Mars Hill Church’s mission is to make disciples and plant churches. We have grown from a small Bible study to one church with thousands of weekly attenders at 14 different locations in four states - Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, and California, with four new locations coming soon in Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; Spokane, WA; and Los Angeles, CA. Pastor Mark Driscoll is one of the leading content creators in the church today, publishing numerous books, articles, and sermon series every year. He generates this material primarily to benefit the people of Mars Hill Church, but offers as much as possible online in order to help the broader community of believers. In 2010, Preaching magazine named him one of the 25 most influential pastors of the past 25 years. His podcast regularly occupies the top spot in iTunes’ Religion & Spirituality category, and his online audience accesses about 15 million of his sermons each year.
