TD Jakes' Church Celebrates 25 Years With Prophetic Words, Vision for Future
Bishop T.D. Jakes' Dallas, Texas, church, The Potter's House, celebrated its 25th anniversary on Sunday, July 4, with fanfare, memories and powerful prophetic words, and the signing of a vision statement by Jakes and other bishops. Speakers included both Jakes and Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams of NDW Ministries in Accra, Ghana.
"There is before us a divine and a holy assignment that I believe to be very significant for what God would have us to do in the 21st century," Jakes told the church before introducing the vision statement. Duncan-Williams' message affirmed this word, prophetically calling forth from the church apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists for "the end-time revival" who would "shake nations and ... change our world."
Jakes, whom Time magazine once called "America's Best Preacher" and "The Next Billy Graham" found a home in Dallas for The Potter's House in 1996. Since that time, it has grown to the 30,000-member global ministry with an emphasis on life-changing local and global initiatives.
At the anniversary service, the Dallas-based church celebrated these feats while looking to the future of the work the ministry continues to do in all facets of faith, entertainment and business. Earlier this month, Jakes announced plans to improve the quality of life for people of color with his Atlanta revitalization project.
