Over 17,000 Hillsong fans packed into the Forum arena in Los Angeles on Oct. 23 to worship in an epic concert that will be featured in a movie next spring.
The Sydney-based megachurch’s latest project is producing a film set to release next April. “Hillsong Movie-Let Hope Rise” will feature the Los Angeles concert, as well as tell the story of the church whose worship team created such praise hits as “Hosanna,” “Mighty to Save,” “From the Inside Out,” “Shout to the Lord,” “Oceans” and many more.
Hillsong pastor Brian Houston attended the concert. The pastor wrote that he hopes the film "tells the story of God's faithfulness on this 30-year journey. The aim is to give people the world over the opportunity to experience the praise and worship that has been birthed in this House."
Hillsong is affiliated with the Assemblies of God and sees 100,000 weekly attendees internationally.
