Rick Warren announces he is stepping down at Saddleback Church

Rick Warren has announced his resignation from Saddleback Church.

Rick Warren, Author of bestselling book The Purpose Driven Life, has announced he will retire as senior pastor of Saddleback Church, following 40 years at the helm of one of America’s most influential churches.

Warren said will be stepping down from his role in September, and hand over to his successor, Andy Wood – who is currently lead pastor of Echo Church in San Jose, California.

Warren announced on Twitter commending Andy Wood for his experience in “growing a megachurch from zero” during his 14 years at Echo Church, as well as his biblical character qualities.

“Like Kay and me, Andy and Stacie started a brand new Purpose Driven Church with just a handful of people and they grew it to nearly 3,000 attendees on 4 campuses. Kay and I, and our Elders, have unanimously selected Andy Wood to lead us into the future as a church family. We are all SO excited! You’re going to absolutely LOVE this couple. Andy is 40 years old and full of God’s love!” wrote Warren on the Saddleback website.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
