Joyce Meyer Houston Conference 2009

Joyce Meyer used to be kind of a stick in the mud disliking people wearing jeans in the office and avoiding lights, smoke, and rock in her conferences.  She finally relented when her staff (family) asked her if she was trying to appeal to the (older) folks who already follow her or younger generations searching for life in walking in the light.

This is Joel Osteems' Lakewood Church, a renovated sports stadium, capable of seating thousands of people at a time.  The size of this church doesn't really impress you till you see the twelve page booklet decribing its different ministries and the various maps to found your way around the church and the numerous parking garages.

Her message is always good, but I have to admit her various CDs, DVD, books, and website downloads offer the real meat of her teachings.


  1. I've seen that church on tv. I'm not a huge fan of Joel Olsteen....not sure if that's how you spell his last name. But he has a HUGE following! I don't see how a pastor justifies being as wealthy as he is or how he gets away with using so little scripture. The whole world's gone mad. lol Sounds like a fun weekend though. I've heard good things about her!

  2. I'm not a fan of Olsteen's either. The church is so huge, I can't imagine it being a personal experience.
