What would you do if you were given access to a 170 acre retreat center in the heart of Orange County, the resources of Saddleback Church and a mandate to help plant 100 churches a year, plant churches in the 100 most influential cities in the world and plant a church among every unreached people group on earth by the end of the decade? Seriously, what would you do?
That is the vision that drives the Saddleback Leadership Academy. Our mandate from Pastor Rick Warren is to lead a church planting revolution that will change the face of Christianity across America and around the world. This fall we will be begin resourcing hundreds of leaders to transform congregations, launch campuses, and plant churches across the globe. We are creating opportunities for leaders no matter where they are in the development process, from rookie to seasoned veteran.
So, if you are fired up by the Great Commission and the Great Commandment, if the thought of leading a tribe to change the world gets your juices flowing, if you think God has created you to be a revolutionary there is a place for you at the table. Are you ready to join the fray?
