Cornelius "Neal" J. Ganzel has shepherded Coquina since 2001 shortly after he graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in Oviedo with a Master’s in Divinity. Since 1977 he has been married to Suzanne, a Proverbs 31 "Abigail" woman of God (cf. 1Sam. 25) who loves Jesus with all her heart! Pastor Neal’s great passion is to help those whom God has called into His Kingdom to both grow in the grace and knowledge of their Savior Jesus Christ and also serve Him with a humble heart and a gratitude that makes visible the invisible Kingdom of God. In this day of controversy and oppression of the Christian faith, Pastor Neal wants his brothers and sisters to be particularly filled with grace and a passion to lead their families, neighbors, and fellow citizens to Christ.

Sunday Worship & Christian Education at Coquina (Sunday School Starts at 9:30 A.M. and Worship at 10:50 A.M.)
Believing firmly in the Scriptural mandate to worship God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24; Psalms 145:18), we worship with a blend of reverent joyful love of God in music, singing, prayer, confession, thanksgiving, and the proclamation of God’s Word. Our "order of worship" leads the congregation to consider that it is gathered immediately before God, and each element of our worship is "in his presence," and that we have come there together for HIS Sovereign pleasure. We want to conclude each service having received the blessing of HIS comfort, HIS life-changing instruction, and HIS empowering encouragment to our service to HIM in all that we are and do in life.

Coquina Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America
The Presbyterian Church in America was founded in 1973 when through a laymen-led grass-roots effort it broke away from the PCUS when it could not reform the church’s slide into un-biblical teaching and practice. The forming of the PCA was to continue the Biblical standards and practice reflected in the Westminster Confession of Faith, and to continue the theology, worship, and evangelism of historic Calvinist and Presbyterian Christianity. The Westminster Confession of Faith’s influence in a Christian’s life is not superior to Holy Scripture, but is an instructive and systemized directory of what the Scripture teaches. You can read or even download the Westminster Confession at: Westminster Confession of Faith at the PCA Website You can also learn more about the History of the PCA at: PCA History
The PCA is one of the fastest growing denominations in the United States, and now numbers over 353,960 members worldwide in 1,831 churches and missions which contribute over $766 million to the work of worship, Christian Education, mercy ministries, as well as local and worldwide evangelism. In 2014, 9,425 people of varied race and socio-economic backgrounds joined the PCA on profession of their Faith in Jesus Christ. The PCA has 596 full-time missionaries serving in 86 countries all over the world, and 4,944 missionaries, mostly regular members of our churches, who served in two-week short-term missions-team ministries. The PCA is a "conservative" organization based upon our fervent belief that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God, and therefore sufficient for all life and godliness!

Coquina Presbyterian Church was formed in 1985
Coquina Presbyterian Church was founded in 1985 as a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. In 1988 the church built the two existing buildings—the Sanctuary/Offices and the Christian Education Building that also contains the congregation’s Little Blessings Preschool.
