Richard D. "Rick" Warren (born January 28, 1954) is the founder and senior pastor of the evangelical Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, the fourth largest church in the United States. He is also a bestselling author of many Christian books, including his guide to Christian church ministry and evangelism entitled The Purpose Driven Church, which has spawned a series of conferences on Christian ministry and evangelism. He is perhaps most famously known for the subsequent devotional The Purpose Driven Life, which has sold over 20 million copies, becoming one of the best selling non-fiction books of all time.

Despite Warren's is closely aligned with conservative evangelical viewpoints.

On the eve of the 2004 presidential election, Warren sent an email to the Saddleback Church congregation telling them that there were five non-negotiable issues that should determine their vote:

What does each candidate believe about abortion and protecting the lives of unborn children?
What does each candidate believe about using unborn babies for stem-cell harvesting?

What does each candidate believe about homosexual marriage?

What does each candidate believe about human cloning?

What does each candidate believe about euthanasia—the killing of elderly and invalids?

Warren has stated that homosexuality is not a natural way of life and thus not a human right,
and should not be tolerated, and that civil unions are not a civil right.

In a conversation with Sam Harris for Newsweek, Warren also spoke out against evolution and in favor of creationism, and compared atheists to Mao, Stalin, and Pol Pot.

Asked about the difference between himself and Focus on the Family president James Dobson, Warren claimed that "it's a matter of tone."

Warren's prominent inclusion in the inauguration shines a new a light on the pastor, whom Obama lauded in his second book, The Audacity of Hope.
