Mike & Carole Coomber

Team Leaders

Mike and Carole Coomber established and have led the New Forest House of Prayer since 2005. They have a passion to see God establish a place of 24/7 encounter with Him through prayer and worship which is enjoyable. Their heart is to see God transform lives and establish His kingdom rule in the New Forest and Wessex region. They launched Living Word Church New Forest in April 2016.

Mike is a worship leader, songwriter and graphic designer, with a desire to train up musicians and singers to use their gifts prophetically. His heart is to see the end-time church fully functioning in the power of the Spirit, equipped, prepared and ready for the return of Jesus.

Carole is a retired headteacher, with many years of experience in seeing young people come to faith in God and growing in discipleship. Her life vision is to be a lover of God who empowers others to become lovers of God.
