Pacific Coast Church has a baptist history celebrating over 50 years of ministry. Its multi-generational community reflects a balance of young families, singles and “builders”…a true reflection of the San Clemente community they are reaching with the gospel message. Sunday services are a balance of contemporary worship and engaging teaching for the adults, along with the fully graded children’s and student ministry.


 Current Status


PCC has an average attendance of 1,200 and given the busyness of young families schedules they likely minister to over 1,500 people who call PCC their home church. Approximately 1/3 of Sunday attendees are children and youth. Currently they see new visitors each Sunday and are poised for continued growth as they live out their vision for future ministry.


 Location / Demographic


Although San Clemente itself dates back to the early 1900’s, the master planned community of Talega is a newer community attracting young families and professionals.  PCC’s primary growth has been with young families.  PCC is committed to providing an excellent Children’s Ministry and providing tools and training for young parents to raise their children to follow the Lord.


CHILDREN’S ministry structure


The Children’s Ministry has been solid and consistent under the primary leadership of Laura Zanotti who has served faithfully for seven years. She is now seeking to stay at PCC as a congregant but will be retiring at the end of summer to be home with her two teenage daughters and husband, making a way for a new Children’s Ministry Director.




PCC is fertile ground for a spiritually developed, highly gifted, compassionate leader who loves children. It is a place where creativity, vision casting, and development are welcomed. The new Children’s Ministry Director must be a solid leader with excellent people skills and administrative organization. The director will be responsible for recruiting, training, and leading the CM ministry team in creating, developing, implementing, and maintaining an ongoing, vibrant ministry for children, birth through 5th grade.
