Mega Church Reverend Creflo Dollar faces Backlash for 65 Million Dollar Private Jet donation campaign

Published

 on

DollarShoot-365This week, Reverend Creflo Dollar launched a $65 Million campaign to fund the purchase of a new private jet for his ministry. In the donation appeal video for “Project G650” which has now been deleted from his official website, it is explained that the reverend travels around the world to spread the gospel and his current private jet recently faced mechanical problems while on trips to Australia and the UK, therefore the plane is now out of service.

Supporters are encouraged to pledge $300 each to assist the pastor and his team to reach the $65 Million goal.

The website states:

‘Believe it or not, there are still millions of people on this planet who have never heard of Jesus Christ and know nothing of His greatness.’

‘Our hearts desire to see precious lives changed and snatched out of darkness and thrust into His marvelous light!

‘We need your help to continue reaching a lost and dying world for the Lord Jesus Christ, supporters of the ministry to sow a $300 seed into the airplane fund, billed Project G650.’

Screen CaptureSince the launch of the donation campaign, the press has picked up the story and the reverend his faced immense backlash on social media. It appears this criticism has made a dent with campaign materials being deleted. You can watch the video below and decide for yourself.

    Nice to know church 419 is not strictly Nigerian.

      I wonder why you need jets to spread the gospel. Lol. There are still so many remote villages and towns yet to receive the news. But no the pastor won’t go to such places. Young members of the church need to preach there.

      Where do you think the Nigerian ones learnt it from? Their American counterparts, of course.

      You are right on the money. Church 419 originally came to Nigeria from American southern televangelist church traditions…Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker, Ted Haggard, and the rest of them dancing, crying, swaggering, prophesing, miracle-making bunch of businessmen masquerading as men of God.

    pastors= robbers
    weapon of choice-bible
    target-ignorant people

    I hate it when pastor worshippers say, the private jets that their pastors have are being used to spread the gospel. BULLSH!T
    there’s no logical reason for a pastor to own a private jet.
    many pastors are thieves who love to live in luxury, especially that nigerian pastor who has 3 private jets.thief oshi

      Lmao. Scared to mention Oyedepo? Hahah.i am not scared of him and his armed robber trainees he calls pastors and ministers of God. I know too many people have been duped by Winner’s Chapel members and their leaders turn a blind eye and try to use intimidation tactics to muffle people from speaking the truth. When so called pastors and churches cannot even confront the truth when it is smack in their faces, then you know the church system is a total failure

    I really dont see anything wrong in this. Most churches raise funds for projects so why lash the man? He asked for funds to be raised and if you feel you can sow in the project then go ahead and sow. Why insult him and send curses? Even in RCCG Pastor Adeboye asked the congregation to please raise funds for the New Auditorium to be built……
    Churches raise funds and its not a new thing so i dont understand why people took it to an extreme. Even in my church here in Lagos Our pastor asked us to raise funds for the new church building and we all did. Now the church building is erect and we’re all glad we raised money to build it…………… Why the backlash ???????

      New auditorium, church bus is not equal to a private jet o.

    • simso

      March 14, 2015 at 10:06 am

      Pastors ask the congregation to raise funds for buildings all the time, that’s no problem. The church building is a necessity. The backlash is because people don’t feel that a private jet worth $65mill is a necessity

    • Marc Francis of Chelsea

      March 14, 2015 at 10:16 am

      There are much cheaper jets but of course this big-eyed pastor wants the one that even billionaires are in line for.

    • cliff Njiks

      March 14, 2015 at 2:19 pm

      I do! raising funds for a new and maybe a bigger church house for the congregation is very different from from raising funds to finance the aquisition of a private jet for the Pastors use! What does a pastor need a private Jet for? if not for his private use and prestige? you Nigerians are really a very gullible lot! its no wonder that Boko Haram is making you dance in circles for 6 years now!

    • slice

      March 14, 2015 at 3:59 pm

      i have to agree. the only problem i have may be the kind of jet as i do believe there are cheaper ones that run just as well. but i can see why one is necessary. ceos of big companies have private jets. many of these churches are bigger than some of those companies. I see no reason why their ceo can’t have one

    • Mama bomboy.

      March 15, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      Problem is, the ceos didn’t ask his staff or “congregation” to donate, they all use their money. How about Creflo using his income from books and honorarium to buy a jet he can afford. But no, he’ll rather ask the burden to be shifted to his sheep. Nonsense and ingredients!!

      The problem is his flock’s average yearly income is 30k and that’s being generous. This isn’t a Fund for an auditorium. This is to give a man of god who owns 2 Rolls Royce Bentley’s and several mansions a PRIVATE jet seating 25 people a 65 million dollar luxury plane to fly around. A new soup kitchen isn’t built, food supplies aren’t going to a poor country, a hospital isn’t being constructed. A G35 luxury plans ia being bought. That’s not a good look.

    I have been blessed by Creflo Dollar so I can donate, he preaches about Jesus and applying him to your everyday life. If you don’t know him, shut up,he is more sincere than most, if he was Nigerian,he would have 3 jets by now, he used a jet since 1999, if he were a Nigerian pastor his Jets would beat some airline companies and he would have even gone into the business.

    People should learn to mind their business, we need the seed of faith for God to move fast sometimes and this is one of those times.

    If you honour God because someone used his name, he will honour you and you wonder why the rich gets richer

    • Que

      March 14, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      Honey, you said we ‘shut up’ if we dont know him, and should mind our business…..guess what, I was doing just that till this appeal video popped up on my screen…. I have never gone looking for CDM, nope.!…they sent out this video knowing It would reach all sorts of people with varying opinions….. if they believed in this mission, why did they pull back after public backlash??…..I’m sure he’s been criticised before, especially in ministry building….did he reverse…no.. so why now,?

      I’ll help u….. cos this matter was not ordained anywhere to begin with! Were his daughters on that plane to go further the ministry? Or they are more special than other daughters of God? Please lets imbibe the culture of calling out shit for smelling foul! That is also a part of the christian calling. If God sees ahead of you that his intended mission on earth is in jeopardy because of the absence of a Jet, believe me, he will provide it in wait for diligent people who will obey his call….. whatever happened to ‘starting with what you have’, in faith that what you need will come along!

      I dont believe that reasonable human beings will go into a global frenzy over requests that are aimed at directly impacting and improving human lives anywhere on the planet, including salvation matters………if humans were that unreasonable all them Salvation army, red cross, unhcr, save the children, wwf, shelter, etc along with many religious organisations would have packed up long ago! I’ve sat in congragations in my church and elsewhere, where requests for necessary donations have been made both for needs within and beyond my geographical borders and it is never a problem, cos truth is there will always be people in need as long as we are here, and it is our duty to do what we can, whenever. No doubt that joining hands together, with God’s grace, humans can achieve the unimaginable….lets just keep the needs vs wants in view while we do that.

      More importantly accept that your mission will never be everybody’s cup of tea before you go telling people to shut up…#talkaboutmindingbusiness!

    Funny how the tech Guy said: we were in Hawaii when the problem started. Then he switches to Australia. Then his wife and 3 daughters were in London, last time the plane had a problem without him. I am sure the wife and daughter were on holiday shopping trip and not preaching, abusing the church plane for their enjoyment. So no thank u, u will not get any money from me. Funny how people can’t read between the line, when it is right in front of u.

    Creflo Dollar, living up to the name, aren’t we?
    If I had $300, I would sooner give it to ISIS & Boko Haram victims. Or the woman who cannot afford to feed her child again today. Or the child walking around with a tray of groundnuts on her head, hustling like an adult at the age of 6.
    Mr Dollar, maybe you should encourage your congregation $300 to people who are in dire need of it, like that man working 3 jobs to care for his family. Or that person who cannot afford hospital bills.
    See how they even made the video sef, as if it’s a tragedy. Keep playing on the emotions of the lost and ignorant. Remember, God cannot be mocked.

    There are so many things wrong with this donation campaign!

    1st off. I will not trust a pastor whose last name is “dollar!” He’s already questionable! Pastor Dollar asking for $65 million dollars! Absolutely not!

    2nd off. It’s obvious this private jet is used for personal use not for the ministry. In that video, it says the old plane experienced mechanical problems when his 3 daughters were returning from Europe! No where did he say those girls were in Europe on a missionary trip. Nope, his daughters probably flew daddy’s private jet and went on vacation.

    Lastly, everything is wrong with this campaign!! $65 million dollar private jet is a luxury!! $65 million can be used to further other missionary goals like building schools, scholarships, helping members of the congregation going through financial struggles, hospital bills, etc!! How many people can even afford to donate $300!

    My prayer od that God continues to expose these fraudulent pastors!!! Amen!

    #copied and pasted

    ‪#‎MayIHaveYourAttentionPlease‬ – I am totally disgusted by the response of ministers & church leaders to Pastor Creflo Dollars recent pursuit of new aircraft. I have several reasons for feeling this way, allow me to share a few of them.

    1. He wasn’t talking to you. I’ve seen several posts from ignorant people outraged that “creflo expects me to buy his jet?!” No precious heart. “Creflo” didn’t ask you to do anything. This outrage stems from a letter his ministry shared with his PARTNERS. Partners that he’s connected with over the 20+ years he’s been on international television. Partners who have decided that something he has shared has helped them enough to cause them to decide to support him. Partners that have supported his ministries initiatives in the past. He sent THEM a letter explaining that the 30 year old aircraft the ministry has owned for years now was recently damaged in a crash as a result of engine failure & they wanted to get a new one. He went on the ask for 200,000 people (out of the millions of people in his database) to donate $300 so that they can purchase a plane that will allow them to fly internationally without having to refuel. Mind you, he didn’t sell a prophecy in the letter, he didn’t promise a 300 day season of favor as a result of the seed, and he didn’t hide behind “The Lord laid you on my heart”. He essentially said “our last plane broke, we want a better one so we can do what we do and we hope those of you who’ve been blessed by us will help us.” He wasn’t talking to you, he was talking to grown ups who’ve opted to help him.

    2. Your church does the same thing. The reality is, many people who have an attitude about this are simply intimidated by the numbers. The PRINCIPLE of the letter is the same we see in our churches every Sunday, it’s just on a different level. I’ll explain. What’s the difference between Pastor Dollar being upfront with his supporters and sharing that they want to get a better plane to do INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY and your church doing a gofundme or a letter requesting help for new pews, choir robes, a building fund, church renovations, etc?! You might say that those things help you do ministry at a certain level…but what you fail to realize is that aircraft helps HIM do ministry at a certain level. I’ve seen Pastor’s who lead churches that pay their housing allowance, car notes, insurance etc. as the full time pastor/head of the corporation (as it should) dog him for expecting his supporters to purchase the plane…but what’s the difference? Your supporters buy YOUR vehicles. You say he doesn’t need a plane THAT nice to do the job? Well let me ask you this in return. What do you say to the ignorant member in your church after The Lord has greatly blessed your ministry who says you don’t need a car “that nice” to get around town? Do you point out that they have no idea how hard you’ve worked, prayed, sacrificed to get where you are? Do you remind them that nice is a relative term? After all, you CAN get around in a Honda just as well as a Mercedes. Double standard. It’s levels to this.

    3. Many of those in opposition to this have a Judas complex. Remember who got an attitude when the women broke the alabaster box and poured her oil on Jesus? Judas. You remember why? Because he said that the money should have been used for the poor…and he was a thief. I’m so tired of seeing people who won’t give a dollar to their LOCAL church or friendly neighborhood homeless man but want to count how many wells Pastor Dollar has built in Africa. When did YOU become so concerned with the poor? You won’t help them with YOUR money but want to dictate how somebody else helps them with theirs?? Never mind the fact that his church and ministry do countless things for the global community, the plane is not a toy, its a tool to help him do the work that God has allowed him to do.

    I need to write a full blog on this because I know this has been lengthy and I have a LOT more to say (I’m sure some of it will come out in the comments) but I’ll close by saying that it’s disheartening to see some of the same people who wept over the TRAGIC loss of Dr. Myles Munroe and members of his team as a result of their old aircraft not being able to handle the storm berate Pastor Dollar for being upfront and embracing “you have not because you ask not” (which is in the bible). It’s disheartening to see people clamor over Beyoncé & Jay Z who have a much more expensive plane that they use to travel the world talking about Monica Lewinsky-ing & Tom Ford yet show outrage that this man wants a plane to travel the world and preach. Guess what. Jay Z and Beyoncé bought their plane (wait for it) with money from their supporters. It’s EXTREMELY disheartening to see ignorant people who have a piece of success in one particular field which they constantly brag about become overnight ministry experts with no ministry experience or even credible references and spout off about what’s wrong with a man who’s on a level they’ll never see. Im certainly not upset with anyone, I just can’t stomach stupid.

      March 16, 2015 at 3:42 am

      Charlatan, thats what my friend Lare would have tagged you and that Pastor as. I am disappointed in Nigerians and our overwhelming stupidity with regards to understanding the bible. Jesus didn’t ask the woman to buy the alabaster box, and He was using it to pass a message. There are a lot of mission schools in the States, and yes, quite a lot of verifiable ones too in Naija such as Capro ministries and co, where if the pastor was genuinely interested in mission work, they could support these mission schools.
      The truth is that most of these pastors have missed the way and gotten lost in the trappings of wealth. Imagine a pastor having 3 jets. Ok, do you know how much they’ll have to pay for maintenance, hangar/parking fees, pilot salaries and such? i’M SURE THE BILL can feed a lot of families in the congregation of these so called “men of God”, and that’s why I honestly find it difficult to give in a lot of big churches.
      Name one church in Naija with fiscal responsibility in Nigeria, (I can sha, there’s this CHurch of ascension or something in Uni Ibadan, they publish a weekly take on offerings and stuff, but I digress.)
      Pastors need to renew their minds and stop making the work of God look like a search for luxury.

    Oyibo man will,build charities, soup shelters, organise concerts, etc for poor black people, but Blackman will rather exploit the vulnerable members of his community. Why?

    As for Creflo Dollars, no words…I’m happy people raised a storm on social media and shame don catch am. Indeed judgement will start from the Church, and all those who have made it a source of greed will pay big time.

    Anybody that would donate so a pastor can buy a $65 million dollar private jet deserves to have their money stolen.

    He can spread the word on a regular commercial flight. This man is the epitome of what is wrong with the church and why so many people have turned their backs on it.

    When God comes for his world, all of the people that used his name to lie, steal, and deceive others are going to be the ones who answer to him first. This man is nothing more than a crook. His last name says it all; he is all about the “Dollar”

  20. laura

    March 14, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    Here’s a solution: Pick a team of Pastors, pray together, pay for a commercial flight. You will still get the word of God across…..and even by not focusing on the private jet, you much actually get it if someone is touched by the Lord, Don’t make it a project for God sake, this isn’t a church binding or school….

    Yes, CEOs of big companies have jets, except that they purchase the jet out of their remuneration; not by asking employees to donate, from their meager salary, so they can acquire a jet for their personal use. Who cares if he flies around in his own Dessault Falcon 900, so long as he purchased it with his own earned money.

    March 14, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Pastor pls stop using that beat up old plane o, your life is very precious.
    As you are waiting for your new plane, why don’t you focus more on tele and internet evangelism? I have a gut feeling that will get the job done even bigger and faster.
    If you are worried about preaching to people in poverty stricken region’s [where the average person may not have a computer, phone or internet access] why not consider donating a computer lab [I didn’t say donate a whole school o] to help them watch your preaching’s and also learn to use the computer? You could also consider expanding your benevolence by building classroom’s with computerized remote access to volunteer teacher’s.
    Free education has become near extinct and I got excellent education from cheap as chip’s catholic school’s [despite not being a member of the church], this education is all I have ever needed apart from God’s grace.
    Please don’t be offended if you are already doing this, God bless you as you do more.

    My only question is why the ask is not for resources to take the word to all parts of the earth? You see with an ask for resources, he leaves open room to say we will use whatever means are most judicious and reasonable to reach brethren all over the world. Most will accept that. You can still ask for $300 but then it is not for a sophisticated plane. The repulsion here is due to the specific ask for a $65 million dollar plane when he could have flown economy class. Will his gospel diminish after flying economy? No. That is what I think gives an offensive tone to this ask.

    there is nothing wrong with raising funds to reach out to the unchurched, if he needs to go to remote villages outside America, wont he still fly. people who are against the fund raising never grow that is the truth, even in the bible when paul went about preaching the people he previously preached to sent him money and clothes to be able to take care of himself and reach out to others because they saw what it benefited them to hear the gosel. onces more the gospel of Christ of GRACE, meaning Gods riches at Christ expense ,so if you don’t want to support the gospel, you can remain where you are. as a wise one the way to more forward is to give to the gospel of Christ, Jesus gave his life for you, isn’t that much money than money?

    Mother Theresa lived a life of poverty in India. Her selflessness touched millions. You all know her by name. She didn’t have a private jet. I truly believe the bible when it says by their fruit you shall know them. That is all.

    we know in part……….. we don’t know many things, we judge things as they seem to us but only God knows the whole truth. please stop calling names or judging. honestly no one should force anyone to give, we should all be led by the spirit, if u are not convinced about giving, then don’t, it doesn’t mean u’ll go to hell fire. it’s better not to give than to give grudgingly. let’s sha not offend God by calling names and calling pastors thieves. there are wolves in sheep clothing out there yes, but can we throw away the baby with the bath water???
    bottom line: just be led by the spirit in your giving. stop fighting God’s fight for Him, concentrate on what’s impotant.

    How can he say he knows me when he doesn’t know the law? He’s an imposter, just like the rest of them. They preach for money so they can have the life they want.

    @ e-fy…. you say he wasnt talking to us, but to his partners. im pretty sure he could have found a way to connect and contact them if he as just talking to them, no need for a video asking for funds.

    @ shannie. i completely agree with you. he can as well preach to people on commercial fights to wherever he is going to.. even the bible says he who wins a soul is wise. he can sit next to someone on a commercial flight that might just need saving.

    Pastoring has become a way to make money, get fat and live in luxury.

    Jesus picked the twelve disciples and commissioned them to go and tell the greatest story ever told, how Jesus Christ died a cruel death on Calvary for the sins of the world. What might appear remarkable to some is that there was no ‘big budget’ plan, no private jets, no T.V. stations to promote the events, no traditional or digital media, no T.V. Specials. In the natural world we would say about all of this, that it’s a recipe for disaster. It couldn’t possibly work.

    But these men, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, wrote the four gospels. John wrote Revelation and Paul wrote two thirds of the New Testament. All of this is still being read today by Christians in the Christian church worldwide. So what do these men have that we don’t have in the Christian world now? The answer is quite simply…. the anointing and dedication to the Love of Jesus Christ ….. and it works, obviously.

    The problem in the church today is that the belief is that they must have large auditoriums, packed to bursting, with attendees praying for revival for the world. The point that is clearly being missed at these convivial gatherings of church Pastors, Assistant Pastors and Christian leaders is… God Has already sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on Calvary…. and He’s NOT going to do anything else.

    It has not yet dawned on the church that they need first a revival of the heart and not of the head for His harvest to be brought in. We pray about the harvest. We talk about the harvest. We sing and dance about the harvest… but though the fields are ripe there is still no harvest.

    So what do we do? Certainly, we do not need bigger and bigger supersonic jets. We don’t need big budget plans. We just need the anointing of God and the dedication that these disciples manifested because they DID bring in the harvest – with nothing.

    It is time to stop singing and go out and preach the true Gospel and that is Christ and Him Crucified, in your own church and your own town. Bring to your church, for a change, the people who do NOT know Jesus and this could include your brothers and sisters in your own home.
    Stop getting fat on Pastor’s teachings which in many cases are not based on the Word of God but on the precepts of mens teachings about the acquisition of material gain.

    We must stop talking endlessly about these prosperity gospels. We are not against them but they are saturating the airwaves, on radio, T.V., the Internet, all media – continuously begging for donations – apparently for revival. How come the disciples never had any personal wealth? They brought in one of the greatest harvests ever and one that still reverberates ‘till this very day.

      WELL SAID SIR. really, there’s so much more to be done in the world but little time. the sooner we begin to do the important things, the better for us. we’ve put too much importance on money—way too much, it’s great and important, even the bible says it but nowadays ehn…
      anyway, let’s just seek the kingdom of God first and every other thing will follow, money sef will chase you. it’s a principle I’ve tried and it works for me, it still works.

    i just googled the most expensive planes in the world and a Gulfstream IV is $38 million, the BD-700 Global Express is $47.7 million, so why $65 million?, if you can’t use business class on other airline at least look for a cheaper plane

    I have read many articles and blogs regarding Pastor Creflo Dollar asking his congregation and supporters for gift offering of $300 (that are tax deductible). At one time I did not know anything about Pastor Dollar and heard horrible things about him (that I believed). I was talked into going to his church one Sunday and realized that Pastor Dollar teaches the Word of God straight from of the Bible. He taught a little and then asked his congregation to turn to the Bible verse to confirm what he had just taught. After attending a couple more Sundays I was a believer. Pastor Dollar has spent over 30 years of his life traveling through the United States and other countries to teach the Word of God and show people how they can achieve salvation. Questions: Should Pastor Dollar spend time going to commercial airports where he and his staff must wait in security lines in order to board a plan that might be delayed? Should Pastor Dollar buy a crop duster air plane and attempt to write sermons on the way to wherever he is going to save souls? Should Pastor Dollar carry thousands of pounds of food to the needy on a commercial plane? Or, should Pastor Dollar ASK his congregation for a gift offering so that he and his staff can travel comfortably to places where he is going to save souls? As a child of God I believe I deserve the best of everything that this life has to offer. Is that wrong?
    Many mega-pastors have mansions, jets, luxury vehicles and nobody says anything. Pastor Dollar as for $300 per member of his church and he gets accused of being a crook. I feel this is more evidence that he is a man of God and this is an attack from the devil on his character.
    You may not believe that Pastor Dollar is a Prophet or a man of God. However, be very careful what you say about Pastor Dollar in case he is. The Bible reads in 1 Chronicles 16:22: “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm”. If by some small chance that the money is not going to be used the way that he has stated, God will judge him for that.
    Although I have never personally met Pastor Dollar, I believe that God speaks through him. After listening to the Word of God taught by Pastor Dollar, I am more successful, my relationships with family and friends are better, I happy do whatever I can to be a blessing to others and I am going to leave this world and go to Heaven one day.

    Creflo is a great preacher and we can’t judge other people, for in the same way we judge God will judge us.

    He dosent need a 65 million dollar jet to
    Spread the Gospel. If God wanted him to have it, he would have it to accomplish that part of his calling.

    It’s more of a convenience and luxury tool to get the job done more effienctly, and comfortably. But he could just fly commercially, even though it’s not on his exact schedule.

    Prominent Pastors like Creflo particularly need to be more careful about what message their sending out to the World about things like money, so you don’t get it twisted; and they I believe could definetly utilize a less expensive private jet safely for the same exact purpose while utilizing money more effienctly and less selfishly.

    No one but God & Jesus are perfect and we all struggle with issues no matter how successful we are or unsuccessful. Quit throwing stones and pray.

    God Bless,
    Jon
