One of the most prolific preachers in America, Bishop T.D. Jakes’ influence is not limited to the states.
John Dramani Mahama, who has been president of The Republic of Ghana since 2012, spoke of the Dallas leader in glowing terms during his trip to the country on the West Coast of Africa.
“Bishop Jakes you are well placed and qualified to co-author a new chapter of leadership in our shared history,” said President Mahama.
“You exemplify some of the core qualities of leadership; perseverance, achievements, and provision for the marginal and vulnerable among us.”
Jakes ventured to the African country as part of the weeklong 2014 Impact Summit organized by the Christian Action Faith Ministries (CAFM), at the Action Chapel International in Accra.
His last visit was in 2006.
During his most recent trip, the New York Times best-selling author, movie producer and philanthropist inspired leaders to overcome economic challenges through creativity and by maximizing their own potential.
According to Ghana Web, utilizing principles from his latest book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash your Inborn Drive, Jakes told IMPACT attendees, “One thing you must always realize is that the giraffe always eats from the tops of the trees. And if we have some giraffes in this room you have to eat on the level of your vision.”
