South Coast Fellowship
SCF is an nondenominational church that has a heart to see people receive Christ as their Lord and Savior. We want everyone to be a part of the Family of God and to be discipled in the ways of the Lord. We are not people who are “tossed around by every wind of doctrine, but are rooted and grounded in the Word of God.”
We want to resemble the trees in Psalm 92 that are “flourishing in the house of the Lord.” We are committed to see everyone released into the place of significance that the Lord has prepared for them to occupy. Just as God had a place prepared for each tribe of Israel more than 2000 years ago, He also has a place of influence for each of us today.
The Church Elders are responsible for the implementation of SCF’s vision, “to win souls and make disciples and goal, everyone a person of influence.” They hold the Pastors/teachers accountable for sound Biblical doctrine, as well as monitoring the church’s budget. We also have a mediation board for any disputes that might arise in the church.
We started as a home Bible study in 1978 and incorporated as World Reaching Faith in 1979. At that time, we had just a few adults with zeal and vision but no place to call our own. Pastor John Huffman and Pastor Larry Reichardt were co-pastors. From 1979 to 1992 the church continued to grow and move to different locations around the city until we moved into our present home at 4050 Market St., Ventura, California in 1994.
SCF Youth is designed to help middle school and high school students grow their faith, their character, and their relationships. It’s about creating an atmosphere where they can belong. We encourage the youth of South Coast Fellowship Church to be involved in everything we do from inviting, participating in an SCF Small Group and serving.
SCF ministers to children from birth to 5th grade during the weekend services with resources that help kids discover who Jesus is, and then shows them how to put their faith into practical action each and every day.
