Senior pastor, author, Founder of Saddleback Church Rick Warren is the voice of wisdom, vision, and purpose. He has been faithfully stewarding his ministry since he was 26 years old and has a global network that provides resources to pastors and believers. He is the author of the one of the best selling books of all time, The Purpose Drive Life: What On Earth Am I Here For?, selling more than 50 million copies. This past June, his church began the official search for Warren's successor. Warren has been the only pastor leading his church family since 1980. He and his wife Kay have known this time would come and they patiently waited on God's perfect timing. He believes this is the proper time for him to transition out of his role after serving for 42 years. Warren has paved the way and created the infrastructure for the individual who will take his place, making room for the next generation to lead and take the church's vision into the future.
