Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, has stepped down as leader of the global church-planting organization Acts 29 Network and resigned as a council member of The Gospel Coalition to devote more time to his growing congregation, the Christian Post reports. Driscoll will remain on the Acts 29 board of directors and support its new president, pastor Matt Chandler of The Village Church in Texas, as the organization works on restructuring, he said. "With the continued growth of all the ministries in which I'm involved, it's not sustainable for me to keep up with all of them," Driscoll said in a letter posted on TGC's website. "So, this is a season of pruning for me." He clarified in the letter that he was not asked to step down from TGC nor did he have any "disagreement theologically" with other council members.
