I just finished reading a well written article in Christianity Today about Mark Driscoll, Pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle. The title of the piece was pointedly about how CONTROVERSIAL many people find Mr. Driscoll.

Read the article and consider what he is doing that is so radical. I admit I can't find much that is so different from the Bible.
He is making quite a splash in Seattle, Washington, one of the hardest places in America to witness to unbelievers and disciple believers. His congregation has some 6,000 members and is still going and growing. The members who were interviewed seem turned on the the Lord but many people are turned off by Mr. Driscoll's manner. Is that good or bad?
Leading a church is difficult. In fact, it may be the toughest job in America. Every Pastor certainly needs God's anointing and direction. Read the article and see what you think about the controversial thought leader Mark Driscoll.
