Still no leads to who is responsible for the stolen $600,000 from Joel Osteen's church, March 9.

According to the Christian Post, Lakewood Church, the largest church in America, where Joel Osteen is the pastor, announced to AP that a $25,000 reward is being offered for information, on March 25.

Crime Stoppers, the national organization aimed at preventing and solving crimes in the U.S., announced the reward for information. No arrests have yet been made in the case.

If Lakewood brings in $600,000 each week (52 weeks of the year), that would be an annual total of a whooping $31,200,000.

Lakewood Church Sunday service brings in approximately 43,500 members - that's an average of $13.79 per person. As you can see, there is power in numbers.

As sophisticated and advanced as Lakewood, you would expect a complex security system that monitors all the transferring of monies. Even if the camera's (providing they have cameras) did not pick up a photo of the theft, God was and is watching at all times.

Do you think the $25,000 reward will move someone to reveal information leading to the theft?
