Missions magazine interviews Rick Warren

The spring edition of “Missions Leader” magazine features an interview with Rick Warren, senior pastor of California’s Saddleback Church and author of the best-selling book, “The Purpose-Driven Life.” Warren tells of his call to ministry, passion for missions, heart for the AIDS crisis, and how missions leaders can motivate the next generation.

In the interview, Warren says, “When Jesus told the disciples to go into the world and make disciples, it was physically impossible. It’s not for us. Today we can fly anywhere in 24 hours; we are the first generation that truly can be world-class Christians. That’s an enormous privilege and a responsibility. It means that we can’t just care about our own churches, our own families, or our own communities. We must care about the whole world; God has called us to be a light for the nations.”
