Justin Bieber's pastor, Judah Smith, now has Hollywood representation.

The 37-year-old Smith, who conducts weekly services in Los Angeles while being based in Seattle, has signed a deal with Management 360, where he'll be working with Beau Swayze. According to THR, Smith will be working on religious projects for "television, digital, books and branding."

The married father of three flies to L.A. every Wednesday to preach to massive, standing-room-only crowds, along with being the lead pastor at The City Church in Seattle. Recent L.A. attendees included Russell Wilson, Ciara and TV star Ashley Benson.

Meanwhile, spiritual advisee Bieber is enjoying a big month already: He's performing at the GRAMMY Awards and the BRIT Awards this month, and just replaced himself at the top of the Hot 100 chart.
