A Message From Our Pastor

“Twenty-three years ago, God prompted me to step out in faith and plant a church in downtown Santa Barbara. The vision was to share the love of Jesus with every person from the ocean to the hills. Our invitation was “come as you are,” “no perfect people allowed,” and “can church be this much fun!?”

That is STILL who we are today!

Now, I believe we are like a plant that’s outgrown its pot. IT’S TIME to re-plant. I believe God is calling Oceanhills to take what God has given and grown, and re-plant by putting down deeper roots to become a more permanent presence in our city.

Through a series of recent events, our search team was made aware of a beautiful piece of property for sale in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. After seeking counsel, we decided to take a step of faith, believing that God is in this!

I am excited to announce that we have purchased this building! I am prayerfully inviting you to join us in this journey to raise the funds we need as we make this God-sized dream a reality.

Love Everyone. Always.

Dr. Jon Ireland, Founding + Lead Pastor
