The Potter's House
Our prayer for you is that the God of all grace anoints you with fresh oil and His precious Spirit illuminates the Word as you read. May He empower you to effectively communicate to others the vibrant hope that He has given you to persevere the struggles that you have overcome and continue to overcome.
Furthermore, my wife and I pray that your home be a reflection of the joy and peace that God has promised to all of His children who follow Him. We bless your children, the fruit of your body. We speak life into your marriage, your ministry and your mission.
As you lie down at night we pray for more than sleep. We pray for rest. Rest in Him and arise refreshed for we need you. Your prayers, your support and your love are important to us. So we pray you will take care of yourself.
-Bishop and Mrs. T. D. Jakes
The Potter's House is a nondenominational church, located in the southern sector of Dallas, Texas, founded in 1996. Since 1996, The Potter's House has grown from 50 families to more than 30,000 members who step out in force, inspired and spiritually armed by Bishop T. D. Jakes to help others in their communities and across the world. Christian Today and the Dallas Morning News tag The Potter's House as one of the fastest growing churches in the nation.
Men comprise 45% of the total congregation, which is unusually high for a mostly minority church. The church brings together the down-and-out, the homeless and released offender to sit beside the up-and-coming, the celebrity and the community leader. They worship and serve together in one or more of the 59 different ministries within the church, including GED/literacy programs, AIDS outreach, homeless outreach, male mentorship, a debutante program and one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing prison ministries complete with a prison satellite network broadcasting to more than 260 prisons across the nation.
