WE CAN THANK HILLSONG BIBLE COLLEGE FOR HILLSONG’S NAKED COWBOY
We are hearing that people around the internet are not convinced that this footage was captured at Hillsong Conference. This Hillsong Conference was in the Theater at the Maddison Square Garden.
If you look at the original video footage in this article, you will see Hillsong pastors Bobbie Houston, Carl Lentz, Terry Crist and Ben Houston up on stage with the Naked Cowboy:
If you are still not convinced, in the image below, you will see Hillsong “Pastor” Ben Houston with the lone ranger.
SO WHO PLAYED THE NAKED COWBOY?
These were the “Christian” comments about the Naked Cowboy on Instagram:

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…

We are noticing a trend here in how Hillsong identifies people for ministry. If God hasn’t called you to ministry in Hillsong yet, use more hair gel.
