We've been curious about Oprah's visit to Lakewood Church ever since the queen of all media was spotted in the Houston audience with Tyler Perry back in November.

Now we know the visit was part of an extended, behind-the-scenes interview with Joel and Victoria Osteen for Oprah's Next Chapter, a new show in which Winfrey gets in-depth with everyone from celebrities like George Lucas, Paula Deen and Steven Tyler to communities like American Hasidic Jews.

Oprah's Next Chapter describes Lakewood as the largest church in the United States and calls Osteen "one of the most influential preachers of our time."

The preview clip below shows Oprah might be better than Barbara Walters these days at asking blunt questions, including "Where does the money come from that you live this life with?" and "How do you keep your ego in check?"

The Osteens' episode will air on Sunday night at 8 p.m. on OWN. Will you be watching?
