Creflo Dollar needs a new plane and he is not only asking for your help in buying this, but has calculated the amount that would work best for a donation. The Televangelist Dollar and his ministries believes the plane best suited for his needs it the Gulfstream G650, which is dubbed the biggest, fastest and the most luxurious plane that Gulfstream has ever built.
According to The Huffington Post in an article published March 13, Dollar’s goal once acquiring the Gulfstream G650 is not only bring him and his entourage around the world, but he can also provide help to the poor. This plane also has the longest range and it is the most technically advanced aircraft that Gulfstream has ever offered. It appears nothing but the best will suffice for the globe-trotting Dollar who wants to bring the good word across the globe.
The Christian Post reports today that Dollar is traveling by commercial jet liners today, but the Creflo Dollar Ministries reports that plane is needed to carry people and food to countries in dire need. It may sound like a contradiction to some that a $65 million luxury jet is needed to carry food supplies to the poor worldwide. Wouldn’t a run-of-the-mill jet used for such things today work just as well?
If the appeal for your money for this Project G650 campaign is successful, this will supply Dollar with the epitome of luxury travel. The campaign was originally posted to Creflo Dollar Ministries’ website.
The campaign to get Dollar’s followers to cough up the dough for this new vessel of luxury is seen in a video that asks $300 each from 200,000 donors for his new transportation needs. The written appeal created for Dollar’s new plane campaign lets his followers know that if the $300 is a bit stiff, “Your love gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated.”
Back in 2012 Forbes Magazine published an article on the then brand spanking new Gulfstream G650 that came with the price tag of $65 million. There was a waiting list of 200 people back then ready to get their hands on the luxury sky-liner!
The ministries video goes even further with the campaign’s attempt to wrangle in the money by talking about the two mishaps with Dollar’s old plane, one occurred while his wife and children were aboard. The Creflo Dollar Ministries appeal for the plane donations lets their followers know that “”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.”
Dollar’s wife Taffi and their kids were on board Dollar’s old plane when a mechanical failure caused a runway accident, which as one of the two mishaps with the old plane. The other incident happened on a trip to Australia and they experienced engine failure. The video’s plea for money includes pointing out these mishaps with the plane and then stating;
“… We are asking members, partners, and supporters of this ministry to assist us in acquiring a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace.”
