Hillsong has settled an assault case against one of their former staff members, Jason Mays, in the assault against Anna Crenshaw.  

Back in 2016, then 18-year-old Crenshaw says she was at a social gathering when Mays inappropriately touched her.

Crenshaw says she went to Hillsong’s head of pastoral care oversight and told them how Mays had assaulted her. However, Crenshaw says her complaint was not taken seriously.

At the time of the assault, Mays’ father, John Mays led the human resources division of Hillsong Church, which made Crenshaw uneasy about reporting the incident.

Hillsong’s response to the assault, according to Crenshaw and her father, Pastor Ed Crenshaw of Victory Church, was unacceptable.
