What's Going On With Hillsong Church

So, it seems, that at their Color Conference (a women's conference), they had some sort of spectacle which included on of their youth leaders "dressing" (ha...) up as New York's famed Naked Cowboy! Now being creative with your ministry is one thing, but what is up with this?

Brian Houston responded to this a couple weeks ago. Basically someone involved with the creative team slipped it in there without going through any of the pastors. Per Houston, checks have been put in place to prevent it from happening again.

I have a slightly dark and subversive sense of humor and even I wouldn't have thought to do that.

Someone really wasn't thinking things through.

we all make mistakes and bad judgment calls in ministry. i once took my hs freshmen to a clothing optional beach, which my girls found out the hard way when they came across an elderly man enjoying the breeze. (granted, i didn't know it was clothing optional, but still.)

I'd love to hear this story a bit more fleshed out!

I hope that didn't come back to bite you in the butt? If I did that in Australia and that was reported, I would probably not be able to do my job anymore (work at a high school). My Church (as most are these days) also requires to pass a Work With Children Check (just a background check to make sure you're not a sex offender) to lead cell groups and what not, so I'd probably be disqualified from that too. Also leading camps.

Man there's a lot you wouldn't be able to do if you got prosecuted for that accident. It's scary really.

well, not to derail theology, but luckily in my case i had interned at my church in college and had returned and served the youth ministry for two years before i stepped up as the hs pastor. plus, i am fingerprinted all over CA and TX because i worked in public schools between the ages of 14 and 22

i'll tell the rest of the story in my journal in a few days. i seriously thought i would be removed from ministry or at least reprimanded, but that is not what happened.
