Yesterday, I got the new CBD “Pastor’s Resources” catalogue in the mail. In it, they have a few quotes from Pastors like John MacArthur and Rick Warren, and the Warren quote stuck out to me in an interesting way. Let me know what you think:
“I started Saddleback Valley Community Church in Orange County, California, in 1980, and spent the next 15 years testing, applying, and refining the principles, processes, and practices in Purpose-Driven Church. Like a research and development center, we’ve experimented with all kinds of approaches to reaching, teaching, training, and sending out God’s people. Saddelback has served as a labratory for everything written in the book. The results have been very gratifying and, I believe, brought glory to God. I am continually humbled by God’s power to use ordinary people in extraordinary ways.”
So what do you think? Anything in that statement jump out at you?
