Creflo Dollar’s online fundraising for a Gulftream jet may have been blocked by social media, but his ministry’s
board of governors said in a statement that the church will go ahead and buy one anyways, “at a time, place and price of our choosing.”
“We wholeheartedly reject the notion that the ministry’s airplane project is an imposition on our community or that it somehow takes advantage of our people,” WCCI said in a lengthy statement. “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.”
Only the best for Dollar, y’all.
And the church is scoffing at its haters, who feel that Dollar doesn’t deserve such lavished flying.
“A long-range, high-speed, intercontinental jet aircraft is a tool that is necessary in order to fulfill the mission of the ministry,” says WCCI’s statement justifying the restart of the plane fundraising. “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.”
It continues: “We respectfully request that those who are not involved respect our right to practice what we believe, and only ask of the press that they report facts, and not fictional reports or biased perspectives. We encourage our community, and our pastors, to dream big, because we know that God loves us just that much.”
