Acts 29 Network, a church planting network which was co-founder by Mark Driscoll, has made the decision to remove Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church from membership in the network. According to the network site, Driscoll and the elders of the Mars Hill Church, where Driscoll serves as lead pastor, have been informed of the decision, along with the reasons for the 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. —Source
What does all this mean for Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church? A network that he helped found has removed him and his church, even calling on him to step down and seek help.
For the sake of Christ and the church he purchased with his own blood and is preparing for glory, pastor Mark Driscoll and the Mars Hill Church are in need of our prayers, so that the name of Christ will continue to be honored everywhere.
