We Work Better Together

Fulfill Your Calling

At Saddleback Church, it’s more than a career, it’s a calling! We are looking for dedicated followers of Jesus who are passionate about making a difference. You’ve been called by God to use your gifts and talents for His purpose. Maybe He’s calling you, as a member of the Saddleback family, to work on your church staff as one of the ways to fulfill that purpose. We encourage you to pray for God’s direction before applying and throughout the hiring process.

It's not just a career, it's a calling!

Do I have to be a member of Saddleback Church to work here?

We love when Saddleback members express an interest in working at their church. If you are not a member, we will consider your application, providing you have been an active member of a local church that shares the vision and values of Saddleback. You will be expected to complete our membership requirements within 30 days of your start date, should you be hired.

If you are married, your spouse is also expected to complete the membership requirements.

What are the membership requirements?

Members of our church have completed CLASS 101, been baptized by immersion, and signed the Membership Agreement.

Human Resources does not coordinate volunteers, but we encourage you to connect with your campus Ministry Team or talk with someone on the patio on the weekend to get started.

How can I get other help with my job search?

Have you taken CLASS 301? This is a great step in figuring out how God has SHAPEd you for service and for your career. Our Career Coaching Ministry is a place where you can meet people who help each other in their career searches. This ministry is available to you, even if you are not a member of Saddleback Church!
