Small Groups

Small Groups

“No man is an island” . . . that’s not just pretty prose. It’s hard-core reality. Isolation, especially for men, is dangerous. Real men come out of their caves and find community in Saddleback’s small groups.

Whether you want to connect in a home, at your workplace, on campus, or online, we have hundreds of groups to match every age and stage of life.

Retreats

Retreats

Sometimes you just need to get away and get with God. That’s why our Men’s retreats are the ideal place to unplug from life and connect with others. So whether it’s journeying together in the Sequoia National Forest or spending a day at our secret spot in San Juan Capistrano, we want you to be part of the experience.
