This article was published on this site on 22 October 2014.

I knew Jeff Beacham, Barry Smith, Frank and Brian Houston and all the players at CLC Darlinghurst in the 1980s to 1990s.

Blog article of 22 October 2014

Early Hillsong

I was at CLC Darlinghurst, the second name and second location of Hillsong, from 1981 and knew Jeff Beacham.

Pastor Jeff Beacham formed an end-time prophet style ministry

In the 1990s, Pastor Jeff Beacham formed an end-time prophet style ministry based at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney. Former names: CLC Double Bay, CLC Darlinghurst. Later names: Hillsong City Church, Hillsong City Campus.

Jeff’s ministry was derived from Barry Smith, a self-styled end-time prophet from New Zealand.

Frank on Barry Smith: “Barry Smith fills the church coffers”

Although no intellectual, Barry had devised a complex system of end-time interpretation of the scriptures related to current events. Some people would write off Barry Smith as a misguided mad false prophet. Frank Houston liked Barry and gave him a lot of playing time at CLC Darlinghurst in the early days.

Although Frank liked Barry he secretly thought Barry was a bit of a looney. Frank told me, “Barry is a looney but the people love him. Every time he comes here, he packs in the crowds and fills the church coffers”.

Barry Smith was popular and filled the house at CLC Darlinghurst. Translate “filled the church coffers”. Frank told me Barry’s ability to draw the crowds, and intrinsically the cash, was a plus for Barry, “even if I don’t believe everything he says”.

Impressionable young people believed every word Barry said.

Barry Smith

Jeff was greatly influenced by Barry Smith, a fellow New Zealander and similar personality type to Jeff.

Barry died before his time. He was a tall solid man and he liked hamburgers and used to make negative jokes about health foods. He died from a heart attack.

Pastor Jeff Beacham or “Jeff” as he was commonly known, took over from Barry Smith and formulated his own end-time ministry.

Jeff Beacham

In those days, Jeff was a bit of a knock-about man. Like Terry Appel, a bricky who became a pastor at CLC Darlinghurst and operates on the Northern Beaches as a pastor. Terry Appel started ministry as a head deacon at CLC Darlinghurst.

Terry Appel was a kind of spiritual bouncer meets servant of God. Solid and strong but big-hearted behind that rugged exterior and gingery beard.

Similarly Jeff Beacham had a bit of a Sylvester Stallone edge but again he was good-hearted and well-intended.

After his formation of his End-Time ministry, the prophecies hadn’t come to pass as quickly as Jeff had thought, so he decided to focus on the Holy Spirit.

Jeff hooked up with John and Carol Arnott, who were having success in Toronto, Canada and he brought their “Catch the Fire” ministry to CLC at Waterloo, its current location. Its now called Hillsong City Campus.

Jeff Beacham

Jeff Beacham was an astute businessman, but Pastor Frank Houston, that old fox, was far craftier

Jeff Beacham was an astute businessman, but Pastor Frank Houston, that old fox, was far craftier. Jeff was born in the late 1940s but old Frank had been around 28 years longer.

Jeff Beacham had a large family to feed. Five kids. He was serving God, and Jeff is a very genuine guy, but a man’s got to provide for his family.

Jeff told me the following story in about 1998, before the Frank Houston pedophile scandal hit the fan. At the time of the story, Frank was still the great man of God. Highly respected and almost revered.

Jeff had been ripped off by that cunning old fox Frank Houston the first time he brought Catch the Fire to Australia. Jeff’s Ministry was independently incorporated to CLC Waterloo with no legal ties or obligations to CLC. But Jeff made the mistake of not setting up a bank account separate from the treasury of CLC.

The first Catch the Fire made a healthy profit and the profit was, by verbal agreement with Frank, supposed to go to Jeff’s ministry. But CLC were a bit short of cash as always, and Frank took the profit.

Undeterred, Jeff forgave old Frank and decided to stage a second Catch the Fire. This time, remembering his first experience with Frank, he got Frank to sign a contract with the profits going to Jeff’s ministry coffers.

The 2nd Catch the Fire was an even bigger success. It made a profit of $150,000, which was a decent sum in the late 1990s. Still is today.

Cunning old Frank eyed the profit and took it into the CLC coffers. Jeff was very upset about this and shirt-fronted Frank.

Old Frank said to Jeff, “Sorry, we need the cash”.

Jeff replied, “But Frank, you signed a contract”.

To this Frank retorted, “It doesn’t matter. If you don’t like it, sue me then”.

Jeff, who greatly respected Frank, although this respect was being severely tested, decided to forgive him, give it to God and move on. There was nothing that he could do about it.

Frank Houston was a crook of the highest order

Frank was a crook of the highest order. This was soon to be revealed when his secret homosexuality and pedophilia was exposed in 1999.

It’s taken another twenty years for everything about Frank Houston and Brian Houston to be exposed to the whole world.

Jeff Beacham died from throat cancer in 2013. He’d been a heavy smoker in the 1960s to 1970s when he was a rock musician in New Zealand.

Pastor Brian Houston has grown rich on Hillsong music royalties and from other church income sources such as “Love Offerings”, which can amount to hundreds of thousands each time Brian preaches or teaches at an American mega-church.

Brian needs to acknowledge, help and make large pay-outs to victims of his father’s abuse.

Brian should pay a net one million Australian dollar payout to each victim of his father’s abuse.

Hillsong have the means, they should do it.

Donald Elley of Bellingen September 13, 2021

Below is an article from mine of September 14, 2014 at the time Brian Houston appeared at The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

I have been writing on this site about Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston’s concealment of his father Pastor Frank Houston and Frank’s sexual abuse of hundreds, if not thousands of boy victims for over 60 years since 2012.

At the time I wrote the article below, I knew of 10 boy sex abuse victims of Frank Houston plus his worship leader at early Hillsong Peter Laughton with whom Frank had a secret homosexual affair. This was in 1980 to 1984.

My current count of known Frank boy victims is at least 17 although it is now impossible to arrive at a figure. I’m now thinking hundreds, if not thousands, maybe over 2000 boy victims.

Pastor Frank Houston

Pastor Frank Houston. Unclean hands.

Introductory Note:

Revision 31 October 2014:

The number of boy victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s sexual abuse is now 14 or more. I have unearthed 3 more victims since the blog article below was written.

Please see my article “Pastor Frank Houston. Part one. Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile activities” dated 13 September 2012 which is my first article on this matter and which I’ve updated to include the overall story and a list of victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s sexual abuse of mainly boys.

Donald Elley of Bellingen September 14, 2014

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is about to turn its attention to Pastor Frank Houston, the Hillsong Organisation and the Australian Christian Churches, another name for the Australian Assemblies of God Churches.

Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston, its head pastor and the successor to his father Frank Houston, Hillsong’s founder, constantly takes the position that Pastor Frank Houston committed a sole act of pedophilia on a boy in Lower Hutt New Zealand forty years ago. This is the official Hillsong stance.

In numerous blog articles on this site I’ve described in detail how this statement is not only not true but a lie, spin and a complete cover-up.

Pastor Frank Houston had a sexual taste for young men and boys. His orientation was for young males. Ten year olds, teens and vulnerable young men in their early twenties.

Please bear in mind that Pastor Frank Houston was the most senior Assemblies of God (AOG) pastor in New Zealand in the late 1960s and 1970s and in Australia in the 1980s and 1990s. He was revered as the god-father and founder of Hillsong and the most senior figure in the Pentecostal movement in Australia and New Zealand for three plus decades.

All this time Pastor Frank Houston was committing pedophile and homosexual acts against young male victims.

I have sympathy for his son Pastor Brian Houston, in the sense that I know him and have spent time with him in the 1980s. I fitted out Brian’s first office in Baulkham Hills Shopping Centre in 1983 and Brian took me to his first home, a humble small dwelling in a street of better larger houses. I knew Brian before he became a pastor in the early 1980s. I have watched his progress over the decades.

I can understand Brian’s desire to paint his dad in a better light. I can understand his unwillingness, even denial, about the truth.

Brian has said that he didn’t know about Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse of his young worship leader Peter Laughton, in the early 1980s. But Brian knows now.

Pastor Frank Houston invited Peter Laughton, his young worship leader, to be a boarder, with him and his wife Hazel, in the peaceful environment of their church-funded Lane Cove Apartment, overlooking the Lane Cove River. Frank said he would mentor him. Frank, who was 58, proceeded to seduce and molest Peter and molest him repeatedly. Google “Peter Laughton abuse” or “Frank Houston abuse” for the sordid details Peter shared with the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007.

The reality is that Pastor Frank Houston abused many more children, adolescents and vulnerable young men than the one Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston claim.

Here is the list of victims I know about which I’ve listed in chronological order.

They total 11 or more victims.

I suspect there are more. A lot more.

1. Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand. Pastor Frank Houston abused six ten year old boys. SUB TOTAL: SIX VICTIMS

Sources: 1. A relative, who is now a prominent New Zealand Christian counsellor, told me in 1990 his professional mentor was abused by Pastor Frank Houston and that there were a total of six boys who Frank Houston abused. 2. Stan and Sheila Carter, former members of Lower Hutt Assemblies of God. Sheila was an AOG missionary for decades and a very reliable source. There are people alive today in New Zealand who would know the facts. There was an investigation and a big fall-out. Pastor Frank, like all pedophiles, denied the allegations and attacked and expelled his accusers from his church, the Lower Hutt AOG, Wellington, New Zealand..

2. Lower Hutt New Zealand. Early 1970s. Pastor Frank Houston molested a 16 year old adolescent boy. SUB TOTAL: ONE VICTIM

Sources: This is well-documented. Peter Fowler has written on-line about what happened to him. The NZ AOG made a pay-out. Google “Frank Houston and Peter Fowler” for details.

3. South Australia. Pastor Frank Houston molested at least three boys. SUB TOTAL: THREE PLUS VICTIMS

Sources. Stan and Sheila Carter. (refer above). One of the victims wrote a comment on one of my blog articles on this site. He said he had been abused by Pastor Frank Houston at an AOG Church camp in South Australia and there were others. He wrote that there were many young 10 year old boys who were sexually molested by Pastor Frank Houston.

4. Sydney, Australia. Early 1980s. Pastor Frank Houston aged 60 abused his vulnerable worship leader, Peter Laughton, aged in his 20s. SUB TOTAL: ONE VICTIM

GRAND TOTAL ELEVEN OR MORE VICTIMS.

I hope the Royal Commission digs into the detail and gets to the truth about Pastor Frank Houston and the Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston spin and cover-ups.

It’s time the full truth came out and was acknowledged and owned by the Houston family.

It’s time Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston took responsibility for Pastor Frank Houston’s actions and took the following actions:

1. Locate and made a full acknowledgment and apology to all the victims.

2. Pay for professional counselling, for as long as they require it, for all victims. The counsellor to be a counsellor of the victims choice.

3. Pay a net one million Australian dollar payout to each victim of his father’s abuse.

Pastor Brian Houston, and his family and others, have enriched  themselves on the back of Hillsong’s success.

I’m particularly concerned about individuals taking of royalties from the sale of Hillsong albums, which has been going on for decades. This is in reality stealing from God. Pastor Brian Houston, his family and others have no right to do this. If we do stuff for God and in the name of God, then we shouldn’t steal money from it. It’s wrong in the sight of God.

There is so much wrong at Hillsong and the acknowledgement, help and payment of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile and homosexual victims is just one of many things that should be set right at Hillsong.

Acknowledging and helping victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile acts would be a good start.

Pastor Brian Houston has grown rich on Hillsong music royalties and from other church income sources such as “Love Offerings”, which can amount to hundreds of thousands each time Brian preaches or teaches at an American mega-church.

Brian needs to acknowledge, help and make large pay-outs to victims of his father’s abuse.

Brian should pay a net one million Australian dollar payout to each victim of his father’s abuse.

Hillsong have the means, they should do it.

Pastor Brian Houston. Grown rich on royalties and from other church income sources. Brian needs to acknowledge, help and make large pay-outs to victims of his father’s abuse. Hillsong have the means, they should do it.

Frank boy victim David Cowdrey from New Zealand:

“From the age of five into my teens I attended Lower Hutt AOG with my family.

My encounter with Frank was when I was 8 years old.”

This is an article of mine from October 19, 2014.

This was at the time of The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

At that time, this site had a lot of traffic when Brian Houston and other top Hillsong and ACC (Australian AOG) leaders appeared there by subpoena.

At this time a number of Frank Houston boy victims contacted me.

The article below is an introduction to a new Frank boy victim who contacted me then. I gave him the code-name WNZ1. At that time he was very shy about his identity and very much trying to come to terms with what Frank did to him.

Recently WNZ1 has revealed himself to the world as David Cowdrey from New Zealand.

I’ve been in touch with David Cowdrey by email for seven years since then. I gave David a voice to tell his story of what Frank Houston did to him as an 8 year old boy. He was lying in bed when Frank Houston, a respected AOG evangelist, sexually abused him. 

David Cowdrey has only vague memories of what happened and how often. It’s likely David was sexually abused far more and far more deeply than he can remember.

This is normal in child sex abuse

Donald Elley of Bellingen October 19, 2014

Brian Houston: I'm sorry the victims feel sad, very hurt and alone. I'll remember them in my prayers. Sorry I can't help the victims more.

Brian Houston: I’m sorry the victims feel sad, very hurt and alone. I’ll remember them in my prayers. Sorry I can’t help the victims more.

Here is the story of boy victim WNZ1. Wellington, New Zealand no 1. The abuse occurred at his parent’s home in a suburb near Tawa.

“Woe to him who interferes with a child. It would be better for a millstone to be fastened around his neck and for him to be flung into the deepest sea”.

Pastor Frank Houston. Pastor from hell.

Pastor Frank Houston. Lifelong secret pedophile.

Boy victim WNZ1’s story, exactly as he told it to me in an email last week.

Hi Donald

A bit about me…I went to Teachers College from 72-74 (attending Varsity part time) before Teaching for a year and a half then living a hippie lifestyle.

AB and I hung around Wellington together in the 70’s, walking the fine line between sin, repentance and sainthood. I’m afraid sex and drugs got the better of me for a time. I also hung around up at Kapiti during the late ‘70s with AB. He was (edit) a very close friend.

Here is my story. 

I discovered your blog earlier this year when working through childhood trauma with my counsellor. It was very helpful in providing background to my journey, enabling me to finally admit to myself that Frank was my abuser.

I’m 60 years old and the impact of the abuse involving Frank in my life has been significant. Despite appearing to be a successful corporate manager, I couldn’t sustain the facade. Inside I lived with fear, mistrust, anger and shame. I was depressed, lonely and isolated.

I sought comfort from my pain in unhelpful ways, compulsively pursuing and becoming involved in one relationship after another, sometimes having more than one sexual or emotional liaison at a time. I lived my life in compartments and feeling completely shut off from myself, God, my family and friends.

My broken life is testimony to the selfish acts of the sicko creep Frank Houston on an innocent boy.

From the age of five into my teens I attended Lower Hutt AOG with my family.

My encounter with Frank was when I was 8 years old.

My family lived in a Wellington suburb and my parents held a Saturday night prayer meeting which folk from Lower Hutt AOG attended.

Frank attended a few times and it was during these visits that the abuse occurred.

When I read of AHA’s experience in the Commission’s transcript, the details in the description brought everything back. I finally knew deep within me the true horror of what had happened all those years ago.

I recall feeling the weight of Frank on me, the breath in my face and my genitals being fondled.

I was completely paralysed with fear.

I could not speak. I was totally bewildered as to what was going on.

I remember this happening 2 or 3 times.

I tried to explain to my parents what had happened to me. I did not have the words to explain it.

They thought it was a nightmare. I knew differently.

I named this thing ‘the black shadow’.

I took a piece of wood to bed with me every night so I could defend myself or knock on the wall to alert my parents.

The problem was that when ‘the black shadow’ entered my room I was so fearful I could do nothing.

The incidents were not prolonged (although at the time the groping seemed to go on forever!).

I have come to realise that Frank would have excused himself to ‘use the bathroom’ and took a detour via my bedroom on the way.

I believe these incidents would have occurred more if my family hadn’t moved to Lower Hutt in 1962.

The prayer meetings were then held at the church and I don’t recall Frank visiting my home again.

I recently asked my father about the ‘incident’ with Peter Fowler in Lower Hutt where Frank had been accused of abuse. He said it was beyond his comprehension that Frank could have been guilty. He thought at that time, in his naivety that it was an ‘attack of the devil’. He was partly right – the devil was Frank!

A ‘minor’ incident occurred at lunch at the Houston’s when I was a pubescent boy. Frank pressed his leg into mine and had his hand on my thigh. I recall feeling extremely uncomfortable. Frank abused the trust of his children by abusing their friends. How depraved is that?

Another significant event in my life involving Frank occurred in 1969 when I was 15. I was sitting down the back of the church with Brian and Graeme Houston and some of the other youth at a Sunday night service.

We were chatting away during the sermon and Frank came all the way down the centre aisle from the pulpit and yelled at me to stand up. He then yelled at me “You fool!” and then turned to the congregation and continued saying “Fools like you are tools of Satan! I curse you!” He was in an absolute rage.

I still feel the pain and shame of that moment now – 45 years later. Not only was Frank a pervert he was a bully! All my life, from this moment forward I was filled with anxiety and unable to be direct with anyone in authority for fear of being shamed and/or humiliated.

Then the Jesus Hippie thing came along with lots of hugging. Frank would seek out young men to embrace. It was creepy. I still remember him pushing his crotch into me as we embraced in ‘brotherly love’!

Frank the Paedophile was a liar, full of cunning and deceit.

He was a very scary controlling man.

I am sure there are many more victims out there – both children and young adult. I suspect a number of people I knew in my teens and early twenties were victims of Frank.

My wife emailed Brian Houston in 2009 when I uncovered and told her of my abuse. He responded in a supportive way stating he had no knowledge of the abuse but that I was welcome to contact him to discuss it. I have not taken him up on his offer.

I have been granted long-term counselling stemming in part from my childhood abuse experience. I also attend a 12 Step programme which is helping repair my brokeness. I am lucky I have a supportive wife and family which I nearly lost.

I turned away from God for a long time. I am slowly learning to trust God with my life.

I remain angry about what Frank did. I still struggle to find a place of forgiveness in my heart for him.

Maybe Frank didn’t have this verse in his Bible…

But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea. Matthew 18:6.
Thanks Donald, for bringing the abuses of Frank to light.

Keep up the campaign.

Truth always wins in the end.

This is an article of mine from 2 February 2015.

 

Blog article 2 February 2015

 

Pastor Ken Harrison. The first General Superintendent of the New Zealand AOG not to be stained by either pedophilia or adultery since 1965, a period of almost 40 years.

Pastor Ken Harrison, the Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Church, Papakura, in South Auckland, took office as the eleventh General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God of New Zealand in 2003.

Pastor Ken Harrison was the first General Superintendent not to be stained by either pedophilia or adultery since 1965, a period of almost 40 years.

This single barren poignant fact is earth shattering and a great reproach on the name of Christ in New Zealand.

Pastor Frank Houston

The pedophile Frank Houston

Pastor Frank Houston was the 8th General Superintendent (top leader) of the Assemblies of God in New Zealand from December 1965 to June 1977, a period of eleven and a half years.

Pastor Frank Houston’s sins: Life long secret pedophile and homosexual.

For a full summary of Frank Houston’s pedophile history please read this article of mine on this site:

“Pastor Frank Houston. part 1. Frank’s Houston’s pedophile activities”, written on 13 September 2012 before the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Pedophilia was set up by former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

It sounds like New Zealand could benefit from a similar Commission.

 

Pastor Jim Williams

Pastor Jim Williams and Pastor Frank Houston. Almost certainly in a pedophile ring.

Pastor Jim Williams was the 9th General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in New Zealand was from October 1977 – 1985, a period of eight years.

Pastor Jim Williams sins: A secret pedophile. Sexual molestation of pre-adolescent AOG church girls. A serial adulterer with multiple women throughout his Christian ministry.

 

Pastor Wayne Hughes

Pastor Wayne Hughes was the 10th General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in New Zealand, from 1985 to February 2003.

Pastor Wayne Hughes sins: pedophile

After being forced to hand in his AOG ministerial credentials Pastor Wayne Hughes founded His Heart Ministries based in Auckland.

Due to his public disgrace and undisclosed extent of his pedophilia, Wayne Hughes had gone to ground. He does not have any presence on the His Heart ministries web-site. The Hughes family are now living by scamming money off innocent church-going Filipinos.

Wayne Hughes daughter Angela Hughes is the public face of His Heart Ministries. Wayne Hughes is involved behind the scenes.

Please do not give to His Heart Ministries.

I have been unable to locate a photograph of Wayne Hughes. If anyone has one please send it to me.

Angela Hughes His Heart Ministries. It is a blatant lie that Angela Hughes is the founder. I discovered Wayne Hughes founded this organisation long before Angela came along.

Conventionally speaking and out of the greatest respect for God, if we write an adjective before or after one of God’s Names, after I did then, we should use a capital letter on the first letter of that adjective.

A small point. The benefits and wisdom with Christianity and life are in grasping and applying the detail well.

 

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

 

In context:

Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness…

2 Timothy 2:15

 

My skills with words, writing and in knowing and understanding the Holy Bible and the ways of God weren’t established in five minutes.

It has taken a lifetime of tuition and diligence.

Dad wouldn’t take a backward step in the things of God. God’s causes. Dad and his evangelical ministerial colleagues and friends took on the liberals in the Presbyterian Church in the late 1960s and 1970s.

 

These are the types of men and woman we so need God to raise up in this generation, even if all my generation are sweep into the gutter.

 

When I think of the errant men of God who I have been writing about on this my personal blog-site since September 2012 I weep.

Literally weep.

Not feel like weeping. I weep.

 

My heart is in the greatest pain when I think about the carnage these errant men have caused.

 

I also get very angry about these men.

 

Frank Houston.

 

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of hillsong. Extremely corrupt life-long pedophile.

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of Hillsong. Extremely evil and corrupt life-long pedophile.

 

I started writing about Frank Houston on 13 September 2012 with my article on this site, ‘Pastor Frank Houston. part 1. Frank’s Houston’s pedophile activities’.

This article has been viewed by 16,000 people.

 

If you google ‘Frank Houston abuse’, it is the first article that will appear.

My article comes up ahead of Wikipedia, the Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald, ABC, London Daily Mail and other media.

It has been the first article if you google ‘Frank Houston abuse’ for over two years.

 

I started writing about Frank Houston, his pedophile activities and his many other faults, in September 2012 before the then Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

 

My articles were influential in the Royal Commission examining the Houstons, the ACC/ AOG and Hillsong church.

In fact Simeon Beckett, a leading Commission lawyer, quoted directly from the above article on Frank Houston when he outlined the history of the Assemblies of God and other introductory facts.

 

The Royal Commission has contacted me three times for information.

 

I introduced the Royal Commission to victim SA1 (my code name) and organised for him to give them a statement.

 

At that time in October last year, to my knowledge, no victims of Frank Houston were known to the Royal Commission in Australia apart from victim AHA from Coogee Beach, Sydney.

 

I also told them about victim WNZ1 from Wellington, New Zealand, who few people know. Only some immediate family, one pastor in New Zealand and me.

WNZ1 contacted me after reading my blog-site. The Australian Royal Commission have noted his existence.  They don’t need a statement off him because their brief is only to examine Australian cases of sexual abuse of minors (under 18’s).

 

The Royal Commission has uncovered 160,000 victims of Institutional Abuse of minors.

Staggering when you think that’s only the Institutional abuse. The problem of pedophilia is of epidemic proportions in Australia.

This man has never repented of crimes against God and man in the 1970s, including having oral sex multiple times with a series of three young church secretaries, including his right hand man’s daughter, spiritual and moral deception and trashing and dumping Queen Street AOG Auckland and running away to Perth.

 

Queen Street AOG was the largest church in Australia or New Zealand at the time.

The  greatest of sins.

Frank Houston was far worse but Neville Johnson is up there in the bad pastor dudes stakes.

Neville Johnson is still ministering from an internet site “Academy of Light’ in Perth, Western Australia, and in a teaching ministry.

Avoid Neville Johnson like the plague.

 

Jim Williams Serial adulterer

Jim Williams. Now dsenior pastor of...Don't go near the place.

This man is still ministering and should not be.

Jim Williams is another errant New Zealand pastor who should just go fishing or do gardening for old ladies and leave the Blessed Body of Christ, God’s Precious Jewel from Heaven, alone.

 

Jim Williams followed Frank Houston as the Head of the New Zealand Assemblies of God Church (AOG).

He was the 9th General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in New Zealand was from October 1977 – 1985, an eight year term.

Sydney James “Jim” Williams was born on 11 September 1935.

Jim Williams is a former pastor and former leader of one of the most influential churches in the Assemblies of God in New Zealand in Hamilton.

He is currently pastoring in Queensland, Australia.

Jim Williams became a published author with a work based on the book of Proverbs called “Wisdom – the missing link”, a book on handling pastoral problems.

One of the most difficult things he had to manage as General Superintendent was the fallout following the revelation of the financial and moral failure of Neville Johnson then pastor of the largest church in Australasia, the Queen Street Assembly of God.

 

Departure from New Zealand

Williams left for Australia in March 1989, the leadership of the AOG then passing to Pastor Wayne Hughes. In Australia Williams served in what was then known as the Garden City Church in Brisbane.

 

Adultery

In 1994 the Executive of the NZ AOG received a letter from the Australian Assemblies stating that Williams had been guilty of adultery while pastor at the Hamilton AOG Assembly.

Williams was replaced as Pastor of the Garden City Christian Church by his deputy Senior Pastor, Pastor Geoff Holdway. Pastor Holdway differed from Williams charismatic style by focusing on a more fundamental adherence and teaching of scripture. This was based on his background in the Baptist theological seminary with a much more Pentecostal emphasis on scriptural interpretation.

At this time Williams was pastoring in Australia.

He lost his Australian credentials, but these were eventually returned after a time of counseling.

However he remained barred from ministry in the NZ AOG due to a failure to make any efforts to put the matter right in New Zealand.

In 2000 it became apparent that the extent of his sexual impropriety was much greater than admitted to the Australian body.

His credentials in New Zealand were permanently revoked for adulterous offences and other indiscretions involving different women over an extended period of years.

Following this the Hamilton Assembly (Gateway Christian Centre) left the denomination.

 

Current Ministry

Jim Williams is no longer associated with the Assemblies of God in Australia, and is now pastoring a church The House of Praise in Springwood, Queensland.

Here is an article published in the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) on 4 August 2007. 

 

The writer David Marr is a gay man who writes for the SMH and who is interested in subjects like religion and organisations like Hillsong.

The first part of the article is about Tanya Levin’s book. Tanya is an ex-Hillsong lady who is now an atheist and a Hillsong watch type person.

Information about Peter Laughton, Frank Houston’s former young worship leader is in the second part of the article.

Peter Laughton was staying as a boarder with Frank Houston and his wife Hazel when the abuse occurred.

Although Peter was in his 20s he feels Frank Houston, who was 60, took advantage of him and abused him.

August 4, 2007

When a former member of the Hillsong congregation started asking hard questions, she was thrown out,

By the miracle of YouTube, we can take a helicopter ride over Sydney any time we like with Pastor Brian Houston as he lays out Hillsong’s Vision 2007. In a voice that has coaxed fortunes from the faithful, he talks prosperity, vision, growth and God’s strategy as the helicopter swoops down on the “beautiful piece of property” Hillsong bought last year in inner-city Rosebery for $28 million.

“I think the finances are where we’re going to have to have the greatest faith.”

His confidence is absolute that the mortgage will soon be paid. To a sceptical outsider, Houston looks oddly like Spike Milligan with cans on his ears and a microphone to his mouth as he looks down on the suburbs where Hillsong’s “state-of-the-art worship centres” are booming already or will soon be delivering the goods for Christ. He shrugs off ridicule. The nation’s most triumphant preacher lives in a world without doubt and without dissent.

“Jesus said a house divided against itself cannot stand,” Houston reminds the thousands who have viewed this film clip and left adoring messages behind. (“Please come to Sweden! We need ‘fire’ here!!!!!!!!!”) Authority is a big deal at Hillsong. You don’t mess with Brian or his wife, Bobbie. “The great strength of our church has always been our unity. A single vision is critical to where we’re going.”

So Tanya Levin is a problem. She asks questions. She wants explanations. She challenges the vision of Hillsong’s leadership. In short, she’s trouble.

Two years into writing People in Glass Houses, her insider’s account of Hillsong, she was finally – and literally – shown the door. “There is no debate within Hillsong,” she says. “That’s fundamentalism. It’s not open to free thought and question, not at all.”

The church wasn’t answering her emails about the book. Houston had ignored her calls. She defied orders not to turn up at the Castle Hill “campus”, until the night came when two security guards carried her from the church and “a very tall, handsome Maori man of about 24” called Dion walked her to her car.

“I cried at Dion,” she writes. “I told him about my dad, and faithfulness and loyalty … whatever kind of Hollywood angel he was dressed as that night, there would come a time when he would outlive the usefulness to the Firm. And then he would lose that simple genuine look he stared at me with. I told him to go home and read his Bible and go ask the preachers why it doesn’t match what they say. He listened like one does to the ravings of a lunatic and I made him listen because that’s his job.”

It was the end of a long affair that began when Levin was 14, the daughter of a banker and his Jewish wife who were brought to God by Billy Graham back in South Africa. The family turned up in the early days of what was to become the behemoth of Hillsong.

“My impressions in September of 1985 were of a bunch of nice people,” Levin writes. They waved their hands and spoke in tongues. Houston preached. “Even today,” she confesses, “when I hear Brian Houston’s voice I feel better.”

People in Glass Houses is a naked account of the joys of religious infatuation and the messy business of re-entering the real world as an adult five years down the track.

Levin fitted the Hillsong pattern perfectly: “There is a 50 per cent turnover every five years. Hillsong is renowned for having a very big back door.” The churning of people through the church is not something they talk about. “Or they say people don’t have the faith to hang on; they’re unable to take it through the tough times. It’s always the fault of the person. It’s never the fault of Hillsong.”

But the ties were deep. University and then a child took her away from the Hills for a decade. She returned as a single mother with a job as a social worker in a Salvation Army women’s refuge and something more than curiosity about the fate of her old church and the friends she still had there. “I’d go sporadically just to have a look.”

Rumours of scandal sharpened her interest. After one hugely popular pastor was expelled in 2001, Levin began asking questions about Brian Houston’s father, Frank – a preacher so powerful he was thought to be able to raise the dead – who was being accused on the internet of pedophilia. But Hillsong was in the dark.

Brian and Bobbie won a standing ovation from the congregation when they finally broke the news that old Frank had an unwavering love of God and deeply repented his moral failings. His crimes were not named that day. Levin was furious: “I had a near-irresistible urge to yell out like the boys used to do in the old days, ‘What did he DO, Brian?’ ”

Levin was asking questions again, this time to write this book. Frank was not her target. She set herself the task of explaining the inner workings of the most successful religious operation in Australia: the joy and despair of faith; the mass hypnosis of worship; the Jesus-centric remedies offered in Hillsong’s outreach programs for drug addiction, domestic violence, unemployment and homosexuality; the ideological submission of women; and the bleeding of money from the faithful.

Levin’s family is among the financial casualties of Hillsong. They’re out of the church now after more than 20 years and her mother’s sardonic joke is that People in Glass Houses might earn a little of their money back. Hillsong’s 19,000 members are expected to tithe – give a 10th of their income to the church – and make big donations on top of that. Levin wrote the book as a warning: “The intention was to tell people, ‘Hey, by the way, they’re taking your money.’ ”

A couple of years ago, Brian Houston boasted on ABC television that Hillsong’s income for the financial year 2004-2005 was $50 million. It’s tax-free, of course. Accounts are never published. Year after year, Hillsong’s music arm has albums high in the charts. When All of the Above faded after many months this year, Saviour King took its place. The earnings are enormous but the begging bowl is always out.

“It’s a corporate organisation being run by corporately trained people to achieve economic outcomes,” Levin says. “Economic outcomes are the new measure of spiritual success and sign of blessing. The fact that Brian Houston is driving a Harley is a sign that God is looking upon him favourably.”

For Levin, the core lie of Hillsong is the claim that God will repay everything you give. And the longer you have to wait, the greater the return. “How do you actually stand in front of people and say if you give me your money God will give it back to you – and actually sleep at night when you’re taking old people’s money? It’s obviously the more desperate people who want to make an investment decision like that. Very vulnerable people.”

Four or five years ago Levin typed “ex born again Christian” into Google and found that “from Sweden to Nevada and back again there were people with the same story”. They are welcomed into a small, warm, friendly congregation with one or two charismatic preachers. But a few years later they’re out the door: “Kicked out and told they are the work of the devil.”

That early friendliness is part of the big sell. “They don’t preach against much. There’s a new movement that’s come through America called Seeker Sensitive – in other words we want people who come into our church to feel comfortable. And we want to be sensitive to their needs. So we won’t say anything too outrageous and we’ll tone the whole thing down.”

But tough rules – often about sex – are waiting to be enforced. “Painted into a corner, they’re explicitly homophobic, but up to that point they don’t want to be seen as an unfriendly, judgmental place. They want to be seen as warm, inclusive, loving, embracing. But they’re not. They are of their own kind: if you’re in the system and you behave accordingly, the system will reward you.”

Levin thought that with so many casualties of the system around, writing the book would be easy. “What I found – and what other media have found – is that it’s almost impossible to get other people to come forward and talk about this. People will write things on websites, they will send emails: ‘I’ve been through this, I’ve done this, I can help you, I know these things, I am the voice of expertise.’ Then they disappear again because it’s too painful and it’s too confrontational.”

Hillsong won’t comment on the result.

“We have no control over what people decide to say and write,” Brian Houston says. “We keep our focus on helping people with hope in Jesus Christ.”

But Levin has a fair idea what they’re thinking out in the Hills. “Bobbie Houston announced at the Colour Your World conference in 2005 that there the only three types of media about Hillsong. They are the positive, the neutral and the anti-Christ.”

Levin doesn’t fit that picture. She doesn’t hate. Something in her seems to yearn for those exhilarating years fighting the good fight against the devil in all his disguises right down to the voodoo beat of rock’n’roll. “We were told you can’t have it because it’s incantation and you’re going to raise all these demons.” How different things are now. Levin begins to sing some Hillsong Christian trance music: “Doof, doof, doof. Christ is the future. Doof doof doof …”

Is she entirely free of the place? If Houston rang today and asked her to dinner, would she go?

“Yes, very much so. My main aim is to keep the dialogue open. To encourage questions. To encourage debate. And when somebody or a group of people make you feel like family for a number of years, it’s difficult to shake that feeling even when reality tells you something different, and when relationships break down. Go do dinner with Brian?” She laughs. “It would be nice.”

 

A fallen leader of faith

FRANK HOUSTON was a charismatic preacher and a sick man. He won famous souls for Hillsong – jockey Darren Beadman was one of his scalps – and sexually abused young men.

He was about 60 when he undertook to cure 23-year-old Peter Laughton’s homosexuality. “My counselling sessions by the senior minister were nothing more than sexual abuse disguised in the form of the need of a father’s love and discipline,” Laughton says. “Through my naivety, I endured the naked beatings, the eternal bum caresses and masturbating into bottles, among other things.”

Laughton was training to be a pastor. He says the abuse continued for about four years until 1984. “I look at it now and think, ‘God, I was really naive to fall for that.’ ” And believing himself cured, he married.

Laughton’s faith went first. He tells the Herald that before leaving the church in the early 1990s he gave an account to another pastor of the abusive therapy he’d received. But as far as Laughton is aware, no action was taken against the old man until he was forced into retirement by his son Brian after an allegation of pedophilia emerged in about 2000.

Houston denies categorically knowing of any claims of sexual abuse by his father before this time. He initiated a church investigation, which saw the old preacher’s credentials permanently removed. “I was completely devastated by the realisation that my father had hurt people in this way, and I believed it related to events more than 30 years before when he was a New Zealand credentialled pastor. Until recently I knew nothing of Peter’s claims.”

Laughton took a long time to come to grips with his sexuality. He’s now a university lecturer in his early 50s who finds it in himself to forgive Frank Houston. “Despite all his downfallings I think he was genuinely a good person. It is an important part but it still is only one aspect of a person’s life. I’ve come through the other side and appreciated how this man was trapped like many of us were in a system and in a place where you couldn’t really even talk about what you were struggling with.”

Burying his father in 2004, Houston declared him a man who made mistakes but a preacher “in a class of his own”.

My comments:

From 1981 to 1990 I was involved at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst, which is now called Hillsong Church.

Frank Houston was the head pastor and the founder of Hillsong Church in 1977.

He came over from New Zealand, in the guise of church planting, but he was really a crafty old pedophile who felt the noose tightening on his pedophilia activities which he’d been doing for decades in New Zealand, while at the same time being a very prominent AOG pastor.

Frank Houston is a devil, a son of lucifer of old, who preyed on and molested little boys, teens and older men all his life.

 

On this site you’ll find over 100 articles on Frank Houston, his pedophilia, his very corrupt son Brian Houston, Hillsong Church, the Australian Christian Churches which was until 2009 called the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG), the New Zealand Assemblies of God and errant Pentecostal pastors in Australia and New Zealand.

For a summary of Frank Houston’s pedophile history please read my article on this site, ‘Pastor Frank Houston, Part one. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities’, published on 9 September 2012.

 

Peter Laughton was the young Worship Pastor at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst in the early 1980s.

There is no way possible anyone at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst could have known what Frank Houston and Peter Laughton were up to. I’d heard allegations of Frank Houston’s pedophilia back in New Zealand and I always had a half-eye on him in this respect but you’d never have picked it

Trevor King was the Music Director.

In 1981 Brian Houston wasn’t a pastor. He was extremely ambitious and very pushy. He wanted to go places and make it big. Its a pity he didn’t get born again properly, receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, deal with his lust for money and power, get deliverance and get a godly foundation in his life of truth, honesty and good morals before he set out to conquer the world for his Jesus.

 

Brian Houston’s Jesus is no closer to the Lord Jesus Christ of the New Testament than some statue of the black Jesus in Southern Italy with its holy red heart open to mankind.

How did Peter Laughton think that was going to heal him and make him feel like he had a dad..haha..holy haha”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “But this is a serious subject. Peter Laughton felt abused”. Saint Copulator II: “Bobby Bobby fair eternal virgin of the night. Where is my black Jesus that I bought in Positano?”. Bobby: “In your private chapel along with the pictures of your blessed father saint francis, your mother Hazel dear and the myriad golden candles burning 24/7″.

Beverly Houston, Brian Houston’s sister: “Donald (who ever you are) give me a call”

 

The following remarkable and highly insightful comments by Beverly Houston, Pastor Brian Houston, the current head pastor of Hillsong Global’s, sister, were made on 16 December 2014.

 

Blog article of 17.12.2014.

Beverly Houston got angry last night about me and my articles about her dad Pastor Frank Houston, self-confessed pedophile and her brother, Pastor Brian Houston, pedophile shelterer and protector, and rejector of his father’s numerous boy victims.

I think Beverly might have been on the house-wife’s sweet remedy (again).

Last time Beverly got angry she let fly with another batch of comments.

The Houston sisters can get quite fiery.

This time Beverly wrote numerous comments on my blog site.

 

Here they all are published unedited:

Beverly Houston’s comment about my article written on 7 October 2012, “Pastor Frank Houston. Part 2. Pedophile. Frank’s Jackyl and Hyde persona”.

Hope you are all enjoying your witch hunt of Brian Houston, it is not going to help victims of my father. Get real you grow up to think your father is an awesome person and then you find out all this, it takes years to comprehend it. I don’t believe in God but if I did I think you would be all condemned to hell. Think somewhere in the bible it talks about the log in your eye!! You can condemn Brian all you like but I guess at the end of the day he has been a victim of his father too and as sad as I feel for AHA, attacking Brian is not really going to help him heal. I think maybe he should be looking at his mothers position on this!! Very sad.

I don’t have much to say about Peter Lawton, except very different situation, he was a consenting adult!!

Hey Donald (who ever you are) just want you to know you are an awesome fuck wit. Are you getting some notoriety out of this, can’t see how in any way this is of help to victims of my father. I do not believe in God, but if I did I would see you as the biggest hypocrite out. You should do some research in to Stan Carter, I have childhood memories!!! Condeming/jailing Brian is not going to help victims, and yes as a family member we are victims too!! Can you imagine the father you looked up to did this, it takes a long time to believe and accept it and yes we feel very sad for AHA but unfortunately his misplaced anger at Brian is not going to help him heal, should have done it before my father had dimensia and made him face up to his own sins, sorry it’s a witch hunt, they weren’t Brian’s sins!!! Just want to say your a hero!!

I feel very sorry for AHA, I remember him, but he hasn’t tried to track any of us, unfortunately I go by the name of Houston and I’ve never heard from him, if I did I (like Brian) would do any thing to try and help him, I don’t have any money but would try in other ways!! Hate the way you are trying to make my family pay for the sins of our father, Brian included and yes we have all suffered post traumatic syndrome, not that you would understand that cause you are HELPING down trodden people, your awesome!!

 

Brian included and yes we have all suffered post traumatic syndrome

Beverly Houston’s 1st comment about my article written on 9 December 2014, “Pastor Frank Houston part 11: should Pastor Frank Houston be honoured in any way”?

Love the way you are all are so virtuous!! Yes apparently my father was a pedophile and for that I feel very sad, but you know what, we were children (including Brian) and yes it has taken us some time to realise these accusations are true because we loved and adored him, but when I read these messages, even though I don’t believe in God I find it amazing the witch hunt on Brian and just want to say you are all amazing christians and I think this is an amazing witch hunt and why is it that this Donald (who ever he may be ) never reported it sooner and maybe could have protected someone, just saying!!! Moron!

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc. Did he commit these crimes, no he didn’t and he is like the rest of my family trying to come to terms with it it. Get a life as much as I feel sorry for AHA we are suffering to, ask him has he tortured his mother over her disgusting response, put that in the media,absolutely disgusting!! So over this!

 

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc

 

Beverly Houston’s comment no 4 about my article written on 30 October 2014, “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston. Part 33. Honouring victim SA1 the first South Australian boy victim of Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse”.

Brian didn’t try to hide anything, he actually didn’t know, just like all my family and amazingly other people knew (NZ AOG) but you know it’s the usual witch hunt, but you are all amazing christians and when you go to heaven I’m sure you will score brownie points for this. and do you really think AHA will be healed by demonising Brian, I don’t think so, he wasn’t the perpetrator and AHA was 7-12yrs old and Brian has a very different memory of it believe it or not, but he like the rest of my family have no desire to protect our father from the terrible things he did. I am so over this shit Donald that you are portraying Brian as not wanting to pay victims (even though they weren’t his victims), the royal commission is nothing to do with compensation, another one of your attention seeking tactics. Just want to remind everyone that you knew about it before we did and let it go on and now you are trying to make my family look bad, god bless you your awesome I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

 

I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

 

My comments:

Beverly supplied me with her mobile phone number. I’ll bear it in mind. If I ever feel like calling someone to be abused.

It’s always a pleasure to have Beverly Houston as a guest on my blog site. Her comments became less coherent, but more passionate as the sauce bit in. But that’s OK. Anytime Beverly. It was nice to hear from you again.

I’d now like to have Beverly’s virtuous brother Brian on this blog-site.

They split up in March this year after many years together. They were engaged to be married at Hillsong NYC and head pastors Carl Lentz and Joel Houston supported their relationship. Josh: “Our relationship isn’t yet consummated”. Whatever that means…Thank for sharing that with the world Josh. Josh and Reed also hosted a Hillsong NYC Bible study group in their apartment. They were planning to marry at Hillsong NYC this year. Head pastor of Hillsong Global Brian Houston told the media this year, “Gay marriage at Hillsong is inevitable in the near future”.

Hillsong's gospel of greed and avarice.

Hillsong’s gospel of greed and avarice. Hillsong and Bobbie and Brian Houston: “Shaking under the power of the mighty dollar.”

 

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the 13th in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Today I’m going to take extracts from each of the first five articles in this series, and then make overall comments about them.

 

Five Extracts:

Part one: ‘Pat Mesiti’s adultery with a young Hillsong worship leader and with prostitutes’.

 

pat mesiti1114b_pro

 

Pat Mesiti confesses: “I was a sex addict”.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church”.

 

"Pastor" Pat Mesiti convicted wife basher going to court a couple of weeks ago. Convicted of common assault. Due in Parramatta Court Sydney on 23 March for sentencing.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong Global Church and C3 Global,Church. Close friends of head pastors Brian Houston and Phil Pringle the head pastors of these two Australian-based mega-churches. Convicted wife basher going to court earlier this year. Convicted of common assault. His second wife Andrea divorced Pat this year for seeing other women behind her back including prostitiutes. Pat’s excuse is always, “I’m a sex addict” This has been going on for 16 years but Brian Houston and Phil Pringle keep pardoning Pat and letting him back in as a pastor. the damage Pat has caused to women all over Australia is incredible but Brian Houston and Phil Pringle don’t think of that. Instead they look after their own.

 

 

Part two: ‘My questions to do with Pat Mesiti’s adultery with a young Hillsong worship leader and with prostitutes’.

My comments on Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes and a young worship leader, his current wife no 2:

My questions raised in part two of this series of articles asking various questions about the above information from the Hillsong insider about Pat Mesiti.

“Firstly, why hasn’t Hillsong informed us, the Body of Christ, or even its own members, or even the pastors in the Australian Assemblies of God movement (AoG) or even its own pastors at Hillsong of the facts about what Pat Mesiti did?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card?”

“But when a man is not only a Christian, but is a very prominent Youth Pastor preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, is going to a brothel on a Church credit card wrong?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card when you’re a famous trusted Christian Youth evangelist preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, including Donald Elley of Bellingen’s older children?”

“So what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and cheated on his wife with a young Hillsong worship leader, at the same time? An unholy mess. And should he have been ‘restored’ by Pastor Phil Pringle, the CEO of C3 international Church, which has it’s headquarters on Sydney’s Northern Beaches?”

“Firstly, what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and also cheating on so wife with a young attractive female worship leader?”

“What does the New Testament in the Holy Bible say about famous pastors who do very public sexual sins like Pat did?”

 

Part three: ‘The day a lesbian was roughed up by Hillsong pastors and thrown out the Hillsong door’.

 

Lesbians

Lesbians: Should Hillsong Church Pastors rough up lesbians and toss them out the Hillsong door?

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“In 2005 Hillsong City pastors, Pastor Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren, manhandled and abused a young lady at Hillsong City Church, who was gay. She was told, “your type is not needed here at Hillsong”.

She was sitting on the floor of the Hillsong City Church front foyer, with her back to the wall. This incident took place as the church sermon was going on. Pastor Brian Houston was preaching. It was at the 5pm service.

Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren spoke to her, and in her defence, after being told “a lesbian is gay and not needed here at Hillsong”, they went to grab her and manhandle her to the front door.

The lady at this time was sitting on the floor. As the pastors tried to get hold of her, by extreme rough handling, she said, “Please stop, you are hurting me”.

Pastor Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren were saying, “It’s time to go lady lover”.

She slapped the pastor so hard that the crack was heard inside the auditorium.

The two pastors gave this women no rights of removal under the act, and twisting her limbs behind her back, they pulled her up. She was yelling abuse at the pastors. She was taken outside and then thrown to the ground outside the door. By this stage she was a crying mess and she was bleeding a little. She would have gotten bruising after all this rough handling. I didn’t see her return.

This was one incident where the reports were shredded or never made. This lady was acting in self-defence. Yes the lady was gay, but this was plain bullying and rough handling, whatever you like to call it.

I saw this all happen and did not a thing. I was told by Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren, “It’s not your place, we will handle it”.

The security team can be very rough, and they can be very aggressive, doing pay-back and stuff like that. They can be very aggressive in protecting Hillsong and throwing out dissenters like this poor lesbian who got shown the door. They also spy on people and track them. For example Tanya Levin, the Hillsong watch lady”.

 

Part four. Extract one. ‘The Hillsong culture: Bullying, intimidation, fear and cult-like activities’.

Pastor Steve McGhie

Pastor Steve McGhie. Great White Hunter. Bully. No Christian heart of compassion. Tough guy. Hates Australian Aborigines and tosses them out the Hillsong door. Also tosses gays out the Hillsong door. I have some more Steve McGhie stories…watch this space.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“All Hillsong leaders and Hillsong security have photographs of Tanya Levin. Hillsong can’t stand Tanya Levin.

Whenever Hillsong leaders or Hillsong security spot Tanya Levin near a Hillsong event or a Hillsong church, Hillsong security goes into overdrive. Photographs of her and what she is wearing go out to every Hillsong Security staff member and to every Hillsong church leader in Australia.

If Hillsong knows a dissenter is out and about, Hillsong security will send someone to track their every move. They do this to Tanya Levin every time.

They watch what Tanya does, who she speaks to and it all goes into a report. Hillsong pastors go and talk to anyone Tanya has spoken to, to get information on what the conversation was about, and then the Hillsong church member who spoke to Tanya gets a debrief and a warning about her.

Hillsong Security leadership teaches teams of people how to do this and how to pass on sightings and write Hillsong security reports.

The Hillsong Head of Security reports to Pastor Steve McGhie, Pastor Brian Houston’s brother-in-law, who is Brian’s fix-it man and henchman.

 

Part four. Extract two: Pastor Brian Houston has a bad temper.

 

Pastor Brian Houston

Pastor Brian Houston. Has a foul temper.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

Pastor Brian Houston has a bad temper. Once he was in a hurry, running late, and the lifts at Hillsong were too slow. Brian lost it and punched a hole in a gyprock wall adjacent the lifts.

In his mind Brian Houston acts and thinks like, “I’m the great Brian Houston”.

 

Part five: ‘The Marks of the Hillsong Church Culture: mate-ship, money, amorality and poor Christian moral ethics’.

 

Joel Houston. Spiritually corrupt. Part of a spiritually bankrupt dynasty. The grandson of a lifelong pedophile. The son of a pedophile protector. Up to his gills in Hillsong money scams. Milking the Blessed Body of Christ of every cent they can get their grubby hands on.

Joel Houston. Brian Houston’s son. Frank Houston’s grandson. Spiritually corrupt. Part of a spiritually bankrupt dynasty. The grandson of a lifelong pedophile. The son of a pedophile protector. Up to his gills in Hillsong money scams. Milking the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Body of Christ, of every cent they can get their grubby Houston hands on.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“Pastor Steve McGhie and his wife Judith (Brian Houston’s sister) are the most corrupt people in the Hillsong church.

Steve McGhie has a hatred towards Aboriginals. He treats them badly and has rough-handled them at times, when they’ve misbehaved inside Hillsong premises at Waterloo. (Hillsong City Campus).

Pastor Joel A’Bell, formerly a Hillsong Youth Pastor, and now head of Hillsong Australia, is a snake. He’ll be nice to you and stab you in the back. Pastor Joel A’Bell has a love of power”.

It’s all ‘jobs for the boys’ at Hillsong. An “if you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” culture, where morality and ethics take a second place.

Mateship and nepotism are the currency of the Hillsong culture. This culture revolves around money and finance. Pastor Joel Houston, Pastor Bobbie and Brian Houston’s eldest son, before he became prominent in the Hillsong Youth Band, and later become co-pastor at Hillsong New York City, had a printing business. He was given all of Hillsong’s printing business which is massive. This is blatant shameless nepotism.
There was a big fallout between Darlene Zschech and Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston before Darlene and her husband Mark left Hillsong to form their own church on the Central Coast, an hour north of Sydney. Darlene didn’t want the high rock and roll Hillsong was getting into under its Hillsong Alive band run by Pastor Joel Houston. Darlene wanted worship to be more worshipful and she wanted to be there for the people. Pastor Brian Houston is led by money not love for people. Pastor Brian Houston, his wife Bobbie and his son Joel wanted the high rock and roll. Now Hillsong has to beg and scrap to Darlene if they want her to sing, because they want to trade on her name still in their promotions by having her sing occasionally for them.

In respect to Bobbie Houston, Pastor Brian Houston’s wife, I don’t know how Brian puts up with her. She’s just a nag. Bobbie is a princess who can do whatever she wants. In fact at one Colour Conference she said, “This is my conference and I’ll do whatever I like”. Who pays for Bobbie’s cosmetic surgery? Hillsong does.

Hillsong is just corporate now. It’s about business, business, business. It’s a job for the full-time staff rather than a Christian ministry of heart-felt service, like the Lord Jesus Christ wanted the Church of Jesus to be.

Joel Houston is a bit of a fool. Joel’s best mate made out he had terminal cancer and achieved fame throughout Australia for it. His name is Michael Guglielmucci. Then he was found out to have lied about it.

Joel is out for fame. I knew Brian’s kids in the pram. All the Houston kids are power-mad. All their spouses married into money.

Joel Houston has an immense sense of entitlement. Joel’s attitude is “I’m in Hillsong. I’m Brian Houston’s son”.

All the young Hillsong City church pastors have homes and apartments in the beach-side Eastern Suburbs of Sydney bought with Hillsong church financial assistance. If they need money to buy an apartment, cash gets put into their account to help them get the loan, and then it is moved out once the loan is approved. All the young pastors at the Hillsong City Church get helped in ways like this. It’s “jobs for the boys”. Hillsong Bible College teaching is all about the Hillsong business and about milking the system.

Brian Houston has a very bad temper. His overall attitude is “I’m the great Brian Houston”. Bobbie and Brian Houston live a life of luxury and excess.

“Hillsong keeps records on members, just like a cult”.

 

My comments:

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen

 

These extracts from the first five articles in this series demonstrate that “The spirit that is on Hillsong isn’t the Holy Spirit”.

In the late 1990s I returned to Hillsong City Campus. It was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney in those days, which is the third name for Hillsong. The first name was Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst, known as CLC Darlinghurst or CLC Darlo for short. Australian’s shorten many words. ‘Darlo’ for Darlinghurst, ‘arvo’ for afternoon, ‘smoko’ for morning tea, ‘see ya’ for “I’ll see you later” or “goodbye”, and so on. ‘Pedo’ for pedophile seems to be an oft used term in relationship to Hillsong these days.

Pastor Frank Houston, the self-confessed life-long “pedo” or pedophile, Brian Houston’s father, founded Hillsong in Sydney’s eastern suburbs in 1977.

Brian and Bobbie Houston joined him soon after as did Ian Carlisle and Maureen, one of Brian’s three sisters and her first husband. Later about 1990, Steve McGhie and Judith, Brian’s youngest sister, migrated to Sydney from New Zealand to join them all.

Brian and Bobbie Houston have three children. Joel, Ben and Laura.

Wikipedia

Brian Houston

edit: The Wikipedia article about ‘Brian Houston’ and ‘Hillsong Church’ reads like they were written by Hillsong. In fact, Hillsong has a large and very busy PR, IT and Security department who ensure everything about Hillsong on the internet and social media that Hillsong can control is carefully manipulated and manicured exactly how they want it.

 

Wikipedia. Brian Houston:

‘Brian and Bobbie Houston’s home is in the suburb of Glenhaven, Sydney.

Houston’s three grown children, Joel, Ben, and Laura. Ben and Laura currently live in Sydney.

Joel is married to Esther, they have a son. Joel is a musician, a songwriter, and Hillsong Church’s creative director. As of 2010, he co-pastors Hillsong New York with Carl Lentz.

Ben is married to Lucille and they are the Lead Pastors of Hillsong Los Angeles. They have three daughters.

Laura married Peter Toganivalu in 2008, and they have one daughter and one son. Laura, along with her husband Peter are pastors of the senior high youth ministry Wildlife. Laura also oversees the youth music/worship ministry known as ‘Young and Free’. Previously she was involved with the church communications team, which included overseeing artwork and design’.

 

My comments:

So all three Houston children, Joel, Ben, and Laura, are ‘in the ministry’. One might add, ‘in Hillsong ministry’.

The Houstons are very dynastic like a lot of other high profile and extremely wealthy Australian families. Take the Packers or the Murdochs for example. Gretel and James Packer, the two children of Kerry Packer, have recently split their inheritance in two. Lachlan, James and Elizabeth Murdoch, the children of Rupert Murdoch from his first marriage, and his primary heirs, are all working for, and looked after, by Rupert Murdoch and News Corporation.

So it runs with the Houstons. They’re all ‘in the ministry’. They’re all looked after by mummy and daddy. They all have luxury apartments in Bondi, personally owned in tax-free Hillsong church trust accounts to avoid capital gains and other taxes.

The Houstons had better be careful with their clever tax avoidance tricks, or the Australian Taxation Department may do another  audit of them, just as they did recently with the Obeids, another Sydney dynastic family.

What has also been passed on and inherited from momma and papa Houston, as the Hillsong crowd like to affectionately called them, or Bobbie and Brian Houston, as we know them, are their bad habits and personal demons.

Bobbie, a self-proclaimed princess of note, a self-confessed sex addict like Pat Mesiti, except, to my knowledge, she restricts her passions to Brian. Botox queen. “A nag” to Brian, according to the eye-witness observation of the Hillsong Insider. Loves luxury clothes, the jet-set lifestyle, holidays at plush European hotels paid for by Hillsong, botox, breast lifts, nips and tuck- all paid for by Hillsong tithes. Princess mentality. The Hillsong insider says that Bobbie Houston’s ego is out-of-control. That she has mega tickets on herself. That Bobbie is a complete princess who always gets her way around Hillsong Church.

 

Bobbie Houston. Married into a very corrupt family.

Bobbie Houston. Mrs Brian Houston. Botox Queen. Self-proclaimed princess. In on all the scams of Hillsong Church.

 

Brian, the King or Pope of Hillsong, who rules with an iron fist but he can’t control his physical and spiritual children. What wealthy man can control his children when they become free-wheeling wealthy adults? It’s a recipe for disaster: wealth, entitlement and freedom and no Holy Spirit to help keep things Biblical and in order.

 

Saint Copulator II, otherwise known as Saint Petropoulos of Hillsong Baulkham Hills or Pope Pete for short. Never call him Brian or he won't answer.

Brian. The Pope of Hillsong.

 

Take this comment on this site by a man Rob on 13 March 2013:

“All of Frank Houston’s children think they’re royalty. They all covet wealth, lavish lifestyles, and fame. Strange, you’d think they would realise the scriptures speak against all of those things, but they think they’re above the rules that apply to the peasants, after all, they’re the “special ones”. Short sighted, when you consider eternity…..”

In the late 1990s I returned to Hillsong City Campus. It was called CLC Sydney in those days. One Wednesday night I went to a worship service at Hillsong Baulkham Hills, in their current premise. I felt what I thought was a very strong anointing but it was dark and it didn’t feel right.

Friends, what I was sensing wasn’t the Holy Spirit.

At Hillsong there is a very strong anointing, but it’s not the Blessed Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus. It’s something else.

The spirit over Hillsong churches world-wide is earthly sensual and devilish. It’s from below. it’s from the pit of hell. It was conceived in the womb of satan, injected supernaturally into the founder of Hillsong, Frank Houston, at an early age. He was born in 1922 the same year as the greatest Holy Spirit Revival in Wellington, New Zealand led by one of the greatest healing evangelist of all time, Smith Wigglesworth.

 

A History of the Charismatic Movements in New Zealand, by James E. Worsfold p112-114

NEW ZEALAND May-June 1922

EVANGELIST WIGGLESWORTH MINISTERS IN WELLINGTON

Smith-Wigglesworth. One of the greats who has gone before us

Smith-Wigglesworth. One of the greats who has gone before us.

 

My comments:

Smith Wigglesworth was at the prime of his ministry at the time. The heavens opened and the Holy Spirit came down. The meetings ended up in the Wellington Town Hall and there were amazing miracles night after night. The whole city was set alight.

After this mighty revival four men were born who would wreck the fruits of Smith Wigglesworth’s Holy Spirit Revival in New Zealand.

These were Frank Houston, Neville Johnson, Ian Bilby and Jim Williams.

 

Frank Houston. Born April 22, 1922, New Zealand.

Note: 1922 was the year of this Holy Spirit Revival brought to New Zealand by Smith Wigglesworth.

In other words, Lucifer of old counter-sowed the Wellington, New Zealand Revival with the birth of Frank Houston, followed by the birth of a collection of other deviates who were destined to lead the new Zealand and later Australian Assemblies of God movements.

Smith Wigglesworth was known as God’s Apostle of Faith. He ministered in the Elim and Assemblies of God denominations, but he remained independent of any denomination.

These are the errant corrupt men who the devil used to counter-sow the New Zealand Revival in Wellington.

 

Pastor Frank houston, Brian's dad. Lifelong secret pedophile. Eyes as black as Hades.

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of Hillsong. Brian Houston’s dad. Lifelong secret pedophile. Eyes as black as Hades.

 

Frank Houston. Life-long secret pedophile and homosexual.

Head of the New Zealand AoG and later the Australian AoG for decades.

Only exposed as a lifelong secret pedophile and banned when he was 77 in 1998/ 1999.

Died in November 2004.

The pedophile Frank Houston, who used the Christian ministry as a foil and disguise, sexually abused 200 to 400 boys and some teens over his whole lifetime from when he was a teen.

Preferred victims: young innocent boys aged 7 to 12.

Frank Houston never got jail time because his son, Pastor Brian Houston, current CEO of Hillsong International, didn’t report him to the police and sheltered him for five years until his death.

These are criminal offences under New South Wales and Australian laws.

Brian is waiting to see if he will be criminally charged with these offences. If convicted he could be sent to jail. In fact this is likely.

 

Simeon Beckett, the barrister for Hillsong’s time at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has recommended to the NSW Attorney General’s Department that Brian Houston be criminally charged with these offences.

 

Pastor Jim Williams with his long-suffering wife

Pastor Jim Williams with his long-suffering wife Betty. Jim Williams. Pedophile. Adulterer. A Fraud. Possible part of a pedophile ring with Frank Houston. They definitely helped each other and protected each other. They must have known the other was a deviate.

 

Jim Williams. Serial adulterer and secret pedophile.

Born 11 September 1935, New Zealand. Serial adulterer and secret pedophile.

Caroline Andrews commented on this site recently that Jim Williams, who died in June this year, was a pedophile who sexual abused her when she was an innocent trusting tender 12 years old.

Jim Williams sexually abused her for three years when she was only 12 and he was 25. At the time he was an AoG Youth pastor in Heathmont, Victoria, Australia,  Jim Williams sexually abused her close friend and two other girls too.

In 1977 Jim Williams succeeded Frank Houston as Superintendent of the New Zealand Assemblies of God.

When Jim Williams moved to Australia Brian Houston when Head of the Australian Assemblies of God, publicly welcomed him.

Jim Williams was banned from ever ministering again by both the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God for serial adultery offences.

Undeterred he founded House of Praise, Springwood, Queensland, Australia and continued ministering until his death in June this year.

Jim Williams sexual abuse of a 12 year old girl, Caroline Andrews:

Here is a comment by an Australian lady Caroline Andrews on this site 14 October 2014. Her name prior to marriage was Caroline Orr.

This comment is published on this site with Caroline’s permission and she wants her name published.

Caroline Andrews:

“I was a member of the AOG church in Heathmont when Jim Williams was in charge of our young peoples group.I had given my heart to the Lord at the age of 10 and just after my 12th birthday in 1960, Jim williams started to mollest me and this went on for over 3 years. He taught me to be secretive and when I was questioned at the age of thirteen, I only admitted to him kissing me as I was embarrassed in front of my mother. Years later at the age of 33 I found out that he had abused my twin sister and two other young girls at the time. This abuse has had a profound affect on my life. As he took away my childhood, and affected my education as all I could think about was him. I regret that I was never interested in my school life. I am still very secretive, and I have issues that I am only good for one thing in life and that is to please a man. I have no self-esteem. My marriage collapsed when my husband found out about the sexual abuse as I had never told him. Also my love of God is non-existant and I do not believe in a loving God any more. It took me half my life to realise the affects of his abuse on my life. He should have gone to jail as he was in simple terms a paedophile of the worst kind. About twenty years ago, he was made to sign a letter of apology to my sister and myself, but when it was delivered to us, we were not allowed to read it until we promised that it would be burnt straight away. This letter was not signed, neither was it a proper apology as all he said was that he would pray for our healing. What a joke. My sister has spent half her life in the care of psychiatrists and I have been on anti-depressants for half of mine. I will never get over what he did to me and it is a life sentence for me. That is all I have to say. Caroline Andrews nee Orr”.

 

My comments:

Heathmont is in Victoria, Australia.

Hillsong is an organisation which was birthed by satanic forces as a counter-sowing to the greatest New Zealand Revival by Smith Wigglesworth in Wellington, New Zealand in 1922. The satanic vessel for this false organisation was the life-long secret pedophile Frank Houston.

By an Eyewitness – Pastor Harry V. Roberts (Summary)

Smith Wigglesworth.

 

New Zealand’s greatest revival started in China, where a missionary, Mr. J. Fullerton, was shown by the Holy Spirit that God was about to pour out his Holy Spirit on New Zealand. Mr. Fullerton took a trip to his own country, Denmark, where he met Smith Wigglesworth. Mr. Fullerton told Smith Wigglesworth of what God had showed him. Smith Wigglesworth prayed about it and God showed that he should visit New Zealand.

Smith Wigglesworth’s first address, “The Enduement of Power and The Gifts of the Spirit” was delivered in the Sunday school hall of the Vivian Street Baptist Church, Wellington. The address showed that the Holy Spirit is a real person and is promised to all believers. We have the right to ask the Holy Spirit to live within us and have no victory over sin without it. The numbers at these morning meetings increased very rapidly and the meetings had to be moved to the main church, which was also too small! It was at one of these meetings that the phenomenon of Tongues was heard. It was peculiar how many people were immediately against tongues without knowing anything about it. These prejudices disappeared as soon as the interpretations came forth. The interpretations were awe-inspiring and soundly scriptural.

Miraculous healings took place, as deformed and diseased children were prayed for. One gaunt consumptive man, who had been entirely given up on as a hopeless case, was carried in. He was in a coma, but after prayer, he arose full of vigor and walked with his head up, out of the church, healed!

Evening meetings were held in the Wellington town hall. The crowds grew from 800, to 1600, to 3000 on the third night. From then onwards, people had to be turned away each night. At least 1000 could not gain admittance on one of the nights. Smith Wigglesworth preached mainly on Divine healing, his keywords were “ONLY BELIEVE”.

Wellington Town Hall was where evangelist Smith Wigglesworth was used to heal scores of people and lead them to salvation in 1922

The capital city’s morning newspaper, The Dominion, dated 31/5/1922 reports:

FAITH HEALING – EXTRAORDINARY SCENES
AT TOWN HALL – THE DEAF MADE TO HEAR

To heal the sick by Divine influence is no new claim, although to actually witness the process of cure being carried out in this work-a-day world has attracted big audiences to the Town Hall this week, a very large gathering being present at last night’s demonstration.

The Yorkshire evangelist, Mr Smith-Wigglesworth, is conducting the proceedings, and, except that he anoints with oil the real process of healing is carried out by faith itself. The evening commences with a religious service, including prayers and hymns, after which the demonstration of healing is given.

Last night about two hundred persons of both sexes presented themselves for treatment, but the evangelist was only able to deal with fifty of them, the other cases being postponed till to-night.

Those in search of relief comprised cripples (many of whom were able to throw away their crutches and sticks immediately); others, with goitre, rheumatism, partial blindness, deafness, and various forms of affliction. Quite a large percentage claimed that they were cured or relieved by the Divine faith poured into them by the evangelist. To particularise: A woman of middle age, who was crippled with rheumatism, demonstrated her cure by walking across the flood; stutterers were almost instantly made to repeat the Lord’s Prayer without stuttering; young women with necks swollen with goitre professed to be cured, and certainly the swellings in some cases disappeared or were reduced in size; an old man of 80 years, partially blind, said his sight had been improved; and numbers afflicted with pains of one sort and another declared that they were freed from their sufferings. There were failure, of course, due, perhaps, to lack of faith, or possibly the sufferers were incurable.

Some of the people healed described their experience in sworn affidavits. These affidavits were sworn before Mr. C.A. Baker, JP. The author did not have authority to publish names, the names have therefore been omitted.

Mr. ____, of Wellington, dairyman, declared that for three years he suffered from chronic gastritis and paralysis of both legs from hip downwards and could only drag along with crutches, caused by some spinal misery and drudgery. “On Sunday, the 4th June,” he proceeds, “I attended the Town Hall on crutches; I saw others being healed and believed that God would heal me. I went forward, Mr. Wigglesworth laid his hands on me, one of the workers anointed me with oil, Mr. Wigglesworth told me to walk. I handed him my crutches and walked home. I felt as the healing came as if a tight pair of stockings was being removed from my legs. I have been improving in health ever since the 4th June. For 14 years I have had a cyst on the back of my neck and have often spoken to the doctors about removing it. They did not seem anxious to cut it. The cyst increased in size till it was as large as an ordinary hen’s egg. The next morning, after my healing, when I awoke, I found that the cyst had completely disappeared.” “Declared at Wellington this 20th day of June, 1922”.

Mrs. ____ declares that over three years ago the varicose veins in her leg broke. “I was twice in the hospital”. She adds. “The rest in the hospital did the leg good, but when I came out and used the leg the veins burst open. The last time at the hospital the doctor cut the veins out of the inside of the leg; an ulcer formed on the outside of the left leg. I had to walk with a stick and could only limp. The pain was intense. I went to the Town Hall. Mr. Smith-Wigglesworth prayed over me, I had the faith that Jesus would heal me.

The pain ceased and has not returned. I was able to drop my stick and I ran up to tell my mother I was healed and again able to catch the car.

Now my leg is sound and well and the ulcer is daily healing and I praise God for his goodness to me. Now I am able to wash and do my own housework.

Before, I had always to have help with the housework.” “Declared at Wellington this day 23rd June, 1922”.

Mrs. ____ of Wellington, declares that her son Ronald (Aged 11 years) broke his arm about 5 years ago. It was badly set and was a trifle shorter than the other, and he could not bend his arm back. She took the boy to the Town Hall and now her boy’s arms are both the same length and the arm that was broken will now bend right back, and can touch his shoulder. Previous to this she had his arm massaged for fully twelve months without any benefit. This lady declares that her daughter Mavis, who suffered from adenoids, was also completely healed and has no trouble with her breathing since.
This declaration was made on June 20.

Miss. ____ declares that for fourteen years she suffered with her eyes – the right eye was turned right in and she always wore glasses to correct the sight. Dr. ____ said she would always require to wear them: “I went to the Town Hall”, she adds, “The second Sunday of the Mission, the 4th June. I had been several times previously to carefully note the proceedings. I have been a Christian since I was 9 years old and was sure that Christ would heal my sight. Mr. Wigglesworth placed his hands on my eyes and at once the right eye was straight. I did not again put on my glasses and each day the sight became stronger and now my eyes are both strong and my sight is splendid”.
“Declared at Wellington, this 21st day of June”.

The healing results of the Campaign were very remarkable; and taking the scores of written testimonies, it would not be an exaggeration to say that at least seventy-five per cent of those who came forward were definitely healed’.

 

My comments:

“New Zealand’s greatest revival started in China, where a missionary, Mr. J. Fullerton, was shown by the Holy Spirit that God was about to pour out his Holy Spirit on New Zealand”.

Satanic forces counter-sowed all the good work of this great New Zealand Revival, as they always do.

One of the satanic seeds that was sown at exactly the same time, in the same year, 1922, as this great New Zealand Revival was in the soul of the founder Frank Houston. Frank Houston was born in 1922.

Satan has birthed second and third generations of Houstons, including Frank Houston’s grandson Joel Houston, co-pastor of the very errant Hillsong New York City, Frank Houston’s grandson Ben Houston, the pastor of Hillsong Los Angeles and Brian Houston, Frank Houston’s second son.

Frank Houston’s first son Graeme has always refused to go to church. I believe Frank Houston, the out-of-control pedophile, especially in the 1960s to 1970s, sexually abused both his sons, Graeme and Brian, and maybe his many grandsons too.

Brian Houston married Bobbie Houston, who is a spiritual child of Pastor Neville Johnson, the highly corrupt former pastor of Queen Street Assemblies of God, Auckland, New Zealand in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Neville Johnson is still ministering today, especially in Perth Western Australian, and also in Great Britain, where he was born.

Be warned that man Pastor Neville Johnson is a false prophet. Don’t believe a single word he says. Shun him and avoid him at all costs like the plague. Two men have also written on this site that Neville Johnson has defrauded and cheated them in the past decade, of large sums of money in Ponzi schemes.

So here we have it. A sordid messy trail of destruction wrecked across the New Zealand and Australian Pentecostal scenes by a series of very corrupt Heads of the Assemblies of God and Elim denominations, culminating in the ongoing work and destruction of Christendom by the extremely errant Hillsong organisation.

Note of 6 September 2016

Pastor Brian Houston the current head pastor of Hillsong mega-church is to face pedophile protection charges soon.

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

 

This article outlines the history of Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong’s secret sexual abuse of hundreds of little boys, pre-teens and 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 and its updates

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 access little boys and young teens.

In 2000 the pedophile Frank Houston age 60 embarked on a four year homosexual affair with his young 20 year old worship leader Peter Laughton.

Involvement with a 20 year old male 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 18 in most Western countries.

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.

Pastor Brian Houston and his Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches leadership mates conspired to shelter Brian’s father, the lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, from the NSW Police.

 

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. 

If you are interested in down-loading the Royal Commission transcripts, testimonies of victims and other relevant documents go to http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au.

To read a series of my blog articles on the Royal Commission on this site, they start on 20 September 2014 with “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston. Part One. Royal Commission…”

You can then scroll a few articles further into October 2014 and you’ll see all the articles sequentially in chronological order on “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston…” and Royal Commission stuff.

If you know of any pedophile cases involving Pastor Frank Houston at any time anywhere in the world then please send me a message and I’ll email you back so we can confidentially talk about your case by email. No information will be published without your consent.

The following blog article on Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile activities was written on 13 September 2012 and it has been updated regularly as new information becomes available.

 

Blog article of 13 September 2012 (updated 6 September 2016)

 

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 30,000 in its network world-wide.

 

Brian Houston 20

 

Pastor Frank Houston was for decades the Head of, firstly the New Zealand, and later a prominent leader in the Australian AOG (Assemblies of God) denominations. By the time he confessed to secret pedophile crimes at age 79 he was revered across the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God movements. The truth is he was a rotten pedophile all that time- for many decades- probably since he 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 own son, Pastor Brian Houston, and conducted by a prominent Australian AOG clergy, 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 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 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.

I was also a prominent and successful lay leader with ten home fellowship groups under my care, which I pioneered 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.

 

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like 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. Fits in well and 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”.

 

The fourteen boy and young teen known victims

In all I have counted fourteen or more victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile homosexual desires and actions.

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 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.

 

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 it, sanitise it, 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.

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, or 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.

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.

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 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.
