Meet Dave Coleman
Servant, Leader and Lover of the Lord Jesus Christ, spending my days sowing into others and leading others to deeper relationships with Jesus.
I serve as Watersprings Family Pastor. I was raised by deeply committed Christian parents, I prayed to receive Christ as my Savior at age six, and in my freshman year of Bible College made a solid re-commitment to make Jesus my Lord. After marrying my high school sweetheart, Sylvia, a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit would change the course of our lives forever. By 1984, we were leading the youth ministry of Hosanna Chapel in Bellflower, California where I served as Assistant and Family Pastor for twelve years. Sylvia and I led several cross-cultural, short-term missions into Mexico during those years, including mercy ministry to border town orphanages and evangelistic ministry with YWAM Mazatlan and Surfers For Missions International. Since then, we’ve been involved with several church plants as well as serving 3 years as Christian Education Director for Applegate Christian Fellowship in Oregon. We are excited for the opportunity to settle and serve the families of Watersprings, and to live so near our favorite place: Yellowstone National Park. Sylvia and I enjoy participating together in pre-marital and family counseling, as well as leading marriage retreats, family camps, and Bible study tours of Israel. We have 5 adult children and 17 grandchildren. Our lives are abundant indeed… John 10:10.
