Coastal Missions Society

Our Story

Our story is really God's story. God using ordinary people, ordinary people with faith in an extra-ordinary God, to reach out to people on the coast.

Coastal Messenger at Gold River

1930's-1979 Foundation

Coastal Missions grew out of Bible studies at Pachena, a Shantymen's Bible Camp.

1980-1993 Wooden Vessel Years

After incorporation in 1980, Coastal Missions used a former government vessel D. M. McKay, renamed Coastal Messenger, to visit the coast.

1994-1998 Vessel Construction

Coastal Missions built a steel vessel to replace the aging wooden one. The new mission vessel kept the name Coastal Messenger.

1999-now Steel Vessel Years

The Coastal Messenger faithfully serves the coast, continuing to visit people between Olympia, WA and Point Baker, AK.
