driscoll(RNS) Twenty-one former Mars Hill Church pastors have filed charges against Seattle megachurch founder Mark Driscoll, saying that he has engaged in a pattern of abusive and intimidating conduct and has not changed.

The charges, lodged with the executive elders of the church, include:

  • “Pastor Mark exhibits lack of self-control by his speech and by verbally assaulting others.”
  • “We believe that the way Pastor Mark leads has created a culture of fear instead of a culture of candor and safety. People are often afraid to ask questions or challenge certain ideas.”
  • “Pastor Mark is verbally abusive to people who challenge him, disagree with him, or question him.”
