As we start a new year in 2015, Lakewood Church is holding its 4th annual Total Life Challenge.
In January 2012, Lakewood held it’s first annual Health and Fitness Challenge. Pastor John Bowman, director of men’s ministry, and Jackie Garner, director of women’s ministry, with the blessing of Pastor Joel Osteen, entrusted Samir Becic to use his expertise in devising a program that will engage the followers at Lakewood to be proactive in their health. To do so, Samir put together a strong team of experts to aid the congregation of Lakewood in becoming more educated in terms of healthy lifestyle.
Total Life Challenge 2015 will take place on Sundays from Jan. 4 through Feb. 22 at 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Mission Control (3rd Floor) at Lakewood Church.
The “Fast Start” 2015: 21 Day Daniel Fast begins Monday, Jan. 5 at 6 a.m. to Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. What are you fasting for? Let’s start the new year off right!
Many celebrities are supporting this cause. Special celebrity guest for the 2015 Total Life Challenge is health and news anchor Melissa Wilson from Fox 26. She was also honored by HFR as one of the fittest news anchors in Houston, and she is a great mother, businesswoman and ambassador for a healthy lifestyle,
In support of Samir Becic and his team, with the blessing of Pastor Steve Austin, who was named by HFR as one of the fittest pastors in Houston, Lakewood is hosting a series of health and fitness classes that meet weekly. Pastor John Bowman was also named one of the fittest pastors in Houston.
In response to Lakewood’s efforts to make the congregation healthy and fit, Becic says, “With Lakewood, one of the largest churches in America putting so much effort into the health and fitness of its congregation, it is a great motivation and influence for other congregations to follow. I am thankful to Pastors Joel and Victoria Osteen and their congregation for giving me their blessing to use my knowledge and experience to provide the information and guidance necessary to make this challenge a success to all the participants involved. It also helps that Pastor Joel Osteen is a very fit person who encourages his congregation to live a healthier lifestyle – he believes that by being a healthier version of yourself, you can become all that God has created you to be.”
