WHY SERVE?

Many times we tend to serve because there is a need and we want to fill that need. However, we believe people serve best in the areas they gifted.  At Coastal, we believe you have both a PRIMARY and SECONDARY ministry. Your PRIMARY ministry should be in the area where you are GIFTED.  Your SECONDARY ministry includes serving in any other area of the body where you are NEEDED.

CAN I SERVE?

At Coastal, we believe in order to better understand our significance in God’s design, we need to see how the Creator has created and shaped us.  We must know He has created us for a purpose.  Ephesians 2:10 says,
“For we are God’s workmanship, 
created in Christ Jesus to do good works, 
which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
In other words, you are God’s workmanship, individually made for His collective purpose and we can’t do ministry alone!  

WHERE DO I SERVE?

Once we understand how we have been shaped,  we are responsible to serve in a manner, which not only honors God but also serves God.  We want to help you discover how God has created you and gifted you to serve.  Through iFIT we will help you unwrap your spiritual gifts, identify your passions, recognize your natural abilities and personality,  as well as understand how your life experiences can help others who are walking through similar life experiences.
