Driscoll in the news again…this time on Nightline.

No seven minute video can do justice to Mark Driscoll and his ministry.  As a man and as a pastor, he is far too complex.  And the style and manner he employs to reach a very specific demographic with the message of Jesus Christ, is too easily misunderstood to be fully explained in what amounts to being a hit and run segment on a television news magazine produced by the mainstream media.  While you might be able to discern some of the agendas that ABC may have had in their piece on Driscoll, their report on Nightline is not a totally unfair representation of the man, his church and his theology.

P.S.:  The line at the end of the video about bringing a church like Mars Hill to your neighborhood is probably a veiled reference to the Acts 29 Network of church planters that does NOT intend to drop a Mars Hill look-alike in every neighborhood, but rather to facilitate new church growth that meets the individual needs of a community through resourses, education and support.
