This Week in History
Joel Osteen has had various meetings at Philips Arena sharing lessons of hope and prosperity to congregations of 10,000 upwards to 19,000. Joel Osteen executed his first sermon outside of Lakewood Church, where he currently resides, in 2004 at Philips Arena. This event proved to be a success as patrons where aloud into Philips Arena until seating ran out and it was standing room only. Following this sermon, Joel Osteen returned in 2005 to preach on September 1st and 2nd and most recently this past Friday, August the 21 as he conducted "A Night of Hope."
