The Vista campus is the hub of our multi-site church and it features multiple simultaneous adult worship venues and full census children and student ministries. You can choose the style of worship that you like and still enjoy the same great teaching in every venue. On weekdays you will find classes, workshops, student events, small groups, recovery programs and more meeting on campus.  North Coast Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church.


The Ministry – High School / Eleventwelve  (11/12)
Eleventwelve is a unique High School ministry for Juniors and Seniors at our Vista campus.  Due to size and complexity we separated grades 9/10 and 11/12 about 12 years ago and each program has completely different rooms, staff, events, camps, budgets, etc.  The 11/12 ministry attracts between 300-350 students a week and runs both weekend and midweek services based around large and small group programs.  We are not an attractional ministry interested in big events, concerts, or game nights, but rather a young adult ministry committed to creating disciples who’s faith will not be rocked by university professors or cultural influences.  We believe that community and real truth are fundamental to a faith in Christ and eleventwelve is designed to secure a strong understanding and practice of both. We have an incredible team of staff, small group leaders, and volunteers who provide a safe place to belong and deal with the real things that happen in High School and life.

  • Small groups are the core of the ministry and essential to the discipleship model of our church.
  • Midweek programs are in-home small groups that are focused on weekend sermons.
  • Weekend program and teaching are geared for young adults and could be desribed as “college level.”
