Bishop T. D. Jakes has surprised his daughter by handing over the giant Woman, Thou Art Loosed ministry to her.

The prolific preacher passed the baton at the grand finale conference, noting that this was not an ending, but a beginning.

He said that it is not a weakness for a man to empower a woman while instructing his daughter not to drop the mic as she picks up his.

Anointing his daughter with oil, Jakes said, “With every drop of oil that falls upon your head, may the strength and power of the Almighty God rest upon your life.”

The Woman, Thou Art Loosed! conference has run for more than 25 years to become a global movement.

Jakes symbolically passed the torch to his daughter to carry on his legacy of ministry and conference for women.

Jakes Roberts will assume the role as leader of the next generation of women’s leadership events in addition to her own ministry and conference, Woman Evolve.
