Rick Warren is an American Baptist and author born on 28th January 1954 in California, United States. He has written a book titled “Purpose Driven Church” which is highly acclaimed by viewers. He has done much counseling for persons who are struggling with mental illness. Being Pastor and Ministry of Church, his interest in public service has made him realize the purpose of life. Spiritual emptiness is a universal disease so people ask “What is our Purpose?”

“The purpose of your life fits into a much larger, cosmic purpose that God has designed for eternity.”

Rick Warren

He defines five approaches justifying What on Earth Am I here for?

  • Worship
  • Fellowship
  • Discipleship
  • Ministry
  • Evangelism


While speaking on TED talks 2006-

He says, 

  • He believes, we all are here for some reason and we are not accidentally here, we are definitely planned
  • Why I AM here, where are we going, What are our Purpose – these are not religious issues, these are human issues.
  • He believes, every star has a purpose, every animal has a purpose, everyone who exists has the purpose
  • Death is not the end of life….Life continuous to exists
  • Before you were born, God already planned your life. God longs for you to discover the life he uniquely created you to live–here on earth, and forever in eternity.
