California-based Saddleback Church opens in South of Manila

Saddleback South Manila is launching in Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna this July 19, 2014. Saddleback Church is a group of people who love God and love each other. Saddleback Church is into community outreach, worship, and doing life together.

Saddleback Church serves 3 purposes:
* Model a church that lives out God's purposes and the PEACE Plan (Planting churches that promote reconciliation, Equipping servant leaders, Assisting the poor, Caring for the sick, and Educating the next generation)
* Equip pastors and church leaders on how to live out God's purposes and the PEACE Plan
* Catalyze and mobilize churches to reach the remaining 3,100 unengaaged, unreached people groups

The soon-to-be launched Saddleback South Manila is part of Southern California-based Saddleback Church, founded in 1980 by The Purpose Driven Life author Pastor Rick Warren and his wife, Kay. Saddleback South Manila will house a live worship experience for about 1,500 people, with concurrent children’s and youth services.

Saddleback South Manila will be led by Dr. Narry Santos and his wife, Hazel. Pastor Narry served as the Southeast Asia National Coordinator for the Purpose Driven Church network, established from the principles found in Rick Warren’s book,Purpose Driven Church. His other ministry involvements include pastoring Greenhills Christian Fellowship (GCF) for almost 20 years, 13 of which were in Manila and seven of which were in Toronto.

Saddleback Church South Manila believes that Jesus’ unlimited love can bring about meaningful change in your life. Join in the weekly worship times where you’ll grow in your faith, find encouragement for your life, and build relationships with a community of believers who love God and others.

25 pastors and PEACE Teams from Lake Forest are flying in Manila to support the launch. Aside from the worship music and video teaching from Pastor Rick Warren, Mr. Ogie Alcasid and James Wright are coming in as guest performers, so you can expect a special celebration on the said occasion!
