Hillsong Invades New York City

Hillsong NYC is now underway following the announcement in March, that Hillsong Church, based in Sydney, be starting a church in New York City.

The church, famous for its worship, has congregations in major cities around the world including London, Paris, Moscow, Stockholm, Kiev and Cape Town.

The new church is led by Carl and Laura Lenz and Joel Houston and is the first ever Hillsong Church in the USA. Houston is the world renowned songwriter and worship leader with Hillsong United and the founder of the ‘I-HEART’ movement.

Following the announcement, Brian Houston, the founder of Hillsong, said: “As the story of Hillsong New York unfolds, our mandate will remain the same: We desire to build a church that loves God and loves people.”

He added: “Since we announced our plans in New York City, I’ve learned that in Bible college days, Joel and Carl spoke about a dream to one day work together and build a church in New York. (here)
