For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the U.S., shutting down gatherings across the nation, Joel and Victoria Osteen are holding a night of hope and inspiration at Yankee Stadium — an event the duo hopes will bring “healing and wholeness” to the country.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Osteen, who with his wife leads Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, said that the church has held Nights of Hope annually since 2004 — until the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted those plans.
“We never dreamed we’d have a break like we did,” the 59-year-old pastor said. “Once we stopped, I didn’t know when we would come back. So when Yankee Stadium called us and said, ‘We have a date for you,’ it just felt right. It felt like God opened the door.”
