About My Family

My name is Coale Jordan, and I am newly married to my amazing wife, Alecia. We live in New Orleans, La., and are both students at New Orleans Baptist Seminary, where we first met, pursuing our master's degrees. I am getting my degree in pastoral ministry, and she is getting hers in missiology. We are both originally from Alabama but have lived in New Orleans since August of 2017.

We love this city and its people deeply. We spend most of our time studying, doing homework, enjoying our city and its people (and it's food!), and spending time with our church family and friends.

About My Church Plant

I am currently serving at West Bank Baptist Church, which is a church plant in Marrero, La. Marrero is part of the greater New Orleans area. I am the youth pastor at our church and also serve in our Muslim outreach ministry. My ministry mostly looks like spending time with students in the greater New Orleans area.

As a church plant without a building, we currently meet in our pastor's home for Sunday morning services. Because of this our youth group Bible studies look a little different. Every Thursday night we join together with a group of students from around New Orleans at a local Starbucks. God has been so faithful in guiding us as we began the first youth ministry at West Bank Baptist Church, and He has developed and grown this ministry over the past year.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions living in North America have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood.
Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.


Pray for my wife and me as we work together in this ministry. Pray for West Baptist Church as we faithfully attempt to reach our community with the gospel. Pray the Lord brings leaders who can help within the church. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy. Pray for our youth students, the students in the community of Marrero and the surrounding schools. Pray for the Muslim community in Marrero, that they may come to know Jesus as Lord and know the love God offers.
