Jan Coates

Featured on Woman to Woman on August 17, 2008.

At five feet, two inches and shrinking, Jan Coates delivers a message like she's eight feet tall. A been-there-done-that kind of gal, Jan connects with audiences from all walks of life.

With more than 25 years proven platform experience, Jan's exceptional presentation skills make her encouraging messages the inspired choice for conferences, retreats, and seminars. Her powerful, passionate presentations-blended with Scripture, real-life solutions, street-smart insights, humor, contagious passion, and grace-truly bless participants.

Jan knows about hanging on to a bare thread of hope-in spite of all odds and worldly conditions. By God's grace, she overcame childhood abuse, dysfunctional family relations, divorce, the loss of her only biological child, depression, gang warfare, cancer, and much more. Now she energizes others with truth and freedom found only in Christ. A non-denominational Christian, Jan is living proof that God heals and transforms the improbable.
