Bishop T.D. Jakes undeniably possesses one of the most recognizable voices. His booming baritone register is as distinctive and unique as his platform as one of the world’s best-known preachers.

But Jakes’ calling to minister the gospel of Jesus Christ reaches far beyond the four walls of his 30,000-plus member mega-church complex in Dallas, Texas—The Potter’s House.

To date, he is a New York Times best-selling author, a filmmaker, a humanitarian, and an entrepreneur in addition to being a dynamic preacher.

Yet, by his own admission, his prominent rise is an unlikely story. He accepted the call to ministry and started pastoring a small church in West Virginia in the late 1970s.

Today, he’s an internationally respected man of faith with tremendous influence across the religious, political, and film worlds.
