Spiritual Life

Chaplains Welcome

Welcome to the Spiritual Life section of the school website. These notes, videos, and photos reflect the commitment this school has made to ensure that Christian principles are taught, developed, nurtured, lived out, and put into practice. It is our mission to provide a great environment for training and equipping future leaders. 

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 by calling the school office or emailing me at pcoates@wesed.org.
