VIDEO: Hecklers escorted out of Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in SW Houston

HOUSTON -- Six people were reportedly escorted out of Lakewood Church in southwest Houston this morning for heckling senior pastor Joel Osteen.

A video on Twitter shows people being escorted out of the former sports arena amid cheers. Osteen is seen at the pulpit saying, "Thank you all for your patience and we'll just continue to receive what God has for us. It's a good day to be alive."

Twitter user Anwar Richardson posted this afternoon on social media, "Crazy scene. Sixth person ejected from Lakewood Church by police and security."

It's unknown at this time what the group was saying during the service.

We've reached out to Lakewood for a response and will have more on this story as we learn more.
