Senior Leaders

ISOT Title(s):



Pastors Lance and Laurie Coffman launched The Life Church, now known as Innovation Church, on September 11, 2005. Lance and Laurie are high school sweethearts and have three amazing kids. They believe their family is by far their first and most important ministry.

Both Lance and Laurie have been in ministry for over twenty years serving in various capacities from junior high, high school, and college pastors to senior pastor. This couple is marked by a contagious passion to see people walk in their God ordained destinies and see their dreams come to pass. Both Lance and Laurie are gifted communicators with a grace to stir up hope and the faith in others to believe God for everything He said they can have. Those that leave their meetings do so feeling encouraged and empowered to live life to its fullest. Their hearts burn for citywide and regional transformation and they believe we are walking in the shallows of the greatest revival in the history of the church.
