On Tuesday, February 21, the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee announced that Saddleback Church was no longer "in friendly cooperation" with the denomination and had been disfellowshipped.
Famously founded by Rick Warren, Saddleback had long been the largest church in the SBC. Nevertheless, they were removed from the denomination because they have ordained women on their staff to the title of "pastor," one of whom is in the regular weekend service preaching rotation.
