Justin Bieber may have attended church with star NFL QB Russell Wilson recently.
Bieber, the popular 20-year-old Canadian singer, took to his Twitter to share an image of himself, the Seattle Seahawks' Wilson and Pastor Judah Smith.
"Blessed to hear one of the best @judahsmith speak today about our Lord in church today. #JesusIs," Bieber captioned the image.
The pastor who leads The City Church in Seattle, Wash., caught wind of Bieber's message and responded, "Love you."
The exchange between Bieber and his pastor comes less than a week after the singer's on-and-off again girlfriend Selena Gomez tweeted about the minister of God.
Gomez, the 21-year-old singer and actress, took to her Instagram account recently to let it be known how important Pastor Judah Smith and his family were to her ahead of his "Jesus Is" tour.
"Love my pastor and his family so much," Gomez exclaimed on Instagram. "Don't know what I would do without them. @judahsmith Jesus Is tour!"
Last year, rumors swirled about Pastor Smith being the reason for Bieber and Gomez to reconcile after they broke up.
"Pastor Judah pleaded with Selena to fly to Norway," a source reportedly told Star magazine. "She's the only person who can stop Justin from having a breakdown."
While the news was never confirmed by Bieber, his Pastor or Gomez, the minister made it clear that he has invested in the Canadian crooner's salvation.
"Justin and I share Scriptures on a regular basis and communicate," Smith told E! last year. "And I think you find a lot of comfort and clarity in the Scriptures."
Smith has made it clear that he seeks to uplift Bieber. Regardless of media speculation, Smith has never called Bieber anything less than a good young man.
"I do my best to encourage him, and he's a spectacular young man," Smith said during an appearance on Fox last year.
