In April 2018, you were described as a "member of a board of advisers that was overseeing Mars Hill, occupies the role of 'wise counsel' to Trinity" (Driscoll's new church).

"Larry Osborne...member of a board of advisers that was overseeing Mars Hill, occupies the role of 'wise counsel” to Trinity.'" Trinity - the church Mark Driscoll founded after he fled church discipline and abandoned his church. Don't tell me about doing the right thing Larry.

And in Oct 2018, you endorsed his new book:

For two hours, I sat with @LarryOsborne directly on my left and @PastorMark next to him. I listened as they riffed about leadership and ministry.

Between the spring of 2012 and 2015, you were on the "Board of Advisors and Accountability" for Mars Hill

and heard concerns in the spring and summer of 2013,

Paul Tripp and James MacDonald left the Board in July and August 2014. (investyourgifts.com/resultsource2/) (wthrockmorton.com/2014/03/07/mar…) Mark Driscoll resigned Oct 15, 2014. The Board of Overseers you sat on (Jon Phelps, Larry Osborne, Michael Van Skaik, and Matt Rogers) did not think he should resign. (The Board of Elders did). Matt Rogers had led the investigation. (wthrockmorton.com/2014/12/16/mar…) (wthrockmorton.com/2014/10/19/mar…) The Board of Overseers wrote: "We concluded that Pastor Mark has, at times, been guilty of arrogance, responding to conflict with a quick temper and harsh speech, and leading the staff and elders in a domineering manner . . . . . . While we believe Mark needs to continue to address these areas in his life, we do not believe him to be disqualified from pastoral ministry.
Pastor Mark has never been charged with any immorality, illegality or heresy . . . . . . Most of the charges involved attitudes and behaviors reflected by a domineering style of leadership.
We found some of the accusations against Pastor Mark to be altogether unfair or untrue." (wthrockmorton.com/2014/10/15/mar…)

You were still on the Board of Advisors and Accountability when Mars Hill was dissolved in March 2015. (wthrockmorton.com/2015/03/26/who…) I see that you are by yourself trying to help your old friend Mark Driscoll who has helped you in the past. I also see that you are quite conspicuously the only one who does not see his faults. Acts 29, the Board of Elders, Paul Tripp, James MacDonald, all distanced themselves. So, that is why there will be backlash that you have invited Mark Driscoll to your October 2020 Sticky Teams conference. People remember his anonymous crude comments in 2000,
misallocation of funds from missions in 2012-2014, (christianitytoday.com/news/2014/augu…) (wthrockmorton.com/tag/mars-hill-…) his making more than a million dollars a year in 2014 and 2015,
and non-disclosure agreements

and non-compete clauses to bully people from speaking out, (wthrockmorton.com/2017/10/20/dem…) (wthrockmorton.com/2014/03/09/a-f…) (wthrockmorton.com/2014/05/28/if-…) his plagiarism,

his spending $210,000 in 2011 and 2012 of church funds on his own book to make the best-seller list, (religionnews.com/2013/12/18/mar…) (world.wng.org/2014/03/unreal…) and his saying infidelity on the part of husbands may be because wives are not taking care of their appearance, (huffpost.com/entry/whos-to-…) and the testimony of 21 former elders at Mars Hill. (wthrockmorton.com/2014/08/21/for…) Mark Driscoll had a history of bullying, unethical, foolish behavior as a pastor over 20 years. He should find another job besides being a pastor. If he chooses to put up a website and rent a building, then you should not promote it by having him to your conference.

I have the contacted the marketing department of Bethel University. Mark Driscoll's crass chat room words, routine degradation of women, plagiarism, misdirection of funds, and refusal of accountability is the antithesis of what Bethel University and Bethel Seminary are about.
