Mark Driscoll

Birthdate: 11. October 1970

Mark A. Driscoll is an American evangelical Christian pastor and author who serves as Senior & Founding Pastor of The Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona.In 1996, Driscoll co-founded Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington. As of March 2014, Mars Hill Church had 14,000 members in five states and fifteen locations. He also founded The Resurgence and co-founded other parachurch organizations, including Acts 29 Network, Churches Helping Churches, and The Gospel Coalition. He has written for the "Faith and Values" section of the Seattle Times, OnFaith, and the Fox News website. Driscoll has also authored a number of popular Christian books.

Driscoll was described as "an evangelical bad boy, a gifted orator and [a] charismatic leader", and as "hip yet hard-line". He is known for promoting "culturally relevant" yet theologically conservative Christianity. He favors "vintage" aesthetics and a "down to earth", yet at times "aggressive", preaching style. Controversy has often surrounded his complementarian view of gender roles, Calvinist theology, perceived misogyny, plagiarism accusations, and the culture of fear that allegedly once supported his ministerial authority.In the summer of 2014, he faced public criticism and formal complaints from Mars Hill staff members and congregants due to his perceived abusive behavior. In August 2014, the Board of Acts 29 Network removed him from its membership and urged him to step down from ministry. On October 14, 2014, Driscoll resigned from Mars Hill Church. Within three months of Driscoll's resignation, Mars Hill Church was dissolved, with individual congregations becoming independent, merging with other churches, or disbanding.On February 1, 2016, Driscoll opened The Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Quotes Mark Driscoll

„You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people“

—  Mark Driscoll

Jesus Took Our Wrath (Propitiation) http://www.marshillchurch.org/audio/Atonement8_Driscoll_112005_16k.mp3, Sermon preached November 6, 2005 at Mars Hill Church.
Context: You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people. That is a lie... God looks down and says 'I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you,' and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says 'Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you.' This is a miracle.

„If you really want to be a rebel get a job, cut your grass, read your bible, and shut up. Because no one is doing that.“

„I'll preach anywhere. If it's a round trip ticket to preach in hell, I'll take it—as long as it's round trip.“
