About Pacific Coast Church


Pacific Coast Church is a vibrant blend of the “churched” and “un-churched,” celebrating over 50 years of ministry. Its multi-generational community reflects a balance of youth, young families, singles and “builders”…a true reflection of the San Clemente community they are reaching with the gospel message. Along with Sunday celebration services, PCC provides in-home Community Groups in order to build relationships and promote spiritual growth. Throughout south Orange County, these sermon-based Community Groups gather during the week for study and fellowship. Sunday services are a balance of contemporary worship and engaging teaching for the adults, along with the fully graded (and remarkable) children’s and student ministry. PCC’s location and friendly atmosphere are natural draws in the community. Its personality is positive and buoyant. PCC belongs to the Conservative Baptist Association but is a non-denominational church.


Today, PCC is clearly a healthy, upbeat church of around 1200-1500 people that has a long history of ministry in the beach town of San Clemente. Over the past 5 years, God has provided new vision and opportunities for ministry that have been both dynamic and fruitful. Pacific Coast Church has embraced an uncomplicated “simple church” strategy that seems to fit well into the San Clemente lifestyle. With only two entry points (i.e. Sunday services and Community Groups), Pacific Coast Church has seen 75% of their weekend attendance make the transition into the mid-week Community Group network. This has created a very united church that cares about one another in authentic Christian living. In 2010, Pacific Coast Church also launched an on-line community called The City. Similar to Facebook technology, this tool has provided additional opportunities for the church at large to connect together. The Pacific Coast Church campus is ideally located with high visibility and accessibility to the 5 Freeway. Their ocean view facility, along with 5 acres of vacant land next door, is debt free and able to accommodate their bright and growing future. Currently they see approximately 20 new visitors each Sunday and are poised for continued growth as they live out their vision for future ministry impact (see website for further information).


PCC is located in beautiful San Clemente, CA. Known for “the best climate in the world,” San Clemente is located along the coast half way between San Diego and Los Angeles, where its charming Spanish architecture prevails throughout this community of approximately 60,000 people. Although located in the very southern tip of a typically “driven” Orange County, San Clemente is a more “kick back” beach environment where people enjoy the best of the OC with a down-to-earth beach “vibe.” Although the city itself dates back to the early 1900’s, the master planned community of Talega is a newer community attracting young families and professionals, many of whom are able to work at their “home office” and enjoy the benefits of their beautiful environment. PCC is a true reflection of the overall demographics of San Clemente. It possesses variety yet has a consistent vision and passion to see people trust and follow the Lord.


PCC’s leadership structure is staff-led with elder oversight. Most of the pastors have been on staff for over 10 years. Our vision is driven by a love for “the lost” and desire to see everyone grow in a real and authentic relationship with the Lord. The cultural leadership style is marked by clear visionary direction and “macro” oversight. We trust leaders to lead with their God given gifts. We desire staff members who first and foremost has a deep love for God, a heart for people, and have a passion to connect the two. PCC also desires a transparent leader who knows who he is and who he isn’t; someone with a clear vision for God’s calling on his life. The new high school pastor will need to be a capable and contagious leader both on and off the platform. He must be self-motivated, humble and collaborative, able to inspire others around him toward “becoming.” Maintenance ministry is not enough.
