In a rather surprising move for a Big Eva pastor, David Platt is stepping down as lead pastor of McLean Bible Church, a church based in northern Virginia that has been at the center of lawsuits, wokeness, and Branch Covidianism. David Platt announced earlier this month that Mike Kelsey would be installed at a business meeting on September 24 to become a lead pastor of the church.
In an internal video, Platt tells his church that Kelsey has been serving MBC for a long time and that he will be the new leader of the church, even over Platt. Platt assures his congregation that this is not a first step towards him leaving MBC (Update: video made private). MBC’s constitution allows for multiple “lead pastors” but Platt will not be the leader of them any more.
Mike Kelsey’s Wokeness
With the news that Mclean Bible Church has appointed Mike Kelsey as their new lead pastor and new primary leader, with David Platt taking a different role, we wanted to post the full context of Kelsey's infamous 'I want to torch all white people' clip for those curious. pic.twitter.com/9ouSSWBiG3— Protestia (@Protestia) September 26, 2023
Perhaps it’s not white people that David Platt is trying to grow in his church.
