  • Louisiana televangelist seeks donations for $54M private jet: report

Destrehan, La. - A televangelist in Louisiana with viewers across the globe is asking his followers for money so he can buy a $54 million private jet.

"You know I've owned three different jets in my life and used them and used them and just burning them up for the Lord", he says in the video.

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 can fly around the world on his current jet, but he can't do it without stopping to refuel.

If Jesus was to descend from heaven and physically set foot on 21st century earth, prosperity gospel televangelist Jesse Duplantis told his followers, the Redeemer would probably pass on riding on the back of a donkey: "He'd be on an airplane preaching the Gospel all over the world".

He has defended his use of private planes in the past in what the Washington Post called a "widely mocked" video in which he and another preacher said, among other things, that you can't speak openly to God on a commercial airliner. And all of them have been paid for by his Jesse Duplantis Ministry. "Now some people believe that preachers shouldn't have jets".

Who was the last head coach to win a Calder Cup-Stanley Cup double? He has three points (1-2-3) in 12 playoff games. Ditto Nicklas Backstrom , 30, who has been Ovechkin's Washington teammate for 11 of those seasons.

He says he could fly cheaper because he has his own fuel farm and he can avoid refueling stops. "Now people say, 'My Lord, can't you go with this one?' Yes, but I can't go with one stop".

Duplantis already has three planes, which he showcases in the video.

Duplantis says he preached his first sermon in 1976, launched his ministry full-time in 1978, and released his first religious music album in 1979.

Flying a Falcon 7X instead of the Falcon 50, he said, will allow the ministry to save on gas because it can fly further and won't have to rely on worldwide airport fuel.

"We don't hide nothing whatsoever at all", he says in the video.

"He said, 'Jesse, you wanna come up where I'm at?' " according to Duplantis. "It's gonna reach people. This dope-filled world. And get in a long tube with a bunch of demons".
