About Jim Bakker
James Orsen Bakker first rose to prominence in the mid-1970s as the co-host of the Christian television show, “The PTL Club” alongside his ex-wife, Tammy Faye. With time, the couple gained fame and acquired wealth not just through their televangelism ministry but their Christian-themed amusement park called Heritage USA as well.
Following a rape allegation scandal by his then-church secretary, Jessica Hahn in 1987, he resigned from his ministry.
Furnia Lynette Irwin and Raleigh Bakker were his parents. Tammy Faye was the mother of his two biological children. He also adopted five children with Lori Beth Graham, whom he married in 1998.
Almost a decade after his 1994 release from prison for misusing church funds, he returned to televangelism in 2003. His ministry has since become known as Morningside Church.
