"We have people that come in off the street who attend on Sunday morning," Coleman said, adding the ministry provides food and clothing to the area’s homeless.

The church membership also ministers to nursing home residents and performs gospel music for them. In addition, the church weekly ministers to Okaloosa County Jail inmates.

Coleman and Lula, his wife of 31 years, started the church in 2002 after moving to Crestview.

Praise, Power and Compassion is a "non-traditional, non-denominational ministry based in the infallible word of God," the ministry's website,, states.

"Churches have a very orthodox way of doing things," Coleman said. "Were just a little bit different."

"I believe the spirit of God should dictate how the service should flow," he said.

Those interested in learning more should attend a service one Sunday, Coleman said.
