Biography

American evangelical, television preacher. He is the youngest of four boys and followed in his father John's footsteps, becoming a minister. On October 3, 1999, he assumed the position of Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church. He began Lakewood's television outreach ministry and worked alongside his father.

With his toothy-broad smile, slick hair, energetic youthful appearance, and biblical messages of love, Osteen and his wife Victortia have raised millions for his church and has increased membership via televised services and orations. With a reported 38,000 members attending weekly services Lakewood is an evangelical center that had to move to a former sports arena to accommodate the numbers of attendees.

Source Notes

from a sermon #VL_003 - 3/5/00 on his website "http://www.lakewood.cc/sermon_listing.htm#, quoting his mother Dodie: "Thirty-seven years ago, on this day at a hospital here in the Houston area, I had a beautiful little baby boy. And his name was Joel Scott Osteen. And he weighed 9 pounds and 5 ounces. And John and I were so proud of that little baby boy. We already had three others, but we were so proud to have another little baby boy." The "sermon" was dated March 5, 2000 and was entitled "Living a Life of Forgiveness."
