Javen Sanchez belonged to one of the largest Pentecostal churches in Australia. Pentecostal churches are also known as happy clappers and megachurches. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is an adherent to one of them known as Horizon Church. Others include Hillsong and C3 (Christian City Church)
What are these churches, how do they function, how do they get so rich and how do they become so influential? What are the effects on believers and what happens to those who leave?
Javen will cover these areas as well as the epistemology of Pentecostal churches and his journey to atheism.
