As we all know Joel Osteen is a great televangelist. Joel was raised in Houston, Texas, with a loving family of seven and world-renowned parents in full-time ministry.
Joel Osteen never imagined that he would follow so closely in his father John Osteen’s footsteps. As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production though he was close to his father in ministry.
Joel Osteen’s favorite quote which he always leaves in his official platforms is”There’s no greater feeling than being able to help people rise higher and overcome something and feel better about themselves. I think that we’re all made to help others, to lift people up.”
According to his about page, “His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications. Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard.
Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.”
Victoria Osteen his dear lovely wife began her career as a young woman working in her family’s jewelry business; however, growing up, both of her parents were involved in their local church which set a powerful example for Victoria and her older brother, Don.
Victoria Osteen’s quote “A lot of times we see choices in front of us, and we limit ourselves by what we see. God wants us to see His way of doing things. And His way is always greater than our ways” always inspire people to continue to chase their dreams.
According to her about page on Joel Osteen’s official website, “Her mother taught Sunday school, and her father was a deacon. As a little girl, Victoria would serve alongside her father, greeting parishioners and helping with the offering. She enjoyed learning about the inner workings of ministry, having no idea at the time that it was her life’s calling.”
Joel and Victoria Osteen are blessed with two Children Jonathan and Alexandra. Jonathan celebrated his 23rd birthday on the 21st day of April, 2018. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin.
Alexandra who is aged 19 is is still in school. She used to sing with a band LYA but stopped since 2016.( Which i don’t like because she is talented and she got the voice too) Hope she comes back to the music scene soon.
