FORT WORTH - A longtime dream for Bishop T.D. Jakes has come to Fort Worth.

Now, a church community has a place to call home. After years leading the Potter's House in Dallas, Jakes has spread his ministry west to a new facility in Fort Worth.

It's a massive, nearly eight-acre campus. On Monday, city officials and church leaders held their official ribbon cutting ceremony. It comes a day after the new sanctuary was packed with more than 2,000 people for Sunday worship service.

Pastor Patrick Winfield told News 8 Monday their new sanctuary and community center will be more than just a church building. The goal of The Potter's House expansion is to be part of the improvements in Woodhaven, including a good working relationship with law enforcement and the business community.
