Lisa Osteen Comes is John and Dodie’s oldest daughter. 

Lisa was born with a condition similar to cerebral palsy, which challenged her father’s faith. Doctors were not optimistic about her condition and believed she only had a few years of life ahead of her. Luckily, Lisa managed to get rid of this awful disease during her childhood. Her parents have always attributed her recovery to God’s power.

But this was not the only time Lisa’s life was at risk. In 1990, she opened a package containing a pipe bomb. Luckily, she managed to survive. 

With her famous brother, Joel, Lisa now serves as an Associate Pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston. She has been working as a preacher and minister for over 25 years and is currently involved in several aspects of the church’s leadership.

Regarding her family, Lisa is married to Kevin and has three kids.

Paul Osteen was born in 1955 and is currently 67 years old. He works as a vascular surgeon and medical missionary, volunteering in remote parts of Africa, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa, bringing aid wherever it’s needed.

Paul was born in Houston, and after high school, he attended Oral Roberts University. He officially graduated from medical school in 1982.

After completing his surgical residency in Arkansas, Paul moved to Little Rock, the state’s capital, where he joined a private practice. He stayed here for over 20 years and then decided to move back to Houston to help his brother Joel take over as pastor of Lakewood. In 2005, Paul went on his first medical mission and began volunteering.

The same year, he decided to leave his job and bring basic surgical care to areas in Sub-Saharan Africa. He worked in parts of Zambia and Kenya, delivering medical equipment, training new doctors in remote communities, and performing surgeries whenever needed. In these years, he partnered with two main Christian aid organizations, Samaritan’s Purse and World Vision.

During an interview concerning poverty, Paul declared: “We, as the American church, can’t get so insulated that we forget poor, suffering people.”

Even though Paul primarily volunteers in Africa, he joined some organizations, working in other parts of the world. For instance, he is part of a team responding to immediate disasters such as the Iraq refugee crisis.

Paul is also the founder of a medical conference for missionary work known as the M3 Conference. This conference connects people in the medical field with aid organizations.

Joel Osteen was born in 1963 and is now 59 years old. He came into the world in Houston, Texas, and attended a public high school called Humble High School. He later went to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa and studied radio and television communication. Despite this, Joel never graduated.

In 1982, he returned to Houston, where he founded Lakewood’s television program. Here he worked producing his father’s sermons for over 17 years. Unfortunately, after his father suddenly passed away from a heart attack in 1999, he had to take his place.

Joel preached his first sermon in January 1999. He has been accused of promoting prosperity theology through his speeches. This is a religious belief according to which God dictates our financial wealth and physical well-being. People believing in prosperity theology also think that faith, along with positive speech and financial donations, can increase their material wealth.

In 2004, Joel also published his first book titled Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential, which reached the number one position in The New York Times.

Given the success of his first book, Joel decided to publish a second one called Become a Better You: 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Every Day, which also made The New York Times’s best-seller list. As of today, this author and preacher has published 18 books.

Joel married Victoria Osteen on April 4, 1987. She later picked up the role of co-pastor at his side. Together they had a son and a daughter. The whole family lives in a 17,000-square-foot mansion located in River Oaks. The estimated value of the house is an impressive $10.5 million!
