Pastor Ed Compean
What I do: I’m the lead pastor at Shoreline. This means I seek the Good Shepherd to care for His people, preach His word, develop His leaders and keep His church on His mission.
How long have I been at Shoreline? I was honored to be called to Shoreline in August of 2016.
One thing most people don’t know about me: I’m not shy, but I am a total introvert.
A few of my favorite things: Discovering new places with my wife, Kelli. Seeing people transformed by the grace of Jesus. Going on a long trail run, getting a little lost and wondering if it’s going to end well. Often thinking the last wave I rode was the best of my life.
Pastor Chris Gaschen
What I do: I am an Associate Pastor here at Shoreline in charge of our youth. I have the pleasure of seeing Jesus transform the lives of our students through discipleship and leadership training. I also work for a parachurch organization called Fellowship of Christian Athletes that is devoted to sharing Christ on local high school campuses using the influence of coaches and athletes.
How long I have been at Shoreline Calvary: I started attending Shoreline Calvary as a college student in 2010 and came on staff in 2014.
One thing most people don’t know about me: I hate avocados and candy but love all things chocolate.
A few of my favorite things: I love playing board games and eating all different kinds of food with my wife (Tanna) and three daughters (Rainee, Charlotte, and Elle Louise). I love playing and coaching soccer and rock climbing.
What I do: I am an elder at Shoreline Calvary, helping out with a little bit of everything, including Children’s Ministry, teaching, and preaching. I have been a landscaper by trade since 2004. I have worked for a landscape company in SLO since 2016. I married my wife Michelle in 2004. We have 3 children, and sometimes more.
How long have I been at Shoreline: I was saved in 2007 and Shoreline has been my church family ever since.
One thing most people don’t know about me: My wife and I grew up in Morro Bay and Los Osos, respectively. We were friends in high school. 6 years after high school we ran into each other in downtown SLO. That’s when we started dating and the rest, as they say, is history.
A few of my favorite things: I love cooking, making toffee, trail running, and pruning trees.
Pastor Chris Vanoli

One thing most people don’t know about me: I’ve been run over by a car with no injuries.
