Interning with Saddleback has been amazing! I did not expect to have this many opportunities to learn and grow in such a tangible way. It is so special to be taught, stretched, and pushed by an incredible team. Mega thankful for my fam at Saddleback.

Interning at Saddleback has been nothing but pure JOY- God has revealed more and more the desires He has put on my heart for His Kingdom. I have never seen the power of prayer so evident and learning what it looks like to lead like Jesus daily, by surrendering it all to HIM

My internship was one of the greatest growth seasons of my life, ministerially and personally. Interning in church planting allowed me to see God working and moving all over the world.

I really love being able to pick the brains of all the pastors and being put in an environment where I can learn as much as possible. This internship has taught me a lot of great things that will help me in my career in the military as well as my ministry long after my military service.

Interning at Saddleback was such a privilege. I learned from so many wonderful people, whether it was through conversation or simply watching the way they interact with students. One of my favorite memories was leading a cabin at summer camp and being able to play a role in God's plan for the students.

My favorite part about this internship was that as I learned more about Saddleback, the more I grew to be completely in love with my church. God has been and will continue to do such big things here, and it's been awesome that I got to be part of it for a season

I am learning something new every day as an intern. Not only am I growing as a musician and music director, but as a disciple and a leader

Tyler Saddleback Worship

The Storytelling internship helped me find my voice as a writer. I learned how to write with compassion, edit with conviction, and interview with intention. The editorial skills I gained during my internship helped me land at the Orange County Register right after college! Now, I'm a lifestyle writer and am published regularly in OC Family Magazine and Coast Magazine. God has blessed me with lifelong professional and spiritual mentors because of my internship at Saddleback.


Interning at Saddleback Church taught me about how the job of the local church is to reflect the Kingdom of God to the community that it is planted in. To be the physical expression of Jesus' love, justice, and redeeming purposes.

I have learned so much during my internship at the food pantry about how to be a leader and how much of an impact every ministry has on people. For example, a simple act of giving a family food who is in need can lead them to accepting Christ. God is truly blessing this ministry and it's awesome to be a part of it!
