He has reorganized the Class Leader System and the Sons of Allen as well.
The church also witnessed a renovated kitchen, new pews, updated sound system, a new roof, paving of the parking lot and fence enclosure, and purchase of mini-bus for transportation.
Community outreach has been a focus of Rev. Dr. Coaxum's pastoral leadership.
