Earlier this year a documentary film titled: ‘Hillsong: Let Hope Rise’ was released into theaters. The goal was to showcase the Christian rock band’s life on the road. But not all people were necessarily behind the young vocalists. Critics labeled the film as a Jesus propaganda documentary and called out the director Michael John Warren.

Warren identifies himself as a former Catholic turned agnostic who wanted to invest time and energy looking at the band’s success.
Interesting enough, the Hillsong New York branch has also been making headlines for their stance on the Trump travel ban and over bringing Justin Bieber to Christ.
According to Christian Today, Hillsong has 194 locations and has been around for 33 years.
