|Bishop TD Jakes and Oprah Winfrey on a "Lifeclass" episode in April 2012|
Oprah Winfrey announced on Tuesday that she is joining Bishop T.D. Jakes of The Potter's House and other big-name Christian pastors for MegaFest 2013, the multi-day event that is scheduled to take place on Aug. 29 in Dallas.
"[Winfrey] will be joined by Bishop Jakes and together they will continue the important work of reaching out to the many fatherless sons and daughters who are struggling and in need of healing," a press release on Winfrey's website states.
"Earlier this season on Oprah's Lifeclass, Oprah and spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant started the in-depth conversation around fatherless sons and daddyless daughters, a crisis affecting nearly 21 million children in the United States today, that elicited a strong and passionate viewer response."
Some other notable leaders that will participate in MegaFest include World Changers International Church Pastor Creflo Dollar, as well as Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church.
