Worship leader and conservative activist Sean Feucht took his “Let Us Worship” concerts to Johannesburg, South Africa, over the weekend. Over 8,000 people attended the event.
Feucht celebrated the results of his first “Let Us Worship” event outside the United States in a social media post. He wrote, “Salvations, healings, freedom from addiction and SO MUCH HOPE AND JOY restored today. God is ALIVE and MOVING in South Africa!!!”
In an Instagram post showing people running to the front during the invitation, Feucht said, “It felt like 1/3 of the crowd was running to Jesus for salvation, freedom from addiction, and surrender as drugs, needles, pills and lots more was thrown on the stage. I’m undone and in awe again at the miracle power of JESUS tonight! HE JUST KEEPS ON GETTING BETTER!”
Feucht is the son of a dermatologist-turned-missionary. He was born in Montana and became a Christian on a trip to the Amazon with his father. In 2016, he signed a deal with Bethel Music and became a worship leader at Bethel Church.
Feucht caught the attention of President Donald Trump in 2019 when he launched a bid to win the Republican nomination for the Congressional seat in California’s 3rd district. He only garnered 13 percent of the vote in the primary, but he was one of the faith leaders called by President Trump to pray over him in the Oval Office during the impeachment controversy in December 2019.
The fiery worship leader came to national prominence in 2020, when he launched his “Let Us Worship” tour in response to the restrictions on churches during the COVID pandemic. He led prayer meetings and preached in places like Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle, which were sites of large Black Lives Matter protests after the killing of George Floyd.
Feucht also carried his tour to the nation’s capital in 2021. He led a worship service on the National Mall in September.
Feucht’s ministry recently came under scrutiny from Rolling Stone. The magazine claims IRS records show that Feucht’s ministry brought in $5.3 million in 2020, compared to only $280,000 in 2019. In addition, Feucht recently purchased a home in a gated community in Southern California and a five-acre spread in Montana. According to Rolling Stone, the value of the two properties is over $2 million.
He has not responded to the reports, but Feucht tweeted about Rolling Stone reporters investigating him in June. “The mainstream media will stop at nothing to attack Christians,” he said. “Yet, we’ve seen God use this stuff to even change the reporters (sic) hearts.”

Today, a different @RollingStone reporter (@karavoght) showed up to spy on our prayer team in D.C.
The mainstream media will stop at nothing to attack Christians. Yet, we’ve seen God use this stuff to even change the reporters hearts! 🙏🏽
Feucht also demonstrated his generosity while he was in South Africa. The ministry participated in a grocery giveaway to families in need.
