Notice the teachers they have at this thing along with the indirect focus on the "works" gospel. Check out the titles of the lectures too.
"We Seek Influence for Jesus"--Rick Warren
"We Preach Jesus"--Greg Laurie
"We Influence Culture for Jesus"--Lecrae
"We're Strong Through Jesus"-Nick Vujicic
"We Serve the City for Jesus"--Miles McPherson
"We Resource for Jesus"--James McDonald
"We Innovate for Jesus"--Craig Groeschel
"We're Changed for Jesus"--Mark Driscoll
One can notice the Dominionist, Emergent strain right in the lecture titles. Notice the corporate-speak too that influences Rick Warren's Drucker emphasis.
Some time ago, this blog and others warned about the links between Chuck Smith, Rick Warren and Greg Laurie, focusing on that time they all appeared at a Harvest Festival together:
"Calvary Chapel and Rick Warren"
Many of you probably will remember this picture:
Even though endless Calvary Chapel bible conferences and related teachers will warn against Rick Warren and his false teachings, or the Calvary Chapel leaders will claim they do not support his teachings, such as in the 2006 controversy regarding the removal of Rick Warren's writings from their churches, Rick Warren and top members of Calvary Chapel have worked together. Consider the endless contradictions Check this article out:
"Greg Laurie Connects Purpose Driven to a Move of God – Gives Financial Support"
"On May 6th, Greg Laurie, pastor of mega-church Harvest Christian Fellowship wrote a letter to pastors and church leaders in the New York region, announcing his Harvest Crusade 2008 in New York City on October 19th. This letter to pastors and leaders is causing confusion among some because of its content, and this Lighthouse Trails report will examine this issue.
Greg Laurie is best known as a Calvary Chapel pastor. His church is listed on the Calvary Chapel website, and Laurie often speaks at Calvary Chapel functions. And it is Laurie’s connection with Calvary Chapel that presents a great dilemma.
Two years ago, in May of 2006, Calvary Chapel issued a “Parson to Parson” letter, in which a statement was made against the emerging church and contemplative spirituality. The following month, at the 2006 Senior Pastor’s Conference, Calvary Chapel founder and pastor, Chuck Smith, told the senior pastors that Calvary Chapel as a whole was rejecting various movements and practices that have been taking place within the Christian church at large as well as in some Calvary Chapel churches. According to a number of pastors in attendance, who afterwards spoke with Lighthouse Trails, Smith asked that those Calvary Chapel pastors who were going in the direction of the emerging church would no longer call themselves Calvary Chapel churches. One week later, Calvary Chapel instructed its distribution center to immediately remove all of Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life books from its center. The statement read: “The teaching and positions of Rick Warren have come into conflict with us at Calvary Chapel. Pastor Chuck has directed us to discontinue this product effective immediately.”
Let's remember Greg Laurie is a top Calvary Chapel preacher with Chuck Smith's support.

Does this Calvary Chapel pastor who wrote against Warren's teachings in 2008 know what his own leadership has been up to lately?
