Justin Bieber awesomely took second seat to the pastor of his new-age church ... and it's so fun.
The Biebs and Pastor Joel Houston were leaving Hyde nightclub in Hollywood Friday night when our photog tried jawboning with Justin. But when J.B. wanted the pastor of Hillsong Church to get some face time, our photog obliged and the convo turned to surfing.
Houston -- who also fronts the band Hillsong United -- along with his co-pastor, Carl Lentz, are the spiritual advisers to lots of celebs. Lentz Baptized Biebs back in December.
