Joyce Meyer is one of the most popular Christian personalities
in the world and her influence is growing rapidly. With sermons on
receiving emotional healing, overcoming the past, freedom from
condemnation, and more, Joyce Meyer has grown from an associate pastor
at a local St. Louis church to a world wide speaker, author, and
conference host. As evidence of this immense influence, the Joyce Meyer
ministry now has a daily television program that can be seen by upwards
of 2.5 billion people worldwide. In addition, the ministry has a radio
program that is available on hundreds of stations throughout North
America. Furthermore, Joyce Meyer conferences and seminars are well
attended both in America and abroad. The ministry, which once began in
the basement of a home, now requires hundreds of employees and millions
of dollars a month to operate. However, Joyce Meyer’s life is
not the story of a women born into success. Rather, it is the story of
a life which began amidst horrid parental abuse by her father and
continued through an abusive first marriage. But, in what seemed
impossible to many, her life now offers hope of God’s transforming
power to millions worldwide.
