Expedition Host


Aaron Jayne has a passion to help people discover their God-given purpose for life. Before becoming the senior pastor of Coastline Church, Aaron helped start the Dream Center in Los Angeles with the founder and senior pastor, Matthew Barnett. Through his experience he has learned the valuable skills and principles needed to build and lead local churches in creative and effective ways. Aaron has a deep love for the unchurched and people in need. 


Aaron has spoken in events, conferences, churches, and pastor’s and leader’s schools throughout Europe, Australia, Africa, South America, and North America. He has written articles for different newspapers and magazines and was a featured writer in Josh McDowell’s book Youth Ministry Handbook. He has been on the cover of the New York Times Sunday edition and has been a guest on many different television shows, including a regular as the pastor on the “Dr. Phil” Show. He was featured in a chapter of Matthew Barnett and George Barna’s book, The Cause Within You. 


Aaron and Amanda have had a dream from God to lead a church in the North County area of San Diego. In October of 2010 their dream came true as Aaron was confirmed the Pastor of Coastline Church. The church has grown from a handful of people to over 1,000 in a few short years through God’s guidance. They have two sons, Asher and Aaro, who are full of energy and life and they all reside in Carlsbad, CA.
