Joel and Victoria Osteen's daily devotional, or Today's Word, can be delivered directly via email when a visitor creates an account with Joel Osteen Ministries at JoelOsteen.com. In addition to Today's Word, Joel and Victoria also publish a blog and provide several other resources on their website.
Joel Osteen was deeply involved in television ministry before he delivered his first sermon. In 1982, he began the television ministry at Lakewood Church, in Houston, Texas, where his father was pastor. After supporting his father's ministry from behind the scenes for 17 years, Joel's first sermon occurred just before his father's passing in January of 1999. Since that time he has held the reigns at Lakewood Church and continued to expand its outreach.
