Krista flew to LAX and drove south to Orange County to visit the Warrens at the offices of Saddleback Church. We filmed the entire conversation (except for the last two minutes when we ran out of tape) to include you in the process.
In this program we revisit a 2007 conversation with evangelical leaders Rick and Kay Warren — exploring where they came from and what motivates them. Rick Warren hosted the first post-primary joint appearance of Barack Obama and John McCain at his Saddleback Church in southern California, one of the largest churches in the U.S. This two hour event, broadcast live on CNN, is just one sign of the cross-cultural authority he and Kay have achieved in a handful of years.
