Here is how the Saddleback Church Model is taught around the globe, incorporating Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan. Here, Dave Holden uses a white board to capture the symbols to help you learn it too. Got it?
Law, Law,Law, Law,Law,Law, Law,Law, Law, Law, Law, Law, Law, Law, Law, Law.”
“It’s simple. We bring people in, build them up, train them for ministry, send them out. (Repeat.)”
Um, Saddleback, where is the Gospel? Isn’t the Church that Jesus established supposed to be built upon the Rock, the truth of what Jesus did on the Cross for our Sin? Where is that call to repentance? Oh dear, your Purpose Driven model is based on what you are doing to create “change-makers,” and not what He did.
If that sounds harsh, I’m afraid it is. You see, I watched this video shortly after watching the most incredible, powerful, humble man of God explain why sharing the Gospel is the most important, loving thing you can ever do.
