Willow Creek Elders and Pastor Heather Larson Resign over Bill Hybels
Lead pastor Heather Larson announced that she was resigning immediately. The church’s elder board announced that its members would also step down in an orderly fashion by the end of 2018.

Steve Carter, the church’s lead teaching pastor, had already resigned on Sunday, saying he could no longer continue at the church in “good conscience.”

At tonight’s Willow family meeting, elder Missy Rasmussen said she and other church leaders had been blinded by their faith in their founding pastor and had failed to hold Hybels accountable.

“We trusted Bill, and this clouded our judgment,” she said. ...

..challenging evangelistic preaching..
Romans 10:8-13 KJV
(8)  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
(9)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
(10)  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
(11)  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
(12)  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
(13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

5). All entertainment and seeker sensitive methods, Emergent Church type doctrines, and neo-evangelical compromise should be thrown out of the church immediately.

6). The fallen pastor should not just allowed to get away with it in retirement, but should be formally excommunicated.

That is what all churches in this situation should do as share minimum.

1). It may well be better if such a vast church actually split up into much smaller more local and independent churches all with their own pastors, elders, deacons and members.

2). To be truly scriptural all women should be removed from any kind of leadership as pastors, elders or deacons, though women can be used in a variety of other ways, and are useful for safeguarding purposes for ministry to little children and women, though should be responsible to the male eldership.

3). The eldership should be truly plural, and pastors, who, of course are also elders should be fully responsible and accountable to the other elders.

4). All churches should return to a good solid diet of solid and doctrinal consecutive expository preaching of the Word of God, combined with challenging evangelistic preaching, and reverent worship, without pandering to the world.

Lead Pastor where do you see that in the scriptures, this is nothing more that Man elevating himself above others

This was a terrible tragedy waiting to happen.

It was good that the two new senior pastors and the whole board of elders resigned.

The remedy for Willow Creek, which I do not think they will take, will involve a number of vital steps, but apart from new elders and new senior pastors I fear little else will be done!!!

When you have a woman as so called pastor, you’re on the wrong path.

These elders disagreed with some of the changes made by Driscoll. So he fired them. That's right. He fired the elders who were supposed to provide checks and balances. These elders had no authority whatsoever within this system. Also, all the other pastors and elders kept their mouths shut.

As much as I dislike using a woman as an authority, she quoted from enough men and enough men commented on her article that I decided to put it out anyway.

I can't think of anything good to say about Willow Creek, or any other churches which followed their teaching.
