Leadership

Meet the team.

Steve & Kristin Coad

Founding & Lead Pastor

Steve and Kristin were married in 2003 and have five beautiful children: Elise, Myla, Levi, Eden and Isaac. They met at Southeastern University, where Steve earned a Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Ministry and a Master’s degree in Ministerial Leadership.  Steve is ordained with the Assemblies of God and has been in full time ministry since 2001.
Kristin is a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and is a full time mom. Steve grew up on the mission field in the Dominican Republic, where he came to know Christ, became fluent in Spanish, and witnessed firsthand the difference Christ could make in a person’s life.  He has also lived in Costa Rica and traveled worldwide.  His parents were the Area Directors over the Caribbean for Assemblies of God World Missions.  Kristin, raised by Christian parents in Sarasota, FL, has an incredible heart for people and loves ministering to children.  She has been actively involved in ministry all of her life, ranging from her extensive involvement with the local church and numerous missions trips, including a five-month stint in Panama with Youth With a Mission (YWAM).  
Steve and Kristin served on staff at Suncoast Cathedral in St. Petersburg, FL for nearly five years as youth pastors.  In 2006, Steve accepted the invitation from Evangel Temple of Jacksonville, FL to become the lead pastor of a brand new satellite campus church in Middleburg, FL. During that time, the Middleburg campus underwent numerous expansion projects and a building program. Steve and Kristin have definitely seen God’s hand on their ministry, and are amazed by His guidance over the years. In September of 2011, with the help of an amazing team, Oasis Church was launched as a brand new church in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Steve and Kristin know that all they have been through has been in preparation for what God has ahead.  They are passionate about leadership development and helping people discover and reach their potential as they walk in relationship with Christ.
