(Christian Headlines) It’s a typical Friday afternoon and as soon as Bishop Jakes starts talking it becomes clear that not only does he have something to say, but that one better sit back and get ready to take notes.
In a culture and world that’s so uncertain, Bishop Jakes’s voice is what’s needed. Although Friday for most people is a down day, for Jakes its anything but.
Jakes has taken on a new assignment to create the STEAM Academy, a branch of his T.D. Jakes foundation, to meet the needs of kids and adults who have been left behind. “I want to be that bridge in helping people,” Jakes told Christian Headlines in an interview.
