Pastor Rick Warren has drawn in massive donations for his church after making a plea.
Lake Forest, California (WiredPRNews.com) – Efforts by evangelical pastor Rick Warren to raise enough donations to cover a $900,000 budget deficit for his Southern California based church have proven effective. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Warren’s donation plea has helped raise $2.4 million for Saddleback Church.
Warren is quoted by the AP as stating of the donations received, “This is pretty amazing… I don’t think any church has gotten a cash offering like that off a letter.” Warren made an announcement of the donations to his congregation, citing the total only included what had been received as of New Year’s Eve and more was anticipated. He is further quoted as stating, “We’re starting the new decade with a surplus… It came from thousands of ordinary people. This was not one big fat cat.”
