If you’re a leader in Pastor Mark Driscoll‘s Mars Hill Church network, and you leave the
business ministry for any reason, a clause in your contract prevents you from being a church leader anywhere within a ten mile radius from another Mars Hill church.
Which means you really can’t go anywhere in the Seattle area, as you can see in this picture by @piratechristian:
You know, it’s one thing to include such a clause in a contract when an employee might work for a competitor. But this particular clause is listed in a section of the contract ironically called “Unity of Mission.” Because allowing staffers to work at a nearby church would confuse people about how faithful to Christ they really are, I guess.
We’ll just add this to the growing list of evidence of how Driscoll is really a cult leader disguised as a pastor…
