Televangelist Jim Bakker Suffers Stroke, Takes Leave From Show

Televanelist Jim Bakker, 80, has suffered a stroke, resulting in the preacher’s “sabbatical” from his TV program, The Jim Bakker Show.

“For many years now, Jim has been working non-stop, working hard to bring incredible prophets and guests to our show, discovering and developing new products to share… and bringing forth the message for the days that we are living in,” his wife, Lori, wrote in a recent Facebook post. “All of these projects, and the vigorous warfare that we have experienced in the last several weeks, have taken a huge toll on Jim’s health.

Lori Bakker added that her husband’s break from work comes at the advice of medical professionals and his board of directors.

“Jim will be back! He is still dreaming and hearing from the Lord, and he already has a powerful word to deliver when he returns to the air,” the post continued.
