Louisiana televangelist Jesse Duplantis asks for donations to buy $54 million jet

A Louisiana preacher is making headlines for asking his followers to help fund an extravagant purchase: a $54 million private jet.

Specifically, God told Duplantis he needs a Dassault Falcon 7X, a three-engine private jet capable of carrying 12 to 16 passengers at speeds up to 700 miles per hour. "He would be in an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world". In it, he says his current jet (the third his ministry has owned) no longer serves his needs.

He told his followers if Jesus sets his foot on Earth today, he wouldn't be riding on a donkey, but instead, "He'd be in an airplane preaching the gospel flying all over the world".

The fiery reaction comes in response to a video, posted May 21, in which Duplantis explains his need for a new jet. And all of them have been paid for by his Jesse Duplantis Ministry.

"All it's going to do is touch people, it's gonna reach people, it's gonna change lives one soul at a time".

He says he could fly cheaper because he has his own fuel farm and he can avoid refueling stops.

"I used them - and just burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ".


Duplantis not the first minister to preach the gospel of private flight.

He and Duplantis defended their use of private jets in a widely shared - and mocked - YouTube video.

"A table setting for a meal sits inside a Falcon 7X business jet, manufactured by Dassault Aviation SA".

"Oral [Roberts] used to fly airlines", Copeland said. Copeland said their fame made it hard to travel with the public because of the number of people who would come up and ask for prayers. It's going to reach people.

A Louisiana-based televangelist is asking his followers to donate money for a $54 million jet that can "go anywhere in the world in one stop", The Times-Picayune reported.

"If you pray about it, I believe God will speak to you". "And I said, 'What do you mean?'" "You get in a long tube with a bunch of demons, and it's deadly".
