REV. SARAH JAKES ROBERTS
This trailblazing young preacher, writer and wife juggles her time between her faith, her family and her business. She is redefining what it means to be a woman of faith and has broken down barriers to become one of the nation’s rising female voices discussing family, faith, gender, race and culture. She has a unique way of reaching people seeking to make peace with their past as they maximize the present and strengthen their relationship with God.
Roberts is the daughter of Bishop T. D. Jakes, and she and her husband co-pastor The Potter’s House (LA) and The Potter’s House (Denver).
Roberts’s ministry grows from her life experiences and her personal testimony overcoming the stigma of teen pregnancy, insecurities, toxic relationships and depression. Despite her challenges, she has evolved to become a powerhouse of a preacher, mother, entrepreneur, wife and a bestselling author.
She launched Women Evolve, a ministry that has already reached and impacted thousands of women since its inception in 2017. She is the recipient of many honors and awards, and has made appearances in a spectrum of media outlets including Good Morning America, The Today Show and the 700 Club.
Rev. Sarah Jakes Roberts and her preacher husband, Touré, have six children and spend their time jetting between their two churches in Denver and LA. Sarah graduated in the top 10% of her high school class at age 16, and went on to study journalism at Texas Christian University.
