Senior Pastor - TJ McCall: TJ came to Seaside First Baptist Church in July of 2009. He grew up down the road in Marina and is very excited to have his family serving in a church so close to where he was raised.

TJ has earned degrees from The Master's College in Santa Clarita, Genesee Valley Baptist Institute & Seminary, and Andersonville Theological Seminary. He continues to study and pursue academic training. After serving in various pastoral ministries and teaching Jr High Bible at Sonrise Christian School, the Lord brought TJ and his family home to Seaside First Baptist Church.
