Ex-Hillsong Pastor Speaks Out After Infidelity Case

Carl and Laura Lentz

A former pastor of Hillsong East Coast, Carl Lentz, has spoken up over cases of infidelity after two years of the accusation. The allegation caused his wife a mental breakdown and led to his dismissal from the New York-based church. However, he said that he and his wife are still together.

Lentz wrote on his social media pages, “It’s been a challenging road but we are alive, we are at peace, and thanks to the grace of God, we are together.

“Not sure what the future holds for us, but we do know that we face it as a family, and for that, I am so thankful. My deepest thanks to our friends and family that have shown us such unconditional love and grace when we have desperately needed it. Forever grateful. I am hopeful about what is ahead.”

Since November 2020, Lentz has not commented on the issue having admitted that he was unfaithful to his wife. He also said that he would no longer be a pastor with the church.

In his words, “I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life, and I was held accountable for that. This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions. I now begin a journey of rebuilding trust with my wife, Laura, and my children and taking real time to work on and heal my own life and seek out the help that I need.”

Meanwhile, his wife, Laura Lentz, also revealed that she and her husband had worked hard to sustain their marriage in the past 22 months. She said, “To make our marriage what it has become, we will never stop working on ourselves, for this marriage and for our kids.

“I know there are many that don’t or would never do what I chose to do, and that’s OK; it’s not for everyone. I look forward to sharing our story, how I came to that conclusion and I think it’s going to help a lot of people. But I am so proud of my husband and for the responsibility he’s taken.

“Mostly, I’m grateful for a man who humbled himself and didn’t try to defend himself. He has kept quiet publically and he has remained focused on the one thing that matters most — our family.”
