James Coates Addresses the Class of 2021

May 26, 2021

During The Master’s Seminary 2021 commencement ceremony on May 8th, graduates heard a special video message from James Coates, a TMS alumnus shepherding GraceLife Church of Edmonton, Canada. This spring, James was imprisoned simply because he refused to stop preaching and meeting with his church. His faithfulness during a time of government overreach and his willingness to obey God rather than man is a model for all Master’s Men. Watch the video below to hear what James told our graduates as they prepare for their own ministry in the midst of a hostile culture.
