Ed Compean - Senior Pastor
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.
Chris Vanoli - Associate Pastor
What I do: I am the Associate Pastor in charge of the Worship Ministry and Marriage & Parenting. I spend a lot of time discipling and counseling here at Shoreline. I also have a side business, Bronco Boxes.

Robin Meaney - Office Administrator
What I do: I facilitate the women's ministry at Shoreline. I also co-lead the Ladies Book Club and also an Anchor Group with my husband Shawn. I drive our son to San Luis Obispo over and over and over again for school and karate. I work as the Office Administrator at Shoreline and try to keep things at home and work running smoothly.
How long I have been at Shoreline Calvary: Shawn and I found Shoreline when it was 35 people meeting in the Cayucos Vet's Hall back in 1996. We had just been married and God was calling me back to Him.
One thing most people don't know about me: I'm a Registered Nurse. Don't ask me for medical advice though. I remember enough to kill you.
