Man Of Faith

I couldn't trust young and green elders, so I put Jamie Munson in charge.

Mark Driscoll says it was a mistake to place himself under the authority of “new and young and green” elders (link). So in 2007 he made 28 year old Jamie Munson “lead pastor” and tossed out the authority of the elder board, most of whom were older than he was (link).
