In 1996, Bishop T.D. Jakes moved his church of 50 families from Charleston, W.Va. to Dallas and founded The Potter's House church. Today more than 30,000 members comprise this multiracial, nondenominational church with 48 active ministries. The ministries include programs for teenage mothers and abused women, a homeless outreach, a GED literacy program, an outreach for drug and alcohol abusers, and an AIDS ministry. Another highlight of The Potter's House is the Prison Outreach Ministry. More than 325 prisons in 35 states have been impacted through this ministry. The ministry's primary focus is to equip individuals by providing practical avenues for re-entering society.
