Joel Osteen Biography
(American Preacher & Televangelist)
Birthday: March 5, 1963 (Pisces)
Born In: Houston
His trademark smile and his unquestionable oratory talent have won the hearts of over 7 million people worldwide. A televangelist, Joel Osteen is a famous American preacher and is the Pastor of Lakewood Church. He usually delivers sermons in sold out stadiums and sports-arenas. With his spruce good looks and his constant messages of ‘living life to full potential’, ‘living in victory’ and ‘seizing destiny moments’, Osteen is no ordinary preacher. With the number of listeners and audiences he manages to amass, he is a spiritual guru and a religious seminary on his own. After studying fleetingly at Oral Roberts University, he worked in the TV ministry until his father’s death. His works have also made it to the New York Times best-sellers list and have sold reportedly 3 million hardcover copies around the world. His detractors vary from fundamentalists to the evangelicals who claim that his ‘prosperity preaching’ is at probabilities with Jesus’ thoughts and teachings. This persistent positive spiritual leader leads over America’s largest church flock - the Lakewood Church in Houston.
