T.D. Jakes is one of the world’s most revered masterminds. As a faithful pastor, he leverages his pioneering vision and instinct to serve others in areas extending beyond the church. Named “America’s Treasure” by Oprah Winfrey, Jakes is a master communicator for all ages. While many of his followers have familiarized themselves with Bishop’s sermons, few know that he also relishes making people laugh, especially when trying to overcome life’s most daunting circumstances.
