The Purpose hitmaker is studying to become a full-fledged minister at Hillsong Church.
According to OK! Magazine, Justin Bieber is interested in taking a leadership role at the church after the controversial exit of former mentor Carl Lentz.
The 26-year-old singer “believes he can take a leadership position in restoring orders,” sources said.
The insider explained: “Justin has never felt happier or healthier, and he says he owes it to the church.”
“Justin believes he can take a leadership position in restoring order’ to Hillsong after Lentz’s departure,” the source added.
Insiders revealed that the singer is participating as a choir member in Hillsong but he has no plans on giving up his career.
“(Justin) doesn’t plan to give up his music career, but he feels there’s a bigger calling out there for him,’ OK’s insiders said. “He wants to be a full-fledged minister next year.”
Lentz, 42, is seeking “treatment at an outpatient facility that specializes in depression, anxiety, and pastoral burnout” after his recent infidelity, PEOPLE reported.
The former pastor was fired from his position on November 4 due to “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”
He admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, Laura, whom he tied the knot with in 2003. They also share three children.
Speaking to People, a source says of Lentz: “He wants to be better for his family and is dedicated to doing the work. His family is supporting him and hopes their privacy will be respected on this journey.
“He has no ill will towards the church and recognizes that they needed to take some course of action to address his missteps.”
In November, Hillsong founder Brian Houston said in a statement: “They have a heart for people and we are confident that after a time of rest and restoration, God will use Carl in another way outside of Hillsong church.
“In terminating his tenure, we in no way want to diminish the good work he did here.”
