Women Thou Art Loosed Virtual Experience

As always Bishop T.D. Jakes has done it again. The Woman Thou Art Loosed Virtual Experience was amazing.

Since 1996, Woman Thou Art Loosed has been at the epicenter of women’s empowerment. We’ve had the honor of welcoming legends to grace our platform and inculcate our perspectives with invaluable insights culled from history’s classroom.

This event was created to speak to every woman in the room, to elevate your influence in spheres that were once seemingly unattainable. You’ve partaken in conversations powerful enough to shift a society, and you’ve created a sisterly bond strong enough to withstand the limitations of time and distance. From one generation to another, your mantle of excellence is a reflection of God’s promises.

Bishop T.D. Jakes, the chief architect behind it all, has witnessed the indelible impact that Woman Thou Art Loosed has afforded women the world over. Your faith, your accomplishments, your character, and your aspirations continue to make him proud.

Before we say our farewells to Woman Thou Art Loosed, let’s celebrate our journey across more than two decades of terrain at homecoming! Meet us from August 5-7, 2021, at the Georgia World Congress Center for our final conference in Atlanta, Georgia!

Will you join us for this triumphant last gathering
