T.B Joshua Reportedly Purchases $60 Million Private Jet

According to Sahara Reporters, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) pastor, T.B. Joshua, reportedly purchased a ‘nearly brand-new’ Gulfstream G550 aircraft in April 2015, a few months after the church’s building collapse that killed over 100 people.

The report further states:

Registered as “Synagogue Of Nations,” the jet was purchased using the Bank Of Utah trustee as the front for purchasing the jet.

Pastor TB Joshua’s jet has already started making the rounds. In June, it left the Murtala Muhammad International Airport in Lagos on a whirlwind of South America, departing north from there to Kentucky in the United States.

The jet, which has US registration number N131LK, was built in 2010.  It was delivered to its first user in 2013 before making it to TB Joshua early this year.  SaharaReporters learned that the jet made a voyage to Nigeria in December 2013, as the Bank of Utah was apparently pitching it to Pastor TB Joshua.  The man of God reportedly asked to see it and bless it before finally taking delivery.

It could cost up to $3 million to maintain the jet annually, depending on how heavily it is used.

    I sincerely hope this is not true. Your followers perish and now you own a jet. Na wa o! I no fit shout!

      He won’t be the first now. Abi it is ok for some and not for some. Any pastor that has a private jet but has someone in his congregation that cannot afford 3 square meal,a roof on top of his head head and cloths on their back is not christ like.

    I no longer even bother with religion in Nigeria and the whole of Africa (I understand other regions have their own issues but I want to discuss my Africa. Imagine some people are already saying “Glory be to God” I honestly give up. If we can’t as a nation not understand why Pators are able to afford private jets. mansions, cars e.t.c. from church members that are living in poverty, we honestly deserve for our country to continue the same way.

      You have not even stated the fact that the vast majority of the contributors (church members) of the money used for the purchase obtained it by wrongful means……..but they don’t care as long as they pay tithes and make big donation where they spend eternity does not really matter. The business of Religion is booming in Nigeria.

    Some deluded followers will come here and defend this nonsense. Starving sheep, overfed Shepherds. Nigerian pastors are the richest pentecostal “Men of God” in the entire world. This is a fact. Creflo Dollar is there begging his congregation for Gulfstream money, Nigerian pastors are in Nigeria buying Gulfstreams in two’s.

    First! true or not, him buying a private jet is no one’s business, besides he does crusades in different countries around the world so… and members of his church don’t suffer, old and young. A man who gives money and bags of rice to the elderly!! c’mon ! He doesn’t ask you to pay any offering if you dont want to, do it on your own terms. I don’t understand Nigerians, ah! Another pastor has so many private jets to start an airline with and you guys are complaining that a pastor has gotten one( may or not even be true, cause they said he got one sometime ago and it wasn’t true) anyways, leave him alone! Did he come to your house and push you to join his church? No so pls stop judging from stories you heard from some shitty nigerian newspaper or gist you heard from a naive nigerian who read the shitty newspaper. Again, I’m so hurt for this man! what is y’alls problem? your pastor in church is telling you to pray against this man, does that even make sense?? pls try and get your facts entirely right before jumping to conclusions. And about his building crashing,, story for another day.. but would anyone in their right mind decide to destroy their venture with their own hands? pls think abeg before coming here to judge.

    It is not in Nigeria only that Pastors live a lavish lifestyle. All over the world, most people who lived the life of crime growing up, go to jail for long periods and come out, start their own congregations. Mysteriously they have a lot of followers, I think people who believe if these ex convicts can change, so can the whole world, and that is where the mischief and greed starts. I don’t know what is it that happens in jail, but most of the ex convicts have VERY BIG congregations with people who are willing to leave the churches they grew up in and also willing pay for the upkeep of another family. Thinking out loud, at the end of it all, Heaven will be so empty when Jesus comes back to collect his people.

    i read and reread and read again but did not find source of the funds used. are we sure its missused church funds? are we not blaspheming? evry word or act that a man utters or does, shall account for it on the judgement day. run your own race and never while running, watch how fast or slow others run lest you remain at their back.

      If he used the financial support that I sent, I would be blessed. Funds are not “misused” when souls are being saved…

    Am not surprise, by what people say about men of God or Pastors, why do they expect the pastors or the believers to always be broke or poor, is it so they can OPEN their big mouth to speak none sense against the people of God. i personally thank GOD for his blessings in the life of His children. let those who hate the prosperity of Gods children, or that of the pastors go and jump into the sea. T B JOSHUA HAD HELP so many in Nigeria and around the world, this wicked and blinded ungrateful humans never see that, is only the jet has become their problem. PROPHET. T.B. JOSHUA. i thank God the almighty for the kind heart He hath given u. may GOD CONTINUE TO BLESSED U EVEN MORE AND MORE.

    Prophet tb joshua is not the only one,neither is he the first man of God to purchase a plane. Myles M had one. In fact this makes it easier for him to reach out on his flock. We praise the Lord for according our shepherd such a precious gift. Praise be to God.

    This is the perfect example of what the Bible calls Faith in action. The word of God said the true believer will always be the head not the tail. So the man of God, the prophet TB Joshua, has once again shown what God can do for his children. It was very hard for him to travel all over with his numerous staff members and studio apparels/ technicians etc every other week by commercial planes. So God has blessed him with a private jet. But I personally believe he deserves a more luxurious jet than that: HE IS SETTING PEOPLE FREE FROM BONDAGE, AFFLICTION AND STRANGE DISEASES THAT MODERN MEDICINE CAN HEAL. The Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner is one of the richest man in the world with a net worth of over $100,000,000 plus luxurious private jets and yacht and the Playboy mansion accumulated through corrupting people’s minds with his filth magazines and thereby opening gates for demons to invade our world has never been criticized for owning private jets and yachts. God made King Salomon the richest man of his time. Why wouldn’t He do the same for Prophet TB Joshua or anyone else for that matter? Don’t wait to be stricken with an incurable disease to visit the SCOAN and see for yourself whether or not the presence of God is there. Go spend a week or two there to inquire of the validity of those miracles before you criticize the man of God. You’l be amazed of what God is doing through that ministry. May God bless you!

      I agree with everything you say. Time is very short before Jesus’ comes. The Harvest of Souls is costing millions; and I, for one am very very glad to support these ministries who work tirelessly on behalf of God’s directions. We, as individuals can’t travel to different countries to bring the Word, so I and millions of other Believers am happy to support those who do.
      As partners in these various ministries, when a soul gets saved we also get the blessing. How great is that?! What these naysayers don’t know because they’re on the outside(their choice) looking in, is that the partners/givers approve of these purchases. If you’re not giving these ministries financial support, then keep to yourself. You should be thinking of how you’re going to survive these perilous times.
      Kudos to you Jean Charles!

    I wonder why people are confuse and furious when men of God acquires properties in Africa, does it mean that God cannot do it? ordinary musicians, politicians are flying Private Jets and it’s not a news but when its men of God it becomes a head line news please it is the time we embrace the reality of Christianity even in this last days, God has vowed to make his kingdom an envy to the world the earlier you realize this the better for you, let it be known to all men that what God has set to do in the mist of his people eyes has not seen ears has not heard neither has it enter into the heart of men, for those of you who does not understand, more is yet to come It is an Era of (Heaven on Earth) experience (WONDERS WITHOUT END) JESUS IS LORD

    If it is true What’s wrong in him buying a private jet, besides he does crusades in different countries
    around the world. so… with that plane he couldd reachout to his flocks all over d world.. and members of his church don’t
    suffer, old and young. A man who gives money and bags of
    rice to the elderly!! c’mon ! He doesn’t ask you to pay any
    offering if you dont want to, do it on your own terms.he gives willingly from his heart. I
    don’t understand Nigerians,av u seen any pastor that has not less 500 workers yet pay them attractive salaries,house them ,feed them.also av students under his scholarship In different part of the world he helps d poor no. responsible member of his church that is homeless so what’s wrong in him buying private jet..hmmm if it’s true that he really bought a jet.he just bought 1 and u r ranting nonsense .when he buys 5 or 10 u just go and hug transformer…..word of advice 4 u don’t curse or mock any servant of god .cos u aren’t d 1 that anointed him. if u do mock or curse him u r mocking the GOD that called him to ministry [the holy spirit in him] u will incur a wrath that might last for d rest of ur generation…d bible says and I quote. Every Man Shaall Be Judged According To His Works…so always. Appreciate what GOD is doing through them and u will receive greater blessingss from GOD. EMMANUEL. GOD IS WITH US…
