Pastor & Head of Staff

Rev. Don Coleman - Pastor & Head of Staff

I am a native Canadian, who heard God's call to leave home and attend Roberts Wesleyan College outside Rochester, NY. It was there, in the midst of studying, running track and worshipping that I met and fell in love with Bridgette. We married and moved to Los Angeles, CA, where God's call lead me to serve in Youth Ministry at Bel Air Presbyterian Church. After four years, we moved to New Jersey to attend Princeton Theological Seminary. My first call was as an Associate Pastor for Adult Discipleship, Missions and Membership at Liberty Presbyterian Church in Delaware, OH. In February of 2014, I accepted the call to Pastor Canonsburg UP and began ministering in April 2014. 

We brought with us our 3 children - Brennan (2006), Aidan (2008) and Bria (2010). When not wrestling with them, I love to watch good movies and television shows with Bridgette, cook up some fun food in the kitchen and get outside for sports and adventure. I continue to be excited about what God is doing in my life and the opportunity I have to share it with the Church and our world. I am particularly passionate about people and helping them discover and grow their faith in Jesus, particularly through short-term mission trips, Bible studies and weekly worship.

Director of Pastoral Care

I began working at the church in 2005. My primary responsibility is to visit with church members and friends of our church. I enjoy getting out to see folks whether they are at home, in the hospital or in a nursing home. It is important to me that members who are unable to attend our church still feel connected and cared about. 

My husband, John, and I have two sons, Andrew and Ryan. We also have two dogs, Max and Toby.

I joined the staff in 2008 and have been blessed to serve this church and community as the Director of Communication. I'm married and have two children (and a dog). I also enjoy catching up with friends, playing games, and spending quality time with my kids.

Director of Family Ministry

I have been a member at Canonsburg UP Church since 1999.  I have a Bachelor's in Special Education from Penn State University and previously worked as a director of a Childcare Learning Center in McMurray for over 22 years. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Dave, and we have four great kids – Cody, Tanner, Logan, and Carly. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafting, playing games and hanging out with family. 


I am thankful that God has opened this door and thrilled to serve this church and its youth and families.  I am excited for new opportunities to serve and welcome people to grow in Jesus.
