Evangelist Creflo Dollar seeks funding to purchase $65 million Gulfstream plane

American televangelist and leader of World Changers Church International Creflo Dollar is back in the headlines, this time for a funding campaign aimed at raising $65 million for a Gulfstream G650 plane for his world travel.

Dollar’s ministry has launched an appeal called Project G650, the name linked to this specific plane he is hoping to buy. The appeal website suggests that 200,000 people could commit to giving $300 or more to fund the project.

Creflo Dollar ministries photoChristian Today notes that the pastor’s current plane, which was acquired in 1999, was built in 1984 and was in service for 31 years. After a number of concerning mechanical failures during flights, the ministry has had to take it out of service.

From the “appeal”:

“We believe it is time to replace this aircraft so that our Pastors and staff can continue to safely and swiftly share the Good News of the Gospel worldwide. 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.”

The Gulfstream G650 is used by the world’s billionaires, possibly because it’s the fastest plane ever built in civilian aviation. Demand is so high that there’s a three-year waiting list, Bloomberg reports.

A ton of critics have gone public to attack Dollar, claiming that the plane is just too extravagant for a pastor or a ministry.
