Unfortunately, T.D. Jakes Ministries is no longer providing invitation letters. We appreciate your desire to attend an International Conference hosted in the United States of America by the ministries of Bishop T. D. Jakes. Bishop Jakes is seen worldwide with advertisement promoting the International events his ministries are hosting. He often will state that you are invited to attend his conferences. This statement is not meant to imply that he or his ministry will favorably issue requests received from non-United States citizens for “invitation letters.” The very nature of an invitation letter implies that there is a relationship between the issuer and the recipient of the letter and that the issuer is able to vouch for the traveler in question. When Bishop Jakes makes an appeal to those that listen to his programming and visit his websites to come to the United States of America to his conferences, he does this with the thought that you can meet the requirements of our State Department to enter the USA.
As good stewards of the Gospel and citizens of the United States of America, we cannot assume that everyone that requests an invitation letter from us is a person that we can invite to the country without any personal knowledge of the person making the request. When the ministry issues an invitation letter to attend conferences, it will be to support B2 types of Visas for tourism purposes. We do understand that the Consular Official may ask for additional documentation outside of the required documentation the State Department requires and that an invitation letter can be information used as evidence which shows the purpose of the trip, and arrangements made to cover the costs of the trip may be provided. However, proof that you have registered for the conference can also provide that proof.
