As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production though he was close to his father in ministry.

His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications. Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard. Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.

Within a year, the weekly service attendance grew from an average of 5,000 to more than 28,000, and additional services were added to accommodate the unprecedented growth. By 2001, according to Forbes magazine, Lakewood had grown to be the largest non-denominational church in America.

That first week, Lakewood added over 10,000 new members, and within a year became one of the most popular out-of-town visitor destinations in Houston. Over the next few years, Lakewood continued its growth and currently draws more than 45,000 weekly attendees.
