Joel Osteen Tweets Lakewood Church Is ‘Receiving Anyone Who Needs Shelter’

Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church in Houston tweeted this morning they are now “receiving people who need shelter” from the hurricane:

Osteen himself tweeted that the doors are open:

This comes following a ton of social media outcry over Lakewood not opening its doors to hurricane victims. A statement from the church last night said, “We have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution center for those in need. We are prepared to house people once shelters reach capacity. Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm in helping our fellow citizens rebuild their lives.”
