As exits from the ministry go, they do not come much bigger than that of Mark Driscoll. Lauded among the ‘New Calvinist’ fraternity as the man who can reach parts of society others can’t, his resignation in October last year from the Mars Hill Church in Seattle made the Huffington Post and Fox News. Mark Driscoll was that big. His demise then was quickly followed by the dissolution of Mars Hill Church which formally ceased to exist on December 31st last year.

He also raises questions concerning the support Driscoll received from other various 'New Calvinist' pastors, as well as reflecting on the poor pastoral treatment that he excercised against some of his own people at Mars Hill, in Seattle.
