Apprising Ministries continues our coverage of the rise of Seeker Driven evangelical prophet-leader Steven Furtick with his hybrid attractional/Word Faith message I first called Furtickism in Steven Furtick Bringin’ On Word Faith And The Pastrixes. No one else really preaches this so-called “audacious faith”…yet, that is.
There are those who simply dismiss this information believing that Furtick is out of touch with the genuine Christian faith. That he is; however, Steven Furtick is a mainstay in the emerging ecumenical magisterium growing up around the Elephant Room. Here’s a couple of telling tweets concerning Furtick and its co-hosts:
Steven Furtick already has enough clout to land Word Faith mogul T.D.

Now consider in Preaching At Lakewood Church Dream Come True For Steven Furtick I told you that back on August 29th Steven Furtick got a chance to live his dream to preach at Osteen’s Lakewood Church. Remember now, I’ve already shown you clearly Joel Osteen Has Influenced Steven Furtick Longer Than You May Know.
Steven Furtick has quite literally said he believes that Joel Osteen Is A Great Man Of God. So, in closing this, for now, here’s the exclusive video of Steven Furtick at Lakewood Church with Joel Osteen himself in attendance:
