Pastor Touré Roberts and Sarah Jakes Set to Tie the Knot Next Month
One Church International Pastor Touré Roberts has been called a heretic and opportunist after apologizing to Destiny’s Child and scolding the church for speaking against their questionable career choices.
But Bishop T.D. Jakes’ daughter Sarah Jakes simply calls him “babe.” The two are officially engaged to be married and will tie the knot next month.
The couple, both divorced with children, met in the spring of this year. At the time, the single mom who had her first child at 14, was promoting her book, Lost and Found, and taping an episode of the Dr. Phil Show, which aired April 1.
Jakes announced her split from her former NFL husband Robert Henson, who is also engaged to a new woman, two years ago.
Things progressed quickly with the future First Lady’s new preacher man. Roberts proposed September 22 over dinner, where he slipped an expensive diamond on Jakes’ finger that he purchased while the two were in Maui.
Their first date happened at Sarah’s insistence according to the pastor’s re-telling of the story.
During a church service where they ended up sitting next to each other, at the conclusion of the sermon, the speaker instructed congregants to hold hands with a neighbor and pray.
“I take her hand and it’s the first time our hands touch. I take her hand and I am not holding the hand of a stranger,” said Roberts in a video teaching on finding your soul mate.
“I didn’t know what it was at the time, but I’m like, you are somebody who means something seriously significant to me, just by the embrace of the hand. That’s how deep it is.”
He continued, “Then, we’re getting ready to part and she stepped out on faith and she said, ‘I’m gonna be in LA in a few weeks and you are taking me to dinner.’ I said, ‘Yes ma’am.’”
