Why Daniel Montgomery Left the Sojourn Network in Louisville, Kentucky and How the Shadow of Mark Driscoll Hangs Over Neo-Calvinism

Daniel Montgomery disappeared from Sojourn and to those on the outside many people had questions as to what happened to the Neo-Calvinist leader.

On September 30, 2018 Justin Pearson of Sojourn Fairfax gave a sermon on joyful partnership.

Mahaney’s Sovereign Grace Ministries (SGM).  Dave Harvey came to Sojourn after his long history with SGM. This is a network that is growing in the United States and due to its roots and influence by SGM, also a network of concern.  Continue reading
