Leadership Has a Purpose
Leadership is stewardship.
– Rick Warren
Rick Warren is the founding pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California.
After writing the immensely popular Purpose Driven Life he had a crisis of purpose. He came to believe that it is God’s intention for each of us to use our talents and influence to do good.
For four years I pastored a church in Southern California, practically in the shadow of Saddleback Church.
While Rick Warren and I come from different tribes – I, a Lutheran and he, a Baptist – I continue to learn a lot from Rick, especially about leadership.
Not too many Christians are asked to speak at TED, but Rick was and here’s his talk. Let me know what you think in the comments section below!
