This is a family!

Say hello to some of the people who make this place feel more like home.

Matt Stokes

In 2003, Matt Stokes and his wife Laura left Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia to teach a Bible study in a small sandwich shop in downtown Ocean City. Today, that ministry is called Coastal Christian Ocean City. A graduate of Philadelphia Biblical University (Cairn University), Matt’s vision is to educate, equip and empower believers to reach the lost and make disciples. Pastor Matt places a strong emphasis on applying the Scriptures to everyday life.
