The Cayman Islands Legislative Assembly was graced with the presence of none other than international minister and mega church leader extraordinaire, Bishop T.D. Jakes on Wednesday, 13th November.
Bishop Jakes, who was visiting the Cayman Islands on the ‘Faith & Family Cruise,’ which sales from November 9th-16th and visits the Bahamas, Jamaica, Key West and the Cayman Islands, blessed the Honorable House with prayers during the morning’s proceedings.
Bishop Jakes was flanked by both the Cayman Islands Premier, the Honorable Alden McLaughlin, as well as the Speaker of the House, the Honorable Mckeeva Bush.
David White – twin brother of George Town Member of the Legislative Assembly Chris White, noted:
“….. we were only introduced to him. When he went up to pray, I took a few pictures but I think the person who knows more would be McKeeva Bush as he was with him.”
According to the Bishop’s Wikipedia page, T. D. Jakes, is a pastor, author and filmmaker.
He is the head pastor of The Potter’s House, a non-denominational American mega church. Jakes's church services and evangelistic sermons are broadcast on The Potter's Touch, which airs on Lightsource.com, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Black Entertainment Television, the Daystar Telivision Network and The Word Network.

He also hosted the T.D. Jakes Show, a nationally syndicated talk show produced by Tegna Media and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, before the show’s cancellation in March of 2017.
