and evangelical tool to better minister to Generazation Z Pastors’ Kids and Generation Z Christians as well. This documentary adapted the contribution of Anthony Gidden’s approach of Modernity and Self-identity as the framework. This approach was employed to better demonstrate the identity influencing and formation elements that contributes to the presentation of the Pastors’ Kids identity online and offline. The researcher selected three out of 10 prospective Pastors’ kids in Baguio City without any specific denomination.

Moreover, the researcher handed questionnaires that append to their representation in their social media accounts. Therefore, the produced film of the Generation Z or the Digital Natives exhibits the social media influences and sociophysical factors that contribute to their identity representation online and offline. The art of documentary filming prove to be an evident and effective medium to engage in conversation-provoking taboo in the Christian community. Thus, documentary filming is feasible distinctly a platform on creating dialogue. Hence, the following are suggested for further documentary on this topic: 1) Parental responsibility of the PK’s must be the focal point in understanding and acknowleding that their is a known difference in worldview. Parents must be intentional in comprehending the worldview of their children to better attend to them, 2) Church leaders and mentors be proactively in constantly calibrating their ministerial methods and approaches to these PKs and invidivual in this generation. Consequently, the researcher propose the following: 3) Extend research on the parent’s or family’s insight regarding the matter as to the value of the family is a key factor on the respondent’s development and, 4) Expand the number of respondents for wider pool of information with even number of gender identity.
