The popular pastor of a Costa Mesa church has been relieved of his duties after admitting he had an extramarital affair with a female congregant, according to church officials. Keith Page, 36, a founder of the nondenominational Rock Harbor Church, told church leaders of the two-month affair 10 days ago, said Spencer Burke, chairman of the board of elders. "Pastors are real people just as all of us are, and Rock Harbor is a real church," Burke said.

Rock Harbor Church in Costa Mesa has added a third Sunday service to accommodate a growing congregation. Church officials said that adding a 6 p.m. service will help ease crowding; over the last few months the two morning services have drawn more than 1,000 participants, forcing some to stand. "It's the best problem we could have," said Keith Page, lead pastor of the nondenominational church, which is celebrating its two-year anniversary this October.

Keith Page sips coffee on an overcast Friday at Triangle Square, intently describing plans for Rock Harbor Church, the first offshoot of the popular Mariners South Coast Church campuses in Newport Beach and Irvine. Though Page is still scouting locations for an opening Oct. 5, he has ideas on how Rock Harbor will retain the basic principles of Mariners but forge its own, new style.

It has taken pastor Keith Page three years to reach this stage, to go from a tiny ministry to an enthusiastic weekly crowd of 1,800 Generation Xers rocking to a six-person band. At his Rock Harbor Church in Costa Mesa, spiked hair, pierced eyebrows and loud music are the norm. Page, 35, is leading a cutting-edge congregation with a compelling blend of humor, hipness and humility. With his shaved head and silver hoop earrings, Page looks less like a preacher than a punk groupie.

Strong attendance does not come as a surprise, since Rock Harbor is an offshoot of the popular Mariner's South Coast Church in Irvine and Newport Beach. Rock Harbor, a community-based church, is Mariner's first of many tentatively planned expansions. Rock Harbor opened Oct. 5 under Pastor Keith Page. The church will host a holiday food drive at its 9:30 a.m.

The fast-growing Rock Harbor Church will celebrate its one-year anniversary Oct. 4. Born out of Mariner's South Coast Church in Irvine, the so-called daughter church draws about 750 people to weekend services in the Costa Mesa Senior Center. It began with 300 people. Pastor Keith Page, associated with young adult programs at Mariner's, helped found the church with the idea that it would be representative of the diverse population that lives and works in Costa Mesa.
