Private jets, Cartier watch: Hillsong under probe in Australia after claims of misuse of church funds

Mar 12, 2023

Hillsong founder Brian Houston was accused of spending lavishly on luxury retreats, designer goods, private jets and custom skateboards. PHOTO: SCREENGRAB FROM BRIANCHOUSTON/INSTAGRAM https://str.sg/ikR8 Australian megachurch Hillsong is under investigations for financial misconduct by local authorities following allegations that its founder used church funds for his lavish lifestyle, among other things. On March 9, The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Tasmanian independent MP Andrew Wilkie had in Parliament accused the church of breaking financial laws in Australia and around the world. He also accused the church’s founder Brian Houston of spending lavishly on luxury retreats, designer goods, private jets and custom skateboards. Mr Wilkie had used parliamentary privilege, which refers to special legal rights and immunities which apply to each House of the Parliament, its members and committees, to make these allegations. Saying that the allegations were leaked to him by a whistleblower, he said they included claims such as the church earned A$80 million (S$71 million) more income in Australia than it reported publicly. “Hillsong followers believe the money they put in the poor box goes to the poor,” said Mr Wilkie, who was quoted in Australian TV news network 9News. “These documents show how that money is actually used to do the kind of shopping that would embarrass a Kardashian,” he added, referring to the prominent American family known for their wealth and extravagance. Mr Wilkie tabled thousands of pages in 17 large ring-binder folders, claiming that they were internal documents and financial records from the church. They included credit card statements, records of the use of private jets, designer gifts and details of first class and business flights. A 42-page whistleblower disclosure statement also highlighted further examples of the alleged spending. Holding up a piece of paper in parliament, Mr Wilkie said: “For example, this document shows how in 2021 four members of the Houston family and their friends enjoyed a three-day luxury retreat in Cancun, Mexico, using A$150,000 of church money.” He added: “A A$6,500 Cartier watch for Bobbie Houston, A$2,500 for Louis Vuitton luggage, a A$2,500 watch for Phil Dooley, two watches worth A$15,000 for Joel and Julia A’Bell, shopping sprees for designer clothes at Saks Fifth Avenue and even A$16,000 for custom skateboards.” Mr Wilkie said that the documents showed Mr Houston “treated private jets like Ubers, again all with church money. For example, in one three-month period, Brian Houston’s trips cost A$55,000, A$52,000, A$30,000, A$22,000 and A$2,000.” Among the documents, the Houstons allegedly “failed to disclose it was the tithes incomes” from the Hillsong congregation that paid for their upgrade of hotel quarantine accommodation of A$5,389 on top of the mandatory government quaratine fee of A$4,016, after returning from a United States trip in 2020. The documents also claimed that the church’s spending include A$82,000 on allowances for pastors and executive staff to purchase meals, A$26,000 on entertainment, A$37,000 on flowers, A$171,000 on gifts, A$288,000 on honorariums to guest speakers, A$13,000 on high tea. “Conversely, the amount spent on helping ‘people in need’ included just A$2,900 for pastoral care direct costs, and A$1,500 on pastoral care visitations,” the whistleblower’s documents alleged.
