June 9, 1957
On this day in 1957, little Thomas Dexter Jakes was born and became Bishop T. D. Jakes, one of the most popular African American pastors of all time. His church, The Potter’s House located in Dallas, Texas servers about 30,000 members and services are televised on TBN, BET, Daystar, The Word Network and the Miracle Channel. Jakes has written over 30 books, been involved with over eight movies (including 2013’s Black Nativity and 2014’s Heaven is for Real) and he has been married to the same woman, Serita Ann Jamison, since 1981. The big pastor with the big voice looks intimidating in photos, but in person, is one of the nicest guys that you’ll ever meet.
