can't remember which of Mark Driscoll's LLCs in WA has an expiration date at the end of this month?

Real Marriage: the truth about sex, friendship and life together
Mark and Grace Driscoll
Thomas Nelson
copyright (c) 2012 by On Mission, LLC
ISBN 978-1-4041-8352-0

There's the book about which some controversy swirled over not just Result Source but why Mark and Grace Driscoll didn't give a nod to Dan Allender's work (and that of, well, a few other people) in the first print edition of the book.  That editors went back and fixed the various lapses could seem to confirm that the initial problem of the Driscoll's failing to acknowledge Dan Allender's work even once was accurately assessed.

Now, the book is copyrighted to On Mission, LLC, one of a few LLCs associated with Mark Driscoll.  Let's look up the stuff about that again, shall we?

So the members are Lasting Legacy LLC and OMCRU Investments LLC.  It didn't always used to be that way, did it?

See, back when Wenatchee The Hatchet discussed On Mission on December 2, 2013 the details of the UBI looked more like this:

Then the line-up of members began to look a little more corporate by January 2014

That there was even a side company at all to manage the royalties and intellectual property of Mark Driscoll flew in the face of his 2009 sermon from the 1 & 2 Peter series where he said he didn't start a side company.

So, at the end of this month one of the LLCs connected to the ownership of the copyright of Real Marriage expires.

Let's bear in mind that Sutton Turner signed the Result Source contract on behalf of Mars Hill but the invoice was sent to Mark Driscoll as an individual care of Mars Hill. Even though an entire sermon series at Mars Hill was built upon the foundation of Real Marriage and Sutton Turner signed the contract, it was to promote a book that was copyrighted to Mark Driscoll by way of an LLC that stopped featuring Driscoll as a direct member some time after the LLC was created, to be replaced with membership via mediation of membership in other LLCs. 

By the way, according Colorado records On Mission LLC has moved its address but not changed its agent

look for doc#
20141776224
For ID# 20111058965

ON MISSION LLC
5550 TECH CENTER DRIVE STE 303
COLORADO SPRINGS CO 80919

That change was effective 12/23/2014

We've noted some other corporate changes earlier this year
http://wenatcheethehatchet.blogspot.com/2014/01/wheres-on-mission-llc-located-these.html

But since one of the LLCs will be expiring in, oh, just a few days, it's worth revisiting the topic again.
