Top 5 Richest Pastors In The World 2017 And Their Networths (With Pictures)

Religion is one of the largest and most profitable organizations in the world. Each year, billions (with a B) of dollars are spent on church renovations, advertising, religious paraphernalia and more!
Right before communion, a collection is passed around every Sunday at mass. This is supposed to be a part of Christian “charity” for the week. But with the amount that these pastors are making, we would be hesitant to believe they need any more charity to sustain their divine lifestyles.
Just how much are pastors really making? We found 10 of the richest pastors whose pay checks will shock your sox off!

5. E. A. Adeboye: $39 Million

Enoch Adejare Adeboye began his career in preaching during a professorship at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. With his Ph.D. in mathematics, he worked as a lecturer in mathematics at the Universities of Lagos. At the time, Adeboye joined the Redeemed Christian Christian Church of God.
As an extra job, Adeboye began translating the sermons of the RCCCG Pastor and founder, Rev. Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, from Yoruba into English. When Rev Akindayomi died, Adeboye took over preaching and eventually gave up his university position to preach full time.
Going full time, Adeboye put forth a goal to put a church “within 5 minutes” of every home in the world. He was quite successful and now his teachings are broadcast in over 100 countries and he has over 14,000 branches in Nigeria alone

4. Benny Hinn: $42 Million

If you were to think “controversial American Televangelist,” Benny Hinn would come to mind. He’s best known for his regular “Miracle Crusades”— faith healing summits that are usually held in stadiums in major cities. Followers believe that if they are prayed over, they can be healed of any ailment.
Upon moving to the United States, Benny claimed that God was using him as a conduit for healing, and began holding healing services in his church. At Benny’s Miracle Crusades, he has allegedly healed attendees of blindness, deafness, cancer, AIDS, and severe physical injuries.
He’s been investigated by the United States Senate for manipulation of tax status, and his Ministry has been flagged with a “Donor Alert” by Ministry Watch several times. Regardless of his shady financial dealings he still has a solid following in both Canada and the United States

3. Chris Oyakhilome: $50 Million

Pastor Chris’s teachings, like Billy Hinn, center on “faith healing;” Chris claims he can inspire faith that will heal any illness… including AIDS. Despite his questionable teachings, his religious “business” is quite impressive. His ministry runs several different branches including the Healing School, Rhapsody of Realities, LoveWorld Books, and an NGO called the Inner-city Missions for Children.
Additionally, they own three Christian television channels: LoveWorld TV, LoveWorld SAT and LoveWorld Plus. The television programs feature the famous faith healings and miracles and have garnered over 2.5 million viewers in a single night’s event.
The Government of South Africa and Treatment Action Campaign have both criticized Chris’s claims that he can cure HIV/AIDS.
In 2016, the South African government threatened to put Chris in jail if his organization didn’t reveal what they do with the donations they receive.

2. Bishop TD Jakes $147 Million

Jakes is the bishop of The Potter’s House, a Nondenominational American megachurch with a 30,000 person congregation. He is a strong advocate of abstinence and has spoken on the subject widely ranging from Good Morning America to Dr. Phil.

1. Bishop David Oyedepo Net Worth 2017 – $150 Million

Coming in as a supposed host of the Holy Ghost with the most, Bishop David Oyedepo heads the single largest church in the world, Winners’ Chapel, which seats 50,000. As one of the main founders of the Nigerian Christian Charismatic movement, he also exerts control over churches in 45 African nations, as well as several in Dubai, the United Kingdom and the United States. Having been mentored by Adeboye, it is quite clear he took the formula of church expansion up a notch. Alongside churches, there has also been active outreach within his native continent where his ministry has aided in the development of hospitals, schools and maternity homes. As to be expected with such successes, two of his sons are following in his footsteps by heading up both the London and South African Winners’ Chapel divisions.
