D.J. Coleman is passionate about joining God in His ministry of reconciliation. Driven by a desire to minister with excellence, D.J. completed his Doctor of Ministry in Church Leadership and Community Witness at Candler School of Theology. There he developed an interactive, seminar-style training to educate and equip church leaders for effective multiethnic discipleship. He has pastored in various ministry areas, from children’s ministry to student ministry to multifaith engagement. He believes every venue in church should be a space for every race and is excited to share about his experience as the leader of an intentionally multiethnic student ministry.
D.J. currently lives in Marion, IN with his wife and three children. As Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Indiana Wesleyan University, he is grateful for the opportunity to educate and encourage students in their calling.
