Veterans Ministry

Purpose Statement

The Veterans Ministry of Saddleback Church is a volunteer based Christian outreach that serves local veterans and their families.

The ministry provides the following group meetings and outreach:


Outreach/Care Packages: Visiting veterans and providing care packages for our hospitalized heroes at the VA Long Beach Medical Center. Donations are welcome and volunteers are appreciated. Contact Darren for more details (949) 230-2388

VA Disability Claims Assistance: Disability compensation is a monthly tax-free benefit paid by the VA to veterans for any injury, condition, or illness that started during or was aggravated by active duty in the military. Certified Veterans Service Officers are available to you to prepare claims confidentially and at no cost to you, and also offer services to veteran’s spouses, widows, and family members. Appointment hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 9am – 1PM at the Lake Forest campus. Contact Pat by calling (949) 235-5708

Group Meetings

Groups have weekly fellowship to discuss life experiences, veteran's issues and Bible based topics. Everything discussed in a group is confidential. Often times only another veteran or wife of a veteran can relate to and understand what someone else has to share. We provide one another with hope, encouragement and comradery through Jesus Christ.

Veterans Group for men: Wednesdays at 7pm, contact Raymond for more details (714) 932-5750

Veterans Group for women: Wednesdays at 7pm, contact Eldonna for more details (310) 591-9803
