Regular Attender

What Mars Hill location(s) did you attend?


What years were you involved / attending?

2010, 2011

How did you first hear about Mars Hill?

Mark was coming to town to speak at City on a Hill in downtown - which was becoming a MH.

What was the circumstance of your first time attending Mars HIll?

Me and a friend went to the evening service where Mark spoke about taking over the ABQ church.

What were your first impressions?

It was energetic, young, packed.

Why was Mars Hill your church home?

It had a mission.

What about your time at Mars Hill has had a positive impact on you?


What about your time at Mars Hill has had a negative impact on you?

I got to relive the Discipleship Movement from the 70's.  I was in seminary at the time and after going through a session of having false accusations thrown at me - it took a few months to get past it... and grades suffered.

What would you like to have changed about Mars Hill?

Learned earlier about the reality of the priesthood of every believer and run from one-man magnets.

Which describes you?

I left Mars Hill prior to closure.

Please describe why you left Mars Hill and what that experience was like.

I left because I rebuked their false accusations and would not enter their "restoration" process.  I was booted from "The City" and told that no one there would talk with me, and they would ensure that other churches in the area would know how I left.

How would you describe the reason for Mars Hill's closure to an outsider.

It needs no explanation - they get it more than those that were in it.

What's changed for you since your time at Mars Hill came to an end?

The Church is not the building, a group of leaders, or a name.  It is Christians living their life before Christ - Acts talks of church in the home and church in the city... that's really it.

Please write anything else you'd like to add.
