A day after the Hillsong East Coast Church announced it had fired Pastor Lentz for “leadership problems and a breach of trust, plus the recent revelation of moral failures,” Carl revealed. That failure includes infidelity.
Lentz to speak … “I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and responsible for it. This failure was caused by me, only me and myself. take full responsibility for your actions. “
The pastor said he was deeply sorry, admitted he had not lived up to the standards of a church leader and understood that change was needed because of his actions.
Lentz said he is currently on a journey to rebuild his relationship and trust with his wife, Laura, and their kids … and shared a family photo at a grand event.
Of course Lentz is famous for his close relationship with Bieber … there is the Hillsong Church in LA as well. Lentz and JB were inseparable for years and the male singer saw him as a friend and spiritual mentor … at least until mid-2018.
As we reported … they have one big fall out that time, and was controversial enough when Carl had trouble saying congratulations to Justin when he got engaged Hailey Baldwin.
Biebs continues to attend Hillsong on the west coast, but he and Carl are clearly no longer friends as the pastor continues to lead the Hillsong NYC venue.
