The 10x10 Vision

I posted the other day on Matt's blog about new Saddleback campuses and efforts to reach the 10x10 vision, and I just got an email about the saddlebackfamily.com website being updated with a clear picture of Pastor Rick's vision for the next 3 years. Exciting stuff to be a part of, here's a clip:

In his recent message on “Multiplying the Impact of Your Life,” Pastor Rick unveiled the newest vision for Saddleback Church. The vision, called 10 x 10, centers around three goals we’re aiming to achieve by the end of 2010:

10,000 more changed lives resulting in 10,000 more baptisms at Saddleback 10,000 more small groups formed across Southern California
10 new Saddleback congregations across the region

The emphasis of the plan is not just on the numbers, however, but on fulfilling the Great Commandment by learning to love. Pastor Rick says, “If you’re going to make an impact, you have to do it in love, do it with love, and love has to be the goal and the motivation of your life.” The 10 x 10 movement will be fueled by 40 months of reaching out in love. During these months, beginning in September and concluding in December of 2010, the church will practically demonstrate God’s love by meeting the needs of those around us.

I would like to know if his 10x10 plan coincides with the CFR's (Council on Foreign Relations) plan to have a 'North American Union' by 2010..Where essentially the USA would surrender its borders with Mexico & Canada. (see... http://www.cfr.org/publication/7914/...) I have been keeping a close eye on Pastor Ricks involvement since he is a member of the CFR...My Wife and I are both members of Saddleback and Love the Church..however his marching to the tune of the CFR is totally frightening...What are your thoughts??

You could ask Pastor Rick's office for an official statement, but personally I don't see any connection.

This initiative is about growing the church and our vision for the future here in Orange County, and has nothing to do with what you mentioned.

Remember, of course, that I don't speak for Saddleback here on the blog, so please contact the church office if you would like an official statement.
