SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pastor Joel and Victoria Osteen will host "America's Night of Hope" August 8th from San Francisco's famed AT&T Park, and Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest religious broadcaster and America's most-watched faith channel, will be on hand as the event's official broadcast partner. The exciting and highly anticipated event combines dynamic worship and special music, impacting testimonies, and an inspiring message from Pastor Joel Osteen, one of America's most popular inspirational speakers.
This will be the seventh annual "America's Night of Hope" event for Osteen, a New York Times best-selling author and pastor of the 52,000-strong Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. He and wife Victoria hosted the first "America's Night of Hope" in New York City in 2009, filling the new 51,000-seat Yankee Stadium in the venue's first non-baseball event. The event returned to Yankee Stadium last year, and has also been held in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, Nationals Park in Washington D.C., and Marlins Park in Miami.
"Since the beginning of 'America's Night of Hope' six years ago, TBN has had the privilege of partnering with Joel and Victoria to broadcast this annual, life-changing event to millions of viewers around the world," said TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch. "From the music and testimonies to the timely message from Pastor Joel, this is an event that is impacting America and the world with hope and expectation."
In addition to an encouraging word from Victoria Osteen and Pastor Joel's inspirational message, "America's Night of Hope" from San Francisco will feature music and worship from Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Cruse-Ratcliff, Alexandra Osteen, Jonathan Osteen, and Lakewood Church's dynamic band and worship team. Also on hand will be Pastor Joel's mother, author and inspirational speaker Dodie Osteen, who will share her moving testimony about being miraculously healed from cancer.
Pastor Joel expressed his anticipation for the San Francisco event. "Victoria and I love the people of California," he said. "We're excited to be at AT&T Park for the first time, and we believe everyone who attends will be uplifted and filled with an expectation that their best days are still to come."
Matthew Crouch noted that Joel Osteen's ministry is consistently one of the top rated programs on the Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks, and has helped to make TBN America's most-watched faith channel. "Pastor Joel has been called the voice of hope and faith for a new generation," he said. "We're thrilled to partner with Joel and Victoria in 'America's Night of Hope' from San Francisco, and to share this inspirational and life-changing evening with our viewers all over the world."
"America's Night of Hope" will be taped live August 8th at San Francisco's AT&T Park, and broadcast on TBN Sunday, August 9th, at 7 p.m. Pacific Time (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern).
