Spiritual Life

A Letter from Pastor Paul ... 

Dear Wesleyan families and potential families,
Wesleyan Christian Academy is a place where friendships are valued and supportive relationships are built. The high priority on academics is balanced with developing the spiritual life for each student – we want to help students develop a Christian world view by giving them a chance to put these ideas and values to practice here on campus, throughout our community, and around the world.

As chaplain, I want to facilitate the efforts made by teachers and staff to give our students these opportunities. I am an ordained minister, a pastor for nearly 30 years, and the school chaplain since 1997 – I have no better credentials for this work, however, than raising a family of my own. As a dad and pastor, I share your passion to guide our children to a closer relationship with Christ. If I can be of service to you and your family, please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Serving Him,
Pastor Paul Coates, School Chaplain
