Sr. Pastor Search

Our Story

Sunkist Community Church was founded in 1966 affiliated with the North American Baptist Conference. We meet on an established 3 .8 acre campus with a sanctuary, fellowship hall, and education/ administration building. We are debt-free and have and average weekly attendance of 40-50 people with 85 members. We are located in East Anaheim in Orange County, California. We sit in a multi-cultural community about 40 miles southeast of Los Angeles, blocks away from the home of the MLB Angels and the NHL Ducks as well as Disneyland Resort. 

Over the last two decades we have experienced changing demographics in our community of Anaheim, CA. Many longtime Sunkist families have moved away after they have raised their families, while the community surrounding the church has grown in its Hispanic population. The church has struggled to keep up with these changes. We are looking for a pastor who can reinvigorate the people of our congregation, and move the church into a new season in which the gospel would shine brightly into our community, reaching a multi-ethnic and multi-generational population.
