On March 16th, 2010 Reverend Keren Lord Coughlin, Founder and Director of New Beginning Ministry stepped through the door to be with her Savior for eternity.
Keren was 78 years old. She was born in Stamford, Connecticut and attended Stamford High School. Keren was licensed and ordained as a Minister of the Gospel by Pinecrest Ministerial Fellowship of Salisbury Center, New York and IAM Ministers' Fellowship of Berne, New York. Keren was a gifted teacher and lecturer, artist, and singer. Wife, mother, sister, friend, Keren would say "In life what appears to be the end, is really the beginning." Keren was a beacon of hope and a vessel for healing to thousands of God's children. She became a lady of passion and purpose; she used her own personal healing to help so many people. She started New Beginning Ministry to help others experience their "new beginnings." She has her New Beginning once again. Keren passed quickly and was pain free in the presence of her three children. (Matthew 17:20 I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move.) Keren moved mountains in her lifetime helping to save thousands of lives.
Keren was married to her husband Warren J. Coughlin for the past sixty years. She has three children Deborah Coughlin, Warren Coughlin Jr. and Reverend Kevin T. Coughlin. Keren has eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She is also survived by her two brothers, Charles and William Lord, and her sister in the Lord Luellen Fields. Keren will be missed; she was loved; and she will remain forever in our hearts! God bless all of you!
