TMZ has captured the arrival of the 27-year-old artist on the facility riding his tour bus. The photo sparked questions as to what was his business in the prison. A spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has clarified the singer’s purpose for his visit, which is to preach the Gospel.
“The Warden of the institution approved a very brief visit by Mr. Bieber and his pastor to support faith-based programs at California State Prison, Los Angeles County,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
The state prison shelters over 3,000 inmates in both minimum and maximum security areas. CDCR assured that proper health protocols were followed during Justin’s visit.
“CDCR ensured every COVID-related precaution was taken prior to and during the visit,” the spokesperson added.
Justin and his wife are members of the Churchome, led by Pastor Judah and Chelsea Smith. In a previous statement, the professing Christian artist emphasized that a Church is not a building, it is God’s people.
“Church is not a place. We are the church. We don’t need a building to connect with God. God is with us wherever we are,” he wrote. “The creator of the oceans and mountains also created you! You are a part of the plan, your life matters, He sees you!” Bieber added. “He’s been patient with you as you ran from Him awaiting your return! He’s not mad, He understands.”
