Not one but nine new sites. I just hope he isn’t opening a site in HB:
Within the next three years the megachurch in the Lake Forest, Calif. aims to launch nine new off-site campuses in addition to its San Clemente campus, which meets every weekend at a local high school, and step up its global P.E.A.C.E. plan. By 2010, Saddleback hopes to see 10,000 more lives changed and baptised.
“One of the most important words in the Christian life [is] ‘go,’” said Rick Warren, founding and senior pastor of Saddleback, during his “Multiplying Our Impact” sermon series last month. “The Christian life is a journey and over and over again God says you are to go. We are not a passive faith; you are a ‘going’ faith.”
So, is this just the latest chapter in Satan’s attempt to take over the world? Or is Rick pursuing the great commission in a technologically modern and culturally acceptable way?
Let the comments fly!
