  1. Sounds good. I need a ministry related position, pastor, associate, assistant, or church planter. Staff pastor or something. I working myself into old age without really doing ministry! Please email me some help. PLEASE!

  2. This is a great post. Where do i go to get more specific information for our church? Thanks and God Bless you.

  3. This is so true. Since it is easier to evaluate growth (numerically) we default to that. It takes more time and is very subjective to evaluate church health so we shy away from that. The result is we believe bigger is healthier. Many non- Christ following groups attract big crowds but it has nothing to do with the Gospel or Jesus Christ. Strive for health and everything else will work out. Thanks for the reminder Rick!

  4. I took over a failing company in ’98. I was armed only with one book as training to handle this turn-around, called The Purpose Driven Church, by Rick Warren. I met with management and said that this was the playbook to our recovery.

    I had wanted to serve full-time in ministry and went to training at Saddleback Church designed around this book in ’95. I thought to myself, I wished I had known these concepts when I was in business. 3 years later, I would.

    The company went on to huge success and has touched many lives in the process. Anyone who has been blessed by this company, including me, owes a debt of gratitude to Rick Warren. I doubt it would exist today without him.

    I pray God richly bless Rick for his faithful service to Him and for impacting so many lives for Christ.

  5. “The church is a Body, not a business – an organism, not an organization. It’s alive.” Absolutely this is so very true. My question then is this. Why have you invested so much time over your life being mentored by Peter Drucker who has made a name for himself by successfully injecting business philosophy directly into the church? I’m not criticizing here, I’m trying to understand your methodology.

  6. I’ve read your book, ‘Purpose Driven Life’. It left a deep & profound impact upon my life. God bless you for that.
