our mission

  • Cluster of Students (Saddleback Church’s Student Worship Ministry -aka- COS) exists to empower students – as musicians, worshipers and followers of Christ – to grow in their gifts, so they may honor God and help lead others into His presence.

  • The ministry is dedicated to equip students in Jr. High and High School, to serve their peers with their musical gifts.

  • COS encourages excellence. As Christians, we are called to do everything to the best of our ability. It is not our goal to show off or try to impress, but it’s important that we train in such a way that we can give God our very best as an act of worship.
