Serve at Saddleback
Spend a few hours at Saddleback and you’ll hear a lot of talk about ministry. What exactly does that word mean? And why does everyone keep talking about it? In simple terms, it’s the concept of serving others. One of the foundations of the Christian faith is living to serve and care for others. And at Saddleback, we like to say that “every member is a minister.“ That means that you can be a part of serving others in the church and in the city.
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10
WORSHIP SERVICES AND EVENTS
The Worship Arts Ministry at Saddleback is a diverse community of artists committed to using the ministries of music and singing to create experiences where all people are inspired to worship God.
This Team supports all the behind-the-scenes aspects of each service from the song lyrics on the screen to the sermon to stage management. No technical skills? We can train you on everything you need to know!
This team warmly welcomes everyone to services at various places on campus. We answer questions and help people get connected. We go the extra mile for our guests, and we love to smile!

Hospitality fosters fellowship by supporting the weekend services and special events by providing a warm inviting atmosphere. Each weekend this team sets-up, prepares, and serves our guests food and coffee.

Set Up and Tear Down
This team handles the equipment and supplies before and after the weekend services. It’s a behind the scenes activity that bears much fruit as guests are allowed to feel at home in a place prepared just for them.

SYM is a ministry to help students/youth become exposed to, experience, and express Christ, His Kingdom, and the biblical purposes of His church. We currently offer a youth small group and a monthly All Play event where we have a fun time hanging out and playing games.
Small Groups are the heart of Saddleback Church. They are the source of our church’s health and growth, and our vision is to see every person who attends our church connected into a small group. What do we need for that? People who are willing to open their homes, offer hospitality and start a video
