    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Three staff members of Southern Baptist Convention entities are among eight leaders of a new leadership school being launched by Mars Hill Church, the Seattle, Wash., mega-church co-led by Mark Driscoll.

    Bruce Ware, Gregg Allison and Ed Stetzer will join Driscoll, John Piper and Sam Storms on the faculty of the Resurgence Training Center, a 36-hour graduate program in leadership. The faculty also includes executive director Rick Melson and Bill Clem, a leadership coach with the Acts 29 Network. The new school, according to the Mars Hill website, is intended to develop pastoral leaders for 100 new Mars Hill campuses and 1,000 churches started in partnership with the Acts 29 church planting network, which is exclusively Calvinistic.

    Driscoll, who also is the founder of the Acts 29 church planting network, was the subject of five proposed motions at the SBC annual meeting in June that centered on criticism of his past use of vulgar speech and questionable biblical interpretations and his participation as a speaker in SBC entity programs such as an annual student conference at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. One motion called for the investigation of Stetzer and two other SBC entity employees for their ties to Acts 29.

    I'm silently waiting for someone to accuse Drischoll of false doctrine due to his position on Calvinism.

    Acts 29 is doing what we desperately need Christian church planting organizations to do...winning people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    I've got nothing wrong with it, them, or Pastor Mark. The accusations by some are simply ridiculous.
