Joel Osteen To Preach At Chicago Ballpark
CHICAGO, Aug. 5 (UPI) — Televangelist Joel Osteen will deliver a sermon Saturday at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, officials said.
Osteen, pastor of Houston’s Lakewood Church, held his first stadium event at Yankee Stadium in New York in 2009. He told the Chicago Tribune it was such a success he booked Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and that both events drew nearly 50,000 attendees.
“We never dreamed we would be doing big stadiums,” Osteen said. “I didn’t know if we could do it but it all sold out. It just all fell into place for Chicago.”
