About Saddleback Resources

Pastor Rick Warren founded Saddleback Church in 1980 as a small Bible study. Today, it has grown to over 20,000 people attending weekend services and over 5,000 small groups meeting during the weekdays.

The Purpose Driven model has transformed churches around the world. It is Pastor Rick's desire for every church to learn about these tools. We hope you use our resources to grow as an individual and expand the reach of your church.
