Atlanta’s Dr. Creflo Dollar will get his $65 million jet

When Dr. Creflo Dollar first broached the topic of having his followers pay for a new $65 million luxury jet, he was subjected to unwanted scrutiny and mockery and quickly removed a GoFundMe account and any inference of it online.

Most people believed the subject was closed. But Dollar’s World Changers Church in College Park, Ga. released a statement saying the church plans to buy the jet. The board says its G650 appeal published on the creflodollarministries.org website will not seek donations from the public.

The fundraising campaign was, the board says, directed to a specific community “of like-minded people who love and support the ministry and its global missions work.”

We wholeheartedly reject the notion that the ministry’s airplane project is an imposition on our community or that it somehow takes advantage of our people. Quite to the contrary, this request is seen by our community as standard operating procedure for people of faith. We believe that if our efforts are focused on building the Kingdom of God around the world, then it is His desire for us to see the desires of our hearts. We have funded numerous multi-million dollar projects this exact same way, including parking facilities, various church buildings, previous airplanes, our teen ministry headquarters and even our sanctuary, the World Dome. We seek out what we believe to be the will of God, we allow ourselves to dream BIG, we present our ‘family’ with an opportunity to ‘invest,’ and we all come together to turn those dreams into reality. We plan to acquire a Gulfstream G650 because it is the best, and it is a reflection of the level of excellence at which this organization chooses to operate. We, the World Changers family, so value the lives, the safety and the well-being of our pastors and leaders that we wish to provide to them the best air travel experience possible.
