When asked about what has made Lakewood so successful, Osteen said, “I don’t try to make the services super religious.” Instead, he goes on to say, “I want to make God good and relevant to people who weren’t raised like me.” Osteen is the son of Lakewood’s founding pastor John Osteen and took over the pulpit in 1999. Since then, the megachurch has famously grown to become the largest in the country. Osteen’s approach is [...]

    On January 23, 1999 he died after a heart attack at the age of 77.
    More Details Hide Details His youngest son Joel Osteen later succeeded him as pastor. Soon after the death of John Osteen, it is reported that someone on the executive staff of Joel Osteen Ministries or Lakewood Church either destroyed the original CD's and DVD's and VHS tapes of John Osteen. It has been said the works were either "destroyed by a fire," or "destroyed by a member of the executive staff," or "locked up to never be released." Someone speaking on the basis of anonymity said the church and the staff of Joel Osteen (perhaps Don Iloff, Jr., brother of Victoria Osteen), wanted the focus to be on the new pastor of Lakewood, Joel Osteen. If you call or write to Lakewood Church or to Joel Osteen Ministries, and ask for John Osteen products, they will tell you they are not available.
