6th-12th Grade

Coast Students is designed for teens in middle and high school. Students from the Mississippi Gulf Coast come together weekly to connect and build relationships that will help strengthen their walk with Christ. We focus on all of the issues that relate to teenagers and talk about how to overcome the challenges of everyday life using the whole Bible as our guide.

Take your next step with
Jesus at Coast Students

Wednesdays from 6:30pm-7:30pm at Coast Life Church

Our goal is to encourage teens who have become Christ followers to move forward in their faith and discover God's great adventure for their lives. We equally exist to help the many who have not yet done so, to start and develop a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Students between 6th-12th grade are welcome to come on Wednesday nights for a high-energy, God-filled experience. Doors open and pizza arrives at 6:00pm!

What We Value

Relevant Teaching

We teach biblical and foundational truths for today's most relevant topics.  We equip our students with the necessary tools to be the young man or woman God is calling them to be.


Coast Students is a great place for students to play games and hang out with friends. There's always something selfie-worthy or ready to add to an Instagram story!

Small Group Relationships

 Towards the end of every service, students break out into small groups.  Life can be difficult, particularly as a teenager.  Having friends and adult leaders is critical to understanding who we are in Christ.  Our small groups provide space for students and leaders to talk and grow together.

Partnering with Parents

At Coast Students, we value parents!  We understand that parents play a giant role in their teenager's development, and we want to be a resource to you. Click here if you have any questions or would like to connect with our Student Pastor, Phil Martinez.

Get Connected. Go Deeper.
