“Others can inspire you, but ultimately the only thing that empowers you is what lies within you and learning how to better utilize what you’ve been given,” Bishop T.D. Jakes explained in the book Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive.

Here is your opportunity to tap into this power and unleash your potential.

Jakes is bringing more than a powerhouse of conferences with MegaFest–he’s proposing a new way of life for us to live. The best-author and entrepreneur will be offering the popular conferences of Woman Thou Art Loosed (WTAL) and ManPower during the four-day event. The Woman Thou Art Loosed conference will be “uniting with women from around the globe in one of the most inspirational and uplifting conferences created for women from all walks of life,” the MegaFest website shared.

Guys, there is something great for you as well in ManPower. This popular gathering is calling all “men to take off the masks society has forced them to wear as a result of their circumstances and experiences, and talk about the situations and struggles that affect the lives of all men.”

Sound life-transforming? Well, the largest faith and family multi-day festival in the United States is.

But the adults are not the only ones encouraged in living a new way of life—MegaKidz will empower your kiddos to live a life on purpose as well.

MegaKidz powered by Destiny World and MegaYouth by Fire Code will feature age-appropriate entertainment and informative sessions for your kids to enjoy.

While the children are having fun and learning, parents will enjoy an all-star lineup of speakers that will include Bishop T.D. Jakes and Mrs. Serita Jakes. Pastor Joseph Prince of Singapore’s New Creation Church, Pastor Sheryl Brady, John Gray, JJ Hairston, Dr. Caroline Leaf, Bishop Jacqueline E. McCullough and Dr. Shane Perry will speak during the events. Additionally, the format will feature transformative sessions and practical workshops that will aid would-be business owners and help people live healthier lives.

For those passionate about film and entertainment this year, the MegaFest International Faith & Family Film Festival will feature first-rate screenings of Hollywood films, where the stars of those films will hold an insightful Q&A session. Since its inception, the MegaFest International Faith & Family Film Festival has attracted big names like actress Jennifer Hudson, comedian Tyler Perry, actor Blair Underwood and talk-show legend Oprah Winfrey over the years.

Jakes wrote in Healing the Wounds of the Past that we need to let go and move forward. Sometimes in life, you need to be reminded that you don’t have to live a mundane existence. “When you begin to realize that your past does not necessarily dictate the outcome of your future, then you can release the hurt. It is impossible to inhale new air until you exhale the old,” wrote Jakes, who held the first MegaFest in Atlanta in 2004. You can catch the positive, but to get started you need to let go of the past. Perhaps, MegaFest can be the catalyst for you to encounter independence from the past.

“We’ve got concerts that they can come out and enjoy; we’ve got empowerment sessions and they can strengthen themselves and their career, so it’s one-stop shopping,” Jakes explained to the Christian Post. “We’ve got something for all ages — teenagers, young adults. And particularly with so many single parents today, to have your values reinforced in your kids right before they take off to school, that’s a good thing.”

Experience is defined as the process of doing and seeing things and of having things happen to you. We are all searching to have an experience in our lives that will transform it. Most of the time we are just wishing things will change, but put little action behind it. MegaFest 2017 can be part one of the piece to your puzzle in Dallas, Texas on June 28th through July 1. There is a reason that people are attending every year. God has a purpose for each of us and He is equipping the body to advance the Kingdom. This could be your vehicle to get there.

If you are looking for a fun-filled family experience or you just need to be invigorated, add MegaFest to your calendar. Why? Because we all need dynamic experiences that will help carve out a new path towards hope. This newly discovered path may lead us to a new journey in Christ or invite us to recommit our lives to Him. We all want life-altering experiences for the better.

This could be your time to embrace an awe-inspiring experience. Grab a hold of this opportunity and gather with others to be encouraged. You may even discover your purpose. See you in Dallas, TX in June!
