John Hillery Osteen (August 21, 1921 – January 23, 1999) was a pastor in Houston, Texas, who served as the founding pastor of Lakewood Church from 1959 until his death in 1999.
His weekly television program, John Osteen, aired for 16 years and was watched by millions in the United States and nearly 50 other countries.
John Hillery Osteen was born in the Texas town of Paris. He graduated from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, with a bachelor’s degree and Northern Baptist Seminary with a master’s degree. Oral Roberts University awarded him a Doctor of Divinity degree.
Osteen claimed in his biography that he did not seriously consider God until 1939, after leaving a nightclub he frequented. He began preaching in Paris, Texas, within a few months, and was apparently ordained to the gospel ministry by a church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention shortly before his 18th birthday.
After completing his studies at NBTS, he worked as an Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church in San Diego, Texas, and by the late 1940s, he was a minister at First Baptist Church in Hamlin, Texas.
Osteen left Hamlin in 1948 to become an itinerant preacher, but he was pastor of Central Baptist Church in Baytown, Texas, within a year.
