Justin Bieber: I’m Not Studying to Be a Minister


Justin Bieber clarifies some recent report claiming that he’s “reportedly studying to be a minister” for Hillsong. “I’m not studying to be a minister or anything even close to that. Have no desire for that. This is fake news,” according to the 26-year-old singer.

In his follow up IG Story Bieber added, “And btw Hillsong is not my church…For clarity I am a part of Churchome.”

Furthermore, the singer also explained in his IG story that “Church is not a place. We are the church.”

“We don’t need a building to connect with God,” he added, before posting a faith-filled message on his Instagram feed. “God is with us wherever we are.”

Justin Bieber has been open about attending the non-denominational church, formerly known as City Church and led by pastors Judah and Chelsea Smith. The congregation has previously drawn the attention of other famous celebrities like Ciara, Kourtney Kardashian and Selena Gomez.

Judah Smith talked about Bieber’s faith and connection to Churchome back in 2015 that, “I think Justin really had it in his heart to make this continual progression in his journey and development,” Smith said before adding, “It’s astounding to consider that at such a young age he’s experienced extraordinary fame, and yet here he is at 21 years old making some amazing decisions and really developing. I’m proud of who Justin is and the incredible journey he’s on.”

Justin Bieber’s church clarification comes just several months after Carl Lentz was terminated from his role at Hillsong for moral failings. The ex-Hillsong Pastor baptized Bieber years ago and was once Bieber’s spiritual confidant.

Carl Lentz also revealed back in November that, “I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and held accountable for that.” Lentz further added that the said failure is on him and him alone and he is taking full responsibility for his actions.
