Bishop T.D. Jakes, pastor of The Potter’s House in Dallas, TX, is celebrating the release of his 40th book.
The latest title for the pastor who is also an entrepreneur and movie producer is, Soar!: Build Your Vision from the Ground. It is available wherever fine books are sold on Tuesday, October 10th. It also topped the October 2017 BCNN1/BCBC National Bestsellers List due to pre-release popularity.
The Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce and Frontiers of Flight Museum hosted Jakes this week for a discussion and a celebration of the milestone.
Jakes views Soar as one of his most important works. So important that he held a one-day SOAR Conference at The Potter’s House on Saturday where he spoke, was interviewed, and took questions from the audience regarding the principles in the book.
The synopsis of the book is as follows:
You don’t have to be an entrepreneur to think like one and take flight with your dreams.
Too often we remain in jobs that stifle our souls and leave us on the runway of opportunity with the engine of our deepest passion stalled, watching others make their personal vision a reality and build a legacy for their children-the opposite of what God intends for us. But it’s never too late to get your dreams off the ground! If you long to maximize your unique abilities and aptitudes, if you strive to combine personal fulfillment with professional satisfaction, if you dream of creating exceptional goods and offering transformative services and fulfilling God’s destiny for you, then you are ready to SOAR!
In SOAR! T.D. Jakes reveals how to build the uniquely personal vision within each of us into our special contribution to the world. Blending the practical business acumen of a successful, global CEO with the dynamic inspiration of a life coach, SOAR! provides the tools needed to ignite our imaginations into action and challenges us to embrace our God-given purpose as we align our character and creativity with our careers.
Bridging both the corporate and nonprofit worlds, SOAR! is a practical and easy-to-follow flight plan for launching the entrepreneurial drive inside each of us. It provides an inspiring look into the mindset of people who don’t wait to see what will happen but strategically build the wings that will take them to new heights. So buckle your seat belts and prepare for liftoff-you have been cleared to fly beyond your fears, to absolutely SOAR!
Jakes will be at the Barnes & Noble on 5th Avenue in New York City this coming Tuesday to sign copies of Soar.
It is available now for pre-order.
Video from the Soar Conference will be available at BishopsVillage.com.
