Mars Hill Church (“Mars Hill”) owns and/or maintains the following websites:
These websites are collectively referred to as the “Site”.
Under no circumstances can you use any content on the Site for commercial advantage or private monetary compensation. This means you can’t sell our content and you can’t use it to market or advertise anything you are selling.
You may use and share, through social media websites, sermons, articles, blogs, and other material purposely made available by Mars Hill for downloading from the Site, as long as you (1) do not remove any proprietary notice language included on, or incorporated into, the material, (2) use the material only for your personal, non-commercial informational purpose and, except to share through social media websites (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc. with the exception of YouTube and other video sharing sites.), do not copy or post the material on any networked computer or broadcast it in any media, (3) make no cuts or modifications to any material or make any derivative works from any materials and (4) not make any additional representations or warranties relating to the material. Sermons and other videos made available by Mars Hill may not be downloaded and posted to YouTube, Vimeo, or other video sharing sites, even if posted in their entirety.
We want to be generous with our content and ensure we are not allowing Pastor Mark to be the de facto pastor of an unhealthy or heretical church by preaching every Sunday. So, if you want to use Pastor Mark's sermon videos every, or nearly every Sunday, then the answer is “No.” For that to occur your church would need to become a Mars Hill church, and we are glad to consider that. If upon occasion your church or class wants to show one of Pastor Mark's sermons in their entirety without any editing, you can if you (i) are an Acts 29 Church; (ii) are a Mars Hill Campaign church or (iii) get approval from Mars Hill Church.
Yes. If you don’t cite him, you are plagiarizing. If you use content from one of Pastor Mark’s sermons or from one of his books, you need to attribute the content (whether it is a quote or paraphrase) to Pastor Mark. Also, even though we make transcripts available of our sermons, this does not mean you can take the transcript and deliver the sermon as though it is your own. This too is plagiarism.
The same answer applies to your use of sermon content from any other pastors and any of our blog posts.
No. You are not allowed to edit any of the content found on the Site. This includes sermons and blogs. If we have released a clip of a sermon, you can use that clip.
We currently translate all our sermons into Spanish. We are in the process of launching Mars Hill Global through which we will translate and distribute much of the content you find on the Site into multiple foreign languages. If you have any translation requests, please send them to email@example.com.
You are free to include a link on your blog to the Site on which the blog post you are interested in appears. You cannot cut and paste the blog post on your blog.
If you’re a member of the media, our PR coordinator would be happy to help you. Please visit our online pressroom for more information. Extensive information about Pastor Mark’s experience, background, and viewpoints is also available online and expressed throughout his books, website, and sermons.
Due to high demand, Pastor Mark cannot fulfill requests for personal appointments, advice, etc. If you’d like his opinion on a specific matter, we recommend using the “Search” feature in our comprehensive Media Library. For those who attend Mars Hill Church, other pastors and Community Groups are great sources of information. Please contact your church if you need help.
Please submit a speaking request form.
We receive a large number of requests from pastors and other church leaders who would like to visit Mars Hill Church and interact with staff, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate everyone.

Whom do I talk to? Thank you for the offer, but we are not looking for event ideas.
In order to respect the privacy, the security, and the worship of our congregants, during church events we do not facilitate third party solicitation of any kind on Mars Hill premises.
While Mars Hill Church does not grant sponsorship or endorsement requests, you’re welcome to discuss your need with your Community Group and/or church pastor.
One of our partner ministries is the Acts 29 Church Planting Network. All of the churches in this network have a theology and ministry philosophy that is similar to Mars Hill. If you’re looking for a good church, the Acts 29 website is a great place to start.
