There are many people who make up Coastal’s unique expression of the body of Christ. Below is a list of some of the people who provide leadership and oversight for the ecclesiastical functions of Coastal Community and email addresses with which to contact them.
Within our current Leadership Structure, the Local Board of Administration (LBA) serves as spiritual overseers of Coastal. They are charged with prayerfully following the guidance of Jesus in matters of Vision, Values, Vocation, and overall oversight of the church community. If you have an immediate pastoral need, please feel free to contact any LBA member:
The Echo Teen Ministry is focused on reverberating the love of Christ to 6-12 grade students by praying for them and planning formational teachings and activities based on the Vision, Values, Vocation of Coastal.
