Sex Offender Denied Bid to Work at Hillsong, Despite Endorsements from Members

A young man wanting to join the pastoral staff of Hillsong will not be working at the megachurch anytime soon, after he lost his appeal that prohibited him working around children- the result of being convicted of indecent assault in 2019, according to the Daily Telegraph

The 22-year-old man, who has been identified only as ENT, was forbidden from working with or around children after he was deemed ineligible for a “Working with Children Check” – one of several certifications that is required by Hillsong before anyone can participate in the ministry, along with a reference check, interview with a pastor, and an application.



The man, who has strong references from other Hillsong members pleading his case in a bid to have this overlooked, was convicted of “indecent assault in September 2018 and sentenced to a two-year good behaviour bond after a court found he rubbed his erect penis on a female bus passenger.” The Telegraph further notes:

“Two separate forensic psychologists have since agreed ENT met diagnostic criteria for frotteurism – a paraphiliac disorder characterized by sexual arousal from rubbing the erect penis against a nonconsenting person’s body. NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal senior member Elaine Connor…explained his status:

The applicant seeks a WWCC clearance because he is undertaking studies in pastoral leadership with the Hillsong Church for whom he then hopes to work…(but) The Children’s Guardian submitted ENT had a “recorded history of sexual misconduct” which resulted in one conviction, two acquittals, one police intelligence report and other allegations included in police statements that did not result in a charge.”

Despite seeking to give the Tribunal evidence that he has stopped with the sexual crimes in mid-2020, after allegedly being saved, the Tribunal gave little weight to his profession of faith, nor did they give weight to Hillsong members who were vouching for him, on account of the written reports not referring his sexual assault conviction or making mention of it at all.

They ultimately opined that the average person who read the list of his criminal sexual history would not be comfortable leaving their child alone with him, and unless Hillsong opens up their policies and make an exception for him, he won’t be working there anytime soon.



A CALL TO ACTION

Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com

Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year.
