Rev. Eric Maggio M.Div.
Lead Pastor

Lead Pastor and Church Planter of Church at the Beach, Eric Maggio, has always had a passion for preaching the gospel, whenever and wherever possible, to reach people for Jesus.

Before pastoring Church at the Beach, Eric had planted several churches, including Church Without Walls in Balboa Park, Generation at the Beach in Oceanside, and Church at the Beach Mission Beach. 

Here at Church at the Beach, Pastor Eric is actively involved in church growth and outreach, bringing in young families from the South Bay community. Over the last ten years he has seen God move in a powerful way in this locally grown church, from sending out missionaries, to planting and supporting other church plants in the area.  He is excited to see the ways in which God will use the church to be the hands and feet of Christ to the Imperial Beach community and the nations.  



Eric Fischer
Missions Director

Eric, vocationally a teacher, has been active in the mission field whenever school is out and continues to organize increased efforts to reach the nations for Jesus.  He also serves as a teaching elder and preaches at Church at the Beach monthly.

Currently, we are reaching out to three main areas, in partnership with local pastors and leaders, in Rosarito, San Jose Cabo, Cuba, Israel and the Philippines.

Financial Secretary

Responsible for the administration of Church at the Beach, Liz works tirelessly to make sure our church is up and running.  Handling the finances for a church like ours you would think would be simple, but Church at the Beach is a hub for mission support all over the globe.  Money that comes into Church at the Beach goes directly to accounts supporting missionaries in places like Israel, the Philippines, India, Cuba and of course our neighbor to the south Mexico.
