spiritual covering

Bishop TD Jakes PHIPA

New Direction Church leadership believes in the accountability, integrity, and blessings associated with a spiritual covering. In accordance with the biblical practice that everyone follower of Christ needs to be a disciple of another man or woman of God, our Apostle has diligently sought to cover himself and New Direction Church. Apostle Jerrell T. Beard, Sr. has been accepted as a Spiritual Son of Bishop T D Jakes, Founder & Senior Pastor of The Potter's House in Dallas Texas. As a member of the Potter's House International Pastoral Alliance, our Apostle has immediate access to the spiritual and organizational guidance of Bishop T D Jakes and the entire PHIPA staff. He strongly participate in PHIPA training and development for integrity, sound doctrine and the spirit of excellence. 

PHIPA Purpose
The Potter’s House International Pastoral Alliance (PHIPA) is a multicultural fellowship of economically diverse Christian pastors who recognize the need for spiritual covering.
Our goal is to build covenant relationships that will establish sound spiritual leadership. Our aim is to become a birthing ground that cultivates potential and fulfills destiny.

PHIPA parents the anointed through God-centered direction, thereby strengthening pastors through impartation and “iron-sharpening-iron” dynamics. PHIPA promotes interdependency while encouraging the maintenance of distinct, independent identities. The forum provides networking and relationship-building opportunities with pastors of diverse backgrounds who have a wealth of experience. As in all things, the alliance is committed to conducting all forms of communication, above reproach, with the highest integrity toward another.
