Warren has been senior pastor for more than 30 years at the Saddleback Church. He also oversees a global alliance of pastors through the Purpose Driven Network and the Pastors.com online community he established to provide sermons and other practical resources for ministers. He plans to discuss the mission and features of the new Museum of the Bible, located near the Federal Center metro station in Southwest D.C., which is scheduled to open in November.

The museum will make use of “cutting-edge technology to bring the Bible to life” and “will span time, space, and cultures, inviting everyone to engage with the Bible,” according to its website. It is set to feature several permanent sections, as well as space for temporary exhibits, several research labs and libraries, and a rooftop biblical garden and restaurant.

To submit a question for the speaker in advance, put BIBLE in the subject line and email to president@press.org. The deadline for submitting questions in advance is 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
