Coastlands began with a group of people praying, talking, and listening to what Jesus is doing on the Central Coast. We held our first Sunday morning service on Sunday, January 8, 2012. The founding pastor, Cody Busick, grew Coastlands from an intimate group of passionate people meeting in a home to an intimate group of passionate people meeting in an elementary school auditorium.
In March of 2014, Cody and his family felt called to pastor a church in southern California. In July of 2014, Chris and Sarah Failla, who had recently moved back to California after serving as missionaries in China, were ordained as the new pastors. Throughout Coastlands' journey, we have remained committed to being a genuine, participatory, Kingdom-focused community of people.
