The purpose of IMPACT Ministry at Coastal Community Church is to train and equip ordinary people to go and do extraordinary things in the name of Jesus so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love in tangible ways.
Impact ministry personifies the saying “Love God, Love People”. We at coastal believe this was the greatest commandment, and we want to love all people. We believe in actively loving and caring for one another and, as a church, we seek to channel our time, money, personal resources, and energy into people.
Through IMPACT ministry, Coastal Community Church seeks to serve our local community as well as international needs through monetary, voluntary, and physical aid as well as facilitate reaching lost people. We want to meet spiritual and physical needs by training and equipping our people to become leaders in service to others here in Charleston, our nation, and around the world.
Where Can You Help?
Through building bridges in our local community and around the world, Coastal Community Church strategically leads and partners with ministries that care for the most vulnerable. Through equipping our members, we are able to show the love and compassion of Jesus to those in need. We believe that the key to transforming lives for Jesus is through the context of the relationships we build.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
We want our members to find the intersection of passion and purpose in their lives which God has specifically gifted them to serve here in our community and around the world.
For ALL who want to volunteer in our community! Bring a friend and come join us!
