The Potter’s House, Bishop T.D. Jakes’ church in Dallas, Texas, celebrated its 25th anniversary on July 4 with fanfare and powerful prophetic words along with 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, calling forth apostles, prophets, pastors and evangelists.

Jakes, whom Time magazine called “America’s Best Preacher” and “The Next Billy Graham” found a home in Dallas for The Potter’s House in 1996. It has grown to a 30,000-member global ministry emphasizing life-changing local and global initiatives.

At the anniversary service, The Potter’s House looked to the future of the work the ministry continues in all facets of faith, entertainment and business.

In July, Jakes announced plans to improve the quality of life for people of color with his Atlanta revitalization project and debuted a new sermon series on network REVOLT entitled Kingdom Culture With T.D. Jakes featuring sermons and conversations filmed at The Potter’s House.

The Potter’s House reaches an audience of more than 22 million online, and Jakes’ trusted voice is heard in more than 80 million homes each day. CR
