Phillip was the favored grandson of the late Pastor Estella Farrow, who was known as one of the most powerful and anointed women pastors in the New York area. At an early age, GOD (Yahweh) allowed this Prophet to be exposed to the happenings that were in the Brownsville area. He became the leader of the Baby
lords gang of Brooklyn, N.Y. While fighting, robbing and ripping people off, GOD was preparing him for his ministry. At the age of ten years old, Apostle Coleman's ministry began to come forth. He went down in history as one of the youngest Bishops, with three churches, at the age of seventeen. He was also the founder of the Christian National Assembly (C.N.A.) which branched out into five states and a foreign country having over twenty churches.
