Jakes Divinity School prepares leaders through academic rigor with experiential learning, spiritual formation, and creative innovation that are necessary for the future of ministry in the Church and society. Our curriculum incorporates an emphasis on: effective preaching, vibrant worship, biblical thought, tacit knowledge, and quality instruction. The school is committed to integrating faith, scholarship, and integrity of the practice of ministry.
Our degree, diploma, and certificate programs relate to the multidimensional foci of Bishop T.D. Jakes’ life and ministry which includes: the art of presentation, leadership, entrepreneurship, global humanitarianism, entertainment, and media. We nurture students to apply their hearts, heads, and hands – hearts of compassion and love for a fragile world in need of God’s love; heads that wander in search of God’s truth; and, hands that work to advance the Kingdom of God in the world.
