Mark Driscoll was the founding Pastor at Mars Hill Church based in Seattle Washington, he resigned his post yesterday. Beyond Mars Hill he was the founder of the popular Blog Resergence.org and co-founder of the highly successful church planting network Acts 29 Network. In 2010, Preaching magazine named him one of the 25 most influential pastors of the past 25 years. His sermon podcast regularly occupies the top spot in iTunes’s Religion & Spirituality category.1
He is known for his strict bible application that is odds with contemporary culture (especial the liberal culture of the Upper Northwest where his ministry is based). In the past several months the already controversial Pastor has come under fire because of his historical forceful and brash style of church leadership, a book promotion controversy, plagiarism accusations and for crude comments made in an online form (under and alias).
