According to Businessweek, Lakewood is the Most Popular Church in America

Businessweek has created a short list of the most popular churches in America. Lakewood Church in Houston, TX (where Joel Osteen is the pastor) is at the top of the list.

I can’t say that I’m really surprised by this. A weekly attendance of 43,500 is pretty extraordinary. It feels like Lakewood services are on every TV network. Plus, Joel Osteen has a number of best selling books.

I know many people don’t agree with Joel Osteen’s brand of theology. I don’t know him personally, but it seems that his heart is in the right place.

Here are the churches that rounded out the rest of the list:
2. LifeChurch.tv, Edmond, OK.
3. Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago, IL
4. North Point Community Church, Alpharetta, GA
5. Second Baptist Church of Houston, TX

What do you think about the list? Post a comment and let me know what you think.

    One day I will go to North Point Community Church. I would like to see why it is so popular. I went on Joel's site one time and they have lodging information on there! Visiting his church is like a vacation for some people! That is really impressive. No matter what the haters say, I will still like to listen to Joel, because he preaches in a very easy-going manner and it's easy (for me) to receive good news that way!

    I watch Joel Osteen on the Trinity Broadcasting Network all the time. He encourages people in so many things that he says. People have lived with negativism so long and when they hear something positive they are drawn to it. It’s best to have a pastor who speaks positively than one who speaks negatively.
