WHO WE ARE
HOW WE BECAME MAKERS
Makers church began in 2017 as a new expression of what was formerly Mosaic San Diego. Mosaic SD, which began in 2010, was a campus of Mosaic Los Angeles, under the faithful and dynamic leadership of Pastors Erwin and Kim McManus.
Before becoming the pastors of Mosaic SD, Derrick and Laurel Miller lived in LA while Laurel was attending graduate school at USC. While living in LA, Derrick and Laurel discovered Mosaic and immediately began serving and leading. Derrick and Laurel’s plan was to eventually relocate back to San Diego, as Derrick was commuting from LA to SD where he was a full-time firefighter, but neither could imagine leaving their church community. This is when the vision for bringing Mosaic to San Diego began to grow. Four years later, Derrick and Laurel would find themselves living back in San Diego and their dream of Mosaic SD coming to life.
After an incredible seven-year season of ministry as Mosaic San Diego, Derrick and Laurel began to feel the call to establish a unique expression as an autonomous church. Under the blessing and commission from Mosaic LA, in March of 2017, Makers church was founded.
This transition allowed our community to step fully into the essence of who we are as a church body and pursue the unique mission we feel God has placed on our hearts.One distinctive of Makers church is that our entire staff is co-vocational, working both in the marketplace and in the church. We possess a clear conviction that vocation and ministry are deeply connected and that every follower of Jesus is called to be a minister of the gospel.
Our desire is to MAKE on earth as it is in heaven and we believe this begins with the work we do, the families we raise, the relationships we cultivate and the lives we lead. We hope you will join us!
WHY WE EXIST
Our Mission is to MAKE on earth as it is in heaven –to help you live your best life through encountering God, growing your faith, discovering your purpose and making a better world.
HOW WE FULFILL OUR MISSION
Humanity is uniquely designed by God to be generative. We were created by our Maker to receive and produce peace, beauty, love, hope, and a better future.
We believe people matter most and life is better lived together. We choose to be united by our commonalities rather than divided by our differences.
Big dreams require great risk, and the choice of faith over fear. We’re not afraid to fail, but value wisdom gained from experience, humility, and trust.
We believe transformation is a process. We are all works in progress. Our hope is to be constantly remade and renewed by the power of Jesus.
