Our Leadership

Pastor Brennan Coughlin

Brennan Coughlin is a church planter and preaching pastor at Fellowship CrossPoint church. After eleven years teaching history in New Jersey public schools, Brennan felt called to full-time ministry. He earned a Masters of Divinity from Biblical Seminary in 2011, and in 2014, he and his wife, Kathleen, moved with their four children to Trenton to start a church in the capital city. The church began with a team of twenty sent out from Fellowship Community Church in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, and they met weekly in the Coughlins’ home for Bible study. In the spring of 2015, worship services began in a living room, and eight months later, the church outgrew the space to worship at the Trenton War Memorial.
Brennan longs to honor the Lord with his life by bringing glory to God through the proclamation of the Gospel in his home, in Chesterfield, and in the surrounding communities. In his spare time, he enjoys running while listening to sermons and audiobooks. He recently received his Doctor of Ministry degree in expository preaching from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Brennan deeply loves his family. Brennan and Kathleen met while supervising seventh period study hall and have been married 11 joyful years. They are blessed with six beautiful children.
