Shepherd’s Grove is a community of happy and whole students of Jesus. We’ve chosen to be a radically hospitable faith community focused on spiritual formation with God, our community with each other, and our missional calling to the world we live in. We believe that God’s kingdom is flourishing and thriving, growing and bearing fruit. It’s our mission to join God in what he is already doing in the world he created with such love and care.

01 / We aim to be a church of happy and whole students of Jesus.

Happiness is a core value of ours at Shepherd’s Grove. We believe that as we encounter the life-changing person of Jesus and seek to mold our lives to be like him, we are transformed to be genuinely happy people. For us, being a happy and whole student of Jesus is accomplished as we gather in community during our Sunday morning services, grow in discipleship through small groups, and use our gifts to give back to the community. You’ll find this language throughout everything we do at Shepherd’s Grove.

02 / Dignity shapes everything we do.

At Shepherd’s Grove, we believe every person deserves dignity because every person is loved by God. Our love and dignity for others is a direct overflow from the love and dignity we receive from God. This affects everything we do and enables us to model God’s love to others who look, act, or believe differently than we do. We are dedicated to sharing God’s love with our local community.

03 / We are a local church with a global mission.

Every day, we have the immense joy of sharing God’s love and dignity with our local community — and millions of people around the world. We are blessed to share our ministry beyond the Shepherd’s Grove church campus through the internationally televised Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller. So, don’t be surprised to see cameras, folks wearing headsets or a large jib when you walk through our front doors. During our services and part of Hour of Power, you’ll also hear from actors, authors, ministry founders, athletes, pastors, and/or music artists who have an inspirational story to share with our church attenders and viewers.

We are so proud of our television ministry and the many lives around the world that have been transformed through it — and we think you will be, too. You may even see yourself on an episode or two!


Physical Address: 4445 Alton Pkwy, Irvine, CA 92604. Find all the details you need on our Church Campus page.
All of our services are held in the Sanctuary. If you arrive before the prior service has finished, we invite you to grab a cup of coffee on the Courtyard — and check out our Welcome, Connect, Outreach, and Bookstore tables while you’re there!

Whether your kids are in elementary school, middle school, high school or are still in diapers, there’s a special place for them at Shepherd’s Grove. During our 9:45 am and 11:00 am services, kindergarten and under are nurtured in our Early Childhood rooms (located in the Jenny Hart building, across from the Sanctuary), while kids in 1st through 6th grade will learn about Jesus in a safe, fun, hands-on and creative setting in our Children’s Ministry area in the Fellowship Hall.

We desire to create a safe and friendly worship space for all our guests and members. If you have questions about anything, we encourage you to seek out a pastor, usher, or volunteer to help you.

Here are a few of things that will help you out if your child gets fussy. You may sit in the Lobby during service (you will still be able to hear the service through the lobby speakers). We also have books and crafts available on the lobby tables to engage your child. Please also feel free to visit Children’s Ministry in the Jenny Hart building (across the Sanctuary.) Classes and childcare are available at 9:45 and 11:00.

Regarding cell phones, we ask that everyone silence all mobile devices before entering the service to create a focused worship space for everyone.

For those who need them, Assisted Listening Devices are available during the Traditional service. You may pick one up at the back of the Sanctuary or see an usher for assistance.

At our three services, we proclaim Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength through traditional hymns, anthems, and modern worship songs.

No matter your personal style, we want you to feel comfortable at Shepherd’s Grove. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed like you. As for your kids? Children learn while they play, and we encourage hands-on play so that children are learning through all their senses. Painting and other “messy” activities are also encouraged, so use your own judgment about how dressed up your child is while at church. Our middle and high school students usually dress casually on Sundays and Thursday evenings because games and sporting events are often held outside and involve getting messy.
Our pastors would love to meet you! When available, Bobby and Hannah (or the preaching pastor of the week) make every attempt to briefly meet folks between services at the Bookstore table on the Courtyard. If the preaching pastor is not available after worship, the assisting pastor(s) can be found on the Courtyard after each service. If you would like a more in-depth visit with any of the pastors, please visit the CONNECT table to set up a time for a personal visit or phone call.
