Job Description:

Coastal Life Church originally began under the leadership of James Pendleton (Founding Pastor) and a team of 3 other couples with a desire to plant home churches in Martin & St. Lucie County, Florida in the Fall of 2008. During this time the church was named “Acts 2 Fellowship” and emphasized being a simple ministry that was reaching the unchurched and over-churched young adult and young family generations of the Treasure Coast and meeting the missing need for authentic community in the local church. As the church grew, it became apparent that everyone needed to meet together so a storefront in Stuart was leased in 2009. Within the next year, the church decided to become laser-focused on reaching the community for Christ. This is when the church was renamed “Coastal Life Church” and continued to grow rapidly. Through this growth the church met in several locations before settling into the current facility in Palm City, FL. During these first few years of Coastal Life Church we have seen many people accept Christ, be baptized, and are now serving in the church.


The premise of our philosophy of ministry is found in the “Great Commandment” and “Great Commission”. From these verses, we have identified the purposes of our church community. Evangelism - reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Fellowship - connecting people into meaning spiritual relationships. Discipleship - being a catalyst of personal spiritual growth. Service - serving people around us with our God-given gifts and talents. It is our vision to gather crowds of people together, connect them into a relationship with Christ and fellow believers, and then scatter throughout our city making an impact for the Kingdom of God.

Our mission as a church is captured in 3 key words: ENCOUNTER, EQUIP, ENGAGE
Help people experience a life-changing ENCOUNTER with Christ
EQUIP them through the Scriptures in group relationships
Together ENGAGE our neighbors, city, and world through acts of love


Our weekend worship experiences feature a “modern/contemporary” style that will engage the heart and mind in adoration of Christ. As a church that is reaching the unchurched, de-churched and over-churched we desire varied and creative worship expressions that are passionate, engaging, full of Scripture, prayer, and an awareness of God’s presence.
