Justin Bieber‘s pastor is releasing a new self-help book called “Own the Moment.”

Carl Lentz discussed the book on ABC’s “Good Morning America” today, saying it is filled with personal anecdotes and the story of how he overcame being judged for “not looking like a real preacher.”

Lentz, a lead pastor at the Christian Hillsong Church in New York City, also writes about Bieber’s request to be baptized.

Lentz explained that “like many people who want to renew their faith,” Bieber wanted to receive the religious sacrament.

“But it’s harder if you’re really famous and you get followed around everywhere,” Lentz said. “We ended up just finding an apartment in New York City, a friend of mine who has a giant bathtub … [We] had the coolest/weirdest baptism ever.”

Although he guides Bieber, Lentz said he did not have any influence over the singer’s decision to cancel his Purpose World Tour in the summer.
