CSM Middle & High

About Coastal's middle & high school student ministries, rISE & RADIATE

Middle and High School can be a difficult stage of life. Coastal Student Ministries (CSM) leaders are committed to help your student connect to God and develop as an authentic follower of Jesus Christ through age-specific corporate worship and small groups. Coastal students have the opportunity to serve in various missions and to develop as leaders and minister to the younger students at Coastal.

Our goal is to provide an open atmosphere where students can know that they matter. Where students can be honest, open, heard, accepted, and equipped to live as a light for Christ, no matter what the cost! We do this by...

Safety is Our Top Priority

We understand it is a privilege to minister to your children, and because of this security is a top priority at Coastal. All potential volunteers go through an application process which includes a full background check.  All CSM meetings and events are fully staffed with adult volunteers or security to ensure that students are kept safe.
