Before reading the article below – we would argue that Hillsong doesn’t invite doctrinally sound “pastors and Christian leaders” to speak at their annual conferences.
The invitations Hillsong extends to those they want as keynote speakers, are usually based on “popularity”, not on a biblical desire to mature the body of Christ. We should be asking the question – why do the majority of their keynote speakers fall into the category of false teachers? These are not false accusations as some may think. We recommend our readers do their own due diligence, please don’t just take our word for it. Much of the evidence for our claims are readily available out there on the web, that same evidence well-researched by mature theologians from both the Reformed and Charismatic camps. For instance:
1. TD Jakes: a Prosperity and Word of Faith heretic who denies the trinity.
2. Rick Warren: a Seeker Sensitive pastor and notorious bible twister who teaches anything to please anyone.
3. Joseph Prince: a Prosperity and Word of Faith heretic, and antinomian.
4. Joyce Meyer: a Prosperity and extreme Word of Faith heretic and pastrix.
5. Beth Moore: a notorious bible twister and pastrix.
6. Joel Osteen: is a New Age, Prosperity and Word of Faith heretic.
7. Jentezin Franklin is a notorious bible twister, Prosperity and Word of Faith heretic.
8. Craig Groeschel whose syncretism sees him aligning with the Word of Faith heretics already listed above.
Hillsong Conference is an event that boosts the popularity of frauds while at the same time tearing at the essentials of the orthodox Christian faith.

Hillsong Founder Brian Houston Issues Statement On Mark Driscoll at the Hillsong 2015 Conference
I just received this information from Mark DeMoss via email:
Statement by Brian Houston on Mark Driscoll at Hillsong 2015 Conference
For years, Hillsong has invited pastors and Christian leaders from around the world to speak at our annual conferences in Sydney, Australia and London, England. Well in advance of his resignation as senior pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington, we invited Mark Driscoll to be one of our speakers this summer. Rather than having Mark preach or teach, I am excited about interviewing Mark and his wife, Grace from our main platform during our Hillsong Conference 2015.
I am looking forward to having this opportunity to speak openly with the Driscolls about life and ministry, as well as recent events and lessons they’ve learned through personal and ministry trials during the past year. My aim is to have an in-depth conversation that gives insight into their hearts.
Mark has been candid about mistakes he has made, and if we can, through our conference, help others through his life experiences, we think that will prove valuable.
This exclusive statement comes from Brian Houston in response to my post last week noting that Mark Driscoll was slated to speak at the conferences. Instead of having a speaking position, he will be interviewed by Houston.
The description of Driscoll on the conference websites (Sydney, Europe) has not changed to reflect this news or the dissolution of Mars Hill Church. The description lists him as “founding pastor” rather than co-founder of the former Mars Hill Church.
