The Word of God increased and multiplied

Acts 12:24

In 2018, God gave our leadership a vision to multiply the message of Jesus digitally, plant one new church a year, invest in the next generation, and serve our cities. When the pandemic hit, Mariners went into action and saw this vision multiply in ways we never imagined.

A Message From
Pastor Eric

Dear Mariners,

God is always working to care for His people and advance His Kingdom. In the last few years, we have seen God work through Mariners Church in some beautiful and tangible ways. And through your prayers and generosity, you have been part of all God has done in the lives of people He deeply loves.

  • We are serving people physically and digitally. Our core offerings are now all offered online as well as in person. This has allowed us to serve those who call Mariners home and reach those who are searching for Jesus wherever they are.

  • We launched five new Mariners congregations: Santa Ana, Tustin, Mission Viejo, North Irvine, and Oceanside. These congregations are providing new, significant opportunities for people to follow Jesus, serve one another, grow together, and change the world.
  • We are multiplying our local and global outreach efforts to the underserved and marginalized through the expansion of Mariners Lighthouse Community Centers connected to our new Mariners congregations, and our deepened, ongoing work with our global partners.

  • We have expanded opportunities for people to connect in the community and grow deeper in their faith. I know there are many stories of people in pain finding hope through the Mariners community.

Thank you for partnering with us to serve people and advance the gospel. I love our church so much and can’t wait to see where the Lord will take us next.

In Christ,

Eric Geiger, Senior Pastor


As followers of Jesus, we are part of a beautiful heritage of multiplication. The early Christians spread the Word and served their communities generously, and as they did so, the watching world was impacted, and the faith multiplied
(Acts 2-6).

Seeking to follow the example of the early Christians, Mariners has remained committed
to joining God where He is already at work, multiplying and amplifying the good news of Jesus around the world.

In 2018, God gave our leadership a vision to multiply the message of Jesus digitally, plant one new church a year, invest in the next generation, and serve our cities. When the pandemic hit, Mariners went into action and saw this vision multiply in ways we never imagined.

The construction of a new production studio will allow us to create more content to serve people digitally.

Multiply The Word to People Digitally

Throughout 2021, we continued to invest in and expand our digital ministry, amplifying God’s message and reaching people from all over the country and globally. Since March 2020, we’ve seen our digital impact increase exponentially as we’ve connected people to relevant, biblical content through the Mariners website, app, social channels, and podcasts.

Multiply The Church Throughout Southern California

Throughout the past year, we’ve seen God multiply our impact in incredible ways, with more and more people engaging with Mariners for the first time. By investing in the build-out of permanent locations (like the Ramona Building in Santa Ana), we send a signal to the city that we’re invested, and create a reliable place for people to gather, worship, and invite their friends.

Lower Lawn Amphitheater

This permanent outdoor amphitheater will create room for up to 800 people to worship, grow, learn, and connect while enjoying the beauty of God’s creation.

Group Space

By transitioning the first floor and patio of the Ministry Center into Group Space, we increase our group capacity by 60%.

MULTIPLY Disciples Through Additional Venues For Worship and Biblical Community

As Mariners Irvine continues to grow, we hope to steward every inch of the property God has given us by providing additional spaces for people to hear God’s Word, connect in community, and grow deeper in their faith. Our campus is at capacity five out of seven nights every week! The construction of a permanent outdoor amphitheater provides a beautiful space for those who prefer and enjoy worshiping outside, expands our weekend seating capacity by 800, and allows the Upper Lawn to return to the park-like atmosphere unique to the Irvine campus. By repurposing the first floor of the Ministry Center and constructing outdoor rooms, we increase our capacity by 60%, serving the nearly 4,000 people who meet at Mariners weekly for Rooted, Deep Dive, and other group studies.

Church Multiplication

Creative and contextualized church planting, re-planting, and revitalization will lead to new disciples, new leaders, new insights and new expressions for the church in the prominent global city in Southeast Asia.

City Impact Initiatives

Collaborative efforts of individuals, churches, and organizations will positively engage and bring change in the city (such as work, poverty and inadequate education).

Pastoral Training Center

This much-needed school will train 25-30 pastors each year who will be tasked to plant 3 churches in 7 years in rural areas.

Christian Education

In addition to training adult pastors, the pastoral training center will operate as a private school for over 1,000 kids, building goodwill in the community, providing a Christian education to non-Christians, and a sustainable model for growth.

MULTIPLY The Gospel Throughout the World

God has given us a huge opportunity to reach and serve 1.38 billion people and the home to ⅓ of the world’s unreached people groups – people who have never heard the good news of Jesus’ love. Our two-pronged strategy will allow us to join God’s work in this country by planting churches and equipping ministry leaders to bring the gospel to their communities.

Mariners Multiply



Your prayers and participation in Multiply are what allow Mariners to move forward with this God-sized dream. A vision of this magnitude requires faith and faithfulness. We invite you to be a part of this incredible journey, believing that God will multiply His work in the world as He multiplies our belief in Him.

Pray that the Word would multiply across digital channels.

Pray that the ministries of Mariners make the most of every opportunity and digital channels to share the love of Jesus, the hope of the Church, and the truth of God’s Word with the world.

Pray that the Word would multiply throughout Southern California.

The opportunity to share the Gospel is all around us! Pray that we can develop key relationships in the cities where our congregations are planted that will allow us to serve these communities well.

Pray that disciples would be multiplied through worship and community.

As people’s desire to worship and grow together becomes more prevalent, pray that Mariners would be ready to welcome and receive them, connecting them to God and to a community of believers.

Pray for the people of the world to receive the good news of Jesus Christ. 

Ask the Lord for revival in our country of focus. Pray for protection over the leaders and pastors risking their lives to share the hope they’ve received from God, and for the hearts of the people to be receptive to His grace.

Pray the Lord would speak to you as you consider your part in the MULTIPLY CAMPAIGN

Give To The Multiply Campaign

Join us in this Kingdom work! The Bible tells us that generosity is not about equal gifts, but equal sacrifice; giving faithfully what the Lord puts on your heart. Ask God to show you what He would have you contribute to multiplying God’s work through Mariners.
