Monica Coleman


​As Lady of the house here at New Birth Outreach Church, Monica leads beside her husband, Pastor Carlos Coleman, in sharing the love of Jesus throughout this community. Monica has a heart for all of God's children, especially His daughters, to know His heart and to know His purpose for their lives. Her prayer is that Unite Conference will bring women from all ages and backgrounds to gather together in unity celebrating and encouraging each other to be all God has called them to be.
