Joel and Victoria Osteen to Hold Historic ‘Night of Hope’at Los Angeles Dodger Stadium


LOS ANGELES (April 5, 2010) — As a New York Times bestselling author, pastor of America’s largest congregation, and host of a weekly television program viewed by millions all over the world, Joel Osteen has been heralded as a voice of hope for a new generation. On April 24th, Joel and his wife Victoria will take their distinctive, uplifting message to Los Angeles’ legendary Dodger Stadium for an inspiring and memorable “Night of Hope” celebration.

“More than ever, there is a need for hope across our nation,” Osteen said recently. “I like to tell people, ‘God’s dream for your life is bigger than your own,’ and our ‘Night of Hope’ in Dodger Stadium is all about inspiring people to expect God’s best for them. We anticipate great things.”

Pastors of Houston’s 16,000-seat Lakewood Church, ranked the largest church in America, Joel and Victoria Osteen hosted a similar “Night of Hope” in New York’s Yankee Stadium in 2009, and are anticipating another record-breaking turnout for this historic event at Dodger Stadium. Attendees will be treated to an inspirational message of hope and God’s love from the Osteens, along with the electrifying music of two-time Grammy Award winner Israel Houghton, Dove Award winner Cindy Cruse Ratcliff, Steve and Dadra Crawford, and the Lakewood Band and Ensemble.

“Pastors Joel and Victoria, the team here at Lakewood, and the organizers in Los Angeles all share a sense of expectancy for this event,” said Donald Iloff, a spokesperson for Joel Osteen Ministries. “Great things happen when people pray and believe together, and that’s what we’re expecting for this ‘Night of Hope’ celebration.”

Tens of millions worldwide are inspired by his weekly television broadcasts, his New York Times bestselling books, his popular weekly podcasts, and his sold-out worship events in arenas across the country.
