Barack Obama and George W. Bush both have paid visits in recent years to Lake Forest's Saddleback Church, to speak to one of the largest and most influential Christian congregations in the world. Officially affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, Pastor Rick Warren's "Purpose-Driven" message of evangelical Christianity has helped win the church a worldwide following of more than 30,000 people. The 120-acre Lake Forest campus is the church's nerve center and boasts a number of permanent worship "tents," a large auditorium, offices, a cafe and a recently built youth ministry mecca called The Refinery—complete with an outdoor beach volleyball court.
