America’s Most Influential Christian to open Destiny Church Conference

Bishop T.D. Jakes, voted America’s Most Influential Christian for 2005*, will open the Destiny Churches 2006 Conference at Manukau’s Telstra Stadium this Friday.

Featured as the cover story in the February 2005 edition of Time Magazine, Bishop Jakes is numbered among the 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America. The CEO of the Potter’s House of Dallas Inc., his church has grown from 50 families to a membership of 30,000 over nine years. Rivaling many corporations, his ministry employs 400 staff members, including full-time finance, human resources, information technology, material distributions, public relations, publications and television production departments. In recent times Bishop Jakes has been a key contributor to the Hurricane Katrina Relief efforts, with resource provision and relocation of displaced families.

Presidents and international statesmen have sought Bishop Jakes’ counsel. He has frequently been invited to the White House to meet with Presidents Bush and Clinton. He has been guest on several US news programs as a source of spiritual counsel: such programs include ‘Oprah,’ CNN’s ‘People in the News,’ ‘Larry King Live’ and ‘America’s Black Forum.’

“I am honoured to bring this world-class ministry to our country. I hope people seize the opportunity to come and experience a true spiritual giant in Bishop TD Jakes,” says Bishop Brian Tamaki, Senior Minister of Destiny Churches New Zealand.

Also featuring at the weekend event will be Bishop Eddie L. Long who Pastors New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta. With a membership of 25,000, Bishop Long is also numbered amongst America’s most influential Christian Leaders and was the officiating minister at the funeral of the late Coretta Scott King.

Friday nights opening event (commencing at 7.30pm) will also feature the official launch of Bishop Brian Tamaki's autobiography titled, 'More than meets the eye.' Described by the Sunday News as 'an explosive and revealing read,' the stage will be set for a dynamic weekend event.
