Tucked away in something that may have been distributed to attenders and members of Mars Hill could be something short like this:
End of Fiscal Year 2014
Thank you for your faithfulness! Fiscal year 2014 ended on June 30th and we are excited to report that we beat budget for the year! Thank you to each person in our Mars Hill family across our 15 locations and our Global Family across the world.
No surprise there. Whatever the trying season has been for MH lately it has probably had more to do with the plagiarism scandal, the scandal about the use of Result Source, the anxiety and discontent that erupted in volatile employment changes when Sutton Turner joined the Mars Hill executive team in 2011, and perhaps the controversy and questions associated with how much Mars Hill executive leadership did or didn't know about the eviction in Orange County before it happened. Driscoll claimed to not have any idea what the reason for the eviction of Orange County could have been and mentioned retaining legal counsel ... for those who saw the long-since-scrubbed video.
Legal counsel has not always been in the best interest of Mars Hill from a PR standpoint, though, since it was a Stokes & Lawrence letter that was arguably responsible for the trademark/logo kerfuffle in late 2011 while Mars Hill was nailing down the final details of promoting Real Marriage with help from Result Source.
What Mars Hill leadership may or may not fully appreciate is that the controversies in this recent trying season in at least one case literally has the signature of an executive elder all over it. If Mars Hill wants to move forward perhaps they could follow the advice (but not necessarily the example of pastor Jamie Munson "own it and move on". Or perhaps they could follow the "cut your losses" path.
... or is Jamie Munson actually no longer a pastor at Mars Hill these days compared to the start of June 2014?
