Saddleback Church Senior Pastor Rick Warren just opened the newest campus of the megachurch in San Diego last Sunday. The San Diego community will now be able to hear inspiring messages of hope and take part in Sadddleback Worship every week without driving to other cities.
“Saddleback San Diego is one we’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” said Warren. “We have members who drive every week from San Diego to our other campuses, but there’s no reason for that in the future, because we’re starting Saddleback San Diego,” he added.
The new campus will also be offering services such as food pantry, Celebrate Recovery and other support groups and events.
Warren revealed that the campus will be led by Pastor Jeff Gonzales, who has previously served as a volunteer in Saddleback San Clemente, Christian News Wire reported.
“We’ve been waiting for the right pastor, and I’m happy to say that Jeff Gonzalez is coming back on our staff to become the new campus pastor at Saddleback San Diego.”
Gonzalez, a former marine, also served as a pastor while he was deployed in Afghanistan. He said that the newest campus is a prayer come true for the San Diego community.
