David Platt’s Church Sued Again by Members Seeking New Leadership

McLean leaders, the statement continues, are “grieved that our brothers and sisters are still choosing to file lawsuits rather than meet with us [and] our prayer is that we are soon nearing a day where this kind of thing is behind us for good.”

In a 2021 letter to the church’s board chairman, SBC executive C. Ashley Clayton clarified McLean’s “relationship status” with the denomination. The SBC considers McLean a “partnering” church, not a “member” church, he wrote, adding that McLean has an SBC ID number “purely for the sake of accounting purposes as [McLean] partners together with SBC entities on mission.”
