Michael Coffman was born May 19, 1984.
All throughout his life he had the privilege of attending solid Independent Baptist Churches. In 2002 he began serving as a youth worker at Bethany Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas. In June of 2004, after struggling with his salvation for years, he accepted Christ as his personal Saviour while serving as a counselor at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp.
Two years later (2006), while attending the same youth camp, he surrendered his life for full time service to the Lord. Six months later he and his family moved to Oklahoma City to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College where he received a BA Graduate Diploma in Biblical Studies in 2010.
Since that time Michael has worked on staff at Bethany Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas from June 2010-July 2013 as youth pastor under pastor Aaron Denson. From July 2013 to June 2015, he served on staff at Faith Baptist Church in Wesley Chapel, Florida under pastor Scott Naill as their missions intern. While there, God laid it upon Michael's heart to plant a church in Zephyrhills, Florida.
On June 28, 2015 God opened the door for this endeavor to take place and allowed Michael to plant Christway Baptist Church. Since that time they have seen God provide them a church building, and move in many tremendous ways. While the Coffman family has grown to love the wonderful people of Christway Baptist Church, God has recently laid it on Michael Coffman's heart to step aside as the pastor. He feels God is calling he and his family back to Texas to serve at Bethany Baptist Church.
The Coffmans, as well as the Christway Baptist Church family, ask that you pray for God's direction as they seek to find a new pastor. They know Christway is the Lord's church and He will provide them a new pastor in His time. During this time of transition, Faith Baptist Church, in Wesley Chapel, still deeply desires to see God glorified through Christway Baptist Church. Therefore, they will aid in ensuring that there will be preachers to fill the pulpit until Christway can find a pastor.
