60 Minutes: Hillsong Church founder under police investigation over handling of father’s sex crimes

Brian Houston, the founder of the Hillsong Church, is under investigation by New South Wales police over his handling of the sex crimes committed by his father Frank Houston.

Frank Houston was a Pentecostal pioneer, a leading Assemblies of God pastor who preyed on young boys in Australia and New Zealand in the 1960s and 1970s.

The first allegations of Frank Houston’s pedophilia emerged in the late 1990s, when Brian Houston was the Australian National President of the Assemblies of God, part of the largest Pentecostal denomination in the world.

In 2014, Brian Houston gave evidence before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse, which later found he had failed to take the matter to the police and had a conflict of interest in dealing with the complaints against his father.

It has emerged that in the wake of the Royal Commission’s findings, NSW Police began looking into his handling of his father’s crimes, an investigation that was suspended because of lack of evidence.

A NSW police spokesman said the investigation has been reopened and is now “current and active”.

Hillsong Christian Church leader Brian Houston and his ‘friends’ named in speech

Advice: Hillsong Christian Church leader Brian Houston leaves the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in 2014 after giving evidence about his knowledge of child sex allegations against his father, Frank.

Advice: Hillsong Christian Church leader Brian Houston leaves the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in 2014 after giving evidence about his knowledge of child sex allegations against his father, Frank.

Mr Shoebridge named Mr Morrison, former NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione and former NSW Premier Mike Baird as friends of Mr Houston in an address to NSW Parliament alleging there is “compelling evidence” to prosecute Brian Houston after matters raised at the child abuse royal commission.

The speech followed advice to one of Frank Houston’s victims that there is insufficient evidence to prosecute Brian Houston for failing to report allegations to police after they were raised with him in 1999.

“This weekend Mr Brian Houston will continue to preach, and this weekend (the victim) AHA will continue to demand the justice he deserves,” Mr Shoebridge told NSW Parliament in a speech shortly after midnight on Wednesday, in which he alleged the current police commissioner had not responded to a letter requesting urgent action.

Mr Shoebridge told parliament the victim, identified as AHA at the royal commission, is suffering a life-threatening illness “and is concerned justice will not be served in his lifetime”.

Challenge: NSW Greens MP and justice spokesperson David Shoebridge has told NSW Parliament a child sex victim has been told no charges will be laid against Hillsong Christian Church leader Brian Houston for failing to report child sex allegations about his father to police.

Challenge: NSW Greens MP and justice spokesperson David Shoebridge has told NSW Parliament a child sex victim has been told no charges will be laid against Hillsong Christian Church leader Brian Houston for failing to report child sex allegations about his father to police.

The speech came two days after Mr Morrison delivered a national apology to child sex survivors in which he acknowledged survivors wanted action rather than words from authorities.

“The problem is that despite this week’s apology the powerful still seem to be immune from prosecution. No-one, regardless of their friends, should be beyond the reach of the law,” Mr Shoebridge said.

The commission was told Mr Houston’s father Frank, who established the Sydney Christian Life Centre which later became the Hillsong Church, sexually abused a boy from the age of seven in the late 1960s and early 1970s while staying with the boy’s family. The boy was identified as AHA at the commission.

It is now 49 years since the abuse started, 19 years since Brian Houston was aware of it, and three years after the royal commission delivered its damning report, yet nothing has happened.

NSW Greens MP and justice spokesperson David Shoebridge.

“This did not happen once. It happened numerous times – in the boy’s home, in different churches and on an evangelical camp,” Mr Shoebridge said.

The abuse was disclosed to a number of church pastors in 1998, including two on the church’s NSW executive, and in 1999 the allegations were raised with Brian Houston, then the national president of the Assemblies of God in Australia..

The royal commission found Brian Houston and other senior church members failed to report the allegations to police or the NSW Commission for Children and Young People; that Mr Houston’s response repeatedly failed the victim and that he failed to deal with his own conflict of interest while leading the church. Brian Houston also had a role in a $10,000 payment to the victim, the commission was told.

Convicted: Former Catholic archbishop Philip Wilson after he was convicted for concealing the child sex crimes of Hunter paedophile priest Jim Fletcher.

“It is now 49 years since the abuse started, 19 years since Brian Houston was aware of it, and three years after the royal commission delivered its damning report, yet nothing has happened,” Mr Shoebridge told NSW Parliament.

“Neither Brian Houston nor any of the Hillsong Church’s leaders have faced any legal repercussions for their failure to report an indictable offence,” he said.

Mr Shoebridge said AHA was told there is insufficient evidence to proceed with a prosecution under section 316 of the NSW Crimes Act for the failure to disclose the allegations to police. The section was used to successfully prosecute Catholic Archbishop Philip Wilson for failing to report allegations against Hunter paedophile priest Jim Fletcher.

Mr Shoebridge told Parliament that Brian Houston is a close friend of Scott Morrison, “who mentioned him in his inaugural speech as one of his guiding lights”; is a friend of Mr Scipione who attended “numerous services” and is a friend of former Premier Mike Baird, who opened the Hillsong Epicentre in Baulkham Hills.

A NSW Police spokesperson said the matter was “still active, still being dealt with and it hasn’t been finalised”.

Mr Morrison, Mr Baird and Mr Scipione, through NSW Police, have been contacted for comment.

A spokesperson for Hillsong referred the Newcastle Herald to a November, 2015 statement on the Hillsong website by its board and elders, responding to the royal commission findings.

“This royal commission did not directly involve Hillsong Church. The abuse committed by the late Frank Houston, the father of our senior pastor Brian Houston, occurred many years before Hillsong Church existed, when he was a credentialed Assemblies of God minister,” the statement said.

“We are confident that the actions of Pastor Brian, from the moment he discovered the news about his father, were done with the best intentions towards the victim. The findings of the royal commission confirmed that his actions resulted in the perpetrator being immediately removed from ministry.

“It should be emphasised that Pastor Brian is not a perpetrator of abuse, has never been accused of abuse, and took immediate action to expose and stop a child abuser.”

Channel Nine Sixty Minutes website:

“The enormously popular Hillsong Church proudly boasts that it believes in people and their ability to influence the world with good. It was founded by the telegenic and usually talkative Brian Houston. But he didn’t want anything to do with this story reported by Liz Hayes, and that’s because it’s about evil – the most un-Christian behaviour imaginable, and his own father, Frank Houston. He too was a high-profile church leader, one who used his position and influence to abuse children. One of his victims was Brett Sengstock, who because of Houston’s depravity has endured a life of misery, hiding in the shadows. But not any longer.”

60 Minutes: Dying man wants justice after high-profile pedophile pastor allowed to live out days in peaceful retirement

Brett Sengstock has waited a lifetime to tell his story to the world.

As a seven-year-old boy, he was repeatedly sexually abused by the high-profile pastor who was supposed to protect him.

Frank Houston was a leader of the Assemblies of God, a fiery Pentecostal preacher who condemned sin and preached forgiveness.

“When you do that to a child, you murder them. There’s nothing left,” victim Brett Sengstock said. (60 Minutes)

He was also a serial pedophile who was never brought to justice for his crimes.

‘Crossing the Line’ airs tonight on Channel 9 at the special time of 7.00PM after Channel Nine News. For more on 60 Minutes head to the official website.

Tonight, on 60 Minutes, Mr Sengstock speaks out in an explosive interview that exposes how the church protected the predator in its ranks.

Frank Houston was the father of Brian Houston, the leader of the Hillsong Church empire.

The abuse began in 1970 when Mr Sengstock was just seven years old.

Frank Houston would visit from New Zealand and stay over with the Sengstock family.

As Mr Sengstock tells reporter Liz Hayes, he and his parents regarded Frank Houston as royalty.

“It was like having the Pope come. Exciting, you know, we were thrilled to have them there,” he said.

It was during these stays that Frank Houston would slip in to seven-year-old Brett’s bedroom, night after night, to sexually abuse him, abuse that would continue until the age of 12.

“He would come into my room and lay on top of me,” Mr Sengstock tells Liz Hayes.

“When you do that to a child, you murder them. You take everything away from them.  There’s nothing left.”

When Frank Houston’s pedophilia first came to light in the late 1990s, he was investigated by the Assemblies of God and more cases of abuse were uncovered.

But led by Brian Houston, none of the AOG’s hierarchy took his criminal behaviour to the police and Frank Houston was able to live out his days in retirement.

In 2014, 10 years after Frank Houston’s death, Brett Sengstock would give evidence of his ordeal as witness AHA at the Royal Commission into child sex abuse.

It was the first time the true horror of the pastor’s double life was publicly revealed.

Now at 56 years of age, and battling stage four cancer, Brett is giving up his anonymity to speak out before it’s too late.

“I’m tired of people speaking for me and telling the world how I felt and how I’m feeling,” he tells Liz Hayes.

“Now I stand before you with who I really am.”

All Brett wants is justice and acknowledgement of his ordeal and his abuser’s role in it.

“It’s just like it’s been brushed under the carpet,” he says.

Brett Sengstock’s revelations raise serious questions about the case and shine new light on how Brian Houston handled the sins of his father.

child abuse

Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong’s child abuse victims number in the hundreds. Over four hundred boy and male teen victims.

 

The following is the signed statement of boy victim AHA to the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in October 2014.

AHA is one of Pastor Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong’s, sexual abuse boy victims.

AHA’s statement is dated 30 September 2014, a month before the Australian Royal Commission examined Brian Houston, Hillsong Church and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC).

The ACC was formerly called the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG).

Boy victim AHA read this statement to the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014.

Child sexual abuse. Hillsong protects pedophiles.

 

I watched AHA give his testimony on my laptop on my farm in Bellingen, Northern NSW in October 2014.

Victim AHA took the oath. He was not visible on the screen but his voice was clear and strong. But he sounded broken.

AHA said his occupation was a disability pensioner. That his life had been a train wreck because of the impact of Pastor Frank Houston’s repeated abuse of him as a mere child from the tender and trusting age of 7 until the still very young and vulnerable age of 11. What a monster Pastor Frank Houston was.

On 30 September 2014 victim AHA was interviewed at the Royal Commission privately and had provided a written testimony. He shared his testimony verbally at the Royal Commission.

AHA recalled how in the late 1960s his family was involved quite heavily with the Australian Assemblies of God. They lived in a 2 bedroom flat in Coogee Beach.

In about 1969 or 1970 Pastor Frank Houston would visit Australia from New Zealand and take Christian meetings.

AHA’s family loved and trusted Pastor Frank Houston and were very supportive of him and his Christian ministry.

 

Pastor Frank Houston. Not laughing now?

Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Evil secret lifelong pedophile. Unrepentant, deceptive and in denial to the end. Over four hundred boy and male teen victims. Not laughing now. In Hades awaiting the Great  Final Judgment.

 

Pastor Frank Houston stayed with AHA’s family at times.

One time he stayed for a week with Brian, his then teen-age son, while Pastor Frank Houston was preaching at local churches in Sydney. Brian and AHA and his sister would play on the beach with Brian and so on.

 

The life of Brian

Brian Houston head pastor of Hillsong Global Church. A heartless and very greedy man. Used to stay at AHA’s family apartment in Coogee Beach, Sydney, four beaches south of Bondi Beach, as a teenager and play with boy victim AHA on the beach when he was aged 7

 

The sleeping arrangements were that Frank and Brian would sleep in the bedroom in a double bunk where AHA’s sister normally slept. AHA’s sister would sleep in a osteopath bed of his dad’s in his parents room.

AHA slept alone on the enclosed balcony. AHA shared that during a one week stay by Frank and Brian, Pastor Frank Houston came into his bed every night and lay on him. AHA shared how he was asleep when this happened and awoke to find Pastor Frank lying on top of him.

AHA said this went on for hours during the night but stopped when it was still dark outside. He said Pastor Frank Houston touched him inappropriately.

AHA said he froze with fear, couldn’t speak and felt like it would go on forever.

AHA testified that on repeated occasions at his home and at other locations, Pastor Frank Hosuton sexually molested him.

Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Church. For five years the secret lifelong pedophile sexually molested boy victim AHA at his parent’s home in Coogee Beach Sydney when he stayed there as a guest, several times with his teen son Brian.

 

For 5 years Pastor Frank Houston came into his room when he stayed at AHA’s parents flat in Coogee, and lay on him, that he placed his hands on his genitals, that he placed a finger in his anus and that he masturbated AHA. AHA said he can’t recall, if oral sex was involved.

Throughout his testimony AHA was clear, strong and unemotional. AHA didn’t break down with emotion or anything but he said that the repeated sexual abuse experiences with Pastor Frank Houston from the ages of 7 to 12 had completely wrecked his life.

What came out very clearly from listening to the Hearing today is that Pastor Brian Houston is heartless towards victims of his father Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse and has done nothing to help them.

As I predicted in my last blog written this morning prior to the Hearing, Pastor Brian Houston hired an expensive lawyer, a Mr Higgins, to talk on his behalf at the Royal Commission.

My impression of Mr Higgins is that he is a hired hand with no heart for the victims. In fact his tone towards AHA was pompous and quite condescending. He waffled on about irrelevant things like dates and tried to detract from the credibility of the victim.

The Commissioner got irritated with him a few times and asked him what he was trying to achieve with all the minor rumblings about dates.

Pointedly Mr Higgin’s didn’t try to say the victim was making the whole thing up.

Nor did Pastor Brian Houston’s lawyer Mr Higgins challenge AHA’s allegation that Pastor Brian Houston had accused him of tempting his dad to commit pedophilia.

The problem for the erudite Mr Higgins, Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston is that Pastor Frank Houston confessed his sexual abuse of victim AHA to many people including AOG staff, clergy and to AHA himself in 2000.

The problem is also that victim AHA sounded like he was telling the simple truth of what happened.

The victim AHA said that Pastor Frank Houston tried to pay him off and said Pastor Frank was desperate to obtain his forgiveness.

AHA said that Pastor Frank Houston phoned him many times in about 2000 and asked for his forgiveness and said stuff like say that he was really afraid what Almighty God would do to him on the other side when he died. For Pastor Frank Houston was old and destined to pass from this earth four years later.

By the end of the day I was wondering why anyone would go to Hillsong, listen to a cold-hearted so-called Pastor like Brian Houston, buy Hillsong product, sing their songs or ever want to hear the Houston or Hillsong name again.

Pastor Brian Houston. Completely heartless towards victims of his father Pastor Frank Houston's child sex abuse. Zero care factor. Only concerned about the Houston and Hillsong name and reputation.

Here is the transcript of AHA boy victim’s statement.

I’ve downloaded it from the Royal Commission website. There are numerous other interesting documents there.

 

Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse

Statement

Name (suppressed)

Address (suppressed)

Occupation: Disability Pensioner Date 30 September 2014

     1. This statement made by me accurately sets out the evidence that I am prepared to give to the Royal Commission into    Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The statement is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.
  1. Where direct speech is referred to in this statement, it is provided in words or words to the effect of those which were used, to the best of my recollection.
  2. My full name is (suppressed)   My date of birth is-1962.
  3. In or about the late 1960s my family were quite heavily involved in Assemblies of God church (“AOG”). My family were personal friends with Pastor Frank Houston (“Pastor Frank”) and his family. Pastor Frank lived in New Zealand however, he frequently visited Australia to preach and conduct religious seminars. By the late 1970s he was also setting up the church, Sydney Christian Life Centre (“Sydney CLC”) in Sydney. Sydney CLC first started as open air meetings in a scout hall in Double Bay, and quickly evolved into Sydney CLC headquarters on Oxford Street. Sydney CLC later merged with Hills Christian Life Centre (“Hills CLC”) to become Hillsong Church.
  4. About 1969 or 1970, Pastor Frank would stay with my family in Coogee, NSW every now and again when he came to Australia. I was about seven or eight years old at this time. His son Brian, who was in his mid-teens, also stayed with us on one or two occasions. Brian and I would play together at Coogee Beach when they would come stay with us. Pastor Frank’s other son, Graeme would also stay sometimes. Pastor Frank’s wife would sometimes visit but she didn’t stay.
  1. In January 1970, I recall that Pastor Frank and his son, Brian, stayed with us for almost a whole week. I’m aware of the date because Pastor Frank signed and dated my mother’s bible which she still has and this is the day before my birthday. A photocopy of the signed bible is attached to this statement as “Annexure A”.
  2. Pastor Frank was a popular preacher and during this visit from New Zealand he didn’t just preach at one church but visited different churches. My family would often go to the different churches with him. We would go to see him before or after the meeting and he would hug and kiss me in front of other people. We would also sometimes go into an office alone where he would feel between my legs. I remember this happening at an evangelical camp in Windsor.
  3. On this trip, Pastor Frank and Brian were staying in my sister’s room which had a bunk bed while my sister stayed in my parent’s room. I had a room to myself that was a walled off part of our verandah. Pastor Frank would creep into my room late at night nearly every night of the week. I would be asleep when he came in and then I would wake up with him standing over me. I remember that when he was touching me inappropriately I would be petrified and would just lay very still. I could not speak while this was happening and felt like I could not breathe. I’m not sure how long he would stay in the room with me but it felt like forever. I know that he left when it was still full dark.
  4. The abuse in my home and at the different church meetings continued over a period of years until I reached puberty. Pastor Frank wanted nothing to do with me after I reached puberty.

10. I continued to attend Sydney CLC regularly after the abuse stopped. I usually attended every Sunday. I can’t recall when I   stopped attending church but my attendance slowly filtered away as I wasn’t keen on being too close to Pastor Frank. On occasions I would still see him at the back of the church and he would come up and hug me.

I was so ashamed of the abuse that I kept it inside for many years and did not tell anyone. It was only on or about 1978, when I was about 16 years old, that I told my mother about the abuse. My mother was still heavily involved in the church at that time and I observed that it was difficult for her to accept what I told her. All of her friends were involved in the church, and the Houstons were considered to be almost like royalty in those circles. Pastor Frank was a very popular character and everyone wanted to go to his church in those days. After I told her about the abuse my mother said words to the following effect: “You don’t want to be responsible for turning people from the church and sending them to hell.”

My mother’s response affected me and made me think that I did not want to cause any trouble. I therefore did not pursue the matter any further.

Disclosure of abuse to church

12. On or about September 1999, my mother attended a church meeting at Emmanuel Christian Family Church in Plumpton, New South Wales. The church is an AOG church. Pastor Barbara Taylor (“Pastor Taylor”) ran that church and was holding an outreach meeting.

Pastor Barbara Taylor explained how Pastor Brian Houston had stonewalled her, ignored her, sidelined her and belittled her for fourteen long year from 1999 until the Royal Commission in order to shelter and protect his father, his reputation as the great Brian Houston and Hillsong reputation, which is his baby.

Pastor Kevin Mudford (“Pastor Mudford”) was also present at the outreach meeting.

13. My mother called me and told me she had a conversation with Pastor Mudford and told him that I had been sexually abused by Pastor Frank. She warned me that Pastor Mudford was on his way to my home. She said words to the following effect: “He’s coming around there. He’s very aggressive, he’s very angry at you.”

14. Shortly thereafter, Pastor Mudford came to my home and started pounding on the front door. I believe it was a Sunday morning when these events took place. When I opened the door he proceeded to shout at me in a very aggressive manner. He shouted words to the effect that I had made up the story about Pastor Frank. Pastor Mudford then barged through the front door.

 

"Pastor" Kevin "Mad dog" Mudford. It makes you wonder what kind of bogan monkeys the Australian Christian Churches let into ministry.

15. Pastor Taylor arrived as Pastor Mudford was getting ready to leave my house as I wanted him out. Both Pastor Taylor and Pastor Mudford questioned me about the allegations I had made against Pastor Frank. They tried to tell me that what I was saying was not true, and they both said words to the following effect: “Frank Houston couldn’t have done that. He’s a good man.” However, I got the impression that Pastor Taylor believed my story to some degree by the end of our conversation. She said that she would speak to the church hierarchy on my behalf and get back to me about it.

Response

16. On or about 16 September 1999, about a week after Pastors Taylor and Mudford had come to my house, I received a letter from Pastor Taylor [ACC.0006.001.0006]. Pastor Taylor stated in her letter to me that she had seen Pastor John McMartin, an executive member of the AOG and that Pastor McMartin had said that the AOG have a structure in place that can and will deal with allegations of child sexual abuse if they have a written accusation with the time and place. The letter also said “the secular courts is not the way…” and she encouraged me to go to the church with my story as the church would give me a fair hearing.

 

John McMartin. Too skinny for jail at the moment.

Pastor John McMartin. Has been recommended for prosecution by the Royal Commission for pedophile protection. Too skinny for jail at the moment. Needs to eat his baked beans, bacon, sausages, hash browns and eggs and fatten up.

John McMartin

Pastor John McMartin of Inspire Church Liverpool Sydney. A total crook, liar and charlatan.

 

17. Although Pastor Taylor told Pastor McMartin of the AOG my story, I never received any correspondence or communication directly from anyone at Sydney CLC, Hillsong or from anyone in the AOG hierarchy itself about this matter. The only contact I had was from Pastor Frank himself who started calling me and my mother on a regular basis. The phone calls started coming about a week or two after I received the letter of 16 September 1999 from Pastor Taylor. I received several telephone calls from Pastor Frank over different periods. When he called me, he would say words to the following effect: “I want to get together to discuss some sort of money as a compensation to you… I don’t want this on my head when I stand in front of God.” The money was something that he brought up. It wasn’t something that I asked him for.

18. I eventually agreed to meet with Pastor Frank on or about early 2000. I decided to meet him because of his phone calls as I didn’t want to hear from him any longer and just wanted to get it over and done with. The meeting was at Redfern Station in Sydney. I attended that meeting but when I saw Pastor Frank pull up in his green Jaguar, I walked away. Seeing him bothered me and I did not want to be anywhere near him. Even being in the same State as him bothered me and I just didn’t want to connect with him.

19. Following the near-meeting at Redfern station, Pastor Frank continued to attempt to make contact with me and my mother. When he called me, he would say words to the following effect, “we need to meet. I want to organise some money far you, some compensation, and get this off.”

20. On or about late 2000, whilst Pastor Frank was still active in the church, I agreed to meet with him. The meeting was held at a McDonalds restaurant at Thornleigh, just up Pennant Hills Road. When I arrived at McDonalds, I saw Pastor Frank’s green Jaguar in the car park. Inside the restaurant I saw Pastor Frank sitting down next to a man whom I did not recognise {“the unnamed man”}.

Nabi Saleh. Long-time hillsong elder and very wealthy man. Worth $200 million. An evil heartless accomplish of Brian Houston. Up to all the Hillsong graft, deception and pedophile protection to his snout.

 

The unnamed man was eating a burger. Pastor Frank said words to the following effect:

“I want your forgiveness for this. I don’t want to die and have to face God with this on my head.”

The unnamed man then put a food-stained napkin down in front of me and words were said to the following effect

Unnamed man: “You put your signature there and I’ll give you the $10,000.”

Pastor Frank: “Just do it and say you forgive me, and that’ll be it.”

 

Pastor Frank Houston as an old man. Evil life-long pedophile.

Pastor Frank Houston an evil scheming totally deluded completely dysfunctional old man about the time of this meeting. Evil life-long secret pedophile. Pastor Frank to boy victim AHA: “Just sign it and say you forgive me, and that’ll be it”. Its not that easy Frank. God requires your head.

 

At this stage, I was nearly going into a panic. I just wanted to get away from the whole situation. I signed the napkin. The unnamed man said words to the following effect

“If there’s any problems contact me or Brian but you’ll get your money.”

 

Wishing you all a Happy and Free Christmas. Brother Nabi Saleh. The Mr Fixer of Hillsong.

Corrupt Hillsong elder Nabi Saleh. A close evil friend of Brian Houston. The Mr Fixer of Hillsong. Part of the Hillsong mafia.

 

I left the restaurant after that.

21. About two months after my meeting with Pastor Frank at McDonalds, I telephoned Brian Houston as I had not yet received any money from Pastor Frank. We had a conversation to the following effect:

Me: “What’s happening with the payment I was promised? I agreed to forgive your father.”

Brian: “Yes, ok, I’ll get the money to you. There’s no problem… You know, it’s your fault all of this happened. You tempted my father.”

Me: “Why, did he molest you also?”

Brian got very angry after that. He slammed the phone down after saying words to the effect of:

“You’ll be getting money.”

 

b

Pastor Brian Houston. Very mixed up. Almost certainly molested as a little boy by his “out-of-control” evil pedophile father Frank Houston  the founder of Hillsong Church.

 

22. I’m certain that Brian Houston knew about the meeting that I had with Pastor Frank at McDonalds. I did not tell him about the meeting during our phone conversation however, he appeared to be aware of it and I therefore assumed that Pastor Frank had discussed it with him. Pastor Frank had also told me I could call Brian Houston if there was a problem so that made me believe that Pastor Frank would speak to Brian about the agreement made at McDonalds.

  1. About half a month later a cheque in the sum of $10,000 arrived in the post. There was no correspondence of any sort with the cheque. I can not recall who the drawer of the cheque was.
  2. On or about 2000, I was watching Brian Houston deliver a Hillsong sermon on television. Brian Houston was very emotional and teary-eyed and he said to the congregation words to the following effect:
 “I would like you all to pray for me and my family. My father has been involved in a minor indiscretion that happened thirty years ago in New Zealand and we would just like you to pray for us.”

I knew this to be a reference to allegations that I had read online that Pastor Frank had sexually abused a child or children thirty years ago while he was working with the Salvation Army in New Zealand. I was appalled that Brian Houston had not revealed the extent of the allegations against his father, including my more recent story of abuse by him in Australia. He also avoided using the word “paedophilia” or anything that like that. I thought it was corrupt that he has used the phrase “involved in a minor indiscretion” to describe Pastor Frank’s conduct. As far as I was aware, Pastor Frank was still preaching on and off at this time, and was also doing seminars.

25. On around 2000 Brian Houston was featured on the ABC’s Australian Story, and he said that his father would step down from preaching.

26. I’m not aware of the exact time but sometime between the years 2000 and 2004, my mother told me that Brian Houston had telephoned her. The reason I know it was between these years as it was after the time that everything started to become public in 2000 but before Pastor Frank’s memorial service in November 2004. My mother told me that Brian Houston had said words to the following effect:

Brian Houston: “It’s terrible what happened to AHA~but the church has to come first… My father never molested me.”

 

Brian Houston in denial: "It's terrible what happened to ~but the church has to come first... My father never molested me."

Brian: “I wasn’t molested by dad. Dad would come to my bedroom when i was a little boy, lie with me and put his hand down my pyjamas to help  him relax at night.” Brian Houston is in denial: “It’s terrible what happened to AHA~but Hillsong church has to come first… We can’t spare the cash to help AHA or any of the other poor sexual abuse victims. My father Frank never molested me.”

 

27. As far as I am aware the Police were never involved in this matter and Hillsong did not notify any external authorities about the allegations against Pastor Frank.

Effects of abuse

28. I feel that what Pastor Frank did to me destroyed my childhood. What he did to me and what he made me do has had a bad reflection on me for the rest of my life. For many years I was full of shame, fear and embarrassment. Now I feel mostly anger.

29. The abuse has had long-term effects on me. Late in the night I still get flashbacks of Pastor Frank in my bedroom and see his face floating around me. I have difficulties being in the presence of elderly men. I also have difficulty being intimate with my wife. I can’t relate to my own children. I find it awkward to hug my own sons because I don’t want them getting used to another male hugging them. Emotionally I don’t feel close to anyone and I feel like I’m dead and emotionless on the inside. I am currently suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress syndrome. I am on a disability pension. My doctor has diagnosed the cause of these illnesses as Pastor Frank’s abuse.

 

Boy victim AHA: "I still get flashbacks of Pastor Frank in my bedroom and see his face floating around me".

Gay Frank-enstein. Boy victim AHA: “I still get flashbacks of Pastor Frank in my bedroom and see his face floating around me”.

 

30. I felt very isolated when my story first started to come out and the church community made me feel like I was the problem. Nobody believed my story and others put pressure on me to keep my mouth shut. I felt that the church’s response was completely inadequate and I have received absolutely no support, counselling, apology or acknowledgment of the abuse. I believe that Brian Houston and the other elders of Hillsong church kept Pastor Frank’s history as quiet as they could, and they have not been held accountable for how they have handled my allegation.

The leaders of Hillsong mega-church and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes for protecting the pedophile Frank Houston from the Police.

These are the leaders of Hillsong mega-church and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

The relevant NSW Legislation is the CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS (CARE AND PROTECTION) ACT 1998 – SECT 23.

The Australian Christian Churches (ACC) is the new name for the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) since Brian Houston renamed with this name in 2007.

The crimes are firstly that the pedophile Frank Houston was not reported to the Police in 1999, when all the leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches movement were made aware of serious pedophile crimes committed against little boys and young males over many decades by Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong Church

And secondly that they colluded in sheltering the pedophile Frank Houston from the NSW Police for five years from 1999 to November 2004, when he died.

The following twelve men and, one woman Bobbie Houston, should all be charged with these crimes under NSW Law.

Pastor Ian Wood, who sheltered Frank Houston at Hawkesbury AoG (known as Hawkesbury Christian Centre) from 2000 for a few years until Frank Houston’s health began to fail.

Ian Wood died recently on holiday in America.

I’ll leave the case against him in this article below but clearly he escaped being charged but he’ll still have to do a “please explain” to Almighty God for what he did, and for how he deprived the boy and teen victims of Frank Houston of justice.

 

Pastor Ian Wood. No image available.

Pastor Ian Wood. No image available.

 

Ian Wood colluded with Brian Houston and the other AOG and Hillsong leaders in sheltering Frank Houston from the NSW Police in a location far away from the Hillsong limelight, from difficult questions from savvy people and prying questioning Sydney eyes.

I’m now going to outline how each of these men, and one woman Bobbie Houston, committed these crimes and why they should be prosecuted under NSW Law, starting with Brian Houston.

 

Pastor Brian Houston the current head co-pastor of Hillsong International

 

Brian. Who me? guilty? You've got to be kidding me.

Brian to the Royal Commission. Who me? guilty? You’ve got to be kidding me.

 

Pastor Brian Houston is perhaps the most liable for these crimes.

In 2000 Brian set out to protect his old pedophile dad Frank from the NSW Police. He’d had advice from a barrister that if he surrendered Frank to the Police, he’d get charged, go to Court and go to jail. So Brian decided to hide his old dad Frank from the NSW Police. All the other leaders colluded with Brian but Brian was the ringleader.

Frank has always been Brian’s hero, although that sentiment may be slowly changing. Its taking a while but in time Brian will hate his dad as much as the boy victims despise him. It may be that in a cold jail cell shared with up to two inmates, Brian may start to develop negative feelings towards the dad who probably sexually abused him and dumped his corrupt secret homosexual and pedophile world on him.

 

The criminal pedophile Frank Houston, Liked surrounding himself with young males and boys.

Brian’s father- The criminal pedophile Frank Houston. Laughing at Brian from Hades.

 

In fact Brian is 99.9 per cent likely to have been a little boy victim of his dad. After all his dad the pedophile Frank was a pedophile, and that’s what pedophiles do. Frank’s dad Frank abused little Frank, according to Frank Houston, and Frank probably abused little Brian and his brother Graeme. Graeme refuses to attend church to this day and I think he now lives in England.

This is what the Royal Commission’s Findings say:

“In 1999 and 2000, Pastor Brian Houston and the National Executive of the Assemblies of God in Australia did not refer the allegations of child sexual abuse against Mr Frank Houston to the police. In 1999 and 2000, Pastor Brian Houston had a conflict of interest in assuming responsibility for dealing with AHA’s allegations because he was both the National President of the Assemblies of God in Australia and the son of Mr Frank Houston, the alleged perpetrator. In 1999, members of the National Executive who attended the Special Executive Meeting of the Assemblies of God in Australia did not follow the National Executive’s policy for handling allegations of child sexual abuse against pastors and failed to recognise and respond to Pastor Brian Houston’s conflict of interest”.

Please note the first sentence:

“In 1999 and 2000, Pastor Brian Houston and the National Executive of the Assemblies of God in Australia did not refer the allegations of child sexual abuse against Mr Frank Houston to the police”.

These words are Pastor Brian Houston’s fait accompli.

These words are Pastor Brian Houston’s Waterloo.

These words are Pastor Brian Houston’s comeuppance.

My comments:

These words seal Brian Houston’s fate.

Brian also arranged for his old pedophile dad Frank to be located up beside the quiet Hawkesbury River, North West of Sydney.

If you’ve ever been up the Hawkesbury its a quiet little backwater, far enough away from annoying questions from the savvy Sydney people, especially the NSW Police. A nice place for a criminal pedophile to lay low.

Pastor Ian Woods hid Frank Houston from the NSW Police up the Hawkesbury

Pastor Ian Woods of Hawkesbury Christian Centre, an Assemblies of God (AOG) Church in those days, wasn’t subpoenaed by the Royal Commission, but his role in sheltering and protecting the criminal pedophile Frank Houston was mentioned there.

Like all the other Australian AoG Churches it is an Australian Christian Churches church now.

Pastor Ian Woods was the NSW State Superintendent of the AOG and presumably also on the National Executive.

Pastor Ian Woods is criminally liable for not reporting the criminal pedophile Frank Houston to the Police in 2000 until 2004 when Frank Houston died.

Pastor Ian Woods is guilty of sheltering Frank Houston for several years until Frank Houston’s health deteriorated and he went into an old folks home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Pastor Ian Woods, in collusion with Brian and Bobbie Houston, organised for Frank Houston to have a safe-haven at Hawkesbury Assemblies of God church.

 

Evidence of the sheltering- what a member of Hawkesbury AOG church observed

This is what a member of that church shared with Hillsong Church Watch site:

“Recently, a commentor shared this information on our site:

I attended Hawkesbury Church (then Hawkesbury Christian Centre) in the early 2000s under its minister Ian Woods, who was then State Superintendent of the AOG and presumably also on the National Executive.

Frank Houston was parked at Hawkesbury after he was stood down and the congregation was told to treat him like royalty. Certainly there was no warning to families in the congregation that we were harbouring a pedophile. He was our National Leader’s father, and a super-apostle in our movement.

Although I do not believe there was a risk of him reoffending, still, what I recall was the total veil of silence that fell over the matter, to the extent that one Hillsong member left the Sunday service when Brian Houston was forced to say something, believing that Frank was guilty of some kind of financial mismanagement.

Brian says that his Father never preached again. I’m pretty sure that’s wrong. While he was with us, he was allowed to preach. Brian is, yet again, a liar”.

 

My comments:

 

Frank pics

Brian and Frank Houston circa late 1970s. Five years after Frank Houston sexually abused AHA, WNZ1, SA1, ANZ1 who suicided after Frank Houston abused him in an Auckland New Zealand hotel room and Peter Fowler. The six Lower Hutt boy victims aged about ten years old were abused in the 1960s. Ian Wood told the Hawkesbury congregation, “the congregation were told to treat him like royalty’. Is this what Australian AOG/ Australian Christian Churches royalty looks like?

 

 

The false and deceptive adulation of Frank Houston

“Frank Houston was parked at Hawkesbury after he was stood down and the congregation was told to treat him like royalty. Certainly there was no warning to families in the congregation that we were harbouring a pedophile. He was our National Leader’s father, and a super-apostle in our movement”.

In 2000 I attended a large combined Christian Life Centre rally at Homebush. All the Christian Life Centre Churches combined there. Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney based in Danks Street, Wasterloo. Hillsong based in Baulkham Hills. Gosford CLC.

Part way through Frank Houston was pushed out across the stage in a wheel-chair. Jonathan Wilson, who had taken over from Frank Houston as the leading pastor at CLC Sydney, did a gushy rave about how great Frank Houston is and what a legend he is. Then he was wheeled out from the right side of the stage to the middle. The whole assembled CLC/ Hillsong were told, “Here’s a great man and a great apostle of faith. Let’s all stand and honour him”. The whole assembled stood to their feet and applauded Frank Houston madly.

I’d heard Frank Houston was a pedophile and even though he’d been stood down for pedophilia, we were told he’d retired.

I walked out of that meeting in disgust.

I knew the leaders knew Frank Houston was a pedophile but they still honoured Frank Houston in that way.

The Hawkesbury eye-witness was there in 2000 at Hawkesbury AoG. He reported:

“Frank Houston was parked at Hawkesbury after he was stood down and the congregation was told to treat him like royalty. Certainly there was no warning to families in the congregation that we were harbouring a pedophile. He was our National Leader’s father, and a super-apostle in our movement”.

“the congregation was told to treat him like royalty”

“Certainly there was no warning to families in the congregation that we were harbouring a pedophile”.

 

Frank Houston was ministering in Canberra after being banned by his son Brian

In the Royal Commission’s Findings it says:

“He (Brian Houston) gave evidence that Mr Frank Houston was ‘stood down instantly’ and that Mr Frank Houston ‘never, ever preached again anywhere after I confronted him in my office in mid to late November 1999’. However, Pastor Taylor’s records show that Mr Frank Houston continued to preach in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory on 4 and 5 December 1999”.

Pastor Barbara Taylor testified at the Royal Commission that she was very surprised to see Frank Houston on television in Canberra preaching.

 

Brian Houston’s criminal culpability in protecting and sheltering his father

Brian Houston is extremely culpable in respect to Frank Houston’s behaviour after he was banned, which appears to have been a flagrant disregard for the ban.

From the above eye-witness account of proceedings at Hawkesbury Christian Centre it seems that the congregation was hoodwinked by Pastor Ian Wood about why Frank Houston was in their midst.

If Brian Houston and Ian Wood had been honest and candid about what his dad Frank did then everyone would have treated him like an evil criminal pedophile and everyone’s children would have been safe.

How culpable it was of Brian, Ian Woods and all the other Hillsong and AoG/ ACC leaders to play these cover-up and pedophile protection games with the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Pure Bride of Christ.

Brian has launched into 2016 full of his usual blind confidence. Will Brian be led away like this at some time in the future? Time will tell.

Note of 22 April 2018

I know Hillsong and the Houstons better than anyone, having been at Hillsong from its inception in the early 1980s. Frank Houston, Brian Houston’s father, came over from New Zealand, on the run from New Zealand police for untold and almost innumerable sex offences offences against children in the previous four decades, in 1977.

I was at Hillsong before Brian Houston became a pastor in 1982, and before Hillsong was called Hillsong.

I helped Frank Houston build up Hillsong for a decade from 1981 to 2000.

Note of 27 October 2017

Pastor Brian Houston, the current head pastor of Hillsong Global Church is to face pedophile protection charges some time in the future from the Australian Police and Authorities.

I’ve edited the article below reflecting current up to date information.

This article and its updates

This article outlines the history of Pastor Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong, and his secret sexual abuse of hundreds of little boys, male pre-teens and male teens over five or more decades – possibly for 70 years if you include his grandchildren and ‘rent boys’ (underage male prostitutes).

This site is the most authoritative and comprehensive site on Hillsong corruption, Houston corruption and Hillsong pedophilia.

This article was first published on this site on 9 September 2012 prior to the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

It has been updated since as more facts have come to light and more events have unfolded.

Note written on Friday 27 May 2016

I have come to the conclusion from the evidence I’ve compiled over many years, and from my experience from 1981 to 2000 as an attender of Hillsong, in the 1980s as a senior lay pastor, and especially since hearing boy victim AHA’s testimony, that the Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile who used the Christian ministry to secretly and stealthily, access little boys and young teens for child and under-age sexual abuse and child rape.

In 1980, the pedophile Frank Houston, aged 58, embarked on a four year homosexual affair with his young 23 year old worship leader Peter Laughton.

Sexual involvement with a 20 year old male rather than with little boys and early teen boys was an exception, although there is evidence of countless masked homosexual encounters over Frank Houston’s whole lifetime with males over the age of homosexual consent which is 16 to 18 in most Western countries.

Brian Houston. The leader of the Chosen Seven.

Pastor Brian Houston, current head pastor of Hillsong – Brian, who I knew personally for twenty years, has been recommended to the Australian police by the Australian Royal Commission to be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church has been recommended for prosecution for pedophile protection crimes

In October 2015 the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in its Findings recommended Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church be charged with pedophile protection crimes by the Australian Police and Authorities.

Pastor Brian Houston and his Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches leadership associates conspired to shelter Brian’s father, the lifelong secret pedophile Frank Houston, from the NSW Police. Frank Houston confessed to a lifetime of secret child sexual abuse and child raping in 1999.

Note written on 19 October 2014:

In early October 2014, The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse examined the Australian Assemblies of God (which has a new name of Australian Christian Churches), Hillsong and Pastors Frank and Brian Houston.

Blog article of 13 September 2012 (updated 27 October 2017)

The pedophile Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong

Pastor Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong Church in Australia. Hillsong is by far Australia’s largest church numbering 15,000 in Australia. Its headquarters are in Baulkham Hills in Western Sydney.

It has Churches throughout the world in twenty locations. Hillsong claims 37,384 in its network world-wide. This is a very small number of adherents if viewed on a global basis.

Hillsong is like the small dog on the big street. Because of its strong cash-flow and music resources, it has made a lot of noise globally, but most people can tell Hillsong is completely dodgy and a money-cult.

“Weekly church attendance grew by 5% to 37,384 people in 2016. We welcomed three new locations including Darwin being led by great young pastors, Emma and Jared Cooke.

Our church in Australia also supported new Hillsong Churches in Sao Paulo, Braziland Phoenix, USA.”

Brian Houston 20

Pastor Frank Houston was the head of the New Zealand Assemblies of God (AOG) from 1965 to 1977, and a prominent leader in the Australian Assemblies of God denomination from the 1980s to 1990s.

By the time Frank Houston confessed to secret pedophile crimes at age 77 he was revered across the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God movements as a great holy pastor, Christian leader and a great evangelist. The truth is he was a rotten secret pedophile all that time- for many decades- probably since his early teens.

The Assemblies of God (AOG)

The Assemblies of God (AOG) is a Protestant denomination which started in the early 20th century in America and has spread across the planet. Its emphasis is on the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, like faith, healing and speaking in tongues.

The Protestants

A Protestant denomination is a denomination (international church organisation) whose origins are in “Protesting” against the Church of Rome.

Protesting, often at the greatest risk to their lives, against the Roman Catholic Church’s errant doctrines, its power, its Popes, its Bishops, its mercenary Jesuits of old- and its domination and blood-letting and martyrdom of true believers throughout the world- for over 1700 years until modern times.

If you think I’m exaggerating then google “The Waldenses” who were Protestants the Church of Rome genocided in parts of France in the 16th century or “The Covenanters” who the Church of Rome hunted and wiped out in 17th century Scotland.

The Jesuit mercenaries and Papist rulers of England desecrated their bodies after death and threw their corpses on rubbish tips as a warning to a fearful populace.

These were brave men who gave their lives for the cause of Christ.

Unlike Frank Houston, who was a secret life-long pedophile and covert homosexual, whose coal-black dark secrets which weren’t exposed until the last years of his life.

Frank Houston’s confession to being a lifelong secret pedophile

A two-year investigation of pedophile allegations going back to the 1960s, ordered by his son, Pastor Brian Houston, at the time head of the Australian Assemblies of God, and conducted by a prominent Australian AOG clergy on the AOG national executive, , Pastor John Lewis, found that the allegations were true. Frank Houston was banned for life from ever ministering in the AOG in Australia and New Zealand in December 1999 aged 77.

Frank Houston’s life ended in shame in November 2004. He spent his last days contemplating his place in Eternity. The burdens of his dark secrets were troubling his mind until the end. How would God treat him in the Hereafter? These were among many questions which plagued his dark and long-time fully corrupt mind as he faced death’s looming days. For from the evidence Frank Houston had been a pedophile since his early teens- a period of seventy years.

I knew Frank Houston personally

This blog article is the first in a series of articles in which I will recall information, reflections and personal feelings on this gifted, strange and very tortured man, who I knew very well for two decades. Or at least I thought I did.

I worked closely with Frank Houston through the decade of the 1980s as a builder doing building fit-out and renovations for Christian Life Centre (CLC), Darlinghurst, as Hillsong was known in the early days, and as a lay leader.

I was a prominent and successful lay leader at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst, with ten home fellowship groups under my care. I pioneered these groups in the challenging Inner City of Sydney. I attended CLC again for a few years in the mid to late 1990s. I was there when Pastor Frank Houston got stood down and the whole organisation changed its name from Christian Life Centre to Hillsong in 2000.

I should add that I was a strong Christian prior to first attending Hillsong in 1981. This may have kept me safe from allowing Frank Houston to do stuff like lay hands on me in prayer. A highly dangerous event in hindsight for anyone.

Frank Houston’s legacy

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like former co-head pastor of Hillsong City Campus, Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who is now pastoring in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy

Pastor Jonathan Wilson. An ignorant and highly narcissistic man. Fitted  in well at Hillsong.

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who is now pastoring in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, but has strong links with Brian still, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy.

The reality is that no amount of spin and re-invention can remove the dark black stains of the seven decades long trail of pedophile, masked homosexual, homosexual and homo-erotic activity that so-called “Pastor” Frank Houston, a complete fallen evil deviate, engaged in.

Pastor Brian Houston

Pastor Brian Houston. Growing fat while while he hangs out the victims of his dad’s abuse to dry. “Sorry victims of dad’s abuse, I’m a leading Christian pastor, but you’re on your own. Have a good life. Sorry again- Haha ha ha” – by the way boy victim AHA, it was your own fault you were sexually abused by my father Frank – you tempted him. This is what Brian told the AHA.

The fourteen boy and young teen known victims

In all I have verified fourteen or more victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s child and teen sex abuse.

Everyone closely associated with this matter senses there are a lot more victims out there.

From the evidence there are over 400 boy, pre-teen and teen victims. Many will not remember the incidents due to psychological defence mechanisms because of the trauma of the sexual abuse event(s).

Plus there would be, from the evidence, over 1000 victims of masked homosexual and pedophile abuse.

Frank Houston: “I was very active as a pedophile in the 1960s and 1970s.”

Pastor Frank Houston, from his own mouth near his death, said to his own son, Pastor Brian Houston, “I was very active as a pedophile at that time”. He was referring to the period from 1960 to 1975, when he was in his 40s to 50s when all the known 12 boy and 2 teen victims were sexually abused by him.

Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life

I believe Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life from his early teens.

He got kicked out of the New Zealand Salvation Army in the 1950s. He was a Captain. I believe it was for pedophilia.

Does anyone have any evidence on this? Can anyone talk to the New Zealand Salvation Army?

Frank Houston was a Salvation Army Captain in Auckland, New Zealand.

It was so long ago and I doubt if Salvation Army records about his dismissal accurately reflected what transpired, if they still exist, which is unlikely.

What organisation except Hillsong would still love its pedophile founder? Only a very corrupt one and I know of no other church organisation as corrupt as Hillsong from head to basement where dead boys bones line the walls and are scattered on the ground (metaphorically speaking for the benefit of Hillsong lawyers who read this blog-site in addition to Hillsong hackers- the Hillsong IT techs who hack and harass for their Prosperity Gospel fake jesus).

Pastor Frank Houston was a criminal pedophile who used the Christian pastor’s ministry as a foil, disguise and camouflage in order to gain the confidence and trust of innocent believing Christian families so he could access their children undetected for the purposes of sexually abusing them

Pastor Frank Houston was a criminal pedophile who used the Christian pastor’s ministry as a foil, disguise and camouflage in order to gain the confidence and trust of innocent believing Christian families so he could access their children undetected for the purposes of sexually abusing them.

Pastor Frank Houston was never genuine in anything he did. He mocked us all. How could a man be a genuine Christian pastor when he was secretly a life-long hardened criminal pedophile? Its not possible.

Frank Houston Boy victim AHA

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014 at a Hearing in Sydney revealed a witness AHA, who was abused in the Sydney suburb of Coogee when he was an innocent little boy aged 7 to 12 years old, in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Boy victim AHA was brave enough to testify anonymously in person.

It made me cry.

It was real bad stuff indeed.

It made me very angry, particularly since Pastor Brian Houston, the son of Pastor Frank Houston, like Pilate in the Bible who washed his hands of responsibility for Jesus prior to his death, has washed his hands of responsibility to help and care for the boy and teen victims of his dad’s abuse, who are now in their 50s and early 60s.

If you go to my blog articles starting on Tuesday 7 October 2014, you’ll find all the horrific details of Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse of victim AHA including genitalia fondling, digital anal penetration, masturbation of the victim as he reached early puberty, and Frank Houston using and getting the victim to pleasure him over a period of five years.

My source is AHA’s testimony on Day One of the Royal Commission’s examination of Hillsong, where AHA spoke for most of the day.

Its tragic, graphic, sordid, horrific and completely culpable by Hillsong, the Australian AOG and Pastor Brian Houston.

Pastor Brian Houston has tried for 14 years to bury his father sexual abuse of children, sanitise it, and try to make it go away, but like a Frankenstein monster it has jumped from the grave and is now attacking and tormenting Pastor Brian Houston, his supporters and the whole Houston clan of three generations.

Frank Houston has long departed but the corruption lives on in the errant and corrupt behaviour of his offspring, particularly in the life and deeds of Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, the current Head of Hillsong mega-church.

Rev William Frank...enstein Hosuton, molester of little boys. The most corrupt Pentecostal priest since the day of Pentecost.

The Fourteen Known Boy and Young Teen Victims

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse also mentioned six other little boy victims of Pastor Frank Houston in New Zealand in the 1960s. But there are many more.

I have been writing since September 2012 that there were six 10 year old boy victims of Frank Houston in Lower Hutt, New Zealand in the 1960s.

Here is my head count of child sex abuse victims of Frank Houston:

I have evidence of 14 or more mainly boy victims.

I have evidence of two teen victims, Peter Fowler, who went public in the 1970s with the encouragement of the now deceased prophet Pastor Philip Powell and teen victim ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a direct result of Frank Houston’s sexual abuse.

From the testimony of the boy victims and the circumstantial evidence, I believe there were over four hundred victims of Frank Houston’s abuse. He confessed to Brian Houston, his son, in circa 1999, that he was very active as a pedophile, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s.

Here are the boy victims aged 7 to 12, and one teenager aged 15 years old:

1. Six 10 year old boys Pastor Frank Houston molested while Head Pastor of Lower Hutt Assemblies of God (AOG), Wellington, New Zealand in the 1960s, while at the same time, General Superintendent of the New Zealand AOG (from 1965 to 1977).

2. Sydney boy victim AHA, as above revealed on Day One of Hillsong’s time at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014.

This is a particularly sordid case of repeated child sexual abuse of a little 7 year old boy by Pastor Frank Houston which continued for 5 years.  I have covered this case in detail in my blogs on the Royal Commission starting on the 7 October 2014.

3. One 15 year old boy, Peter Fowler, in the Lower Hutt AOG, New Zealand. The Lower Hutt AOG paid out Peter, but it wasn’t much money.

4. At least 4 boy victims at Assemblies of God Church camps in South Australia in the early 1970s. See my blogs on victim SA1 (my code name for him) dated 16 and 17 October 2014. SA1 was aged 11 years old at the tie of the abuse.

5. One young man in Auckland, New Zealand, ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a result of the abuse. He was in his late teens.

I sense there are a lot more New Zealand boy, pre-teen and teen male victims.

7. One boy aged 8 years old, in a suburb near Tawa, Wellington, New Zealand. My code name for him is WNZ1. The abuse was very similar to the Royal Commission victim AHA.

WNZ1 believes there were more boy abuse victims in his suburb. See my blogs date 18 and 19 October 2014.

TOTAL: 14 and many more victims. 400 plus boy and teen victims based on the evidence.

The First Hillsong

Christian Life Centre was the name of Hillsong and other Hillsong branches in the late 1970s and 1980s.

Boy victim SA1 from Adelaide South Australia

One of the victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s child sexual abuse at Kleimzeg Assemblies of God camps in South Australia in the early 1970s, SA1, contacted me after reading articles about Pastor Frank Houston on this blog site. He shared there were several other victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile abuse at these camps.

The epicentre of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities at these South Australian camps was the boy’s toilet block.  

The abuse involved the fondling of little boys genitalia and masturbation in the toilet block and bunk room. Pastor Frank Houston was very confident, blazen, perverse and tactile.

Yes Pastor Frank Houston. The greatest and most prominent AOG Pastor in Australia and New Zealand from 1970s to 1998, when the truth of his duality emerged.

Frank Houston was a secretive, manipulative, sordid, dishonest and heartless criminal pedophile for 70 years from the 1930s until his death in 2004. 

Pastor Brian Houston’s lies about the number of victims continues to this day

The official line of Hillsong Church and Pastor Brian Houston was that his father, Pastor William Francis “Frank” Houston only abused one boy in New Zealand 40 years ago.

This is the line that they held from the late 1990s to the Royal Commission in October 2014.

This is the view that was on their web-site for over a decade. When I was researching articles I wrote about Frank Houston and his pedophile activities in 2012, Hillsong’s website and all the accounts by Pastor Brian Houston and Hillsong media reflected this great lie.

This is the view they have told the Sydney Morning Herald and other newspapers.

This view is totally inaccurate and a blatant lie by Brian Houston.

It emerged at the Royal Commission that Pastor Brian Houston has known that this official view was untrue and a lie all this time.

Folks we’ve been all been deceived.

What is still lacking from Frank’s son, Pastor Brian Houston and the Hillsong Movement, which Brian controls, is any real degree of honesty and openness about Frank Houston.

For example, why won’t Brian and the AOG release the official AOG report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities?

Why didn’t Brian admit his father did numerous pedophile and homosexual acts, and not just one, like Brian portrayed for 14 years, until the Royal Commission exposed his lies? Why do Brian lie to us all? How can Brian lie like this and be a prominent Christian pastor?

Why is Brian Houston still lying about the number of victims telling Sydney’s channel nine reporter Leila McKinnon earlier this year when she asked how many victims Brian believes there are now, Brian hesitantly replied “six”. This is despite Brian knowing about at least 8 victims in 1999 and at least 9 victims in 2004. Why lie Brian? Who is the Father of Lies?

Was Brian Houston sexually abused by his rampant pedophile father Frank?

And the question lingers, was Pastor Brian Houston himself, and his brother Graeme, sexually abused by their father Frank?

Maybe that’s too personal for Brian to admit, if anything occurred.

Or maybe he can’t remember.

These dark memories are normally suppressed and buried by the defence mechanisms of the human psyche.

Brian’s brother Graeme has refused to attend church since his teens. Why?

Further, were Brian and Graeme aware of the accusations against his father while he was a lad?

The pre-adolescent little boys Pastor Frank Houston sexually abused in Lower Hutt were Brian and Graeme’s age at the time.

Brian even stayed with his dad at AHA’s family home in Coogee, while his father lay on top of victim AHA all night and abused him for the week of their stay on one of the many visits. One can see why pedophile Frank Houston liked to go to Sydney and stay at AHA’s parent’s house. Disgusting.

The pedophile Frank Houston’s overseas “evangelistic” trips overseas were really sex holidays away from his wife and people who he was accountable to.

Details of boy victim AHA’s sexual abuse

While Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of little 7 year old AHA, who is now 52, the skinny spider-like Pastor Frank Houston sexually molested him. He fondled his genitals, he fondled his little thighs and bottom, and he digitally penetrated him. AHA shared on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission that he froze with fear.

Boy victim AHA wondered, why was this hero of the faith, a godly man who my mum and dad loved, doing this to me?

Victim AHA lay frozen with fear as Frank Houston, the pariah, lay on top of him all night. The cats howled, the night birds cackled as the do in Australia, the dogs barked down the street and the garbos rattled their bins, and all this time through those long chill hours, Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of AHA doing awful creepy very perverse things to AHA.

If you think I’m being too graphic, this is what AHA said at the Royal Commission. These are the facts the Royal Commission’s lawyer, Simeon Beckett, read out. These are the facts that AHA read out from his witness statement on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission into Child Abuse in Sydney.

You can read AHA’s testimony at the Commission on http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au

Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad

It is interesting to note that victim AHA, who spoke anonymously at the Royal Commission, stated that Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad.

Pastor Brian Houston has denied this. I believe victim AHA because he sounded very honest and very coherent. Pastor Brian Houston hasn’t been honest about all this stuff for over 14 years.

The Royal Commission has also revealed how Hillsong, the AOG and Pastor Brian Houston have been heartless towards child abuse victims of Pastor Frank Houston and other AOG Pastor and leader pedophiles.

If you read my blogs on 7 to 10 October you’ll get drift.

Pastor Brian Houston the head pastor of Hillsong mega-church, a very wealthy “church” organisation, has refused to help the boy and young teen victims in any way

Pastor Brian Houston. Living in the shadow alf his father who he adored. I wonder how he feels about his dad now the tsunami of his dad's pedophilia has hit the fan?

Brian at the Royal Commission

At the Royal Commission on 9 October, when Pastor Brian Houston was the star witness, he wiggled and swirmed in the hot seat of the witness box. Then he straight out said they won’t help the victims in any way. The reasons are outlined in my blog articles on this site of 9 and 10 October 2104.

Pastor Frank Houston. Self-confessed pedophile.

Pastor Frank Houston. Creepy. Self-confessed pedophile.

Peter Laughton’s homosexual affair with Frank Houston

Since Peter Laughton, Pastor Frank Houston’s young worship leader, went public in 2007 about Frank’s abuse of him in the early 1980s, the Houston family have taken the line that Peter Laughton was a consenting male with their father Frank. In his early 20s at the time of his abuse in the early 1980s, Peter was over the age of consent which is 18 in Australia for consenting homosexual acts.

But is it ok before God for the most prominent AOG clergy in Australia and New Zealand, aged 58, to indulge in numerous sordid homosexual acts with his young worship leader?

At the time the homosexual liaison started Pastor Frank Houston was 58 and Peter was 20.

I fail to see how the Houston’s can dismiss this series of incidents with Peter Lawton so readily.

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male

Pastor Frank Houston. Total deviate and con-artist.

Pastor Frank Houston. Total deviate and con-artist.

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male.

Pastor Frank Houston was an active secret pedophile and homosexual particularly from the 1960s to the 1980s.

By 1990 he was 68 and his homosexual and pedophile libido seemed to have dropped off. I haven’t found any pedophile dirty old man Houston victims.

A reader of this site commented recently that he knew Frank Houston in the 1950s at Ellerslie AOG in Auckland, New Zealand. He wrote in a comment on this site that Pastor Frank Houston had fixation about male swimmers. There were some NZ Olympic swimmers training. A young Pastor Frank Houston used to go down to the local swimming pool to watch them training and perve on them.

If you knew Pastor Frank Houston at this time and you know of pedophile incidents could you please contact me. I suspect his pedophile activities started earlier than Lower Hutt AOG.

Frank Houston was sexually abused by his father

At the Royal Commission, Pastor Brian Houston told the Commission that his dad had been abused by his father. In fact this is no secret because Pastor Frank use to share about this from the pulpit at Christian Life Centre in the 1980s.

Pastor Frank Houston openly shared how his dad was very mean to him and his mum. That his dad had an affair with the woman next door and other bad stuff. The ABC of Psychology says that people who were sexually abused as children often go on to sexually abuse children when they are older/ become adults. That’s a big subject.

Peter Laughton spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald

If you google “Frank Houston” or “Frank Houston abuse” you’ll find plenty of transcript of detailed sordid accounts of Frank Houston’s sexual activities with Peter Laughton.

Peter has given interviews to the Sydney Morning Herald.

In these interviews Peter speaks honestly and candidly about the homo-erotic activities Frank Houston led him to do. It’s interesting yet very sad reading.

Please bear in mind that Frank Houston was aged 58, and the most prominent AOG clergy at the time, and he was abusing a vulnerable and needy young man aged 20 who was his Church worship leader. Heavy stuff indeed.

The investigation and being caught

The release of the official AOG Report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities is a document which would be helpful to the victims of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities. What is more important? Protecting Frank Houston’s legacy and reputation, the Houston name and Hillsong’s reputation, or allowing some healing and closure, not only to Frank’s numerous pedophile victims, but also to the countless others who were part of Christian Life Centre and Hillsong in the early days and who were deeply hurt and shattered by revelations of Frank’s secret activities.

Frank’s pedophile activities were not destined to remain a secret to his grave. By the late 90s the chorus of complaints was to become deafening. The AOG, and in particular, the then National Chief Executive Pastor Brian Houston, his son, were forced to investigate and do something about it.

Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst the second name for Hillsong

I personally knew Peter Laughton at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst.

Peter was very talented singer, song-writer and composer. A nice guy. Sensitive. Artistic.

No one had any idea that Frank Houston aged 58 and a revered pastor and his worship leader Peter Laughton age 20 were involved in a four year homosexual affair from 1980 to 1984.

Extraordinary talent

In those days Frank had gathered together some extraordinary musical talent.

Frank had recruited Pastor David Johnston from Los Angeles to found international Institute of Creative Ministries (IICM), a music, singing and dance Ministries School. David worked at Wesley College for decades since these times. David is a very talented pastor, violinist, composer and worship leader.

Trevor King was also there. Trevor now lives in Auckland,  New Zealand. Trevor is very talented on the piano and led the band and was the Music Pastor.

Geoff Bullock is another muso who owes his success to the Houstons. Unfortunately Geoff’s personal life became a train-wreck when his marriage fell over and his ministry has never recovered to the heights of his success under the Houstons. Particularly under Pastor Brian Houston.

Pastor Brian Houston is truly a king-maker. So much talent. So many scandals.

Peter- looking for father love

Peter Laughton is a really nice guy.

Outgoing, talented and sensitive.

In Frank, Peter has said that he was looking for father love. The kind of love Frank gave him was secretive, self-gratifying and impure.

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses 

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses that they find impossible to control. Their victims are really just objects of their desire. There is no care or love towards their victims. For the pedophile it is “all about me”.

I wrote another 13 articles, which are on this blog-site, on this subject of Pastor Frank Houston from 13 September 2012.

My memories of the man and what I experienced during the 1980s and 1990s while attending Hillsong Church.

I have written over 200 other articles on Hillsong and the Royal Commission.

Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

I have come to the conclusion that Pastor Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

To do what Frank Houston did to little boys and teens all his lifetime, while maintaining the front of a holy man of God is the very gravest of sins known to mortal man.

Since I wrote this article in September 2012, and since the Royal Commission examined the Houstons and Hillsong, Simeon Beckett, the Royal Commission barrister, publicly recommended in December 2014 that Pastor Brian Houston be criminally charged by the NSW Police for not reporting and for sheltering a pedophile, his old life-long pedophile father, Pastor Frank Houston, the  founder of the Hillsong organisation.

In October 2015 the Royal Commission recommended Brian Houston for prosecution in its Findings.
