Coast Hills’ story began in 1985 with Denny and Leesa Bellesi and a small group of passionate people wanting to reach their south Orange County neighbors with Christ's love. Later that year, Coast Hills Community Church officially began. For eight years a faithful group met at Dana Hills High School in Dana Point.

Many lives were changed as people moved towards becoming fully devoted followers of Christ. In 1993, a brand new church building was completed in Aliso Viejo and we moved into our current home where, for more than twenty years, we have continued to see transformation as a church in passionate pursuit of Christ through a growing relationship with God and people.
