These 19 millionaire – and one billionaire – pastors have a lot for which to thank the good Lord. Indeed, they live in luxury mansions, own private jets, drive expensive cars, and they do it all by the grace of God. Some head international megachurches where the offering basket brings in millions, while others have turned a televangelical talent into a multi-million-dollar media empire. Here, then, we meet the men and women of God whose riches have reached truly biblical proportions.

Before he ever found God, Chris Okotie found fame as an 1980s pop sensation. In 1987 the unlikely preacher swapped the stage for the pulpit and set up the Household of God Church in Lago, Nigeria. Pentecostal Okotie now has an estimated $3 million in the bank and owns a fleet of expensive cars.
