RICK WARREN, SADDLEBACK CHURCH,
THE MOST AMAZING FACTS! MOST AMAZING STORY!
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
CHRISTIPEDIA™ - RICK WARREN, SADDLEBACK CHURCH, THE MOST AMAZING FACTS! AMAZING STORY!
RICK WARREN, WHY IS HE GREAT?
Rick Warren: Actions Speak Louder than Words:
Rick Warren was born January 28, 1954, in San Jose, California, the son of Jimmy and Dot Warren. His father was also a Baptist minister, his mother a high school librarian.
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-1:
Rick Warren was raised in Ukiah, California, and graduated from Ukiah Public High School in 1972, where he founded the First Christian Club on the school's campus - a SOUL WINNING CLUB - "The Fishers of Men Club" adapted from Dr. Jack Hyles of First Baptist Church, Hammond, . . .
. . . still operating and starting "Fishers of Men Chubs!" 
>> Not too many current Mega-Pastors were Winning Souls in High School, openly before others;
>> Not too many current Mega-Pastors started a SOUL WINNING CLUB as a Teen-ager in a Public School!!!
** WISDOM: What a person is, does, and is concerned about in the High School years is VERY IMPORTANT to understanding any one! (Counseling, etc.,). Nearly all "GIVE UP" high school dreams, but most NEVER get beyond that ideal and/or values and admiration thereof, forever remaining part of their identity - secretly or openly!
* Many men are FOREVER the High School Sports Star, or the rock-band player, or car crazy person, or drug freak!
* Many woman are FOREVER the High School Cheerleader, Homecoming Queen or Attendant, the "flirt" the "sate" the "hot-sexy babe!" status!
x Equally pervasive, is that MANY never get past negative aspects: being mocked, ridiculed, picked on, being the "runt", "pimple-faced", "homely" the "wall-flower", the "Stutterer" the "Geek", that "weird kid!" the "church Kid", the "Preacher's kid!" . . .
x Wounds will heal, but scars survive the grave! (Christ's Scars SURVIVED the Resurrection!)
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-2:
Due to the success of his "Purpose-Driven Life" book sales, in 2005:
Compare this CHRIST-LIKE "GIVING NATURE" to RADICAL GREED of Name Ministers:
>> Kenneth Copeland, T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joseph Prince, Joel Osteen, Fred Price, Paula White, Benny Hinn, Oral Roberts, Eddie Long, John Hagee, Robert Schuller, Billy Graham, Franklin Jesse Duplantis, Michael Murdoch, Paul Crouch, Creflo Dollar, John Maxwell, Jim Bakker, Jim Swaggart, Paul Houston, Keith Moore - and a thousand others . . .
- have sold millions of books, making scores of millions of dollars . . .
. . . living in extreme wealth . . .
. . . ans STILL pleading with widows on Social Security to send them TWO MORE MITES!
They have "multiple, multi-million dollar homes!" $25,000 COMMODES, the fanciest quarter-million dollars cars from Rolls Royce's to who knows what and multi-million dollar private planes and jets . . . from more jewelry than a dealer . . . to slush funds of millions!
>> NONE OF THEM have given back 15, 20, 25 years of (or even one year of) salary!
>> ALMOST NONE OF THEM EVEN TITHE beyond two factors:
** They give TO THEIR OWN MINISTRY IN PUBLIC (prompting others) then take it RIGHT BACK OUT AND MORE - privately!
** They always bring a Check to Trinity Broadcasting, INSP, or Daystar . . . which is really "buying advertising time! This allows them to GET ON TV AND PLEAD for the WIDOW'S MITE . . .
** Feeding HUMAN GREED by promising the GREEDY, God will give them even more to FEED THEIR GREED!
Most of them are GREEDY, GRASPING-&-KEEPING every penny getting as rich as they can to the point of being "sickening" and having a true mental-heart sickness!
>> This author has visited most of their ministries over the decades, and when a minister comes along who IS CHRIST-LIKE WITH THEIR MONEY . . . IT STANDS OUT LIKE A COMET IN THE NIGHT SKY!
NOTE: The "Health-&-Wealth" Gospel is only SLIGHTLY-but-SERIOUSLY-and-SINFULLY TWISTED:
BIBLE WEALTH FACT-1: God does PROMISE TO FINANCIALLY BLESS THOSE WHO GIVE . . . TO THE POOR!!! NOT TO MILLIONAIRES . . . WASTING SCORES OF MILLIONS WHILE THE BODY OF CHRIST LANGUISHES IN 100 NATIONS!
BIBLE WEALTH FACT-2: The money God blesses GIVERS back is NOT TO WASTE ON SINFUL GREED ("let him who has two coats give to him who has NONE!" the New Testament commands!) but TO GIVE 'E-V-E-N M-O-R-E' TO THE STARVING, ILL-FED, ILL-CLAD MASSES . . .WHO NEED TO HEAR OF CHRIST WITH THE EVIDENCE OF HIS LOVE . . . HAVING THEIR STARVING CHILDREN FED AND SICK BODIES TREATED!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-3: When his 'Purpose Driven Life' became a best seller, Rick Warren and his wife Kay became "reverse tithers", . . .
. . . giving away 90% of their income and living off 10%.
>> AGAIN . . . while multitudes of ministers live in MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR HOMES . . . in greatest luxury with Rolls-Royce Cars, Private Jets, etc, such as Kenneth Copeland, Joseph Prince, T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Fred Price, Paula White, Benny Hinn, Oral Roberts, Eddie Long, Jesse Duplantis, Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Schuler, Michael Murdoch, Paul Crouch, Creflo Dollar, John Maxwell - and a thousand others - have all sold millions of books:
>> NONE OF THEM have become "reverse tithers" amassing personal wealth for their children and grandchildren . . . with most of them, keeping every penny getting as rich as they can!
***Perhaps this is why Warren's Book. . . has sold and is selling . . . . MORE BOOKS than ALL of the above's BEST-SELLERS COMBINED!!!***
Perhaps God can trust him with the great Success, as an ADVISOR TO PRESIDENTS IN SEVERAL NATIONS - with wealth - not to WASTE it on "SELF-WORSHIP!"
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-4:
Warren says he was called to full-time ministry when he was a 19-year-old student at California Baptist University.
In November 1973, he and a friend skipped classes and drove 350 miles to hear W.A. Criswell preach in San Francisco.
Warren waited afterwards to shake hands with Criswell who focused on Warren stating "I feel led to lay hands on you and pray for you!”
>> Note that Warren, even as a youth, put his calling and ministry ahead of personal achievements, college GPA, etc.,
>> Note WHAT he spent his money on - instead of Ball games and Spring Break - and was willing to sacrifice time and money to just to meet one of God's Great Pastors . . .
. . . hoping to learn how to be a better servant of God!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-5:
During his time at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Warren worked at the Texas Ranch for Christ, a ministry facility of Billie Hanks, Jr., where he began writing books.
He co-wrote two books, The Victory Scripture Memory Series (He was busy MEMORIZING SCRIPTURE . . . NOT TRYING TO MAKE MILLIONS!)
And the "Twelve Dynamic Bible Study Methods for Laity, with Billi Hanks, Jr. and Wayne Watts - desirous to TEACH COMMON PEOPLE how to know God better!
>> Warren didn't waste his youth with partying, chasing girls, cars, dates, and sports: rather he WORKED while in college, and spent his free time WRITING CHRISTIAN BOOKS!
>> Thus he was very dedicated, worked hard and long, and with his heart in the right place!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-6: In April 1980 Warren held Saddleback Church's first public service on Easter Sunday at the Laguna Hills High School Theater with 200 people in attendance.
>> Warren's greatness here was that he didn't wait on - or require - the perfect building (as if he were a 'Prima Dona') and/or a perfect situation.
>> He just got busy and started the best he could, where he could, with whatever he could afford!
>> In his case, at a public school!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-7:
Warren's great emphasis on winning souls led to rapid expansion of the Church. Of course he wanted to move out of the school and have a "Church Home".
However, in southern California, . . .
** Prices of land were going up faster than his congregation could save!
** So that after several years of saving money, they were FURTHER from being able to purchase land and build than they were years ago! It seemed hopeless!
** Additionally, the Church just kept on growing, so that plans had to be revised, re-revised, and then revised again!
> > Warren's greatness here, was that he didn't quit! He just kept on winning souls and growing the congregation, even though it was a great hardship - decade after decade - with no church home.
INCREDIBLY . . . Saddleback did not build its first permanent building until it had 10,000 weekly attenders!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-8:
How great was Warren's persistence?
His ever-growing congregation LITERALLY used 80 different facilities in its 28-year history! . . .
. . . can you IMAGINE Changing Church facilities . . .
. . . . . . and CHURCH ADDRESSES 80 times!!!
>> How would you keep the public KNOWING where to come for Meetings?
>> In addition to this, for many, many years, they could NOT even meet in the same school building Sunday morning and Sunday night . . .
. . . and they couldn't meet in EITHER of the Sunday facilities for their midweek meeting!
Talk about frustration, trials and tribulations!
>> NOT only THREE LOCATIONS PER WEEK - WHILE changing locations 80 times - but at first hauling PA systems, platform furniture, chairs, Communion table, folding chairs, flags, Sunday School material, youth group materials, nursery facilities, etc. - loading and unloading, storing, keeping track of . . .
Talk about patience and persistence!
>> At first they moved all of this in pick-up trucks, then bigger trucks, then FINALLY several semi-tractor trailers had to be RENTED to move EVERY thing . . . EVERY meeting . . . and STORE it all between meetings . . .
>> winter and summer, rain or shine; fires, earthquakes and mudslides . . ."just get-her-done" . . . boys . . . it's time to preach!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-9:
FINALLY, after decades, they were able to purchase property! Time for the great palace, RIGHT? Not Quite!
Again, the real estate was SO EXPENSIVE in Los Angeles, that when the current Lake Forest campus was purchased in the early 1990s,
. . . ALL THEY COULD AFFORD WAS . . . A PLASTIC TENT!!!!
. . . Yes, a real, 2,300-seat plastic tent was used for worship services for several more years, with four services each weekend.
. . . (However, after all the moving around, setting up, taking down, loading and unloading, storing, and changing addresses constantly . . . just meeting in ONE PLACE every time . . . would be heaven indeed . . . even though a plastic unheated-in-the winter, . . . uncooled in the summer TENT!)
> > Warren's greatness here was NOT going into debt to build IMMEDIATELY! Chances are, the money WOULD have come in as the Congregation continued to grow . . . but he LIVED WITHIN HIS MEANS . . . and they got the PLASTIC TENT
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-10:
Finally, the money came in and they had reached the promised land! Robert Schuller built a Crystal Cathedral . . . Joel Osteen the Compact Center . . .
. . . what did Rick Warren do with his many millions?
>> Rick Warren built the most expensive and best Christian School facilities for middle school and high school IN THE WORLD!
In June 2008, a $20+ million student ministry facility called the "Refinery", was completed, housing the middle school and high school ministries, consisting of 1,500 students.
>> KIDS! RICK WARREN SPENT ALL HIS MONEY ON KIDS . . . and KIDS' MINISTRY!
RICK WARREN: Why Is He Great?
Rick Warren: GREAT FACT-11:
Perhaps somewhere in these ten facts that impresses this Minister, you can find some inspiration for your own ministry, or some guideline, or some help in making a PRIORITY DECISION!

Could you please share your State of Salvation that we may better serve our readers? At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour! I do believe Jesus is the Saviour; I know I have Eternal Life!I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life;
In 'VERY FEW MINUTES'...you can Know for Certain if you're saved for CERTAIN ...or not! 1 John 5:13 I want to know with CERTAINLY what God's Word declares:
A Second Most Important Question! Can you explain to a Spouse, a Child or a Friend HOW "Eternal Life as God's FREE GIFT" - Unearned and Undeserved? Romans 6:23 If not, please read "Eternal Life as God's FREE GIFT!" PLEASE, will you name "Ministers-Best-Friend.com" aloud . . .. . .in Prayer Daily, or as often as you think of us? PLEASE?
Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provide web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA , ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, MEDIPEDIA, ETC., ALL BIBLE-BASED!
Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular scripture, fact, leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.
We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.
Thus we trust, hope and pray, that ALL BELIEVERS who look to the Lord Jesus ONLY, to the Word of God ONLY, to "His will (ONLY!) being done on this Earth AS IN HEAVEN"
In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:
