Get The Purpose Driven Life

Purpose Driven (PD) is an intentional strategy and structure developed for churches worldwide to build church health by focusing on the five purposes for the church designed by God.

It’s a simple path of discipleship to turn seekers into reproducing disciples. The process trains churches how to introduce attendees to membership and move members into progressively deeper steps of commitment and maturity, equipping the church to transform their city and the world.

PD shifts the focus away from the church building programs to emphasizing a people-building process. Warren says, “If you will concentrate on building people, God will build the church.”

The five purposes for the church, based on The Great Commission and The Great Commandment are: Fellowship, Discipleship, Worship, Ministry, and Evangelism.
