T.D. Jakes and The Potter’s House Celebrates 25 Years of Ministry, Service

The Potter’s House marked its 25th anniversary with a huge celebration Sunday and many familiar faces.

Videos of previous sermons and speakers over the past quarter-century moved church members and Bishop T.D. Jakes, who watched with his family.

Jakes started his first church in 1980 out of a storefront in Montgomery, West Virginia. The church moved and grew and Jakes later relocated to Dallas, where he founded The Potter’s House in 1996.

Since then, the congregation has grown to more than 30,000 members at its Dallas location, and campuses Frisco, Fort Worth, Denver and Los Angeles.

Only a fraction of the people whose lives have been touched by The Potter’s House were in attendance at the Dallas church Sunday, but many more watched online.

“We may have a 70,000 people who are watching, and we may have 8,000 people in the church,” said Frank Dyer, chief operating officer of The Potter’s House of Dallas.

Gospel legend Yolanda Adams was the guest worship artist for the anniversary celebration. Her voice filled the four walls with passion and praise.
