Coastal Community Church is a 26 year old non-denominational church in beautiful Charleston, SC. For many years the church was 100-125 people. However, in the last 8 years the church has grown and now averages just under 500 people a Sunday.  Due to our growth and limited venue we built and moved into a new multi-purpose Worship Center that will seat approx. 500.  Excellence in worship has been a key ingredient in the growth of Coastal, so we are striving to find someone who can continue to take the church to the next level. 
Coastal has wide demographic of people that attend; however the main demographic of the church is young adults and families. We have an enormous focus on Evangelism and doing everything possible to reach the unchurched. Don't apply unless you love reaching the unchurched.
