Early Life

Bakker attended North Central University where he met Tammy Faye. They fell in love. In 1961 they decided to get married and dropped out of college to concentrate on their role as evangelists.

Jim Bakker Career

The young couple started working for the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).  Jim Bakker hosted The 700 Club, which drew a large audience and quickly became the network’s flagship show. However, internal conflicts between the different interest groups led Bakker to decide to leave the network permanently.

Bakker and his wife started their show “PTL club”. This show quickly became a huge success and has received a great response from the public over the years. According to one estimate, dues for the program exceeded $1 million each week. Everything seemed to be going well for Bakker and Tammy, but a vicious cycle began when the church clerk accused Bakker of sexual misconduct.

Bakker was forced to resign, and subsequent investigations revealed that he had also embezzled ministry funds generously donated by his audience. The investigation showed that he spent $350,000 developing Heritage USA, even though he told viewers the money would be used for overseas assignments.

In addition, the IRS also found that he had taken $1.3 million of the department’s funds for his own benefit. The situation was made worse in terms of perception when a movie called “Fall from Grace” was released, providing a biography of Bakker’s dramatic rise and fall. After serving his prison term, Bakker was paroled with a $500,000 fine. After its release, he published a book called The Time Has Come: How to Prepare for the Epics to Come.

Personal Life

After Bakker got married, they had two children named Tammy Sue and Jamie Charles. However, after being together for several decades, they decided to separate and divorce, one of the main reasons for the failure of Bakker’s marriage being the serious accusations that he faced.

Bakker later married Lori Beth Graham, who was also active in her career as a television preacher. Together they have five adopted children.
