Wiki

Thomas Dexter "T. D." Jakes Sr. (born June 9, 1957) is the American chief pastor of The Potter's House, a non-denominational megachurch, with 30,000 members, located in Dallas, Texas. T.D. Jakes church services and evangelistic sermons are broadcast on The Potter's Touch, which airs on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Black Entertainment Television, the Daystar Television Network, The Word Network and The Miracle Channel in Canada. Other aspects of Jakes' ministry include an annual revival called "MegaFest" (which draws more than 100,000 people during that period of time), an annual women's conference called "Woman Thou Art Loosed", and gospel music recordings.

In the fall of 2009, Jakes planned on launching a secular daily talk show, syndicated through the CBS Television Distribution group; however, economic troubles in the industry may put his new program into jeopardy.

On January 20, 2009, Jakes led the early morning prayer service for President Barack Obama at St. John's Church in Washington, DC, according to NBC News.
