The staff and ministry leaders at Shoreline Calvary aim to faithfully and lovingly serve our Lord, His church, and the community of the Central Coast. Take a look at some of their stories.


Senior Pastor

Ed Compean

Pastor Ed was living in Huntington Beach, CA when God called him from darkness into His marvelous light. He shared that good news with his then girlfriend Kelli, who also became a beleiver. They were then married in 1990 and a daughter and son soon followed. Pastor Ed worked as a photojournalist and Kelli as a registered nurse in Ventura, CA while growing with the Lord at Calvary Chapel of Ventura. It was in this time that Jesus called their family to the mission field. With joy, they served for two years at the Calvary Training Center in Mexico and then another 10 years church planting in the urban slums of Nairobi. When Pastor Jack Arnold felt the Lord calling them to North Bend, Washington in early 2016, the Lord called Pastor Ed to be the lead pastor at Shoreline Calvary. He and Kelli enjoy serving the Lord together, running and trying new foods.

Assistant Pastor

Chris Vanoli

Pastor Chris grew up on a cattle ranch in Soledad, CA. In high school, he started leading worship at Calvary Chapel Salinas alongside his mother and continued leading in college at Cal Poly CRU, where he ended up meeting his wife, Michelle. Pastor Chris was called to serve on staff at Calvary Chapel Oxnard in 2007 as their worship leader, was ordained, and served there for 8 great years. In 2014, the Lord called Chris and his family back to the central coast - and to come on staff as the Assistant Pastor at Shoreline. Pastor Chris and his wife, Michelle, were married in 2005 and have 2 children that bring them laughter and joy. The family enjoys being outdoors, working in their yard, and fellowshipping with friends. If you would like to enjoy Pastor Chris' music, his CDs are available for purchase here.

Staff and Ministry Leaders

Office Administrator

Robin Meaney

Robin and her husband, Shawn, have been at Shoreline since 1996. Here they found people who love Jesus and genuinely want to be like Him. She started out duplicating and sending cassette tapes of the sermons all over the world. By spending time in the office, God showed Robin that there was a need for a pastor’s assistant, so she offered to help and the rest is history.
