who we are


Antique Black Sidebar 
East Coast Church is a chance – a chance to love God, love people and serve our world – and do those things with people just like you. We’re not perfect, and we don’t pretend to be. But we know you’re not perfect either. So bring who you are, as you are, and join us on the journey.
We are a group of Christ followers doing just that: following Christ. Whether that means a change of location {we’ve moved a few times} or a change of a heart, we’re on board. If you’re looking for a faith family to know who you are and grow with you, we hope you will join us! Find out what we believe here
We are currently meeting at Quest Elementary in Melbourne/Viera {8751 Trafford Drive} at 10:30am on Sunday mornings. We would love to meet you there!


our staff


meet the East Coast leadership team

Derrick Shirley
lead pastor
Derrick joined what is now East Coast Church back in 2009 as the worship pastor after helping start two other churches in Florida. A gifted musician and speaker, he truly has a heart for the community. Passionate about faith and family, his wife Marci and their 6 children keep him a busy guy, but a loved one. When he’s not busy at East Coast, you can find him at his children’s sport events. 
Josh Smith
worship & small groups pastor
Josh is excited to join the East Coast team. He has led worship here in Melbourne before and is glad to be home. Before moving back in 2014, he led worship in DeLand, FL for 4 years and for a 5000 member church in Atlanta, Georgia. A singer / songwriter, he enjoys spending time with his wife Lisa, and has a passion for leading and empowering worship leaders and bands. Follow him on his blog here.
Shannon Freeman
children’s coordinator
Shannon has a great heart for ministry. You’ll be glad to have your kids in her care during our Sunday morning worship times. Her love and laughter are sure to brighten your day and the lives of your kids under her wonderful care. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends. You can look for her smiling face in our welcome center before worship on Sunday mornings. 


ways to get involved



If you have a passion for worshiping God, a talent for music and a desire to share that with others, the East Coast Band is a great place to belong. We play modern worship music (guitars, drums, etc.) with an occasional hymn, and give you all the resources you need to feel prepared. Contact Joshua Smith for more information.




Since East Coast is a portable church (we set up every Sunday morning for worship, children, chairs, everything!), we really need help. This is a great place for anyone to be a part of what we do, and also a great way to become part of a team! We start set-up at 8:30am, and all are welcome to show up and get involved!



Besides helping to set up for our children’s ministry, KidStuff, you can help out teaching our kids the truth of God’s word. Children are the future, and a future we want to invest in here at East Coast. If you have a heart for the little ones (toddler thru 5th grade), please contact our Children’s Director Shannon Freeman.





media & tech

Do you have an ear for sound or a tech-savvy attitude? Serving on our media and tech team is the perfect place for you. We run Macs with ProPresenter, top-notch wireless HD streaming kits for video, and have tons of cool audio equipment with just one thing missing: you! Join our wonderful media and tech team to make sure our Sunday worship experience flows flawlessly!




greeting team

First impressions make a big difference. Have you ever walked in somewhere and felt unwelcome? We desire the exact opposite. At East Coast, all are welcome, just as they are. If you have a smiling face and a joy to see others experience the love of God in a real-life way, this is where you need to serve. From welcoming guests as they arrive to making sure everyone feels welcome, this is a great way to be a part of East Coast Church.




The people in our communities need to know what we know – that Jesus loves them. The easiest way to be a part of the mission of East Coast Church is to talk about Christ in our own world. Share your stories. Meet new people. Spread the good news the same way it’s worked for over 2,000 years: tell someone. A great place to start is to invite someone to our Sunday worship time.
