About Coastal School Ministries (CSM)

Our Youth.

Coastal School Ministries is a Released-Time Bible  Education Class for teen students in our area.

The Bible!

A qualified teacher with a firm command of the Bible provides instruction using the Bible as the textbook. While students are taught the Bible academically, more importantly, they are taught how to apply the Bible to their daily lives (devotionally).


Get involved with us when God moves you to assist.

We are currently serving Horry County & need your support.

We are currently serving Socastee High School, Socastee Middle School, Forestbrook Middle School, St. James High School, St. James Middle School, Myrtle Beach High School, Myrtle Beach Middle School, Aynor High School, and Aynor Middle School.

Hope + Strength + Peace

Our children need HOPE & GUIDANCE.

The Bible offers a worldview grounded in HOPE – life has meaning and purpose beyond accumulation of wealth and/or cultivation of status.

More Reasons

Youth receive a strong foundation for moraland ethical character.


Biblical foundation leads students to be a positive part of their community – improved relationship with family and friends, improved respect for authority and their peers and reduction in risk-taking behavior.


Partnership with community churches helps connect students who often bring their families as well.


“Students in Released Time programs perform better than their classmates as a whole in almost every category.” (Monique W. Morris, Garry Krisberg, Sharan Shanoa, 2003. Summary of Findings: Released Time Bible Education. Columbia, SC; Oakland, SC; School Ministries; National Council on Crime and Delinquency.)

CSM helps prepare students for real life.

You can help too!
