T. D. Jakes is the pastor of The Potter?s House, a 30,000?member megachurch in Dallas, Texas. This highly sought conference speaker, Grammy Award nominee, and entrepreneurial trainer was listed by Time magazine as one the twenty?five most influential evangelicals in America in 2005.

Here is a story of what is possible for ?those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose? (Romans 8:28). Thomas Dexter Jakes spent an impoverished childhood in the Appalachian Mountains. Entrepreneurial seeds were
planted and bore fruit when, as a teenager, he shouldered the responsibilities of running his deceased father?s business. He also overcame the seduction of drugs and crime.
