Joel, one of the six children of former pastor John Osteen who founded Lakewood Church became the one to take over his father’s role after his death in 1999.

This smiling preacher has uplifted the attendance of Lakewood Church by thousands as the current attendance of this church is 43,000 given that it was 5,000 before.
