Meet the pastors
Dave & Cheryl Koop
Founding Senior Pastors Dave Koop and his wife Cheryl, met attending bible college. They spent their early years pursuing further education, careers and raising a young family. Even though they were active in their local church and community outreaches, full time ministry wasn’t considered until they experienced the infilling of the Holy Spirit, followed by several divine moments where God confirmed His calling. Following much prayer, Dave left a successful career in the oil industry, and eventually, in an act of obedience, pioneered a new church plant in the core of downtown Vancouver, Canada in 1994 with their young family.
This call as a couple has enabled them to share the duties as Senior Pastors in this thriving city church and it’s campuses as well as contributing on other non profit organization boards. David completed his Doctorate in Ministry from Bakke Graduate University in 2010. They are proud parents of 4 grown children, 3 in-laws and 5 beautiful grandchildren.
Believers who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of a local church deserve to have confidence in church leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.
The Coastal Church Leads Team is led by the Senior Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church.
