Earlene Coleman ('64) has been active in the religious and civic life of McKeesport for more than three decades and is currently pastor of the city's historic Bethlehem Baptist Church.

When she was called to serve as pastor in April of 2003, she became the first woman to lead the congregation in its 120-year history. Under her pastorate, numerous innovative programs have been instituted and others have been re-invigorated. Presently, she is spearheading fund-raising efforts to establish a community center in the former R&J Furniture store, Downtown.
A graduate of the American Baptist College of Pittsburgh, Coleman was licensed and ordained under the leadership of the late Aubrey E. Swann. She has also studied child development, evangelism and ministry and has traveled and preached in Jamaica, the West Indies, Guyana, South America, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Her involvement in the community includes service on the board of the McKeesport YWCA and Womansplace; the city's Human Rights Commission; and McKeesport Women's Aglow, an organization which she headed. She is currently assistant secretary for the Baptist Ministers' Conference and serves on the Advisory Board of Penn State Greater Allegheny Campus.
Retired from McKeesport Area School District after 30 years' service, she is married to the Rev. Kenneth Coleman.

Rev. Earlene Coleman (at right), pastor of Bethlehem since 2003, will co-chair the Public Health Commission on Preventing Violence and Promoting Community Mental Health, along with Dr. Ron Voorhees, acting director of the Allegheny County Health Department.

"I am very excited about the formation of this commission," Coleman said. "I have stated many times to others in my community that we must sit down collectively, with every community represented.
"This is not a 'you' or an 'I' problem, it is an 'our' problem --- and 'we' must work together to solve it," she said. "McKeesport, just like many other communities, has been touched over and over again by violence and I look forward to working with others to make the changes that I believe can happen when we put our energies and our ideas together."
In addition to Voorhees, Coleman, Holtzman and Gainey, the commission includes elected officials, health professionals, community advocates, members of law enforcement and foundation representatives:
