A televangelist is defined as a priest or minister who devotes a great deal of his or her ministry to broadcasts on television. These broadcasts are regularly viewed and listened to by a nationwide (and/or international) audience.

The word televangelist is a portmanteau word (the word portmanteau means a combination of two words). It is a combination of the word television and the word evangelist. Many televangelists are regular pastors in their own halls of worship. However, a larger audience follows their television or radio programmes.

Since the early days of broadcasting on radio, evangelists have been using various means of electronic and print media to convert people to Christianity. Joel Osteen is the pastor of Lakewood Church, but international audiences know him better because of his successful book and his popular show on television.
