Meet The Team
Marsh has been at Coastline Church since its beginning. Marsh has been involved with the Mexico ministry since 1997 when a small team first traveled down to a special needs children’s home in Maneadero. From that original visit to today, Marsh’s passion for the children and families in Mexico has grown into a near full time endeavor.
Marsh and his wife Peggy have two children, Chas and Courtney. Marsh spent his professional career in healthcare - the first 16 years in hospital and the last 25 in orthopedic medical devices.
Dave has been an active member at Coastline Church from its inception in 1994 serving in various leadership roles and as an Elder. Currently, Dave is the President of the Coastline Dream Center that oversees all the Coastline Church outreach ministries in the US and Mexico.
Dave and his wife Susan have three children named Bryan, Lindsay, and Kevin, and they have resided in Carlsbad for 37 years. His career was in the healthcare field, leading and directing sales and marketing organizations, and calling on laboratories and hospitals in the western US.
Clark has lived in the Carlsbad/Encinitas area for over 30 years and has been involved with Coastline Church and Ninos De Fe for over 10 years.
His wife Aura and daughter Isabella are also integral parts of our Mexico ministry. His career in the financial services industry started in 1989 and continues today.
Patrick and his family have been blessed to be a part of the Coastline family since 2011. He began serving with the Casa del Mar Board in 2018. Patrick has been in the construction and senior housing industries for his entire career.
He seeks ways to find connection with others through his work and in his relationships, always looking for ways he can be attentive to the needs of others.
