God created everyone to do something great.
As children, we grow up with big dreams - they are wonderful and amazing and impractical and inspiring. Yet somewhere along the way, we settle for something less than God's best for our lives. Our circumstances might be stressful - or even unbearable - and so we step away from our dreams. In some cases, a lifestyle of poor decisions takes a toll on our sense of wonder and joy. You may have given up on your dreams, but God hasn't given up on you - and he never will.
It's time to dream. Big.
God's dreams for you are too big to fulfill on your own, so you need to trust him with everything you've got! When you surrender your life to Jesus, he will give you opportunities you could never create on your own. Living out his dreams for your life means faithfully walking through the doors of opportunity he opens for you.
"When I open a door, no one can close it. And when I close a door, no one can open it." - Revelation 3:7 (CEV)

Richard Duane Warren was born in San Jose, California 28 January 1954, the son of a Baptist minister, James Warren. Rick earned a Bachelor of Arts from California Baptist University, a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary.
Rick felt called to full-time ministry when he was still an undergraduate, and was actively involved in student Christian groups. He and his wife Kay; married since 1975; founded Saddleback Church in 1980 when he was just 26 years old, with a congregation of 200 attenders. In the decades since, Saddleback has grown phenomenally; it now has an average attendance of 20,000 a week, and the influence of its ministry style and resources has extended worldwide. Rick is still the senior pastor at Saddleback, where he is known as 'Papa Rick' a voice of wisdom, hope, encouragement, and vision. Since 2005, he and his wife have given away 90% of their income, due to the extraordinary success of his publications.
Pastor Rick took the lessons he learned building up Saddleback and distilled them into a fivefold ministry approach called 'Purpose Driven'. Zondervan's 1995 publication of Rick's The Purpose Driven Church was a huge bestseller, and Saddleback became a model for churches everywhere. This was followed in 2002 by The Purpose Driven Life - a 40-day devotional that would sell over 30 million copies in five years. In 2004, Pastor Rick was invited to Rwanda by its president Paul Kagame, who had read The Purpose Driven Life and wanted to make his country a 'purpose driven nation'. This trip changed the trajectory of Pastor Rick's life and mission. God gave him a vision for The PEACE Plan, a mission to fight the five giants of spiritual emptiness, self-serving leadership, poverty, pandemic disease, and illiteracy that devastate the lives of men, women, and children around the world. Rick and Kay consider it their life's work to empower local churches and local leaders to create sustainable change that gives a voice to the voiceless and help to the helpless. To date, PEACE teams have participated in missions outreach in every nation of the world. Rick and Kay have used the PEACE platform to advocate for HIV/AIDS sufferers globally, mobilizing local churches to help prevent the spread of the disease and to care for those already affected.
In the decades since founding Saddleback Church, Pastor Rick has become one of the most respected and influential pastors in the US. He mentors young leaders, and many of today's leading pastors credit him and The Purpose Driven Church for inspiring them to pursue their own callings to ministry. As pastor to pastors, Rick has built the Purpose Driven Network, a global alliance of pastors from more than 160 countries and hundreds of denominations and has also founded Pastors.com, an online interactive community that provides sermons, forums, and other practice resources for pastors.
Rick and Kay have three adult children and four grandchildren. Their youngest son Matthew took his own life in 2013 after a long struggle with mental illness. Rick has been active in recent years seeking to build awareness in the church with regard to mental illness.
