After much prayer and wise pastoral and professional counsel, the Driscolls believed and agreed that a move to Phoenix was the Lord’s will. Pastor Mark and Grace have had a growing burden for Phoenix and, even though ministry options emerged from other cities, their interest in Phoenix was greatest.
Prior to moving, the Driscolls spent months scouting the valley and meeting with dozens of local pastors who were warm and welcoming.
Since moving to Phoenix, Pastor Mark and Grace have deepened their love of the city, grown their vision to serve its people, and are glad to call Phoenix home.
Nothing about God telling Driscoll he was released from ministry at Mars Hill? That was the story on the road throughout 2015, after all. If you want to review the six different accounts of how and why Mark Driscoll resigned from Mars Hill we've got them compiled here at Wenatchee The Hatchet:
The most frequently asked question that seems to come up that isn't being addressed at all at the FAQ is how Mark Driscoll has managed to turn his back so blithely in the new web presence on the thing he spent his 18 earlier years in ministry telling everybody who would listen, but especially young guys, to live your life toward, legacy. For a guy whose ministry could be summed up as focusing on getting guys to live in terms of legacy Mark Driscoll sure doesn't seem to be in any hurry to mention the legacy of his 18 years in ministry at Mars Hill these days. Way to lead by example there.
