Christian Today report- Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback church extends its reach to Costa Mesa as it launches a new campus in the community of Newport Mesa.
According to the Orange County Register, the new Saddleback campus will be headed by Pastor Moses Camacho. Camacho has served in the ministry at the Ocean View High School in 2011, where the church had formerly set up weekly campus congregations.
The church, which is Saddleback’s ninth campus in Southern California, will open on Super Bowl Sunday.
Camacho expressed his excitement to the Register. “I am excited about being a church that will be able to provide phenomenal family programs to make them stronger,” he said. “Saddleback does an amazing job with being the premier place for families.”
Camacho also said that he has encountered people who said that they’ve been positively influenced by Saddleback’s weekly services and programs.
In addition, the pastor told the Register that having a beach city-oriented church like the Saddleback Church opens several opportunities for networking for the people around it. He also said that the church will not only focus on providing regular church services but also to provide support to help people maintain healthy relationships.
“[Saddleback] also focuses on helping people to be relationally healthy – in marriage, parenting, family and friendships,” he said, adding that the church will help people to be “physically healthy [by] using God’s design for physical health” and to be “emotionally healthy [and] understanding the design behind our heart,” as well as to be “financially healthy [and] learning how to live without financial stress.”
“Having a church like Saddleback nearby has been so helpful to those who are looking to get further ahead,” Camacho claimed.
Finally, Camacho promised a great vibe for the community of Newport Mesa from the newest Saddleback campus.
“The congregation is a family community,” he said. “When you come on Sunday you can expect to find children of all ages, junior high and high school students, young adults and young families who are raising children.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
