Hillsong founders Brian and Bobbie Houston call for volunteers for upcoming online ministry

by Kelly Valencia

Hillsong founders Brian and Bobbie Houston are calling for volunteers to join their new online ministry, JesusFollowers.TV. The megachurch pioneers issued this call through social media, where Brian has been updating followers on his upcoming ventures.

The post read: “Are you passionate to see the ongoing spread of the Gospel? Are you passionate to see Jesus bring change and transformation to lives? Are you passionate for purpose and calling?Are you willing to pioneer and build testimony to the Glory of God?

“If so, you are welcome to enquire about joining the launch team at”

Though details about the new ministry remain scarce, Houston previously mentioned in December of last year that he and his wife, Bobbie, would be commencing a church in the spring of 2024.

This marks Brian Houston's return to ministry following his resignation as leader of Hillsong in 2022. He stepped down amidst allegations of inappropriate contact with two women, alongside various legal and financial issues.

At the time, he was also facing trial for allegedly not disclosing abuse offences committed by his father. Frank Houston, who died in 2004, is believed to have used his position as a pastor to abuse as many as nine boys in the 1970s.

In August 2023, he was acquitted after an Australian court ruled that he had a "reasonable excuse" under the law not to disclose the charges against his father.

In his latest update, Houston announced that the online ministry will launch during the first weekend in June.

He wrote on X: “I’m very excited about our online community - about to be launched the first weekend in June. http://JesusFollowers.TV. Building community - Connecting Jesus Followers and building disciples - Pointing to Jesus and seeing people become new followers of Jesus. JesusfollowersTV.”
