The Beginning 

Jakes’ ascent to megachurch leader and visionary had humble beginnings in West Virginia. In 1979, with little resources and only ten members, he founded Greater Emmanuel Temple of Faith, which quickly gained regional popularity and grew to over 1,000 members in only a decade, illustrating the young pastor’s great promise.
