|Historical Timeline Of
The Quail Springs Church of Christ
Mark Henderson resigned as preacher in March of 2009 because of a leadership conflict with the elders. Several families left the congregation. The problem was not related to the introduction of instrumental music.
According to a newspaper article in the Oklahoman on April 25, 2010, the rift was patched up through outside mediation. In a reconciliatory gathering on April 11, 2010 both sides admitted fault. The newspaper states that "the elders admitted to holding secret meetings without Henderson and making 'exaggerated' and 'inaccurate' statements about him in a public church meeting before his departure. In turn, Henderson admitted that he had been very critical of the elders and tried to inhabit a parallel universe in which he didnít have to deal with them."
