Freddy De Coster is the founder of World of Grace, an association created in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, in 2014. The vocation, values, and objectives of this ministry can be found by clicking here.
Pastor Freddy (as he is known) is also a member of the apostolic team of pastor Paul Goulet of ICLV (International Church of Las Vegas, Assemblies of God USA, www.iclv.com), under the auspices of the INCW (International Network of Commissioned Workers, www.incwonline.com) and ministers in direct collaboration with the evangelist Carlos Annacondia (Mensaje de Salvación, Union of the Assemblies of God of Argentina, www.carlosannacondia.org).
Freddy was born on July 5th, 1973, at Malo-Les-Bains, near Dunkirk, in the north of France. He gave his life to the Lord in 1991. After his conversion, he began pastoral studies at the Biblical Institute of Dauphiné (1992-1994) under the mentorship of the apostle Pierre Truschel, who was, until his passing in 2003, his spiritual covering, as was the prophet Ismaël Sadok (deceased in 2007). Following a difficult period in his personal faith in 1995, Freddy became the father of a lovely young girl, today adult; he shares this testimony in his book Plus jamais sans l’église [“Never again without church”], Manna Diffusion, 2006.
In 1996, having been restored by the apostle Pierre Truschel, Freddy began preaching throughout nations, for example in the Martyrs stadium in the Congo, where God began revealing the gifts He had entrusted him with.
In 1998, Freddy began a groundbreaking project at Honfleur. The following year, he married Maria, an Argentine by origin, and their spiritual authorities (the apostle Pierre Truschel, the prophet Ismaël Sadok, and the pastor Pedro Ibarra) consecrated them to pastoral ministry.
Soon after, the church was welcomed into the Federation of Evangelical Baptist Churches of France; pastor Freddy completed his biblical training and received a degree in counseling (2000-2003). Noting pastor Freddy’s acquired skills and the results of his work, the apostle Clément Guerekozoungbo and the prophet Ismaël Sadok consecrated him to the apostolic ministry in 2004. At Honfleur, he exercised his ministry passionately for thirteen years, bringing many conversions and dynamic growth to this rural area of Normandy.
During this time of rich experience in the local church, pastor Freddy also preached in more than 40 countries on five continents, in stadiums, conferences, many churches, pastoral conferences, and biblical institutes (where he enjoys teaching on fasting and prayer, pneumatology and ecclesiology), as well as at the Biblical Institute of Normandy, which he founded at Honfleur (1999-2007). Many servants of God were trained there and exercise very effective ministries to this day.
In love with books, pastor Freddy is himself the author of two: one on grace (Plus jamais sans l’Eglise [“Never again without church”], Manna Diffusion, 2006) and the other on authority within the church (A votre avis? [“In your opinion?”], Manna Diffusion, 2007), as well as a manual on evangelization via streaming (ICLV, 2013).
Interpreter and translator, he has translated works of many authors such as Dr. Billy Graham, evg. Carlos Annacondia, pr. Paul Goulet, Dr. Claudio Freidzon, etc. Pastor Freddy is also one of the founders of the publisher Manna Diffusion: www.mannadiffusion.fr.
Experienced in media and communication, pastor Freddy has been invited to many TV programs internationally (M6, France 2, TF1, Arte, France 3, Direct 8, RTNC, etc.), including the France 3 news broadcast, where he was able to proclaim the gospel. One estimation suggests that his media appearances have been viewed by at least 50 million people across the world.
His CDs: Eternité 1, Eternité 2 and Louange Latino (nearly 50,000 copies of Eternité 1 have been produced since 2001) have become powerful evangelization tools and been associated with many testimonies of divine healing and conversion.
During pastor Freddy’s frequent travels, the Lord opened many doors and enabled him to personally pray for government leaders and political figures, including Ministers and two Presidents of nations.
For ten years, with his teams, pastor Freddy founded and developed the famous Pentecost conferences (1999-2010) in France, which allowed him to develop solid managerial experience directing major events and evangelization campaigns. In stadiums such as the Palais des Congrès at Lisieux, the Zenith at Rouin, the Palais Omnisports at Paris Bercy, the lives of thousands of people were transformed. Renowned guests such as the evangelists Luis Palau and Carlos Annacondia; the pastors Claudio and Betty Freidzon, Paul and Denise Goulet, Sergio Scataglini, Pedro Ibarra; the preachers Yolande Assélé or Suzette Hattingh; the singer and evangelist Chris Duran; the musical group Delirious?, and many others, participated in these events.
The most visible graces at work in pastor Freddy’s ministry are dynamic preaching founded on the Word of God, worship and intimacy with God, who manifests through healing, deliverance, and words of knowledge which profoundly impact non-believers by their precision and bring them to the path of faith.
