Televangelist asking for $54 million to fund 4th private jet

Louisiana televangelist seeks donations for $54M private jet: report

Mr Duplantis justified the request by saying that Jesus had told people to "go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, now how we gonna do that?"

"I consider that preachers should go on each out there voice, each out there outlet to get this gospel preached to the world".

He claimed in the video that he was told by God to "believe" specifically for a brand new Falcon 7X, which costs $54 million according to the report.

Duplantis says Jesus Christ "wouldn't be riding a donkey" today - "he'd be in an airplane flying all over the world". "Think about it for a minute".

The "prosperity gospel", for those not familiar, teaches that God wants believers to be wealthy and healthy, and that usually comes about in return for giving money to the evangelists who preach it.

His ministry would own it and the aircraft would be available for future leaders of his organization.

Earlier this year, prosperity preacher Kenneth Copeland acquired a Gulfstream V jet from director Tyler Perry, paid for by donations from his followers.

A TV evangelist in the United States has admitted to having second thoughts about asking his congregation to buy him a private jet.

At one point she said she believes she was sacked because of fears over a potential boycott of the show's advertisers. Sykes had responded to Barr's invective by announcing via Twitter that she wouldn't return to the show.

During his show "This Week With Jesse" on May 21, evangelical minister Jesse Duplantis asked worshipers to help him pay for a new jet.

Because God works in mysterious ways, we give you the story of a Louisiana-based televangelist who only recently reached out to his flock to fulfill God's works.

The AFP reported that the preacher has already gone through three private lanes - "burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ".

Born and raised in New Orleans, Duplantis performed in the 1970s under the stage name Jerry Jaxon with the rock band Summer Wine.

It's not unusual for longtime preacher Jesse Duplantis to make videos calling out to his supporters asking for help with resources for his ministry. "The mess that the airlines are in today I would have to stop.at least 75 to 80, more like 90 percent of what we're doing because you can't get there from here". This will be the fourth private plane owned by Duplantis' ministry if his request for financial aid pays off. Duplantis told viewers, "Pray about becoming a partner to it".

But if they're still not sold on the idea, Duplantis had one more thought.
