I’m bipolar, 27-years-old, diagnosed 1.5 years ago, and currently on meds.
I have gone to therapy with a psychologist that at first was simply that. Later I got into his church group and he became my leader.
Now therapy seems a little overwhelming and uncomfortable as most of the time we speak about spiritual issues and he doesn’t contribute to my wellness.
Should I look for another therapist?

Sometimes the lines get crossed between therapist and friend.
It seems that this has happened in your case. Many people have to go to three or four therapists before they find one that is a good fit for them.
Yes, you need to find another therapist. Hopefully you can stay in your church group and neither one of you will be uncomfortable.
If you still feel uncomfortable in his church group, then find another one.
Also, find a hobby that you enjoy, or volunteer at your local hospital or food bank.
When you are helping someone else your problems are still there but they don’t feel so overwhelming.
