It's emerged that controversial ex mega church pastor Mark Driscoll has filed papers registering his new church in Arizona.
Who is Mark Driscoll?

- Named in Preachers Magazines's 25 most influential pastors

Earlier this year he confirmed to supporters that he would be moving to Arizona. He said: "After meeting with many former church leaders for reconciliation and closure in Seattle, our family is in the midst of a new adventure as we have moved to the Phoenix area."
He then spoke about his moves in an interview with Hillsong leader Brian Houston. He said: "We don't know what's next. People have speculated. I don't know. I would like to teach the Bible and love people. What that looks like, I don't know.
"Right now the plan is to seek wise council...to not rush like I did the first time. To wait and learn and not try to prove myself or have my comeback. I am not motivated that way at present."
Papers published on patheos.com show his new church will be called The Trinity Church.
He's been named as a Director along with Randall Taylor and Jimmy Evans.
