Mariners Church Mission Life

God is writing a new chapter in the Mariners story and you are invited to be part of it.

Join us as we prepare for our FIRST WORSHIP SERVICE PREVIEW on Oct 21, looking ahead to our grand opening in January 2019.



A note from Erin Kerr

I truly believe that the church is the hope of the world. My life has been forever changed by the love of Jesus and His church family. Growing up, it was the church family that helped me understand that hope had a name: Jesus.

My wife, Joy, and I are humbled and excited to launch a new Mariners Church this fall in or around Mission Viejo.

We want people, near and far from God, to know His love and take their next step with Him and His church family, so that their lives and our community would be transformed, one life at a time.

Commonly asked

Who will lead the church?

Erin Kerr, who is currently part of the inaugural Mariners Church South County lead pastor training program, will lead the next Mariners Church in or around Mission Viejo. Erin and his wife Joy have extensive experience in various ministries in outreach, discipleship, launching a satellite church campus, and church planting, and have been mentored by some of the most generous and gifted church leaders in Orange County. 

When and where will the church meet?

Our launch team is growing, inviting others and serving in the community to prepare the church for grand opening launch in January 2019.  Monthly Worship nights and previews will be held at the Norman Murray Community Center in Mission Viejo starting on October 21, November 25 and December 23 with Grand Opening January 27, 2019. In addition, real estate professionals are currently undergoing careful research areas north of Crown Valley Parkway and south of El Toro Road for both near-term and long-term locations.

How can I help?

A church isn’t the building, it’s the people. Our prayer is that 250 people make a 6-12 month commitment to being part of the next season Mariners Church in this area by praying, serving, attending & giving.
