FRISCO — An eight-story cathedral opened in Frisco on Sunday, and the pastor with the largest U.S. congregation showed up to help dedicate the city's new landmark.
Joel Osteen took part in the celebration Sunday evening before a packed congregation. The new cathedral is part of the expansion of Elevate Life Church.
Osteen told worshipers to expect great things and to be faithful church members. "I hoped tonight you'll be inspired to say, hey — this is a place of destiny, and I'm a person of destiny. You know, we didn't just happen to show up in the year of 2012," he said.
Osteen added that his destiny was to grow Houston's Lakewood Church from 90 members to more than 43,000 members in attendance every week.
More special events will continue through Wednesday to dedicate the Cathedral of Frisco.
