THE POTTER'S HOUSE COMMUNITY
Founded in 1996, The Potter’s House is non-denominational, multicultural church led by Senior Pastor, T.D. Jakes. With more than 30,000 members on its rolls, The Potter’s House is consistently ranked among the largest and most influential churches in the U.S.
The Potter’s House operates as a non-profit organization with its principal campus in southern Dallas. Accelerated growth and shifting demographics have necessitated expansion to additional sites in North Dallas (Frisco, Texas,) Fort Worth, Texas and Denver.
Deeply rooted in the local and global communities, the Potter’s House charter is to extend a “hand of help to the needy, a heart of compassion to the hurting, and a message of empowerment to the disenfranchised. “
Church Demographics: Men comprise 45% of the total congregation, which is unusually high for a mostly minority church. The church brings together the down-and-out, the homeless and other walks of life to worship and serve together in one or more of the 59 different ministries. The ministries include: GED/literacy programs, AIDS outreach, homeless outreach, male mentorship, a debutante program and one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing prison ministries.
