Pastor Jeanette Coats

Virginia Region

Pastor Jeanette Coats serves with her husband, Bishop Duane I. Coats as Co-Pastor of Word of Faith Christian Fellowship located in northern Virginia. The two are a dynamic duo together in ministry. They have four children: Moneka, Duane Jr., Samone and Shamika; and three grandchildren: Duane III, Jordan, and Sarai. She enjoys being a wife, mother, and grandmother. She adores her husband and says, "He is my best friend and companion." With an evangelistic ministry that expands over three decades, she is at the height of her walk with the Lord in ministry. She ministers with a powerful anointing, uncompromising preaching, teaching, correcting, and winning souls to the kingdom. 

When God spoke to her about organizing a women's retreat, she thought surely He was speaking to the wrong person. In 2002, the Lord birthed Breaking Barriers Ministries, Inc. (BBM) through her.  She has shared the pulpit with other great speakers and teachers of the gospel, including Pastor Shirley Caesar and Pastor Brenda Timberlake of Gospel Today.
Pastor Coats holds a BS in Christian Education. She travels in the ministry and is an anointed and sought after preacher and teacher of the Gospel.
