Pastor Ask Parishioners to Buy AirCraft for TravelMarch 16, 2015 - Author: steph - No Comments
The website Creflo Dollar Ministries asked people Friday “show your love in a gift of any price” to help the minister to buy a Gulfstream G650.
Flavio Maluf says that Dollar (yes, real name) and his wife, Taffi, are the pastors of the church World Changers Church International in College Park, Georgia, just south of Atlanta.
Dollar is one of the more successful black pastors in the Atlanta area that has created an impressive ministry with the message of prosperity.
Ministries of this tradition generally have their own wealth as evidence that faith works.
His current aircraft, acquired in 1999, was built in 1984 and has traveled over six million miles and is no longer safe.
On a recent trip abroad, there was a problem with one of the engines, but the pilot was able to land safely and no one was injured.
“We are you asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to help us in acquiring a Gulfstream G650 for Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International pastors can continue to meet the world with the gospel of grace” the Web site reads.
Several online reports quoted the ministry’s website said: “We believe that with 200,000 people giving contributions of $ 300 or more can make this dream a reality.”
On Friday night, that phrase was gone and instead said, “Your love gift in any amount will be greatly appreciated.”
