Pastor Mark Driscoll Apologizes for Missteps
March, 2014
 Seattle pastor Mark Driscoll has written a letter to his congregation to explain recent controversies, including the Real Marriage marketing campaign.
Driscoll has been an influential pastor within Reformed evangelical circles for several years, helping to found a church planting network called Acts 29. His own Mars Hill Church attracts some 14,000 people at 15 locations in five states each Sunday.

In recent months, however, reports have emerged that Driscoll plagiarized some of the material in his books. And earlier this month, World magazine reported that Driscoll hired a firm to buy copies of the book he penned with his wife, Grace, so that it would top the best-seller lists.  (Hellary Clinton and others do this all the time.)

Driscoll also apologized to his church in 2007 for lacking humility.
Driscoll said “my angry-young-prophet days are over.”

August 26, 2014

1. Mark Driscoll Accused of Plagiarism
Janet Mefferd accused Driscoll of not providing proper attribution.

2. Inappropriate Use of Church Funds
In March, World Magazine reported that Mars Hill Church spent at least $210,000 with a firm that sought to get Driscoll’s Real Marriage book on the New York Times best-seller list.

3. Claims of Bullying and Abrasive Management Styles

Driscoll faces charges from 21 former Mars Hill Church Pastors.

On September 19, 2013, I resigned my membership and Eldership, because I have serious questions about the ministry and leadership philosophy/practices of the Executive Elders of MHC, no longer trust them and, therefore, cannot submit to their authority.
Mark Driscoll’s sin(s) (for many of us who know him and have worked with him) are about clear violations of I Timothy 3, Titus 1 and I Peter 5.

1.  Not being self-controlled and disciplined
2.  Being domineering
3.  Being verbally violent
4.  Being arrogant
5.  Being quick-tempered

4. Driscoll Steps Down Making Room for Review
In early August Acts 29, the church planting organization Driscoll co-founded, issued a statement announcing the removal of the controversial pastor and Mars Hill Church from its membership.

On Sunday, August 24, Driscoll stept aside allowing for a review of the circumstances.

5. Common Thread Among Christian Leaders

Many within Christian organizations have experienced the pain and destruction of a fallen leader. Whether it is from a moral failure, abuse of power or financial issues, leaders contend there is a common thread among those who fall from grace.

Mars Hill Pastors' Letter To Mark Driscoll Blasts Former Church Leader For Foul Play
August 28, 2014
A letter from nine Mars Hill Church pastors to their fellow elders offers the most trenchant criticism yet of controversial megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll, who recently stepped down for at least six weeks amid a series of accusations.

The pastors did not mince words in their lengthy Aug. 22 letter concerning Driscoll, who has been caught up in allegations that include plagiarism, inappropriate use of church funds and abuse of power:

* [W]e direct that he steps down from ministry, submitting himself under the authority of the elders of the church, who will oversee the details of his restoration plan.
* He must step down not only from the pulpit, but from all aspects of ministry and leadership.
* He will continue to receive his salary so long as he continues to cooperate with the restoration plan set before him by the elders of Mars Hill Church.

The letter was posted within a Mars Hill online network and provided to Warren Throckmorton, a Grove City College psychology professor who has been blogging updates about Mars Hill.

The 4,000-word letter suggests there were insufficient layers of accountability at Mars Hill, a congregation of an estimated 14,000 people at 15 locations in five states, and that power was consolidated at the top with Driscoll given free rein to do what he wanted.

The pastors’ letter ends by quoting a sermon from Driscoll from 2006.
“I just shudder to say this, but if I should ever say or do anything that the elders would need to fire me, do not be loyal to me. Be loyal to Jesus; be loyal to your elders. Be loyal to the pastors in your church.”

Seattle megachurch dissolves after founder resigns
31 Oct 2014  
Two weeks after lead Mars Hill Church pastor Mark Driscoll resigned amid questions about his leadership, the church announced it was dissolving.  The existing Mars Hill Church organization will be dissolved.

Mark Driscoll's resignation came after a group of church elders recently ended an investigation into the charges.  The church said it found Driscoll had a domineering style with a quick temper and harsh speech, but it noted he was never charged with immorality or heresy.

ALL true and Godly and scripturally sound SALVATION churches will need to go underground.  ALL we have known is about to change - for the worse.
501c3 churches will not be allowed to preach the FULL GOSPEL.
I feel half sad - but half joyful - over Mars Hill dissolving.

You have Mark Driscoll in the apostate  /  wolves thread.
Is Mark a wolf?

BA didnt you LIKE Driscoll?

Yes, this was pretty much the beginning of the end for him with this scandal.

With that being said - don't be fooled by all of this - what the Illuminati minions will craftily do is make a gigantic example of one guy, so that all of the distractions are on HIM(and pretty much away from other wolves like Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, etc).

Does anyone really think Warren, Hybels, McLaren, and the rest of these Emergent Church leaders/wolves genuinely write their own books with honestly? With their INCREDIBLY busy schedules? I highly doubt it - and from what I've read too - pretty much all of them like Hal Lindsey and Jerry Falwell included have ghost writers who do all of the work for them(I believe a sodomite ghost-wrote one of Falwell's books).

Ultimately, someone else will likely replace Driscoll and become popular.

This is a big difference b/w a true born again believer, and a false convert/teacher - the former will get chastening from the LORD if they get out of his will, but the latter is no different than the heathen world.

Driscoll is definitely not a saved man.

Mark Driscoll accused of racketeering at Mars Hill Church
2/29/16

Two former Mars Hill Church leaders, including pastor Mark Driscoll, are hit with a racketeering lawsuit, accusing them of fraudulently using thousands if not millions of donor money.

Mark Driscoll may have moved on to a new city and a new church, but he faces the sharpest demand yet to account for his actions at Mars Hill Church.

On Monday, four former Mars Hill members filed a civil racketeering lawsuit against Driscoll, charging that the once swaggering pastor fraudulently used thousands if not millions of dollars raised by the church, which once boasted 15 branches in five states with 13,000 visitors on Sundays.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for Western Washington, also names former Mars Hill executive elder John Sutton Turner as a defendant.

A 42-page complaint accuses the two men of raising money for specific purposes and then using the money for other things, including a “scam” designed to make Driscoll a best-selling author.

Mark Driscoll Officially Launches New Church in Arizona


8/8/16

Controversial megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll has officially launched a new church in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Patheos.com blogger Warren Throckmorton reports that Driscoll’s new church, The Trinity Church, is just outside of Phoenix.

Although Driscoll had conducted an Easter service at the church, last Sunday, August 7, marked the official launch of the church.

Driscoll moved to Arizona to plant the church after he was forced to resign from his position as senior pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle. Driscoll had been accused of plagiarism, abuse of power, and racketeering.

Throckmorton reports that, although Driscoll had initially agreed to a plan of restoration at Mars Hill, he later alleged that a trap had been set for him and that God wanted him to plant a church elsewhere.

There were reportedly 162 cars in The Trinity Church’s parking lot for the church’s first service at 9 a.m. and 170 cars there for the church’s second service at 10:45 a.m.

Churchgoers were not the only people present, however.

A reporter from Seattle was on the seen, and said that he had asked to speak with Driscoll but was denied.

There was also a protester who held a sign that accused Driscoll of being power-hungry.
