The Heart Behind Home Groups

Home groups are a great way to connect with others in your church family for worship, prayer, fellowship and Bible study alongside the sermon series.
Our Home Groups meet weekly in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Santa Ynez and soon Buellton. 

Meet the Team!

Mark & Tiffany Philabosian 

Location: Santa Barbara (by SB Bowl) Wed 7PM.

Our group is dedicated to learning more about God by reading a weekly passage (e.g., the verses in Pastor Rino's upcoming sermon) and collectively discussing it as a group. We are open to any believers of Christ in any walk of life. We are an extension of SOUTHCOAST and its mission, value and core beliefs.

John Paul & Leah Sodusta

Location: La Cumbre Road (Mountain Side of State St.) Sundays 1-3 PM.

Our group is a community of young families discipling one another to obey Jesus Christ by changing our lives to be consistent with the Bible so that we are equipped to fulfill the Great Commission. (Children welcome)

Wayne & Ester Smith

Location: Santa Ynez.

Our group at its core is all about prayer. We discuss Sunday's message and help each other lean into Holy Spirit to work through His power in each persons life!

Graham & Julie Paterson

Location: Santa Barbara- San Roque. Wed 6:30PM.

We range from 3 to 70+  Our primary role is to support each other. We have not followed a fixed agenda. Studied topiics, read a book together, discussed Sundays sermon. We learned early on that hard core study was not the primary reason our group wanted to meet. Support of each other and sharing our faith together is most important.

Lupe & Eva  Lopez

Location: Santa Barbara San Roque.

More info soon.

Roberta Collier

Mondays 9:30AM in Santa Barbara or Fridays 9 AM in Goleta.

This women's home group will be based on using the Precept Bible study methodology, with additional time built in for prayer and mutual sharing and caring. In addition to Home Group sharing, this is an intensive Bible study group. The format will be interactive and discussion-oriented, and will not feature videos or lecture-style teaching. Members should have a high level of commitment to attend regularly, complete homework, and listen to and share their insights and questions with each other.

An ongoing Mens SOUTHCOAST Zoom Coffee Fellowship for Men seeking to connect with other believers to discuss a topical bible verse, scripture or subject in an open informal format. We have men from different churches and states along with SOUTHCOAST men. Come join us!

Jonathan & Carlene Evans

Location: Patterson Ave,  Goleta. Wednesday 6:30 PM.

We have fun and get know each other while reading and having an inductive study of Pastor Rino's scripture the week before it is preached.  Our group consists of mainly 40's to 60's but we want all ages, kids included.  New Christians and people that have been following Jesus for decades are welcome.  Home Groups can be great when they represent the full spectrum of the Church.

Marlene Padilla

Location: Santa Barbara, WestSide

More info soon.

Mike Solodon & Brian Freel

Location: SOUTHCOAST Church Barn. Mondays 7PM (except 4th Mondays 6PM).

This is a very raw group for men in need of help coming off drugs, the streets, and or rough lifestyles. It is open to all men of every background. There is no judgement, just love.

Armando and Brenda Vargas 

Location: SOUTHCOAST Family Room. 7pm on Wednesdays
El enfoque de nuestro grupo es el orar juntos en un solo espiritu y en un comun acuerdo orando por nuestra Iglesia, Familia, Pastores, Comunidad y necesidades personales. Estudiar las Escrituras juntos y con las notas de nuestro Pastor, permitir que la prescensia de el Espiritu Santo se mueva en nuestras vidas, cambiando nuestra manera de vivir de acuerdo a su voluntad, asi mismo compartir un tiempo de amistad como grupo, soportandonos unos a otros y animandonos a seguir adelante.
Este grupo es solo en espanol.
No child care is provided.
