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.
