During her four years at Liberty, Jessie served in Student Ministries at the 20,000-member Thomas Road Baptist Church. Jessie’s years of ministry experience have uniquely prepared her for directing our Shoreline Community Church Children and Student Ministries today.

Phil Jeffery, Music and Sound Director
Phil retired as a professional musician, but never retired from playing and teaching music for the Lord. For over 30 years he toured, recorded, produced and played professionally. From 1991 to 1996, Phil was the General Manager of Café Records based in Medford, Oregon until he entered full-time ministry as one of the founding pastors of Table Rock Fellowship in Medford in 1997. During this time, he was appointed Administrative Pastor while continuing his music worship ministry.
The Lord later moved Phil to the Coos Bay area where he again assumed the task of Administrative Pastor at a local area church and later as a Senior Pastor. Through it all, Phil never ceased worshiping God through music.
In the midst of Phil scheduling worship teams, teaching students, and a score of other tasks he gladly fulfills, you can find him loving God and His people. It is not unusual to see Phil with his arm around someone in prayer and fellowship with all sincerity of encouragement. You can also find Phil talking about his son Will, a U.S. Army soldier stationed in Miami, Florida, or going camping, hiking, fishing and the like with his twelve year old son Max.
Although Phil has been on staff since 2017, he has been involved in the music ministry here at Shoreline since 2012 and serves as a youth leader as well.
Amanda Nelson, Administrative Assistant
Amanda began attending Shoreline in 2016 and has been a staff member since 2017. She comes to Shoreline with a broad Christian background and vast knowledge in administration. Amanda’s experience and awesome personality enables her to connect with people on a ministerial level.
The Lord has also gifted Amanda with a wonderfully powerful singing voice. So when she is not in the church office, keeping things running smoothly, you can find her practicing with one of the worship teams. Away from the office, Amanda is with her family—husband, Jack, and two little girls, Matilda and Jillian. Shoreline is blessed to have her.
Daniel Bennett, Ministry Intern
Daniel has been a part of Shoreline’s Student Ministry for over six years. In that time he has grown and demonstrates a love for the Lord. Although he has worked tirelessly pursuing a career in the field of natural resources, Daniel felt God call him to ministry. This began long ago when he started as an AWANA leader in 2010, assisted and taught in children’s ministry beginning in 2014, has actively been a participant in both Frontline and Solid Ground student ministries, and has recently become the worship leader for the student ministry worship team Recon 12:2.
Daniel is a wonderful musician, rising youth leader, and overall pleasure to be around. He looks forward to finishing an associate’s degree at Southwestern Oregon Community College in one year before transferring to Bible College. Shoreline is pleased to have Daniel as an intern since 2017.
