Hillsong East Coast Appoints Legal Team to Investigate ‘Cultural Issues’ After Carl Lentz Firing

Earlier this month, news broke that Carl Lentz, a high-profile pastor at the Hillsong East Coast church known for his connections to Justin Bieber, has been fired due to “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”

Lentz took to Instagram to reveal the reason behind his firing, writing that he “did not do an adequate job of protecting my own spirit, refilling my own soul and reaching out for the readily available help that is available.”

“I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and held accountable for that,” he continued. “This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions. I now begin a journey of rebuilding trust with my wife, Laura and my children and taking real time to work on and heal my own life and seek out the help that I need.”
