It’s Not About You (Pastor)


If you visit the homepage for Lakewood Church, you’ll find four photos of Joel Osteen. Make that 5, when you count the one in the rotating banner (and three of the Mrs.).

I think it’s safe to say this isn’t a “purpose-driven” church but a “personality-driven” church.

(I make this generalization with only surface knowledge of Lakewood and Osteen. This is what bloggers do.)

At any rate: I like seeing photos of people on church sites, but not a photo of the pastor front-and-center. The latter just tells me this church puts too much emphasis on the pastor (or maybe the pastor puts too much emphasis on himself).
