The Pastors are the primary teachers and shepherds of the church. The Pastors give considerable time to the study of the Word and communicating the Scriptures to the Coastal Christian family by precept and example. The Pastors spiritually feed the church body, equip the saints for ministry and watch over the spiritual and general interests of the congregation.
The Elders are the spiritual leaders and guardians of the church's vision, as well as the key leaders called to protect and govern the local church. The Elders study and seek God's Word and depend on the Holy Spirit in weighing and making wise decisions before God, and each other, on behalf of God's people.
