Coastal Community Church has a thriving, vibrant Student Ministry (6th-12th Grade)!  The Student Ministry at Coastal is appropriately called “WAVES.”  The connection is obvious with the name of our church being Coastal.  However, the meaning of WAVES is deeper than that.  Ever been to a sporting event, a concert, or an arena with huge crowd of people and someone starts the WAVE?  Where does that movement typically start?  As the saying goes, “The WAVE starts in the Student section!”  We believe that the WAVE of change starts with this generation!  Students are not the church of tomorrow.  They are the church of today!

Isaiah 51:15, “For I am the LORD your God, who churns up the sea so that its WAVES roar — the LORD Almighty is his name.”

WAVES Schedule

Summer Camp, June 19th-23rd in Myrtle Beach, SC. Cost: $250. (Includes housing, meals, & an amazing experience) We will depart from Coastal on Monday, June 19 @ 10am. Returning to Coastal on Friday, June 23 @ 3pm.
