  • I cannot say enough good things about Lakewood!! I would listen and watch Joel many years ago when I first found my faith and he played such a big part in helping me establish a solid foundation. I moved to College Station back in March of 2021, and attended my first Lakewood service on October 2, 2021. It was so surreal for me at first that I was actually watching Pastor Joel preach in real life! But I have been attending ever since. My family makes the drive to Houston every Sunday because there is just no other place that fuels my spirit like Lakewood. All the pastors are so wonderful & encouraging. I was going through a really emotional time in my life when I first started attending and the Lakewood atmosphere was exactly what I needed. All the greeters and ushers make you feel right at home, just like Joel tells you they will. I love taking my family that visits us from out of state to Lakewood too! I feel like everyone should get to experience Lakewood, because that’s what it is; A WHOLE Experience!! I have watched people come with us as first time visitors receive salvation or reaffirm their faith! It’s such a beautiful House of Worship!!! I also love getting to hear all the guests speakers that visit and real life testimonies the church shares! Everything is just inspiring!
  • I've watched Lakewood Church on YouTube many times; the videos are great, but it doesn't compare to the electrifying experience of being there in person!!! You absolutely must come to visit Pastor Joel Osteen's church, it is better than any concert you will ever experience. You will absolutely feel God's love, his grace, his forgiveness, his blessings and healing pouring deeply into your very heart. You won't leave the same way you came in. The experience was so intense I couldn't help but shed tears, and I wasn't the only one. The music, the performance, the fellowship, the preaching, the services to the community is beyond excellent!!! God is truly in this place!!! Bring the whole family, come experience a glimpse of heaven on earth. You will be forever changed.
