I’m going to start publishing a monthly interview with friends, clients, and others who are in the media world and might benefit my readers. I’m starting with an interview I just did for Ministry Today magazine with Pastor Joel Osteen from Lakewood Church in Houston. Joel and his father John were some of my first clients, and Joel and I led the team that created his enormously successful TV program. When Ministry Today asked me to edit an issue of the magazine, I thought an interview with Joel would be interesting – particularly about his career in media before he became a pastor. Because love him or not, he understands television, and his program reaches more than 10 million viewers a week. If you’re a communicator and interested in engaging today’s culture with your message, I think this magazine interview is worth your while.
