This is the moment passengers’ mixed reactions were captured as Christian singers sang gospel music ‘30,000 feet in the air’, sparking debates about the nature of worship online.

Video posted on social media shows crowds on the plane – which is thought by some to have been on its way to Germany – sing along about Jesus, with one man playing the guitar. 

The clip, posted by Jack Jensz Jr. was captioned ‘We are taking this flight over for Jesus!’ and has more than 205,100 views.

It is not confirmed whether the flight was on a commercial airline where some passengers simply broke out into song, if everyone travelling was of the same religious group, or if permission was asked of others or any crew beforehand.

Some people aboard the aircraft however didn’t seem amused by the seemingly impromptu in-flight entertainment.

On social media Mr Jensz – who according to Daily Dot seems to be a pastor – describes himself as the founder of religious organisation Kingdom Realm Ministries, based in Philadelphia, in the United States.

However his social media suggests he spent part of the past week in Germany and across Europe, which is where his flight may have been headed, TMZ reports.

He and his wife have posted about working along the Ukrainian border over the past few weeks. 

Comments online especially pointed out the reaction of one man, saying he appeared annoyed as he looks directly into the camera in the short clip which pans over the cabin.

‘Poor guy in the green-and-blue plaid shirt: Figuratively, I am him. He is me,’ one comment said.

Another added: ‘Blue shirt guy is two seconds away from jumping out of the plane.’ 

Although the video was posted a week ago, it has sparked a social media debate as some have argued the act was ‘pushing’ beliefs on people and others suggested Jewish or Muslim people would have received major backlash if they were to do the same.

Ilhan Omar, United States representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district – who is Muslim – tweeted the clip saying: ‘I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end?’

One TikTok comment said: ‘I’m a Christian and I don’t believe in enforcing this on anyone, pray in private in your own time.’

‘I’m Christian but there’s definitely a time and place,’ another user added.

However not all were as disparaged by the performance. One Twitter commenter said: ‘I don’t find anything wrong with this video. On the contrary, I have mega respect for the people playing and singing. “Preach the gospel to all the world”.’ 

But most other users were equally unimpressed, with some even saying they would have ‘opened the emergency exit’ or demanded a refund.

‘And people go on about kids on flights,’ one comment remarked.

Mr Jensz was also slammed after posting another video on TikTok in which he and his wife Lily Jensz were encouraging people on a train to become religious, saying that ‘when you invite Jesus in your life, not only do you get eternal life, but you also get a peace’.

The pair continued: ‘With God, it doesn’t mean bad things won’t happen…but it means that we don’t have to be influenced in our hearts.’ 

Many online speculate this is a train with Ukrainian refugees, as the couple has recently posted about helping people along the Poland-Ukraine border, but this is unconfirmed.

Sharing the clip, one Twitter user hit out: ‘So the group who tortured people on the airplane with their ‘worship’ songs also harassed people on trains on the same trip.’ 

MailOnline has reached out to Jack Jensz for a comment.
