15 Christian Leaders That Make More Money Getting Out Of Bed Than You’ll Make All Year


 

 


John-Hagee perachingHonorable Mention: John Hagee


NET WORTH – $5,000,000 +

John Hagee really is the poor man of this group, with a net worth of only 5 Million dollars. He is practically the pauper of the televangelist world. In fact, he is so poor I almost didn’t include him. Why is John so poor among these giants of theology?

I believe that John is the poor televangelist because made the horrible mistake of going to school and learning that the prosperity gospel isn’t the john hagee home 8 Sherborne Lanemain point of Jesus’ message. Even though he only has a partial degree from Southwestern Assemblies of God University, he is still the ONLY educated person on this list. If he knew what was good for him he would have dropped out like the brilliant theologians listed here.

What does John do when he’s not rubbing his two pennies together? He goes house shopping!

For being the poorest pastor on this list he has a rather expensive home, which I am sure is listed as a tax free parsonage. The Hagee residence at 8 Sherborne Lane can be viewed on google maps and almost any home sale website.

 


Eddie-Long15. Eddie Long


NET WORTH – $5,000,000 – $15,000,000 +

According to The Richest Eddie Long has a net worth of about 5 Million dollars. This might not sound impressive but hold on to your bottoms. This estimate is after he’s been divorced twice, investigated for domestic abuse, investigated for tax fraud, sued over a ponzi scheme, and investigated for multiple accounts of sexual crimes involving young boys. I don’t know how much it costs to lawyer-up for all of that, but I know it costs a lot more than 5 Million dollars to make all that disappear. What I was able to find was only the settlement for the damages done by the ponzi scheme which was settled out of court for an easy 1 Million dollars (not including lawyer costs).

Despite looking like he’s only 35, Eddie Long is 62 years old and has in ministry a very very long time. Combine that with being a black pastor in Georgia and some good book sales driven by a 25,000 member church and you have yourself a lot of cash flow.

 


randy-and-paula-white14. Randy & Paula White


NET WORTH – $10,000,000 – ?

I am not sure what is worse: the fact that one of the richest preaching couples have gotten a divorce and still get to keep the ministry or that Randy has the balls to call himself a Bishop….. A BISHOP!!! At first I thought this was a mistake, but his Facebook page verifies it. “Pastor, Bishop. Founder of Kristen Renee Foundation.

According to The Richest, Paula alone is worth over 5 Million dollars. It is hard to tell what the combined net worth was before they had their recent divorce but The Tampa Tribune reports that the church was bringing on over 55 Million dollars each year. After the divorce many of the assets got liquidated. Their home in Bayshore was purchased to 1.06 Million in 2007. When they sold it in 2010 it listed for over 2 Million. So even in the middle of ruin they are making money!

 


ed young13. Ed Young


NET WORTH – $11,000,000 – ?

According to a Dallas News station Ed Young enjoys all the standard assets of the wealth. He owns his own 8.5 Million dollar private jet, a 1.5 Million dollar home, a 1 Million dollar condo, a 1 Million dollar salary, and a $240,000 housing allowance. Ed young is so rich that his TAX FREE housing allowance is quadruple most people’s annual salary.

Ed Young also has a Million dollar wife and he keeps preaching sermons on to let people know that he has a ton of sex with. The best money can buy!

 


Joyce Meyer12. Joyce Meyer


NET WORTH – $25,000,000 – ?

According the The Richest website, Joyce has a net worth of over 25 Million dollars. Imagine for a second that the average American made about 50k each year. They would have to work for 500 years to make what Joyce Meyer makes in just one year.

Joyce Meyer makes so much money that some of her furniture costs more than most people’s new cars. In a congressional report done on some of the televangelists, it was found that Joyce had a $23,000 camode and a $30,000 coffee table and Joyce Meyer expensive furnituremuch more. A partial list can be obtained HERE which has initial findings from the Jefferson County real estate assessor’s office. A snippet of the letter shown here in this post shows that these items have already been assessed and a value assigned.

In addition to extravagant furniture, Joyce Meyer also has a mansion that would be fit for a whole continent of Kings. Not only that but her property contains other house including a pool house that would dwarf most people’s real home. The best part is that since they are listed as “parsonages” they are under the tax-exempt umbrella. Isn’t to great to do God’s work?

 


Benny Hinn11. Benny Hinn


NET WORTH – $45,000,000 +

Benny is known for blowing people and hitting them with his coat. What people don’t always know is that he’s made millions pushing people over. Not just a few millions but about 45 Million and growing.

According to The Richest Benny has a 4.5 Million dollar private jet and an $80,000 SUV, and $80,000 sports car, a $265,000 BMW, a 1 Million dollar annual salary, and a 10 Million dollar mansion. This man knows how to live in luxury!

 


Pastors Chris Oyakhilome10. Chris Oyakhilome


NET WORTH – $50,000,000 +

This preacher was at the center of a $35 million money laundering case in which he was accused of siphoning funds from his church to foreign banks. But do not fear, he has also amassed millions from the hard working poor of Nigeria.

Like #2 on this list, Chris was able to take the money he received from the church, reinvest it in secular businesses, and become even richer! Among his business are newspapers, magazines, a local television station, a record label, satellite TV, hotels and extensive real estate. (Reported by Forbes)

 


Joel Osteen

9. Joel Osteen


NET WORTH – $55,000,000 +

Newsmax lists Joel’s net worth between 40 and 55 Million dollars depending on how book sales are included. It pains me that he is on this list because he no longer takes a salary from his church but when he was receiving a salary form the church it was a humble $200,000.

His current house in River Oak is less than humble at 10.5 Million dollars. His previous property which he still owns is valued at 4 Million dollars. Of all of the uber-wealthy televangelists Joel might be the most palatable. Even though he practices the prosperity gospel principles, he does not make that the core of his message and he no longer takes a salary from his church…… even though I assume he is receiving other favors from the church in the form of tax relief and housing allowances. I know that he was investigated on the housing allowance but I do not know the details.

 


TD Jakes8. TD Jakes


NET WORTH – $18,000,000 – $150,000,000 +

TD really brings in some cash. According to the Atlanta Black Star, Jakes is worth more than 18 Million dollars. That is over 200 times the average wage for the community in Texas that attend his church.

Just like Joyce, TD rakes in a lot of money from books sales and speaking arrangements. What does someone like Jakes charge for a speaking gig?TD jakes mansion

According to PreacherPimp.com TD charges a minimum of $122,000 to show up and preach a sermon at your place. Maybe I am wrong, but once you’re a millionaire 18 times it seems like you can probably afford to do some preaching without charging the equivalence of a regular person’s wages for 2 full years.

A report on wealth pastors made by Nehanda Radio reported that Jakes had a total net worth of over 150 Million, but no list of assets can be found other than his 2 Million dollar home. Whether it’s 18 Million or 150 Million, this man is swimming like Scrooge McDuck in money.

 


pastor-robert-tilton7. Robert Tilton


NET WORTH – $100,000,000 +

Robert Tilton might be the undisputed king of the late night healing programs. It is next to impossible to know exactly what his net worth total is because he’s been in the business so long. But it’s been reported that during the peak of his career he was making 80 Million dollars each year. I am not talking about a grand total, I am talking about a yearly income.

If I had to guess I would say he still owns hundreds of millions of dollars, but without a financial disclosure or an IRS report it is hard to tell.

 


Paul-Jan-Crouch6. Paul & Jan Crouch


NET WORTH – $100,000,000 +

If you are at all familiar with the TBN preacher you will have seen this couple here and there. Together with the crooks Tammy and Jim Bakker, they co-founded the TBN. So all these wealth televangelists on this list have these guys to thank. They basically invented the QVC of preaching.

It is also difficult to know just how much wealth was amassed by these two but what we do know is that they have 13 different mansions, a $100,000 RV, a 50 Million dollar private jet, about half a million each year in ministry related expenses. All in all, one would have to assume that hundreds of millions of dollars in assets are sitting in their names and now their kid’s names.

 


Peter Popoff5. Peter Popoff


NET WORTH – $100,000,000 +

The good and honorable reverend, Peter Popoff, is another late night info-mercial evangelist. His gimmick is usually giving away free items like Miracle Spring Water or Miracle Manna which will magically make all your dreams come true. He will send this free gift to you for no charge…….and then will follow it up with 100 letters and petitions for money or else the thing he just shipped you wont work.

In estimating Peter’s net worth one has to take into account that he is in round #2 of this whole stealing your money peter-popoffs-housebusiness. In the first round he was knocked down hard and almost KOed due to racking up huge debts with over 800 creditors. It was reported that before filing for bankruptcy in 1987 he was making over 4 Million dollars each year.

He made a comeback in in the late nineties and by 2005 he was making around 23 Million dollars a year. His mansion on 430 Long Canyon Road, in Bradbury California, is listed as a $41,000 tax liability. That means that Peter and his wife Elizabeth pay more in property taxes than most people will make all year. The house on Zillow is listed as a 10 Million dollar home.

 


creflo-dollar4. Creflo Dollar


NET WORTH – $100,000,000 +

Creflo Dollar is reported by The Richest as having a meager net worth of about 27 Million dollars. This is calculated mostly based on assets in his name. Two of these assets are homes. Creflo has one home in Atlanta, worth a humble 1 Million dollars. His other home in New Jersey is worth over 2 Million dollars. The really sad part about all this is that he actually stole money from the church in order to buy the house. He was arrested and still owns both homes. That is impressive.Creflo dollar house arial

The revenue from his church is simply staggering. In 2006 his church reported taking in over 69 Million dollars. How much of that money that goes to fund Creflo’s life style is uncertain. What is certain is that he already owns one private jet and recently got in hot water for pressuring his congregation for more money so he can buy an even better jet!! The shocking part of this whole thing is that he’s actually getting the 70 Million dollar jet even though the mass media ravaged him over the ordeal. Why is he getting it? He says its “necessary for the ministry.” I’m sure it is Creflo. Whatever you have to tell yourself to sleep at night.

 

 


Bishop David Oyedepo 3. Bishop David Oyedepo


NET WORTH – $150,000,000 +

David Oyedepo is listed by Forbes as having a net worth of over 150 Million dollars. At this level of wealth the first couple pastors on this list appear to be mere novices in the business. In addition to having a higher net worth than the country he lives in (Nigeria, and not that’s not really true) he also has 2 mansions and 4 private jets. This pastor is so wealthy that he has his own fleet of jets.

One might ask how a pastor in one of the poorest countries on earth has a net worth of over 150 Million dollars, and that is a fair questions. The reason this is true is because the poorest people one earth are also the ones with the least education and the most likely to give money to religious people promising them riches in return. How else did he obtain such wealth? He invested some if it to start his own publishing company. Because what’s better than publishing a ton of book? Answer: Publishing them and also printing them yourself at a high margin.

 


Edir Macedo2. Edir Macedo


NET WORTH – $1,100,000,000 +

Edir is right on level with the richest pastors in the world (below) or even surpasses him. With an estimated net worth of 1.1 Billion dollars, he is easily the #2 or #1 richest pastors to ever walk the earth.

How did he acquire such wealth? Some would say (me) that he is taking money from poor people and laughing all the way to the bank. The only problem with this statement is that he IS the bank. Edir is so wealthy that he actually owns his own bank.

 


Kenneth copeland1. Kenneth Copeland


NET WORTH – $1,200,000,000 +

Kenneth Copeland is the Donald Trump of televangelism. From his own mouth, he has claimed to have over a BILLION dollars. According to his own words God told him he needed to be a billionaire.

Ken also owns TWO of his own private jets, a Cessna 550 Citation Bravo and Cessna 750 Citation X. Because one just isn’t enough to fly him to parts unknown. His first jet was known as the “preaching machine.” I can only imagine what the second jet was called.Kenneth copeland house

Kenneth Copeland was also investigated by the Senate in 2007, along side Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn and others.
In the letter from Senator Grassley it was reported that his private jet had made several layovers in Maui, Fiji, and Honolulu, which were all claimed to be ministry trips and therefore qualified the jet to remain tax exempt. Also tax exempt is their huge mansion, valued at just over 6 Million dollars and includes its own landing strip.

The letter also details that the church alone has over 20 Million dollars in assets yet it takes huge loans from the Copelands, only to be paid back shortly after with high interest rates. That doesn’t seem fishy at all.


 

 

My Fellow Christians: Do you ever wonder where the money you donate to your favorite Christian Radio Broadcasters winds up ?

Do you ever wonder how these scam artists become so rich? I guess you could say they invest your money in real estate. Their own property and it’s your cash they use to invest with.. .. And here you have a  glance at what this property looks like!

Jack Van Impe has a TV series called Jack Van Impe Presents that is nationally and internationally syndicated. His industry is said to be worth nearly 12 million dollars. Here his residence can be seen along a line of very large mansions. This particular religious leader also believes and shares with his followers that black holes are actually entrances to Hell. You can’t make this stuff up!

Does this make you feel that you have entrusted your cash with a godly steward who will further the Kingdom of God or simply laugh himself sick at your own abject stupidity?

In fewer words ,  today’s ridiculous and   lunacy filled church can’t even hold a candle to the Church of Laodicea.. 

Whereas the Church at Laodicea was apparently a wealthy institution there’s nothing to indicate that their wealth was ripped off from the poor and the stupid . That’s not the case with the church of the here and now. Today all pseudo Christian institutions engage in fraud and deception designed to swindle the less astute and those barely able to survive.  

All of today’s pseudo Christian institutions and cultural community venues are demonic in nature . This includes the broad spectrum of mega churches as well as Christian radio  tricksters and fraudulent gospel music hustlers.

The particular danger found in Christian broadcasting is not only of  its  grave moral dimension , consistent with the large mega church organizations, but also due to its ability to broadcast to a much larger audience via the airwaves and on the internet . This is why all true believers must take special note of this evil operating in broadcasting  and coming within the very homes and computers and moving vehicles.

And because of the clear danger inherent in these enterprises ,they must be acceptable to those demon possessed individuals in control of the broader mass media industry :the very murderers of the Lord Jesus ..

These folks have the blood of Christ on them which will result in their spending an eternity in the Black flames of hell….’Let His blood be upon us and upon our children”

Kay Arthur

Kay Arthur started off as a model in college and then moved on to nursing school. A series of bad relationships and life choices led her to end up finding salvation in Christianity. Since then she has married a new man and began her life as a religious leader earning herself a 4 million dollar fortune.

Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen has an internationally syndicated television series. Seems to be the way that most of these religious leaders earn their wealth. Osteen is also a New York Times best-selling author. His career in religion has earned him a massive fortune of over 40 million dollars.

My Christian People: Some of the most gifted and accomplished broadcast swindlers you can ever hope to find on the radio dial ,broadcast to you from the  Rejoice Radio .org studios located in their sham college [ Pensacola Christian College] : known in recent years to be a major center of  homosexual activity ,located on the sunny  Florida Gulf Coast ,known as the Gay Riviera!

The  staff of this money-making  outfit have engaged the services of a highly talented coterie of cheap sleazy jokers and con artists ,rom various walks of life, to present to you a day long presentation of Christian musical sentimentality to better swindle and cheat  you out of your cash. .. Please be advised!   ..These filthy lying scumbags are robbing their listeners blind, and are getting away with it, because they have the backing of the Jewish world plague on humanity . In other words they work together hand in glove to not only steal from you but to help these diabolical monstrosities destroy what little remains of the True Christian Faith. And the method yielding the greatest results has been to use the Christian community as a battering ram against itself.

When you listen to Rejoice Radio ,you are hearing a gang of cheap extortionists lying to you and  deceiving  you daily. This is no mean feat but takes a clever coordination of talent and effort. This is why they employ a group of filthy   degenerates  like Mr. Gay [Craig] Mattson ,Rhonda Autry and the constantly lamenting and lying Dr. Jimmy  Mintz!

All of these jokers combined  ,including the administrative  staff of PCC. are nothing but the very scum of humanity ;whose only goal is to enrich themselves at your expense.

This is all they care about. The big beautiful homes you may have seen ,belonging to well know religious scam artists ,are exactly the same as those owned by Gay [Craig]  Mattson  and all the other clever and  gifted jokers and con-men. Believe me, the only thing these scumbags  want is your money and for this ,they will do whatever it takes to part you from your wealth.

To do this effectively and seamlessly they must first dumb down the audience ,and so comes the need to find fellow travelers in the sordid world of religion swindle. This is why they hire another gang of  cheap sleazy swindlers over at VCY AMERICA. Here ,in the name of promoting a so-called ministry ,they  fully engage in presenting to their stupid and gullible audience, one abomination after another. Anything goes with these bastards operating the CROSS  TALK radio call in program ,operating out of the VCY AMERICA studios in Milwaukee. You name it they bring to you: whether it’s a step by step outline of sickening and bloody botched abortions . Or  a detailed and nothing to the imagination blow-by-blow description and analysis of every sexual abomination known to afflict humanity.

And that’s just the tip of the sick and disgusting iceberg … Scumbags like the host of this  satanic Circus Mr. Jim Schneider called  “Cross Talk a bible based  radio ministry.” And this fails to mention the total and blind support these filthy lying carrion eaters extend to the Jewish world plague ,relishing with these monstrosities the sadistic and ritual  murder of Jesus Christ.

But wait ,there’s more. How can we neglect the planned deceptions heard daily by another gang of  mind  dumbing down  jackasses pitching their special kind of stupid ,called The Institute for Creation Research .  These could well be among the most dangerous elements in the phony baloney Christian Culture. Here ,these vultures entangle the  truly stupid into their web of ignorance. I doubt whether they believe in a six-day creation or a Noah’s Ark encounter but they want you to accept these bible stories as geologically and anthropologically correct.   What these jokers do is to entrap the gullible ,mainly among the senile senior class ,telling them they have a superior understanding of scripture and to be able to continue this much-needed work ,well How about leaving us your cash and property in your will . It’s an old trick friends ,Don’t any of you fall for any of these bald face lies you hear on phony  Christian radio.
King James Bible
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  ..

This verse of scripture puts the lie to all of these lying  bastards hustling you everyday on the air ,by nauseating you with every abomination their corrupted minds can come up with and the same time ,they tell you that they uphold the literal biblical text. And that they can easily understand it as well. When you listen to all the garbage on VCY AMERICA do you really believe they  are in conformity with the above verse of scripture. Are you that stupid that you can’t understand what all of these lying scumbags are doing to you so as to enrich themselves at your expense.

If your pastor drives this leave the church

In the first round he was knocked down hard and almost KOed due to racking up huge debts with over 800 creditors. It was reported that before filing for bankruptcy in 1987 he was making over 4 Million dollars each year.

He made a comeback in in the late nineties and by 2005 he was making around 23 Million dollars a year. His mansion on 430 Long Canyon Road, in Bradbury California, is listed as a $41,000 tax liability. That means that Peter and his wife Elizabeth pay more in property taxes than most people will make all year. The house on Zillow is listed as a 10 Million dollar home.

 


creflo-dollar4. Creflo Dollar


NET WORTH – $100,000,000 +

Creflo Dollar is reported by The Richest as having a meager net worth of about 27 Million dollars. This is calculated mostly based on assets in his name. Two of these assets are homes. Creflo has one home in Atlanta, worth a humble 1 Million dollars. His other home in New Jersey is worth over 2 Million dollars. The really sad part about all this is that he actually stole money from the church in order to buy the house. He was arrested and still owns both homes. That is impressive.Creflo dollar house arial

The revenue from his church is simply staggering. In 2006 his church reported taking in over 69 Million dollars. How much of that money that goes to fund Creflo’s life style is uncertain. What is certain is that he already owns one private jet and recently got in hot water for pressuring his congregation for more money so he can buy an even better jet!! The shocking part of this whole thing is that he’s actually getting the 70 Million dollar jet even though the mass media ravaged him over the ordeal. Why is he getting it? He says its “necessary for the ministry.” I’m sure it is Creflo. Whatever you have to tell yourself to sleep at night.

 

 


Bishop David Oyedepo 3. Bishop David Oyedepo


NET WORTH – $150,000,000 +

David Oyedepo is listed by Forbes as having a net worth of over 150 Million dollars. At this level of wealth the first couple pastors on this list appear to be mere novices in the business. In addition to having a higher net worth than the country he lives in (Nigeria, and not that’s not really true) he also has 2 mansions and 4 private jets. This pastor is so wealthy that he has his own fleet of jets.

One might ask how a pastor in one of the poorest countries on earth has a net worth of over 150 Million dollars, and that is a fair questions. The reason this is true is because the poorest people one earth are also the ones with the least education and the most likely to give money to religious people promising them riches in return. How else did he obtain such wealth? He invested some if it to start his own publishing company. Because what’s better than publishing a ton of book? Answer: Publishing them and also printing them yourself at a high margin.

 


Edir Macedo2. Edir Macedo


NET WORTH – $1,100,000,000 +

Edir is right on level with the richest pastors in the world (below) or even surpasses him. With an estimated net worth of 1.1 Billion dollars, he is easily the #2 or #1 richest pastors to ever walk the earth.

How did he acquire such wealth? Some would say (me) that he is taking money from poor people and laughing all the way to the bank. The only problem with this statement is that he IS the bank. Edir is so wealthy that he actually owns his own bank.

 


Kenneth copeland1. Kenneth Copeland


NET WORTH – $1,200,000,000 +

Kenneth Copeland is the Donald Trump of televangelism. From his own mouth, he has claimed to have over a BILLION dollars. According to his own words God told him he needed to be a billionaire.

Ken also owns TWO of his own private jets, a Cessna 550 Citation Bravo and Cessna 750 Citation X. Because one just isn’t enough to fly him to parts unknown. His first jet was known as the “preaching machine.” I can only imagine what the second jet was called.Kenneth copeland house

Kenneth Copeland was also investigated by the Senate in 2007, along side Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn and others.
In the letter from Senator Grassley it was reported that his private jet had made several layovers in Maui, Fiji, and Honolulu, which were all claimed to be ministry trips and therefore qualified the jet to remain tax exempt. Also tax exempt is their huge mansion, valued at just over 6 Million dollars and includes its own landing strip.

The letter also details that the church alone has over 20 Million dollars in assets yet it takes huge loans from the Copelands, only to be paid back shortly after with high interest rates. That doesn’t seem fishy at all.
