On March 29, 2012, Mark Driscoll resigned as President of Acts 29 (and TGC) , the organization he founded. It was taken over by Matt Chandler, who, two years later, removed Driscoll and Mars Hill from membership, citing his “ungodly and disqualifying behavior.” and noting that “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.”
Months after that, Driscoll would resign from Mars Hill altogether and leave the church after refusing to submit to church discipline. He would later go on to start another church which is fast gaining megachurch status, but has also come under criticism after it was revealed that Driscoll has purposefully removed his elder board so that he has no accountability, and in turn has been acting abusively.

Now, the gang is back together again, with Driscoll speaking at a conference that Matt Chandler is headlining in May 11-13, 2022, called the Theos Conference. Hosted by Theos U with the theme of “Spirit and Truth” the conference advertises that there is “No wishy-washy woke BS (Bulls****) per usual” and that it contains “prime Grade-A theology buffet’
Other speakers include Eric Metaxas, who we last saw Sucker-Punching a Passing Antifa Protestor, Landon Macdonald, son of disgraced pastor James Macdonald, and Nathan Finochio, a former pastor at Hillsong NYC, as well as Samuel Sey and Allie Beth Stuckey.
While we were initially surprised to see Samuel Sey there, who we are big fans of, all indication is that he accepted the invitation to speak before he knew the entire speaker list, writing on Twitter.
And honestly, slow clap for that. Sey’s actions are almost unheard of, and we love to see it, and appreciate the brother even more.
There is no word on whether Beth Stuckey will also follow suit.
