Kidside is for birth - 5th grade. A place to grow in their faith journey. Our staff and team of screened volunteers are committed to help kids learn to pursue God, connect in community, and unleash compassion. Visit eastside.com/kids for more information.
Join us in The Commons at 11am for 6th - 12th graders. Get to know other students, hear a short Biblically based message, and then break into groups with a small group leader. You’re welcome to stop by and meet the leaders as you drop off your student. We promise to welcome them in and take good care of every student.
Change Makers are the heroes making a difference every week. At Eastside, we like to say this is for everyone - and that includes finding a place to volunteer. If you'd like to use your time and experience to have a positive impact on others, take some time to check out all the opportunities to serve.
We have an exciting opportunity to lead worship at our Irvine Campus. God is multiplying our ministry and while we are grateful and humbled by all of this, we're also eager to continually add new staff and leaders to our team so we can continue pursuing all that God has for and through us. We currently have three strategic roles to fill at our Irvine campus.
Brendan was raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he watched his parents lead thousands of young people to a relationship with Jesus through a missionary organization called Youth With A Mission, aka YWAM. He has traveled to over 20 countries and served extensively in Haiti and Samoa. From a young age, he knew he had a calling to be in full-time ministry but did not know when that calling would come to fruition.
Long story short, Brendan went to college in Washington and studied marketing, ended up in Silicon Valley where he pursued a marketing career in the tech world, met his wife Liz, got married, moved to Orange County during covid, welcomed his first child into the world, and responded to the call on his life for full-time ministry by accepting this role as the Campus Pastor for Eastside Irvine.
He and his wife, Liz, are excited to see how the Lord will use South Orange County's local church to mobilize Jesus-loving people to serve and unleash compassion in nearby communities.
