Meet the pastor


Marc Hughes

& His wife/Ministry Partner Rachel


Hey there! I'm Marc Hughes the Highschool Pastor at Pacific Coast Church.


I have been involved in student ministries since 2015 where I started my youth ministry journey as a  volunteer in the PCC middleschool ministry. As I served in this ministry i felt God calling me deeper into youth ministry and I began interning shortly after. After graduating with a business degree from Concordia University Irvine, I decided to reroute and dive fully into ministry. I was hired on as the middleschool pastor in 2019 and I absolutely love having the opportunity to teach and guide the next generation. In the fall of 2021, I stepped into the role of Highschool pastor and it has been an amazing journey, I can't wait to see what else God has in store.


My hearts ambition is to raise up students who know and love Jesus. I am constantly striving to learn how to do this in the best way possible, and I know that the best way to teach a love for God is to model it in my own life.  In 2022 I graduated from Talbot University with a M.A. in Pastoral Care and Counseling.

I am blessed to be working at such an amazing church.  My family has been attending Pacific Coast Church ever since I was born, it's a truly special thing to get to serve on staff at the church I call home. My hope and prayer is that this ministry raises up future leaders who go out and spread the love of Jesus wherever they are called.
