Pastor Coffey is an inspiring apostolic minister and leader. He is straight-forward, anointed, and uniquely humorous in a manner that allows him to connect with others in a very real way.
Pastor Coffey has served in ministry for 31 years. Eighteen of those years have been in service to the congregation in Portsmouth. To quote him, “it seems as though I have always been involved in ministry.” Born in Richmond, IN, in 1964, Pastor Coffey was baptized in Jesus name and received the gift of the Holy Ghost at the age of 9. Growing up in the home of a Pastor who founded a church and served the congregation for approximately 40 years, he was taught first hand that putting God first was not an option. He clearly embraces that teaching in every aspect of his life, putting God first in all things.
Over the years Pastor Coffey has served as a Sunday school teacher, youth leader and assistant pastor. Along with these duties he also served 8 years as the Indiana District A.L.J.C. Youth President. Following this, he, his wife and six month old daughter (Bethany) then set out to travel and evangelize for 5 years across the southern region of the United States. It was at that time that the Lord brought them to Portsmouth.
In addition to his pastoral duties, Pastor Coffey serves as an A.L.J.C. Ohio District Presbyter and World Missions Director.
“I would like to invite you to come and join us in service. I, along with the entire congregation, would love to worship with you.” - Pastor Robert Coffey III
