Table & Well Podcast
HOSTS: Tennison & Ginelle Barry
How do we get so caught up and miss what is actually happening right in front of our faces? How do we miss the people who are being hurt, disowned, and even excommunicated by the organization that we have given our lives to? How do we allow narcissism to run rampant in our churches and community?
Mars Hill Church was founded in 1996 by Mark Driscoll, Lief Moi, and Mike Gunn, and in 2014 the church was dissolved. Between those two dates, this church went on a wild ride. Christianity Today produced a 10 episode podcast called the Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. As we listened to this expose, we felt, in light of our last series on the Half Brained Church, we needed to respond to this podcast. This is not finger-pointing or heaping on, this is our heartfelt conversation about the hurt, disappointment, and trauma that comes from being involved in churches that are being led by narcissist leaders what we can do to heal and ultimately prevent this from happening.
