    Creflo Dollar is still talking about his dream of owning a $65 million Gulfstream G650 private jet. For those who missed it, the Atlanta megachurch pastor previously made headlines after he started an online campaign asking his congregation and followers to donate for the purchase of the extravagant aircraft. As previously reported on the Inquisitr, the initial campaign, known as “Project G650,” asked for 200,000 people to donate $300. “We are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650. The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream...

    After a bruising weekend handling ferocious backlash over his campaign to acquire a $65 million Gulfstream G650 airplane with planned donations of $300 or more from 200,000 people, controversial televangelist and founder of World Changers Church International, Creflo Dollar has completely abandoned the idea and will only consider acquiring one in the future if it's "properly priced." "There is no campaign right now," said Juda Engelmayer of 5W Public Relations, who represents Creflo Dollar Ministries, in an interview with The Christian Post on Monday. The website hosting the campaign page was deactivated last week and an option to donate to...
  • Why Creflo Won't Be Getting My Dollars [Why does he need a $65 Million Jet for Ministry?]

    I’m all for generous giving, and I’m all for taking care of ministers of the gospel, but I will not be sending Creflo Dollar $300 to help him buy a $65 million jet for his ministry. The very thought of it is obscene. On a manipulative video now removed from his website, the narrator explains how Pastor Dollar’s ministry is touching people worldwide and how the old private jet they’ve been using for years has become unusable, also explaining how it is actually dangerous to fly. Now, we are told, in order to travel around the world, he needs a...

    The executive director of GeorgiaCarry.org, a state gun rights group, took to the airwaves yesterday on Atlanta’s NBC 11 Alive to weigh in on Wednesday’s shooting at Pastor Creflo Dollar's World Changers Church International, a College Park megachurch. Jerry Henry faced questions from news anchor Ted Hall and assertions by disarmament advocate State Senator Donzella James to explain why his group believes the choice should be left to the churches. Henry’s group is leading a fight to overturn a state law dictating disarmament, and has submitted a petition to the United States Supreme Court, presenting a single question: "Does a...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar was arrested early Friday after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.

    "For about a month now, I hear this every day, several times a day, 'It's coming. It's coming. It's coming. It's coming.' It got so strong yesterday, and the day before, that I just started walking through the house pleading the blood of Jesus. 'It's coming. It's coming. It's coming. It's coming.'" What's coming? Creflo then begins talking about the rapture. He mentions six raptures in the Bible. Three have already happened: Enoch, Elijah, and Jesus. He said in those first three cases, people knew in advance. He reminded us that the Bible says that God will not do anything...

    A California businessman sued the Rev. Creflo Dollar, his son Jeremy Dollar and his businesses Wednesday, saying the high-profile preacher misappropriated a business idea they developed together to text devotional messages to followers for $4.99 a month.

They are making $50 million a year through subscriptions, Lawson claims. James Evangelista, Lawson’s Atlanta attorney from the Page Perry law firm, said Dollar also bumped up the price...

    One of six Christian ministries under investigation by a Senate committee is rebuffing inquiries into its spending, challenging the panel's watchdog role over religious groups, The Associated Press has learned. A lawyer for preacher Creflo Dollar of World Changers Church International in suburban Atlanta has asked Sen. Charles Grassley to either refer the matter to the IRS or get a subpoena, according to a letter from Dollar's attorney obtained Wednesday by the AP. Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, sent pointed questionnaires in early November to a half-dozen ministries, asking about salaries, perks, travel and oversight. The...

    An Atlanta megachurch took in $69 million in 2006, according to a financial statement the church's minister released in response to a Senate investigation into him and five other well-known televangelists. The Rev. Creflo Dollar disclosed the World Changers Church International's financial information to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but said the money he spends is his own. Dollar said his income comes from personal investments, including businesses and real estate ventures. But the church gave him a Rolls Royce, which he mainly uses for special occasions, he said. "Without a doubt, my life is not average," he said. "But I'd like...

    Creflo Dollar and the Almighty Buck It is time to pass the offering buckets at World Changers Church New York, and Troy and Cheryal Anderson are eager to give the Lord his due. They wave their blue offering envelope overhead, as all around them worshippers whoop and holler their praises to God. Inside the envelope is 10 per cent of the weekly pay Troy Anderson takes home as an electrician's apprentice -- he earns about $30,000 US a year -- and a little more for the church's building fund. The Andersons, who live in the Bronx, are struggling financially. A...
