Rick Warren Hosts Presidential Candidates

Pastor Rick Warren will host Presidential Candidates Barack Obama and John McCain this Saturday at the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency.

Saturday, August 16, 2008 ● 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. (PST)

At the candidates’ request, this two-hour event will be held in a non-debate format, and will be open to all media. Both candidates also requested that questions be posed exclusively by Warren rather than by a panel or members of the audience. Each candidate will converse separately with Warren for approximately an hour, beginning with Sen. Obama, as determined by a coin toss.

This historic forum will be the only joint event for the two, and the last public appearance for either candidate prior to the two-week hiatus during each party’s national convention.

Due to Secret Service mandate, tickets will be required for the event in the main auditorium, but the program will be broadcast live in multiple venues on the Saddleback campus, as well as on several national broadcast networks and online. It will also be streamed live on www.SaddlebackCivilForum.com. For basic information call (949) 609-8778.
