Televangelist Jesse Duplantis Asks for Donations for $54M Private Jet

Jesse Duplantis the Destrehan-based prosperity gospel televangelist is shown in a still image from a video on his ministry's website

With the new jet, "we can go anywhere in the world in one stop", Duplantis said in the video, making it easier to preach to more people.

The jet "costs about $54 million new", says USA Today, "although used ones are listed online for as little as $20 million".

Jesse Duplantis said God had told him to buy a Falcoln 7X for $54m (£41m).

Interestingly, Duplantis even suggested that God would use private jets to evangelize, saying, "He'd be on an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world" and also opining that "Jesus wouldn't be riding a donkey". "Think about that for a minute". He'd be in an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world.

Duplantis runs a ministry and a church in Destrehan, Louisiana, outside New Orleans.

In it, he explains that his current jet - the third his ministry has owned - no longer serves his needs.

"I want you to believe in me for a Falcon 7X", Duplantis said in his weekly video address, "This Week with Jesse".

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

"Jesse, I didn't ask you to pay for it", God apparently told him.

ABC and ‘Roseanne’: Many warning signs before racist tweet
Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the frightful statements " that have been said about him on ABC". That led the drug maker Sanofi to say on social media that "racism is not a known side effect" of their product.

"This is where I'm going, praise God".

It's maybe no surprise then that big-name prosperity gospel preachers have a thing for jets.

Now he has his sights set on a Dassault Falcon 7X, a three-engine jet with a range of 5,950 nautical miles.

"You couldn't have done that over an airline", Copeland said. If I can do it for one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper because I have my own fuel farm.

Earlier in his broadcast the evangelist reflected on his history of private jet ownership, revealing he purchased his first plane in 1994.

Duplantis is the founder of the eponymous Jesse Duplantis Ministries, which has its global headquarters in America, as well as branches in the United Kingdom and Australia.

He added: "It was one of many biggest statements the lord ever informed me - he stated 'Jesse, you wanna come up the place I am at?'" "Pray about becoming a partner to it".

"You can't manage that today". This dope-filled world - and get in a long tube with a bunch of demons.
