‘The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill’ Podcast is Here
A new podcast has been released which details the rise and fall of Mars Driscoll and the Mars Hill empire. Released by Christianity Today and hosted by Mike Cosper- the founder of Harbor Media and Director of podcasting for Christianity Today- this podcast covers the period from their founding in 1996 Seattle, where the novelty of the ‘cussing pastor’ had taken Christendom by storm, to their public implosion and now current status where history seems to be repeating itself.
The podcast draws upon “hundreds of hours of interviews with people who were part of Mars Hill. Some are serving in ministry or volunteering in churches. Some have migrated into other traditions. And some have left the faith altogether.”
Friom their onesheet description:
This podcast takes you inside the story of Mars Hill Church in Seattle – from its founding as part of one of the largest church planting movements in American history to its very public dissolution—and the aftermath that followed. You’ll hear from people who lived this story, experiencing the triumphs and losses of Mars Hill, knowing it as both an amazing, life-transforming work of God and as a dangerous, abusive environment. The issues that plague Mars Hill and its founder, Mark Driscoll — dangers like money, celebrity, youth, scandal, and power—aren’t unique, and only by looking closely at what happened in Seattle will we be able to see ourselves”

Driscoll is against feminism, LGBTQ++ and BLM. He deserves cancellation.
