The unconventional pastor to the stars

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM - The pastor sports a T-shirt and tattoos.  People of all ages and socio-economic statuses come to services dressed in casual clothes.

"We try to be genuine with who we are. We look incredibly normal. You're going to be accepted as you are," said Pastor Carl Lentz of the Hillsong Church of New York City.

Lentz is one of the most popular church leaders around and is quickly joining the ranks of  Joel Osteen and Bishop TD Jakes.

“My parents took me to church but growing up at some point I made a separation from serving God and going to church. I stumbled into a church I really connected with," said Lentz about the Hillsong Church.

The Pentecostal leader counts Justin Bieber and Vanessa Hudgens as participants.

"We reach everyone. New York has a spectrum of people. The younger generation we see now is sharper maybe than any generation we’ve seen,"  said Lentz.
