Sharing Christ Through Community With Love

The Protestant Congregation at Ocean Reef is one of four congregations in the One Community of the Ocean Reef Chapel and Fellowship Center. Participants in our congregation come from a diverse background of churches and denominations. We are in the best sense interdenominational. Our convictions are shaped by our belief and trust in the one true God, revealed through Israel, and fully through God’s Son, Jesus of Nazareth. The Scriptures are God’s inspired account of this revelation. Our shared faith is best captured by what C.S. Lewis called Mere Christianity. Our practice is shaped by the expression, “in essentials, unity; in doubtful matters, liberty; in all things, charity.”

The Protestant Congregation is led by a nine-member board elected by the congregation. Each board member leads and participates in a committee that is responsible for oversight of an area of our mission and ministry. The congregation is served by an ordained Chaplain-In-Residence and team for music leadership.

The ministry of the Protestant Congregation is supported entirely through the gifts and offerings of the participants. The PCOR is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, entirely separate from The Chapel Foundation. An annual report is made to the congregation during the month of April.

Board of Directors

The Protestant Congregation is governed by a group of nine men and women who are elected by the congregation.
