About This Organization

Ocean View Church was established over 50 years ago to reach Myrtle Beach and the surrounding communities. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, Ocean View was well-established along the Grand Strand and saw significant growth in every way. An active and generous church body helped build a beautiful facility just a short walk from Myrtle Beach.

Ten years ago, Ocean View called Terry Scalzitti, the next Lead Pastor, leading this church into a thriving modern era. Under Terry’s leadership, Ocean View has grown in giving, attendance, staff, and outreach engagements. Since the Pandemic, Ocean View has continued to grow, reaching more families and integrating more partnerships with organizations locally and overseas.
