Stand with pastor arrested for following
God, rather than man

Pastor James Coates is a faithful pastor and follower of God.  As a result, he ended up in jail.

Pastor Coates leads GraceLife Church in Alberta, Canada.  When the government issued edicts that limited the free exercise of worship with overbearing COVID-19 restrictions, he chose to follow Christ.

In true Gestapo form, government officials attended one of the church’s services in February and then charged the pastor with violating an order to shut down the church by the end of January.


According to Breitbart, Pastor Coates turned himself in, but rejected an offer by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to release him from jail if he promised to stop holding church services on Sunday.

As of today, Pastor Coates remains in prison, but has an appeal hearing pending.  He is being represented by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which defends the constitutional and religious freedoms of Canadians.

  1. This to was put to God’s use, I believe he is there to preach the word of God to the prisoners who probably were denied a visiting preacher. So God allowed him to be placed in prison. I believe that most of the disciples were also imprisoned at one point in time, but we need to pray for Coates to be treated properly and that the prisoners he is to convert, he can pass God’s word on to them,

    1. Hello Roving Cowboy, I sure appreciate your input! As much as I hate to say it, Canada is even further out there than ours ever thought about.
      If I lived up there, I would head to the woods, and the strange ones would do well to cut my place a wide birth.
      That’s why I am out of this place as soon as I get that evil woman off my property. I already got plans that you would enjoy being a part of…
      But Pastor Coates is always in my prayers, and I hope all #OurCircle is keeping his name heading to Our Dear Lord GOD as much as possible.
