Despite public criticism, it looks like Creflo Dollar will get his private jet after all. In a statement released by Creflo Dollar Ministries, it was clearly stated that the organization will acquire the multimillion dollar Gulfstream G650 jet as a necessity to spreading the word of Jesus. Initially Creflo Dollar received heavy scrutiny due to the fact his organization tried to raise the necessary $65 million to purchase the jet via a crowd funding campaign. Below is the segment from the official statement that basically says, WE NEED THIS JET!
“It is our belief that this ministry is called to serve people globally — to literally change the world according to the Great Commission — and our infrastructure and operational plan reflect the worldwide nature of that assignment. Our pastors share the gospel of Jesus more than 300 times per year — in churches, arenas, venues, convention centers, stadiums and other facilities across the entire planet — and are committed to aggressive travel schedules that cannot be fulfilled via any means other than private aircraft,” said the WCCI board in a statement posted on the website of Creflo Dollar Ministries.
“A long-range, high-speed, intercontinental jet aircraft is a tool that is necessary in order to fulfill the mission of the ministry. 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,”
There you have it. Whether the public likes it or not, Creflo Dollar and his organization has their sites set on the friendly skies.
