Meet Our Pastor
Pastor Mark Coffman
I am a pastor who has been called to minister to people in every community God calls me into while I journeys this life.
My first responsibility is to my family my wife, Angie, and our two handsome sons, Westley and Toby.
My second responsibility is to my family who continues to cheer, support and gather together on holidays and occasionally throughout the year.
My third responsibility is to my community in and outside the church building. This is my passion, my love and the way God has wired my heart, mind and soul with giving me strength each and everyday.
You may be thinking where is God? You may be looking at the list and would think that the number one is God, right?
In all the above mentioned, there is evidence in which God is in all of my priorities. I consider these blessings that God has allowed in my faith journey.
God is most important in my life and always has been part of my journey. I was able to step into the presence of God at the age of 15 which took place in baptism in the Emerald Lakes in Troy, MI. My calling into ministry took place at the age of 17 at my home church in Troy, Michigan; Evanswood Church of God. I continued to explore the faith in Christ and was sanctified (or the 2nd work of grace) at the age of 20 which has continued to grow along the way with much avid flow of ups and downs.
Post high school I first attended Wayne State University and began to work in the field of education in Michigan and Indiana with experience in public and private institutions. I pursued my calling in 2004 by attending Seminary at Anderson University while teaching, ministering to youth and parents along with young adults in Indiana.
I continued to complete my Masters of Theology and stepped into a chaplaincy role at with hospice care at a local hospital. Along with that, I worked in the fields of CISM throughout the hospital and community at large. I was also able to step into an Associate Pastor role at our church in Anderson, Indiana.
This was before arriving to Troy, MI to be Lead Pastor of Evanswood Community Church to bring a vision of unity by diversity while guiding the church To Listen, To Learn, To Live, To Love, in order to bring forth To Life for the Tri-County Area and local community.
My passion, prayer and partnership is to allow God to create a community of people loving God by loving people each day!
Feel free to reach out as I reach into the community to be a blessing by being the pastor of the community and Chaplain at Henry Ford Hospital.
Blessings to each one,
Rev. Chaplain Mark W. Coffman, M.TH, CS-C, ACP
