Discover the lessons Thomas Dexter Jakes learned as a young boy growing up in Appalachian poverty. Experience the victory and redemption of a young man who faced – and overcame – the seduction of drugs and crime. Witness the entrepreneurial seeds that were planted as he shouldered the responsibilities of his deceased father’s business as a teenager. Then, behold his rise from pastor of a tiny rural congregation to the leader of a 30,000-member megachurch in one of America’s largest cities.
Through his experiences you will discover how you, too, can:
• Develop your own God-given vision
• See miracles in your life
• Overcome overwhelming obstacles
• Change your part of the world
• Be led by the Holy Spirit
You, too, can live a life of faith, blessing, and favor. Most importantly, you will witness the biblical truth: “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
“A brilliant, well-researched weaving together of numerous sources showing how T. D. Jakes has become one of North America’s most influential preachers.” – Warren Bird, Research Director, Leadership Network and coauthor of The Multi-site Church Revolution
