Church Announcement: Pastor Joel Osteen Will Be One Of The Keynote Speakers For The COGIC,110th Holy Convocation!


Reader, what're your thoughts on this?  I'm very surprised to hear that Joel Osteen is speaking this year at the COGIC International Convocation.  Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, will be the Special Guest Speaker when members of the country’s largest Black Pentecostal denomination gather in St. Louis for their annual Holy Convocation. Why some on social media are pleasantly surprised that Pastor Joel is speaking others in the organization ain't too happy about it. 


Facebook Comment: Contrary to popular beliefs, Pentecostals like to do more than hoop, holler, and dance. We do hoop, holler, and dance and I'm quite sure it will be no different on that night, but we also love to listen and learn. Kudos to Bishop Blake and his team for this choice. 

Jason St Clair:  Some people will forever remain in a box of prejudice, stagnant traditionalism, and regressive thinking. The fact that Pastor Joel Osteen is a speaker at the COGIC Holy Convocation is actually a big deal. This is tearing down that color barrier the more...

This is an opportunity for people to understand that we can celebrate and respect other methods of delivering the Word without the exhortation that we are used to. One thing I will say about Presiding Bishop Blake is that he does a wonderful job bringing and introducing different dynamics within the ministry. 

His home church, West Angeles speaks for itself. Bringing that culture to the International COGIC as a whole is great to witness. Anyway, so some of you out there are very much welcomed to complain about going to sleep and not putting your stamp of approval on him being a speaker...as for me, I will make sure that I am tuned in and listening with a receptive heart. I don't have to hear hollering and nice blues scales vocal runs or pentatonic scale based vocal runs to be ministered to.

 I'm not knocking that style of exhortation because there are times in which it blesses me especially when he or she are really exhorting about something with substance. However, over time, I have also grown accustomed to being blessed by teaching and straight talking. So, Pastor Joel Osteen, preach man!

  1. Not a surprise at all. If Blake had allowed a known homosexual in his home church pulpit to preach in the past, and turns his head to other COGIC shenanigans going on, why not allow another false prosperity preacher like Osteen, or even the Pope himself to grace the CCOGIC churches and conventions. Bring in the clowns. Thats what the people want.

    1. ��How sad is this. The Bible doesn't lie. We are now in the itching ear season. People do not want to abide by the Word of God. Hieracy is definitely on the rise. I pray that Christian leaders remember that, "judgement starts with the household of faith." My advise to those of the Christian faith, study your word and apply what God's Word says."

  2. LADY BROCK, DON'T BE SURPRISED BY NOTHING THAT BISHOP CHARLES EDWARD BLAKE,SR.DOES HE HAS TOTALLY DESTROYED COGIC. HE LETS HOMOSEXUALITY RUN RAPID IN THE CHURCH. AND HIS CHURCH ANYTHING GOES .MAJIC JOHNSON SON DRESSED IN DRAG,LESBIANS ON THE CHOIRS, HOMOSEXUALITY IN THE CHOIRS AND PULPIT. IT'S DISGUSTING. NO THERE'S A LOT OF FOLKS THAT ARE UPSET AND FRUSTRADED AND DISGUSTED. BUT THEY ARE SO INTO STAYING IN TRADITIONAL OF BEING COGIC. THEY ARE PRAYING AND STAYING. WHEN THEY SHOULD LEAVE AND STOP GIVING THERE FINANCES TO SUCH UNGODLY FOOLISHNESS. WHY WHY WHY WOULD ANY TRUE HOLINESS CHURCH HAVE A FALSE PROPHET TEACH AT YOUR HOLY CONVOCATION. YOU WOULDN'T. AND HE ALSO SUPPORTED 45 FOR PRESIDENT BUT SO DID BLAKE.THIS IS A SLAP IN THE OF THE SAINTS. BUT BLAKE IS A NARRISST ARROGANT PERSON. HE HAS NO CONTROL OVER HIS WIFE SO HE MAN HANDELS THE SAINTS. HE ALSO NOW ALONG WITH BROOKS,MACKLIN WANTS TO CHANGE THE RULES THAT A PRESIDING BISHOP CAN ONLY SERVE TWO TERMS.AFTER THEY BLAKE AND BROOKS HAVE BEEN ON THE GENERAL BOARD FOR GENERATIONS AND GENERATIONS. UNTIL MEN BECOME MEN AND STAND UP TO BLAKE AND THE COGIC MAFIA.AND THE WOMEN STOP BEING FOOLS AND STOP BEING SLAVES AND GIVING ALL THERE MONEY,SELLING DINNERS, FUNDRAISING OF ANY SORTS. THEN THEY ARE GETTING JUST WHAT THEY DESERVE. CAUSE GOD GIVES US COMMON SENSE. IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP OUT OF SLEEP. IT'S TIME FOR FOLKS TO BE THE CEO AND CFO OF THERE FINANCES AND STOP SUPPORTING THE SLAVE OWNER.LET THE MASTER GIVE HIS FINANCES TO HIS FRIENDS, BOYFRIEND'S, GIRLFRIEND'S OR WHOEVER.

  5. Marsha Marsha Marsha, you evidently don't know what true HOLINESS is.To write such foolish statement or either you are just in denial or just don't care what folks in leadership do. Cause Joel Osteen is a false lying teaching prophet who isn't saved nor teaches anything about HOLINESS OR HELL.He is a motivational speaker at best or a comic. COGIC was found on HOLINESS NOT FALSE DOCTRINE OR JOKE'S

  6. I've been on the record several times on this blog supporting Bishop Blake, however this is something I cannot support. The reasons why this should NEVER happen are obvious.

    Bishop Blake, I'm praying for you.
    Out of all the preachers in the world, you choose Joel Osteen to speak at our national convention??? This is disgusting and I'm offended.

    1. This is his way of publicly denouncing holiness.
      Side note, you must be baptized in Jesus name.

  7. Ms Ann you and your readers, LISTEN UP! ����������������I used to say a lot about Pastor Joel Osteen UNTIL I visited Lakewood. I shut my mouth after that. Why? Because the man and his staff is doing ministry on another level than MOST COGIC churches. So while y'all mad and gossiping over him coming to the Holy Convocation, maybe you should take a moment and embrace the fact that God is going to do something great with the COGIC with this man of God. There's a shift happening, and the ones mad and gossiping are the ones that will be lost.

  9. Don't know what y'all got out of Lakewood Church but it wasn't nothing about Holiness that I quarntee you didn't. Blake and his committe are wrong and completely out of order to bring Joel Osteen to a COGIC Convocation. How many COGIC folks have preached at Lakewood Church except Blake did he ? Cause he can't preach he would fit in at Lakewood. No one that truly preaches Holiness or Hell. Is going to preach at Lakewood Church unless they compromise themselves. But then again folks will do that.They love money and fame.

  10. Status over Doctrine. These are the times, men will not endure sound doctrine but will call unto themselves preachers who will give them what they want. I am (paraphrasing) of course..

  11. Now after reading this..COGIC has officially FALLEN AWAY!!! Joel Osteen doesn't believe in hell and believes there are "many" paths to Jesus!!! Mrs Ann watch this video interview with Oprah & Joel Osteen on YouTube : https://youtu.be/7XXUfTNCkzc

  12. I AM SAYING THIS.IF THESE FOLLOWING PRESIDING BISHOPS WERE LIVING JOEL OSTEEN WOULDN'T BE SPEAKING AT HOLY CONVOCATION OF THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST. BISHOP CHARLES HARRISON MASON, BISHOP L.H.FORD,BISHOP CHANDLER D.OWENS, BISHOP J.O.PATTERSON,SR.,BISHOP G.E.PATTERSON.THEY STOOD FOR HOLINESS OR HELL NO IN BETWEEN. JOEL OSTEEN DOESN'T EVEN BELIEVE IN WHAT COGIC STANDS FOR. BLAKE HAD OSTEEN COME TALK TO THE SCHOOL OF MEW BISHOPS LAST YEAR THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN SOMETHING WAS UP HIS SLEEVE.BLAKE HAS TAKEN COGIC FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY FROM THE OLE LANDMARK IN WHICH THE CHURCH WAS ROOTED AND FOUNDED. ANYTIME YOU LET ANYONE OR ANYTHING RIN RAPID IN THE HOUSE OF GOD YOU GET NOTHING BUT CONFUSION AND KAOS.THIS IS TRULY A FOLLOWERS OF DEPLORABLES.GOD IS NOT PLEASE WITH BLAKE NOR HIS FOLLOWERS THAT IS GOING ALONG WITH THIS FOOLISHNESS. BLAKE AND HIS GRONNIES ARE GOING TO BROUGHT TO OPEN SHAME.JUDGEMENT SHALL START IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. YES IN DEED.
