Grow BOx

what is the grow box?

Grow Box - Is a one year subscription based program that is designed to help you grow as a follower of Christ;

no matter where you are in your relationship with God. You can be a new believer or have walked with God your whole life.

You will receive a total of 4 custom boxes that have been put together by our leadership team. Each box has been

prayed over; praying that God will use this material to transform your life and walk with Christ.

Our hope is that you read through and listen to the material, and use the information given to apply to your daily lives....

To Become Fully Alive in Christ!

Each box will be filled with a combination of books, discs, and materials to help you in this next step of your relationship.

You can expect one box per quarter. Our mailing dates are:

       * January 1
* April 1
* July 1
* Oct 1
(We actually will mail each box a few days prior to the date as to hit your mailbox by the target date

and give you a full 90 days each to work through the material.)

You can sign up at anytime.

If you live in the area you can also go through the box along side a Coach.

The coach will go through the material with you and help, as needed, as you grow closer and closer to Jesus.

  • Hey! I’m Mandy! I am a Grow Box Coach for Coastal. I have a sincere passion for helping others to learn and grow in Christ. I love the opportunity to connect with people and walk alongside them in their faith journey. I am married to my awesome husband and best friend, Brian. We are parents to two lively boys, Bryson and Jaxon and our daughter Hannah who just completed her first year of college! I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Nursing. In my down time, I enjoy conversation over a good cup of coffee, reading, and long walks on the beach!

    Children: 2 boys ages 7 and 11 and one daughter who is 19

    Favorite Verse: Isaiah 43:13 NLT “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.”

    Hobbies: Reading, walks on the beach, spending time with family and friends!


  • I am Retired. Grew up in Morganton, NC. Formerly served as in-house attorney for a few UNC system campuses. My last position was Vice Chancellor and General Counsel at UNC Charlotte. I’m married for 46 years to my high school sweetheart, Karen. I have Undergrad and law degrees from UNC Chapel Hill. After going off to college in Chapel Hill, we lived in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area until 2004, when we moved to Charlotte. We moved to Holden Beach full time after retiring in 2016.

    Favorite Verse: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-9‬ ‭NIV

  • Moved here in 2014 from Kentucky after vacationing in the area for many years. Retired from teaching high school business/technology education for 20 years, and worked in business prior to that. Graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Education Graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a Masters Degree in Secondary Education with a Business/Technology Emphasis. I currently keep busy with substitute teaching in the local high schools, volunteering, participating in various interest groups in the community and spending time with friends and family. Happy to have been welcomed to the Coastal Church family.

    I was somewhat surprised and humbled to find myself in this coaching position. This is not something that I sought out nor did I see coming. Upon reflecting, I am convinced this is God's way of calling me back to Him as I was finding reasons to be distant. This is just one more example of how God seems to know what I need before I do. Sharing with others this journey of developing a deeper relationship with God is a blessing beyond words.

    Children: I have one daughter who is married and lives in Atlanta. Evidence of prayers answered is my two beautiful and healthy grand babies.

    Favorite Verse: Philippians 4:13 For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Psalms 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. 

    Hobbies: I enjoy cooking (especially baking), canning jams, gardening, reading, bible study, biking and hiking, being at the beach, being a mam-maw to my grand babies.


  • Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son and a Brother. I love Jesus and desire to serve HIM. I have found one of the best ways to love HIM back is to help HIS church, HIS people! Wanting very much to see and be a part of thousands growing in Christ. I am Humbled by Grace and I Love my Wife!

    Children: Yes - All grown Six - 4 boys and 2 girls

    Favorite Verse: Romans 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Hobbies: Fishing and being out on the water- Nascar (Jim-Kyle Bush/ Debra- Martin Truex Jr) Football (Jets)


  • I am far from perfect but know there is only way to get this life, with God by my side. Or inside if you want to get technical. Last one picked on the kick ball team, but a bruiser. I love my God and I love people deeply. God has blessed me with a child-like faith. I know he is real, and I know He loves me. He has changed my mind and my heart. I know if I obey my Father, He will bless my life and my family’s lives in so many ways. I want to help my direct community realize their potential in Christ.

    Finished a bachelors degree on a 10 yr program. My family is my greatest accomplishment. I married up.

    Children: 3

    Favorite Verse: 1 Peter 2:9

    Hobbies: I am not married to one hobby, I believe that it really doesn’t matter what you’re doing, but who your doing it with. I love to have fun and laugh with (at) others. Really just laughing at myself.


  • I am 36 y/o. My wife and I decided to move our family to ocean isle over 2 years ago because we needed a change. God opened doors and I became a paramedic for Brunswick county. We arrived at coastal church over a year ago and have not looked back since. As a grow box coach I hope that I can show how god will lead,guide and direct your life. So join me and let's grow together.

    Favorite Verse: He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. Colossians 2:14

  • Hi, I'm Bob or as some of my friends call me; Bush (due to my interesting last name!) I am a disciple of Jesus, who by His wonderful grace has been saved. Through the blessing of several wonderful godly men and mentors in my past, and through God's patience and persistence, I have learned some wonderful spiritual truths for daily living. I love opportunities to one-to-one disciple other men for Jesus. It is extremely exciting to be used by the Holy Spirit to help other men connect new and already know spiritual truth and connect those into a fabric of faith and spiritual maturity.

    I have a degree in Secondary ED Math and Computer Software and Hardware.

    Just a reminder of the reason I'm still here: 1) to continue to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus by the Triune-God 2) to glorify God 3) to love others 4) to teach (what has already been shown to me) and encourage others

    Children: Two; a daughter and a son ... both adults, a son-in-law and 2 grandsons.

    Favorite Verse: Proverbs 3: 5-6  Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
