This Saturday: T.D. Jakes and Family to Join Travelers on 7-Day Journey at Sea

Jakes Calls for Recharging and Replenishment Amongst Busyness of Daily Life

he average person struggles to go more than ten minutes without checking their phones as more than one-third of Americans say they don’t have enough time in their day to get things done. In today’s fast-paced and busy world, it is challenging to find time to stop and reflect. But global spiritual leader Bishop T.D. Jakes is embarking on a seven-day journey at sea with the first-ever Faith & Family Cruise, Nov. 9-16, that includes carving out time to be offline. Passengers will be encouraged to embrace solitude as a means of allowing God to steer their own ships of life. 

Updates with video footage and photos will be distributed to media during the cruise. To sign up for updates email

In addition to the beauty and serenity of the Caribbean islands, passengers will enjoy programming favorites from Jakes’ bi-annual international MegaFest event, such as panels featuring the Jakes family—Serita Jakes, Cora Jakes Coleman and Sarah Jakes Roberts—and other special guests; performances by recently engaged Kenny Lattimore, Jonathan Butler, Pretty Ricki and more; themed parties; and a variety of family games and entertainment.

“Life moves at a fast pace. It is imperative that we all take time to relax and reflect," said Jakes, senior pastor of The Potter’s House. "You cannot move forward and understand the seeds God has sown for your life without taking time to practice solitude. This active inner reflection brings replenishment and can birth a new beginning for you.”

For the first time, a new conference programming track called “Women of Influence,” is being debuted on the cruise. The program is designed for women to learn, network, connect and explore the intersectionality of their faith and corporate America. The highly engaged group of women will participate in specialized events and excursions throughout the duration of the cruise.

United MegaCare, the global humanitarian outreach organization of The Potter’s House, is also working with emergency relief organizations to provide assistance and support for those impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Donations can be made by texting T5DR to 28950.
