When last we heard from Creflo Dollar, he was saying that despite a backlash from those who thought his demands for a fourth plane were excessive, if God wanted him to get his $65 million private jet, then God would make a way. Well, it appears that the Almighty has spoken and Creflo and his World Changers Church International will get a new plane.

Dollar insists that he needs the plane to continue his good works. At first, Dollar attempted to crowdfund the jet’s purchase, but that effort was ended prematurely after the church’s need for the plane was questioned. But in a statement issued this week, World Changers Church’s board said that they have agreed to purchase the plane, that they did so as a united group and it was not just Dollar’s decision, and that furthermore, nobody has the right to question their decisions as they are led by the Lord.

The Christian Post reports:

“It is our belief that this ministry is called to serve people globally — to literally change the world according to the Great Commission — and our infrastructure and operational plan reflect the worldwide nature of that assignment. Our pastors share the gospel of Jesus more than 300 times per year — in churches, arenas, venues, convention centers, stadiums and other facilities across the entire planet — and are committed to aggressive travel schedules that cannot be fulfilled via any means other than private aircraft,” said the WCCI board in a statement posted on the website of Creflo Dollar Ministries.

“A long-range, high-speed, intercontinental jet aircraft is a tool that is necessary in order to fulfill the mission of the ministry. In light of an unfortunate accident that recently resulted in the ministry’s aircraft being declared a total loss, it is our intention to purchase another airplane at a time, place and price of our choosing,” the statement continued.

It was then confirmed later in the statement that the next plane the ministry intends to acquire is the controversial Gulfstream G650.

“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,” said the statement from the WCCI board.

Despite the statement from WCCI, however, it might be a while before the church can acquire the G650 jet even if they are able to raise the nearly $70 million needed to purchase the aircraft, according to Gulfstream’s sales director for New Jersey, Delaware and New York, Kevin Valik.

“It’s kind of a tough detail,” Valik told The Christian Post in a telephone interview Tuesday.

He said there are only 120 Gulfstream G650 jets that have been delivered globally since the company started meeting orders on the jet in 2013.

Since 2013, the company has delivered about 50 of the jets annually and they are getting orders for the multimillion dollar aircraft “every day.” The company now has a backlog on orders for the aircraft through the beginning of 2018.

Getting a used G650 also appears to have gotten a lot tougher since March when the company advertised one on it’s website for $67,950,000.

“We are no longer working with that seller,” said Valik, who noted that he doesn’t know if the seller wants to keep the plane now or might be trying to sell it through other avenues.

  1. Creflo, I have a quote from the Bible, “It will be easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of HEAVEN.” So enjoy your flights and keep the air conditioning COLD.

  2. There is no such person as jesus christ his real name is Arruis pisco and paul never was on the face oft the earth. I cant believe in the age of Google ppl still believe in this foolishness. This is what pie in the sky gets you, I read the blk church has taken in billions and the only thing they’ve built are churchs and dont mean chicken. Yet they go and ask the white man for jobs.

  3. Wow!! $65,000,000 could send 500 students to Howard University for 4 years. $65,000,000 could provide 65,000 teenagers with a job this summer. $65,000,000 could provide 65,000 teenagers summer employment.

    With $65,000,000 several senior assisted living buildings could be erected and the remaining funds would be used to completely redevelop one of the poorest sections of Georgia. The board should be voting to help the least, the lost and the less fortunate.

  4. Names hv meanings jesus is a greek name with connection to all of the other pagan greek god names. Do ur research ppl. History has always been written. No hebrew connection, and plz dont say Immanuel . Matthew mark luke john peter paul all european names not african names. Egypt is in the so called continent named africa, do u even kno where Israel is located?

    Let me preface this by saying that I’m not one of those people who thinks the President is personally responsible for every thing that goes on in the world. But I’m thinking one of the last things President Obama should do before he leaves office is to RETRACT TAX FREE STATUS FROM ALL RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS!!!

    • Church Girl on said:

      Then that would mean less money the church has to fund ministry and different community programs. Not a good idea!

  6. Idol worshipping at its greatest. Blacks slaves believe in anything. Thats why were at the bottom of society. The title of ur book is king james version, start from there my ppl. The Most High of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob never said one word in your greek scriptures (new testament). The whole thing was made up by the romans. The Most High said his chosen land is in Israel but the head quarters for ur lord babt jesus is in rome (Vatican). Wake up my my ppl we hv been lead astray.

    If he’s playing games shame on him if he’s not good for him that’s between him and God. Remember the same way that you judge you will be judged. May God have mercy on us all and may God bless us all. P.S. always remember to take the plank out of your eye first!

    It someone in his church need a bill paid food a place to stay a husband or a wife has loss there jobs a child is going to bed with out food because there parents or mother have giving her pay check for a million dollars plane for him and his family shoes clothing i can go on thus said the lord.

  9. I do not have the power to say what a person does or does not deserve, but I just KNEW he would get that plane!

    Perhaps Creflo prayed for his desire; prayed without ceasing and God answered his prayers. Only God knows.

    It is my hope and prayer that people such as Creflo use their abilities to do God’s Will.

    It baffles me too, that you will pay the nail/hair robbers for a measly fix to attribute to your outward appearance, and will not work on u r inwardly appearance just beguiles me. You don’t get mad as to the hate that being watered on a daily basis. But u get mad a my pastor for having a true need for this plane. Yeah his last name is dollar. The Lord wants a giving heart and not grudging one. Don’t worry or comment about what we CHRISTIANS GOD WITH OUR MONEY! Try JESUS and you will see.

  11. Terrie on said:

    This is a tragedy. This place is run like a business and not a church. The last name says it all. The almighty dollar is the focus and not helping people to come to God, or helping people period. Where are the Community programs for the less fortunate who have little or nothing to eat of wear and cannot even afford bus fare .He could do so much to help others, but the theme to him is help myself and my family. Did he attempt to coerce his flock to purchase his daughters song on itunes while sitting in church ?

    Again I say unto you:

    Hell is full beyond capacity but “SATAN” has already started construction on the others. This is sad
    beyond belief. Whatever happened to preaching God’s word instead of “I NEED A PLANE”!!!??? We as Black people in this 21st century have forgotten all about 1. Truth 2. Self Respect 3. Teaching our own 4. Taking care of the elderly who might I add has lead the way for us to be where we are. Know it’s all about 4. False prophets 5. Mega churches.6 Crime against our own 7. Drugs and sexual misconduct on all levels. I am sure as a “thunder” storm that God will rain down on man when that time comes. America laughs at us always and don’t you think for one second they aren’t laughing at this. Technology was design to see who would do what and to keep record of. We give them the ammo to do exactly what the system does. Set us back even farther. JESUS CHRIST people give this “ignorance” a break. By the way this is not the so-call haters! This is fact and truth and don’t you forget it.

    • What white America thinks about the black community or church is irrelevant. No matter what we do as a people, they have been programmed from birth to see us a certain way, and there is no changing that. Besides, white ministers have fleeced their flocks as well so this isn’t something new. What I do care about is how God views this, and Creflo will answer for his money changing. I’m just baffled as to how gullible human beings can be. Why does he still have any in his congregation.Just goes to show People will follow anyone they perceive to have power and prestige.

      • Joy2 on said:

        @Hip and Cool: Yeah (SOME) Black folks are always worried about what white folks think. Personally I don’t give a D what white folks think!!

  13. Eunice on said:

    Thank you LORD for getting him his plane. For all u haters…..the Lord has promises for everyone ..if continue to rely on u r self efforts u will not get what he promised. I am a believer OF THE BLOOD and I donate to all. Fight a real cause like racial profiling, hunger, neighborhood degradation , real abuse children, the disabled vets and Leave my church alone.

  14. Creflo . . . you are a pimp and a hustler, a good one albeit, and I have seen a few.

    Can anyone imagine the tax free income, for him and his staff! He has the money to drop 65 mil on a plane? Creflo, walk around the block and give that money to the neighborhood people that really need it! I guess their hustle wasn’t as good as yours . Well . . . safe travels. BTW people are in need of your help in Syria, now they need the word! LOL

  15. It never ceases to amaze me how gullible people can be. People are so quick to worship the god of celebrity, which is all Dolla Bill is. This man will answer to the God he claims to serve one day, and if he doesn’t repent of fleecing the saints, in he judgement God will declare that He never knew Dolla.

  16. Igbonidudu on said:

    Wow, daddy Creflo got his wish and @sunshine feels it’s ok. What is wrong with commercial planes? Jesus walked everywhere he went and the first hymn that these folks sing is “I want to be like Jesus.” Have you noticed how all these so-called pastors all over the world have jets and planes? Where does that leave the folks in their congregation that struggle everyday and his board is justifying buying the plane for him. Wow

  17. I am tired of people acting like Pastor Dolla is trying to rob a bank . Because he asked his congregation to help out in his time of need. The don’t tell you all the wonderful things that he do for people of all walks of the world . As well as his congregation . Good for him for getting his plane he should have gotten two . God bless you Pastor Dolla and Taffy and the congregation. love always sunshine 85

    • He’d be better off robbing a bank, than robbing God, which is exactly what he’s doing. You need to stop being so gullible, and plant God’s money in good soil. Creflo is not in need and its bizarre that you’d even suggest something like that.

  18. Joy2 on said:

    People can be so gullible! Especially to a religion that most of the time doesn’t grant the simplest of requests. SMH Hard!!

  19. This is confusion, we are always confused by the religious quackery of the clerics and wind up “drinking the Kool-Aid. They should study the word, the God in us will make us do the right thing. No where, does it infer we are to live greedily.

  20. Beeg1966 on said:

    This is so sad, he going all over the world preaching the Word of God. And that is fine, more power to him, but if he and the Board at World Change are lying on God, as my grand using to say “old little children”..

  21. ATLANTA IS GOING TO BE ON FIRE IN THE LAST DAYS YOU MIGHT NOT SEE ACTUAL FIRE BUT IT WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE HOT THERE. DON’T MOVE TO ATLANTA OR TEXAS IT’S GOING TO GET REAL HOT.

    Let’s see if he raises even half that amount for mentoring programs and afterschool in the poor communities in his area.

    • Joy2 on said:

      Demp: Uuummmm I’m thinking that not going to happen. If it was going to happen on a mass scale I’m thinking his organization would have done so by now. His organization may already have some programs in place in the US…..but if he can raise 65 Mil for a plane I’m thinking what they are doing in the states isn’t enough

  23. BLACK PEOPLE YOU BETTER NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT BLAMING OUR GOVERNMENT OR WHITE PEOPLE WHEN OUR CALAMITY COMES. WILL GOD LAUGH AT US? BLACK PEOPLE AS USUAL, EVERYONE FOR SELF. YOU CAN’T MOVE HERE YOU EAT FROM MY TABLE EVERYDAY? THEN YOU ACCUSE THE POOR FOR NEEDING SECTION 8 & FOOD STAMPS WE SHOULDN’T BE ON FOOD STAMPS. YES YOU CAN BE ON FOOD STAMPS THE GOV’T IS ON CHRIST SHOULDERS IT’S OK. WELFARE IS GOD’S IDEA TOO. EVERY THING WAS MADE FOR HIM & BY HIM EVEN WELFARE. GO AHEAD ASK FOR A RAISE YOU DESERVE $15 AN HOUR YOU DESERVE A PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD AFTER WORK. EVEN IT YOU DON’T HAVE A BACHELOR OR MASTERS DEGREE TELL DEVIL & DEVILISH PEOPLE THEY ARE LIARS! SLAVES WERE NEVER HOMELESS.

  24. CREFLO IS A SIGN FROM GOD. His last name is Dollar & it’s about to GO UP & DOWN. BLACK PEOPLE YOU ARE NOT BEING TAUGHT CURRENT PROPHESY WHEN IT COMES TO PENDING DANGER.. OUR ECONOMY IS ABOUT TO GO BUST IN 4 MONTHS. OUR PASTORS ARE FLEECING THE FLOCK THEN THEY’RE GOING TO SCATTER YOU! I SAW THE WORD FROM THE LORD A FEW DAYS AGO ABOUT WHAT GOD IS GOING TO DO JUDAH & iSRAEL YOU BLACK PEOPLE. JESUS SAID FEED MY FLOCK FEED MY SHEEP! INSTEAD OF US JOINING TOGETHER TO SAVE MONEY WE’RE ABOUT TO SPEND UNNECESSARY MONEY. WHERE’S OUR WALMART? OUR PEOPLE LACK TRADE SKILLS. WHERE’S OUR SAMSUNG OUR AT&T OUR SUPERMARKETS OUR HOME DEPOT’S OUR MATTRESS CO’S? WE DON’T MANUFACTURE NOTHING BUT SNEAKERS & ALCOHOL & PERFUME. WE HAVE FAILED TO PROVIDE A MATTRESS FOR JESUS TO LAY HIS HEAD. WHO’S JESUS HIS PEOPLE

  25. I said it. on said:

    Balling! LOL. Totally hilarious. A new Black Wall Street would have been nice, programs that deliver accurate information about the history of American Africans for empowerment of the people, etc., but a jet is cool too.

  26. Instead of wanting a plane Creflo, you should be helping the less fortunate in such ways as rebuilding the black communities, jobs, homeownerships; create a New Black Wall Street.”. And for Mac Ben and other racist trolls whites do this kind of thing “All The Time, ” same script, different casts.”

    Dollar is going to bust hell wide open for lying on God. Delta fly’s anywhere this asshole need to go.

    • Carrieline Johnson on said:

      You People need to stop Judging. Only God can judge this Pastor Cleflo Dollar. His congregational board decided to give him this plane for whatever reason…It could be to bless other people. When you don’t understand the Miracle that God can work, the world continue to be blind. We are focusing on how this man is making his money and attacking his character for something that was given to him. He didn’t take anything. It was given to him. There could be many reasons why this plane was given.
