I am just wondering how many people he has brought into faith by being ultra accessible and running his church successfully.

Well, he bought the Compaq Center, former home of the Houston Rockets, when the Rockets got a new arena. Reportedly, he draws over 16,000 to a service. If there is one thing Joel Osteen clearly knows about, it's church growth.

What good is that if he does not teach the Bible? Most of the so called prosperity speakers have large crowds because they want to feel good. I read on another site that he was speaking in the NW but you had to buy a ticket to attend. He said $111 a ticket. When we have speakers, there are no tickets but a love offering is taken to help with expenses when they go to much smaller churches. I will take my Bible teaching minister over this guy anytime. I know he teaches from the Bible because he does it verse by verse.
