Stephen Sharp

Pastoral Intern |

When he's not working or helping with the youth ministry you can bet wherever you find Stephen - he has a coffee cup in hand. He has been at Coastal since its launch with the exception of a few years away for his education.


Bill Bass

Family Connection Ministry |

Bill and wife, Linda, are long time residents of the Treasure Coast of Florida. Bill is retired from a career as manager of a citrus grower business and now enjoys fishing. Don't go fishing with him unless you like fishing with someone who catches all the fish while you watch. Bill is one of the nicest red necks we've ever met. If you have anything that needs fixed, hand him a roll of duct tape and he'll have it fixed in minutes! He often reminds people that NASA uses duct tape to make quick repairs in space.

David obtained his bachelor’s degree from Warner Southern College and graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Master of Science in Criminal Justice.

He leads the Coastal men’s bible study life group among other duties he serves in the church.

Douglas attended Nashville Auto Diesel College and earned a degree in auto-diesel repair and technology.

Lucille Porter

Family Connection Ministry

Lucille and husband, Hervin, are native to Jamaica, are still seeking forgiveness for living in New Jersey for many years and now call Sebastian, Florida home! They have 3 grown children and one grandchild. Herv and Lucille are veteran foster and adoptive parents. You might want to invite yourself over for dinner. They'll probably cook some delicious Jamaican Jerk chicken! Lucille is retired, but keeping Herv out of trouble is certainly a full time job.
