2006 CHA recipients honored at Saddleback during Purpose Driven Church conference

Pastors representing churches from all around the world, including Argentina, Uganda, and the Philippines, were honored as part of the 2006 Purpose Driven Church conference. Pastor Rick Warren met with the 2006 Church Health Award recipients, along with winners from previous years and regional Purpose Driven leaders, at a reception on May 15 at Saddleback Church.

Pastors were given the opportunity to share their stories of integrating the Purpose Driven ® model into their churches with Pastor Rick and each other. Many of them expressed their gratitude for how the five biblical purposes helped shape their congregations into healthy churches. This was followed by a presentation of plaques to the CHA winners and an opportunity for a photograph with Pastor Rick.

Pastor Rick asked those gathered to continue to help him teach God’s purposes to churches around the world.

Purpose Driven Ministries honors healthy churches

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (PD) - Nearly fifty congregations from 14 nations received Church Health Awards during the 2006 Purpose Driven Church conference held at Saddleback Church, May 16-19.

“These churches understand the importance of maintaining a balance between the five biblical purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and mission,” said Rick Warren, founding pastor of Saddleback Church and Purpose Driven Ministries. “These congregations embrace Purpose Driven characteristics to not only grow in numbers, but, more importantly, to grow in health.”

“That’s why, through these awards, we emphasize balance, health, and strength over size or shape,” Warren said. “There is no correlation between the size of a church and its strength.”

Since 1999, Purpose Driven Ministries has annually honored churches that have shown excellence in adapting the Purpose Driven paradigm within their congregations. With thousands of churches becoming purpose driven following their experience with the 40 Days of Purpose campaign, Purpose Driven decided to honor 46 churches this year.
