Description

Brian and Bobbie Houston - the Australian power couple who have grown the Hillsong movement from a church plant in the Sydney suburbs to an empire that today spans 125 sites across 27 countries - are the church’s Global Senior Pastors no more. The couple stood down earlier this year amid a series of scandals, including allegedly failing to report Brian’s father’s historic sexual abuse and a mysterious incident when Brian Houston accidentally went into the wrong hotel room at a conference, before spending 40 minutes inside with the female occupant. This week we are joined by Jonty Langley and Graham Nicholls to try and go beyond the lurid headlines about the very public fall of the Houstons to figure out what impact their departure might have for Hillsong and to consider what lessons, if any, we might learn from this sorry episode about accountability and oversight for church leaders.
