(Kelsey Vlamis) Brian Houston, founder of the megachurch Hillsong, which has drawn congregants like Justin Bieber, Kourtney Kardashian, and Selena Gomez, said on Sunday he is stepping down as pastor while he fights accusations he hid sexual abuse committed by his father against a child.
“The court case I am facing is related to circumstances surrounding my father, and I need to be fully committed to preparation and engagement with the case and work closely with my lawyers in defending this charge,” Houston said in a statement, adding: “I intend to fight the charge and welcome the opportunity to set the record straight.”
Houston was charged in August with covering up a child sexual abuse case. Police in New South Wales, Australia, said he “knew information relating to the sexual abuse of a young male in the 1970s and failed to bring that information to the attention of police.”
