Rick Warren Draws Record Numbers at Korean World Cup Stadium

ICC NOTE: Rick Warren, author of the Purpose Driven Life and a mega-church pastor, spoke to a crowd of 100,000 in South Koreans Thursday speaking openly about the Good News. Many fear that Warren ’s future travel into North Korea to preach the Gospel will expose the Christian population, and therefore endanger them. Yet, Warren insists on going, determined to motivate the people to “spread their blessings to the world.”

The Sangamdong World Cup Stadium saw a record attendance number of 100,000 people Thursday night when Pastor Rick Warren told the massive crowd of Christians to spread their blessings to the world. Otherwise, the mega-church pastor said, a third revival will not come to the country.

SEOUL, South Korea – The Sangamdong World Cup Stadium saw a record attendance number of 100,000 people Thursday night when Pastor Rick Warren told the massive crowd of Christians to spread their blessings to the world. Otherwise, the megachurch pastor said, a third revival will not come to the country.
For a revival to happen in Korea , the people need to experience the love of God and repent, Warren asserted. God’s love will change the lives of believers and repentance will cleanse the sins of the believers, he said, and when revival comes, God will use Korea greatly.
The stadium gathering was followed by the concluding day of the Purpose Driven Church Conference at Yoido, where 20,000 ministers and Christians have been trained. Warren is continuing his 13-nation tour with a gathering in Pusan and will head to North Korea on July 17. Monday’s meeting will be in preparation for the first outdoor Christian event in North Korea – the 100th anniversary of the Pyongyang Revival – since 1945, according to Warren ’s spokesman, A. Larry Ross.
