Dr. George Coon, Senior Pastor
Dr. George L. Coon
Pastor Coon has been the Senior Pastor of Northeastern Baptist Church since 1993. He and his wife, Linda, have two children and five grandchildren. (listen to recent sermons)
Pastor Coon was saved at an early age while growing up on a farm in northern Michigan. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bob Jones University, a Master of Divinity degree from Grand Rapids Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctorate of Ministries degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. (Pastor Coon’s doctoral thesis.)
In 1974 Pastor Coon was ordained to the gospel ministry. He has served as Senior Pastor in three Baptist churches in Michigan. Alto Baptist Church from 1973-85, Skeels Baptist Church and Skeels Northern Christian School from 1985-93 and currently, Northeastern Baptist Church starting in 1993.
Pastor Coon also serves on three parachurch organizations. Michigan Association of Regular Baptist Churches with headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Continental Baptist Missions with headquarters in Rockford, Michigan; and Closed Door Ministries with headquarters in Rockford, Michigan.
Always practical, Pastor Coon is committed to sound, expositional preaching and reaching lost people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. His verse of commitment is: “…that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel.” (Ephesians 6:19 NASB)
At Northeastern we know that a friendship can change your life. We all want to enjoy the love and acceptance of others. The more contact we have with one another the more opportunity we have to encourage one another to follow Christ. Join us on Facebook and get involved in our ABFs or Youth Ministry. We look forward to knowing you better and sharing life together.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1
