A Message from President and Dean

Dr. Antipas L. Harris

“I am thrilled to be part of a vision that transforms lives. Jakes Divinity School (JDS) is an ideal opportunity for those in pursuit of strong scholarship and experiential learning from a Spirit-filled perspective. The walls that once separated the mind, the heart, and the hands are now crumbled in a generation that is motivated by spirituality that integrates all of life.

Through our education partners, global reach, and spiritual emphasis, JDS is uniquely positioned to train leaders to respond to a deep yearning for integrated learning. Our founder, Bishop T.D. Jakes has exemplified multi-dimensional leadership and ministry. His living legacy inspires students to think deeply, imagine what could be, and reach globally. As a young boy, I dreamed of the opportunity to serve the Lord in powerful ways. Theological education became a doorway to opportunities imagined but were beyond my reach. I believe God will take you further than you may be prepared to go. Invest today for the ministry leadership opportunities in your future.”

In Christ,
