Career and Professional Life

Joel’s father, a Southern Baptist minister, left the Lakewood Church and its television ministry. For 17 years, he developed Lakewood’s television programme and produced his father’s televised sermons. After his father’s death in January 1999, Joel took over John’s job as a pastor and televangelist two weeks after his father died, despite having no official religious training.

Fifty-six thousand people attended their grand opening, including notable guests such as Texas Governor Rick Perry and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The church’s weekly service TV feed was viewed in over 100 countries by 2008. The Lakewood Church broadcast has expanded rapidly since then, and it can now be seen in over 100 nations. Every week, Joel Osteen’s church hosts around 50,000 attendees.

His Net Worth

According to reports, Osteen’s book sales, radio show, speaking fees, and church collection bring in about $55 million per year. His Easter Sunday recording was viewed by almost 4.6 million people online. With that said, there’s little doubt that Osteen has the financial means to buy expensive cars and real estate.

In the Joel Osteen mansion, there are six bedrooms, six baths, a fireplace, three elevators, and one guest room. He owns a lot of luxury vehicles, but one of the most expensive is a Ferrari 458 Italia that can be seen in his garage. He has a total net worth of $100 million as of 2022.

Many people found solace in Osteen’s comments, but not everyone believed he was serious. Some may now ask why the opinions of onlookers are essential. Aside from the fact that Osteen’s popularity is partly founded on the views of his over 20 million monthly viewers and book buyers, his church collects over $32 million in charitable donations each year. In other words, public perception may be a source of concern for both Joel and those who donate.
