Your children face ethical issues everyday.

The BIBLE helps prepare them mentally, emotionally, & spiritually.

About Coastal School Ministries (CSM)

Your Children!

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

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).


We are currently enrolling students for this year! Let’s get your child signed up!

Horry County Schools

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

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.)
