A GRACE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Kelli Schleis grew up traveling all over the United States until her family settled in Coos Bay, Oregon. She would help her mom find a new church each time they moved. They have been active at Coast Life since 2011. Kelli has helped in many avenues and aspects of ministry. She currently helps with children's ministries, as well as running the audio/visual ministry. Her goal is to share the love of Jesus everywhere she goes, whether here or abroad. She is open and excited for any adventures God would send her on.
Justin & Tessah Denney have been enjoying Ministry together for the last seven years. Tessah has served as a Youth Pastor for the last decade. In 2011, she married Justin who has proven to be the perfect companion & partner in life. Justin and Tessah joined Coast Life Church in the summer of 2017. They refuse to accept minimal integrity, but strive for greatness. They value and appreciate those who innovate, but have the hearts of pioneers. Justin & Tessah honor and learn from the people of the past and the paths they've tread, but refuse to have their ceilings limit their own. Not only can they see how things are, but they dare to dream how they could be. They are dangerously passionate to see the truth of Gods kingdom on earth as it is in heaven become a reality.
Chris and Teia O'Neil have been pastoring in the region of Southern Oregon for over ten years. Their reality includes an ongoing partnership with the presence of God, while engaging others in His presence. Loving God, loving family, making friends, and helping people are their core values in which they live by every day.
They are both amazing pastors and worship leaders, as well as have an incredible gift of prophetic encouragement and discipleship. Chris is an impressive historian, as he studies and learns from the past great revivalists and moves of God, while ushering us into the current flow of the Spirit.
They have a beautiful son named Gavin, who is a wonderful blessing and miracle in their lives.
