Mars Hill and Mark Driscoll’s Removal from the Acts 29 Network

Post on Acts29Network.org:

August 8, 2014
A Message from the Board of Acts 29 concerning Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church

It is with deep sorrow that the Acts 29 Network announces its decision to remove Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church from membership in the network. Mark and the Elders of Mars Hill have been informed of the decision, along with the reasons for removal. It is our conviction that the nature of the accusations against Mark, most of which have been confirmed by him, make it untenable and unhelpful to keep Mark and Mars Hill in our network. In taking this action, our prayer is that it will encourage the leadership of Mars Hill to respond in a distinctive and godly manner so that the name of Christ will not continue to be dishonored.

Dan Richardson: I owe so much of my early growth to their ministry so this is certainly painful to read. I pray that there be true repentance practiced and that Christ might be glorified through it. We should take no pleasure in what is going on at MH. These are real people, with real hurts caused by real sin.

@mygospelfriends Catching up on podcast.  Maybe our church is different, but amazing things are happening with our two different services. Both our “contemporary” and “traditional” services are filled with multi-generational families.  We may be an outlier tho. I believe the secret is in our Bible study times.  We have studies for all ages during both service times.

@mygospelfriends Just started listening to the podcast & it’s freakin awesome. Thanks for putting this together guys.

We recently asked the Twittersphere what topics would you like to hear us cover:

Rob Johnson (@RobJohnson90) says (Longer Ending of Mark; Be interested in your thoughts on it. Mark 16:9-20.

Dominick (@aDefeatedVictor) Hebrews 6:1, He says There seems to be a tension of what Hebrews 6:1 means. Whether it is speaking about what came before Christ or basic teachings of Christ.
