Some adjustments to the where and what of On Mission, LLC, owner of the copyright in Mark & Grace Driscoll's Real Marriage

Back on December 2, 2013 Wenatchee The Hatchet presented what was available about On Mission, LLC.

UBI Number603258287
CategoryLLC

Registered Agent Information

Register agent was the usual CT Corporation and then governing persons were listed as follows:
Governing Persons
TitleNameAddress
ManagerDRISCOLL, MARK1411 NW 50TH ST
SEATTLE, WA 98107
ManagerDRISCOLL, MARK1411 NW 50TH ST
SEATTLE, WA 98107

Clearly we wouldn't be bringing that up unless the most recent listing was actually different.  Mark Driscoll is no longer listed amongst Governing Persons in any direct way.

So that's all the same stuff, more or less.  Here's what looks different:


Governing Persons
TitleNameAddress

EDMONDS , WA 98026
MemberLASTING LEGACY LLC , 23632 HWY 99 STE F441
EDMONDS , WA 98026

So now both OMCRU Investments LLC and Lasting Legacy LLC are listed at 23632 Hwy 99 Ste F441 in Edmonds, WA 98026.

Let's reconsult the listing for Lasting Legacy LLC now.

Well, that looks different.  So Lasting Legacy is possibly in one or both of two different addresses in Edmonds.  Lasting Legacy also became the LLC that got listed among governing persons for On Mission, LLC.  Interesting, though likely coincidental, that the governing persons of On Mission, LLC, which owns the copyright for Real Marriage, no longer includes Mark Driscoll in any direct way, particularly in light of news from Warren Throckmorton that Thomas Nelson has said it is in conversation with Mark Driscoll about rectifying citation errors in the bestseller, which has included adding acknowledgment to Justin and Lindsey Holcomb's work as well as acknowledging the existence and work of Dan Allender.

And then there's OMCRU Investments, LLC

Note the text in blue, eh?  Well, OMCRU Investments, LLC ["probably" short for On Mission Charitable Revocable Unitrust?] also used to look something more like this:
OMCRU INVESTMENTS, LLC
http://www.sos.wa.gov/corps/search_detail.aspx?ubi=603258278

For governing persons the title, name and address are as follows:
Manager
DRISCOLL, MARK
1411 NW 50TH ST
SEATTLE, WA 98107


and for those who'd like to read the post in which this was documented feel free to visit over here.   This address adjustment was recently brought to the attention of Wenatchee The Hatchet along with some other details that won't make their way into a post until a few details can be investigated further. 

Meanwhile, for sake of review:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/warrenthrockmorton/2014/01/27/spokesperson-thomas-nelson-working-with-driscolls-to-address-real-marriage-citation-issues/

While there could be a few things said about that hand-shaking anecdote we're not going to get into that quite so much, at least for now.  It's too easy, for one thing, and for another the shifting of who or what is what governing person at On Mission, LLC is more interesting as Thomas Nelson has announced that they'll be working with the Driscolls to address the citation issues in Real Marriage
