I usually don’t expect to see a near-naked cowboy gyrating from the stage of a Christian women’s conference. Nor would I see and hear thousands of Christian females applauding and squealing in delight, and spurring on the performance. Indeed if I were of the world, I’d expect these sights and sounds to come from a giant bachelorette party at a strip club.
I am not of the world. I like my women’s conferences to be edifying to me and glorifying to God. What I’m about to share from Hillsong New York’s women’s conference is neither of those things:
Family friendly Hillsong Includes the Dancing Naked Cowboy? by Churchwatch Central
…It has emerged that Hillsong recently had the ‘NY Naked Cowboy’ up on stage for their “Christian” Conference in the United States of America.
If you have a problem with this, according to Hillsong, you’re going to Hell.
“I think you are going to find [God] will deal with you. Big shocks ahead when judgmental people face their saviour. He only ever spoke harshly to the religious.” [Source]
Churchwatch Central today updated its story with the identity of the “naked cowboy,” as it turns out to be Hillsong’s NYC youth pastor:
If you didn’t pick up on the person’s name as these “Christian” women were swooning over the Naked Cowboy, his name (as seen in the above picture) is Diego Simila.
… And he is Hillsong’s NY Youth Pastor
Who is Diego Simila? He was a model living for a few weeks in New York. In that short amount of time, he was asked by Hillsong leadership to be the Youth Pastor of Hillsong New York City, way back in 2010. In other words, he was rushed into Hillsong leadership because of his body (that’s the sad truth – isn’t it Carl Lentz).
“Let me give you a bit of background of Diego. He was in California. He had a boy band… and actually he was about to make it big and God told him to go to Hillsong Sydney to Bible College.
He left it all to pursue God. It was a fork in the road. He knew if he were to take that route it would be selling out his soul in his case and so he went to Hillsong…
Left it all. God’s favour just guided him. Amazing how many relationships out of the gate just happened for him. And then he left there after graduation. Went back to California. Was involved in a local church there and was doing some modelling and he was about to blow it up in the modelling scene and God told him he needed to go to New York City.
He didn’t have a job. In fact they didn’t even know he was coming. He lived homeless there for about three weeks and he was just jumping from couch to couch. But he was faithful, and all of a sudden in a short, short time, he winds up being asked, being told to be the Youth Pastor of Hillsong New York City, started in 2010.
Today they are 14,000 people and if you know anything about New York City, planting a church there is crazy it isn’t like the mid-west…
