Our goal is to create environments that are relevant to life stages. Below are ways to get connected.


Small groups are a great way to get connected and be encouraged to grow at Gulf Coast Church. Our small groups meet on a semester basis.  Groups are encouraged to meet weekly as our goal is to provide you with a place where you can develop meaningful relationships, a great support system, and an environment that fosters spiritual growth.

We know how much you love your children, so we’ve created an environment for them to learn about Jesus and communicate with them in their language. Every Sunday during our worship services, our volunteers spend time teaching children from birth to 5th grade about Jesus in new and creative ways.


GC Students is an authentic and relevant ministry for 6th through 12th grade students. Our Home CREWs are environments for deepening of relationships between students, between leaders and students, and with Christ. Whether it’s our Home CREWs, Fourth Wednesday’s, outreach opportunities, retreats, or discipleship, everything we do helps students KNOW God as their personal savior, GROW in their walk with Him, and GO into their communities to live out their faith.


Gulf Coast Church thrives because of our amazing volunteers!  Let us help you discover your gifts, passions, and the best place for you to serve.  If you want to connect with others and serve the church, we have several teams you can get involved with.

  • First Impressions Team
  • Worship & Production Teams
  • Nursery, Preschool & GC Kids
  • Student Ministries Team
  • Small Group Leaders

Our Serve Team is all about one thing: serving God by serving His people.  Come join the team!  Email to get involved.
