Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church — one of the largest megachurches in the United States — preaches to the thousands who attend his services each week in Houston, Texas. His broadcasts, tours, books and missionary work reach, they say, millions more. The popular pastor faces his share of criticisms for his non-denominational and at times financially-focused empowerment gospel. Yet, he's still one of the most popular Christian pastors in the U.S. and a New York Times’ number one best-selling author. He takes to the red chair to talk about controversies, contemplations and his conversations with god.
