This is The Place where ingenuity, empowerment, insights, entrepreneurship, and more coalesce to cultivate communities for a greater purpose. The visionary and architect behind The Place, Bishop T.D. Jakes, has been a dynamic presence in the North Texas region for over two decades, particularly in the Dallas area. Whether spearheading some of the nation’s largest leadership and faith-based conferences, including the International Pastors & Leadership Conference to MegaFest, Bishop Jakes earnestly believes in his community.
To this end, The Place was conceived to embrace the diverse needs of people from all socioeconomic backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities, and genders in the North Texas region. While there will be unique opportunities to address the evolving needs of the collective, the chief areas to be cultivated include: entrepreneurship, health and wellness, education, economic empowerment, and humanitarian efforts, among other areas of community focus. With more than 30,000 members calling The Potter’s House “home,” and more than 7 million residents living in the North Texas area, The Place is thoughtfully designed to accommodate the growing needs of the community for years to come.
This is The Place where corporate executives, employers, community leaders, educators, ministry leaders, and current and prospective residents will congregate for myriad special events, activities, and programs – all under one place — The Place!
As one of the nation’s fastest-growing regions, North Texas offers residents a “big city” experience sans the “big city” cost of living. The burgeoning populace includes college students, entrepreneurs, executives, parents, and home owners, among other segments. To this end, The Place is where residents and leaders in the North Texas community can participate in an artful exchange of ideas regarding commerce and education to arts and culture. In the coming years, executives and city officials partnering with The Dallas Festival of Ideas, Dallas International Film Festival, or the City of Dallas are encouraged to leverage The Place as a cultural hub for unveiling exciting community initiatives.
It is with utmost enthusiasm that Bishop T.D. Jakes welcomes you to participate in the dynamic exchange of ideas with millions of great minds in the North Texas community. If you want to scale your professional network, ideate with the creative community, or propose a new community program, this is your place.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” proclaimed the late Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa, philanthropist, and winner of a joint Nobel Prize. However, from Texas to New York – and everywhere in between – the education chasm continues to expand across underserved communities, including the North Texas region. In an effort to mend this education deficient, The Place will provide a haven for educators and students (of all ages) to exchange ideas, and uncover solutions that can positively transform the world. The Place needs you – TED Talk presenters, esteemed educators, Fortune 500 companies, and students – to explore the intricacies of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and more.
Bishop T.D. Jakes emboldens the North Texas community, including those with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia, to leverage this revolutionary facility as one would any educational institution. Additionally, if you do have a learning disability, The Place provides myriad resources, as well as instructors to help close the education gap, regardless of the subject matter. Glean insights from dynamic lectures, workshops, and more in a nurturing environment, so that you can be armed with the most powerful weapon in the world – a first-rate education!
While some adages defy the status quo, the affectionately crafted adage – “everything is bigger in Texas” — continues to reflect life in the Lone Star State. Subsequently, it should come as no surprise that The Place is the premier facility showcasing the most expansive offerings in event planning and management.

The facility includes: over 150,000 square feet of space; 60 generous classrooms; two exclusive executive dining and reception areas; a breathtaking ballroom; a Hilton-inspired commercial kitchen; and myriad other amenities and interior specifications. The overall guest experience can be a comfortable one, with various lighting and temperature controls and soundproof air walls to prevent noise bleed, so you can focus on innovating the next big thing!
