Hillsong's worship leader and songwriter Marty Sampson has recently shocked the Christian community in a recently deleted Instagram post when he announced that he is "genuinely losing my faith, and it doesn't bother me." Later, Sampson clarified that he has not renounced his faith, but his faith or what's lack thereof is on shaky ground.
Such a shocking confession has been preceded by the fact that Sampson no longer is with Hillsong church. In his own Instagram post, he admits that he will not appear as a vocalist on any future UNITED release. Nevertheless, Sampson has been attending Hillsong Church since he was 16 years-old. Since 1999, he has been co-writing songs for Hillsong Worship and later for UNITED.
Here's a look at some of Sampson's best worship songs he has had co-written or written for the Australian megachurch.
