School Bus Driver Fired for Leading Students In Prayer

A Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Christian pastor and school bus driver was terminated last week after he violated two warnings issued by the school district and the subcontractor company that he worked for in which he was asked to refrain from leading students in prayer.


George Nathaniel, who pastors the Elite Church of the First Born and Grace Missionary Baptist Church, received separate complaint letters from the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage district and Durham School Services, a school bus operating company, in addition to his reassignment for different bus routes. However, Nathaniel dismissed their reprimands and continued his daily prayers during the children’s school ride.

“I let them know I am a pastor and I am going to pray,” Nathaniel said, according to “To fire a bus driver for praying for the safety of the children is not right.”
