Live Together in Unity - Victoria Osteendoes
My friends and family poke fun at me when I say that I'm a fan of Joel Osteen. But spend 10 minutes watching him on TV and you'll see why I'm a fan. He's a fantastic communicator and an expert speaker. He's inspiring. His message of faith, hope, and optimism is one that's relevant to everyone, regardless of their denomination. And yes, darn it, he's rich and successful.
Joel Osteen is a well-known televangelist, preacher and best-selling author from Houston, Texas. He is mostly recognized for being one of the senior pastors at the largest Protestant church in America, Lakewood Church. His live sermons are streamed to an average of 20 million people on a monthly basis. Before he began preaching himself, he spent a lot of time working behind the scenes at Lakewood Church. When Joel took over, the membership of the church grew as thousands of people were keen to hear his unique thoughts on Christianity.
He is an author of many books, seven of which are New York Time Best Sellers and his televised sermons capture more than 7 million viewers per week and 20 million every month around the worldwide. After he finished high school in the city of Humble, in , Osteen enroled in Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma to study radio and television communications.
