MEET OUR TEAM
Dan Turpin, Senior Pastor
I am the Senior Pastor of Westcoast Church and have led in ministry for over 40 years As a seasoned pastor and author of multiple books on topics from daily devotional to the book of Revelation, I am passionate about God's Word and helping his people understand how to live in relationship with Him. I am proud to serve on the Board of Director for Loving Hands Ministry, as it gives me an opportunity to pour into men who have overcome life-controlling issues just like I have. I love the Englewood community and the family that has been created by our congregation at West Coast Church...I look forward to meeting you! At Westcoast Church you are a guest today, a friend tomorrow and family forever! Learn more at www.DanTurp.com.
Nancy Turpin, Associate Pastor
As a minister for over 40 years, I have led in every capacity of ministry. I lead The Vive for young adults and am honored to serve and co-lead alongside my husband, Senior Pastor Dan Turpin. Reaching our community, showing them their value and purpose in Christ, is my heart's greatest desire. God led our family to Englewood and specifically, Westcoast Church, in 2010, after pastoring a church in Mulberry, Florida, for 15 years. We have fallen in love with our community and cannot wait to see all God has in store for your family at West Coast Church.
Katie Walston, Youth Pastor
Westcoast has been my home church since 2006. I graduated from Southeastern University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and minor in Youth Ministry. I joined the WCC staff in 2018 and get the indescribable honor to Pastor the middle and high students of ENCNTR Student Ministry. Being a Christian and going the church is the best fun I’ve ever had and my heart is to see students of all backgrounds find meaningful relationships with others while experiencing real life change through a genuine, growing relationship with Jesus. I look forward to meeting your family and students soon. Forewarning, it may get rowdy!
Rena Shelton, Children's Pastor
I am the Next Generations Pastor and have a passion for seeing children and their families reached for Christ. I gave my heart to God as a teenager and my life has never been the same! I have served at Westcoast Church since I was in high school, so now, to have an opportunity to impact and oversee Treehouse Kids Church and our other amazing children's programs, is the greatest gift! I love seeing families grow closer to Jesus and to each other. Art and computers are my specialties, so I love incorporating them to enhance the church experience for children. I love everything that has to do with art, pianos and disney movies! After growing up in a broken home, I was left with a burning desire to reach families and encourage children. Seeing God restore others like he restored me has been an amazing experience. I am honored to have the opportunity to minister at Westcoast Church and to be a part of the amazing things that happen here. I look forward to meeting you and your amazing family!
Worship & Assistant Pastor
I’m a pastor’s kid who was raised in church and the Lord called me into ministry while attending summer camp in 7th grade. I stepped into that calling full time in 2011 and worship and church ministry are my passion. I love having the opportunity to lead others into an encounter and experience with the presence of God through Worship. I married my wife and ministry partner, Abby, in 2016 at the summer camp in Kansas where we met and served together. In August of 2019 we moved from Kansas to Englewood. We are excited to be in Florida with our Daughter Finley and Son Liam and are honored to have joined such a wonderful team and family at Westcoast Church.
Angie Santiago, Communications Director
I graduated from Florida Southwestern in 2019. I am honored to be on staff at Westcoast church. God has pulled my heart to ministry and I know it is something that can only be done in Him and with lots of coffee! I have a heart for people and our community and love witnessing the miraculous work God is doing through the Westcoast Church Family. I look forward to meeting you as you come through our church office!
