The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill Podcast by Christianity today has been the best podcast to come out in a long time. In it, host, Mike Cosper, profiles the story of Mark Driscoll who rose to prominence as the leader of Mars Hill Church, President of Acts 29 and a #1 New York Times Bestselling author.
The podcast holds nothing back in telling the story - the good and not so good parts of the journey and ultimate fall of Mark and his church.
Listening to this podcast has been a journey for me in itself. I admired Driscoll in my formative years of ministry. He was different, but in the end proved to be the same as so many pastors who have fallen.
From the first ten episodes of the podcast, I have drawn out three important lessons that I believe are important to share with you.
