Pastor Donald Coleman has a resurrection message he likes to share with young people who are mired in tough circumstances. “I tell them I once was where they are, and if I can overcome it with God’s help, they can, too,” said Pastor Coleman. He is the lead pastor at East End Fellowship, a multiethnic Christian congregation of about 100 people whose mission is spiritual empowerment and racial reconciliation in Church Hill. He also has served on the Richmond School Board since 2008 and is in his second term as board chairman.
