Our Mission & Vision

The mission of the Coal Run Church of Christ is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples throughout all the nations by means of supporting many missionaries, to minister locally, to edify believers, and to do all that is sovereignly possible and biblically permissible to magnify the name of Jesus.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.  


Jerry Bliffen, Minister

Jerry and Sheila Bliffen graduated from Kentucky Christian College in 1976 and began a 14 year ministry at the Vansant Church of Christ in Vansant, VA. In July of 1990 the Bliffens moved to Coal Run after Sheila’s father E.W. Damron retired. When asked about his ministry at Coal Run Jerry had this to say “We have been blessed with many victories and new ministry opportunities through the years.” Jerry and Sheila feel very blessed to serve the Lord in such a loving congregation.
