Bishop T.D. Jakes has a new television show and it promises to show an entirely different side of the famous preacher. T.D. Jakes, founder of the 30,000-member Potter’s House in Dallas, is adding television host to his list of duties.
The show is built around his book ‘Instinct.’ Jakes will use the book for telling stories about people who have brought about change or made a difference by tapping into their abilities to achieve productive and satisfying lives, according to the announcement.
The program started its trial run on August 17 and will air daily until September 11 of this year.
“It’s nice to be challenged again at this stage in my life,” he said of the new talk show. “I’m 58 years old and I have the opportunity to do something new and fresh and exciting.”
Jakes says while he’ll still draw on his faith in the new venture, he has no plans to preach. He says the show will reveal a different side of himself.
