Kathie Lee & Hoda: T.D. Jakes Megafest 2013
The Potters House’s T.D. Jakes is known for more than just his powerful preaching, as Kathie Lee & Hoda learned. He has also made waves across radio, TV, and film. The Potters House in Dallas has one message for people: win back the American family. He is hoping to do that through an even he is running called Megafest 2013, which will be taking place in Dallas later this month.
The last time Megafest was in America, it broke all records for the Georgia Dome, bringing in 100,000 people per day. This event has taken place in Johannesburg as well, so it takes place on an international level. People come from all over the world for this event. Guests include Jennifer Hudson, and Steve Harvey will be hosting, so it’s shaping up to be quite the show.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Fighting For The American Family
One of the biggest causes this event is fighting for is the mending of the American family, which has fallen by the wayside over the years. T.D. Jakes wants families of all sorts, broken or otherwise, to come to the event and seek help. You shouldn’t worry about what you have lost when a family is damaged, you have to build on what you have left.
Over the course of its several-day run, Megafest plans to transform those that attend it by, but not completely. T.D. Jakes acknowledged how much it takes for a family to be mended. However, he thought that a lot of good work will be done by his classes on fatherlessness. He wants to find a way to get the biological fathers back in the children’s lives, even if they are not in the lives of their mothers. With 70 percent of African American children in this country being born without a father and the problem increasing among Caucasians, this class couldn’t come at a better time.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Problems With Modern Fathers
T.D. Jakes thought that the biggest problem with the modern father is that there isn’t really any model for them to follow. Men never really grow up playing dad, unlike women who role play early on. What he wants to do is try to develop this model for men to follow, which will make the idea of taking on this fatherly role a lot easier to swallow.
