Dr. Dan & Dr. Dianne Coflin
Pastors Dan and Dianne Coflin were married in 1973 and began serving the Lord in full time ministry in 1977. After 22 years of ministry as associate pastors they were instructed by the Lord to leave the church family they had served to step out into a new place God promised to show them. After 9 months of teaching and preaching in the Tampa Bay area they became the senior pastors of River of Life Church in Lutz, Florida in April of 2000. Both pastors have studied, graduated and taught in various colleges and seminaries and each hold doctorate degrees in pastoral ministry and theology. Pastors Dan and Dianne feel called to serve the body of Christ here at River of Life Church and abroad. Their greatest desire is to partner with the Holy Spirit to equip the church through powerful teaching of the word of God, flowing in the gifts of the Spirit, dynamic prophetic worship and seeing people touched by the power of God. In addition they have felt an international call to teach, serve and encourage missionaries and have preached in Switzerland, Turkey, Romania, Slovakia and other international regions.
Our Pastors love to have fun! They enjoy cruises, golfing, movies and trying new restaurants (Pastor Dianne does not enjoy cooking- even though she's actually quite a good cook). They love spending time with their family, kids, grandkids and grandogs!!
