Carl Lentz pastors Hillsong Church NYC, an eight-thousand-member Christian congregation in the heart of Manhattan. Born the youngest of four in Williamsburg, Virginia, he was raised in a Christian household but struggled to connect with the local church concept and religion in general.

In 2010, they helped launch Hillsong Church NYC, the first US-based branch and one of the fastest growing churches in America. Known for reaching “the famous to the nameless,” the couple now lives in Montclair, New Jersey, with their three amazing children. Own the Moment is his first book.
