He was at Broadcast House Monday morning sharing his excitement about coming to the motor city.
“It’s a great night in the stadium, two and a half hours of music and inspiration and you know I just believe people will come out, we’ll let them know that there are good things in the future and it’s really a time to let go of the old and get ready for the new things god wants to do,” Osteen said.
The Osteen’s are expecting tens of thousands of people to attend the Night of Hope at Comerica Park.
“We felt that Detroit was a city that needs hope, we all do but it just felt right for us, we have good support here it’s a lot of good people so it just felt good be here,” Osteen said.
