Duplantis’ books range from $3 to $70, and you can buy them online or off his official website. He has also released audiobooks and mini book sets, which are available online.
Earning Through Social Media
It can be estimated that Jesse Duplantis earns roughly $5,000 through his YouTube channel, Jesse Duplantis Ministries. He also has Christian Ministries and Christian Bible channels on the website, which have reportedly been earning him thousands every year.
Duplantis and his organization helped Hurricane Katrina victims through the Covenant Compassion Center, back in 2005. They provided hundreds of people with food, shelter, and clothing, and also provided financial aid to those were displaced.
Jesse Duplantis lives in a custom built 35,000 square ft. plantation-style mansion in Louisiana, which was constructed in 2009. The huge home cost an estimated $3.0 million to build and is worth roughly $6.0 million. The home is located on East Bank, and it is the largest home in the area.
According to the Herald-Guide, the home is plantation style, with more than 20,000 sq.ft. of living area, and an additional 12,000 sq.ft. of patio, garden, garage, yard etc.
This 25-room home comes complete with two double-door car garages, a games room, and a theater. The first floor itself has a two bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a breakfast room, a kitchen, a dining room and a music parlor.
The massive mansion was built by G&R Custom Homes.
Jesse Duplantis owns three private jets, and in recent news, he has asked his followers to donate $54.0 million to buy a brand new one; a Dassault Falcon 7X Jet. Why? So that he can do Lord’s work without stopping for fuel.
The other jets he owns need a pit stop to fill up, and Duplantis claims he “has been told by God” that he shouldn’t pay for it, but “bleed” for it, which means to ask the congregation to give the funds for the jet.
He then went ahead and urged his followers to raise the funds he needs to buy a shiny new plane which will help him preach in comfort.
Since then, people have questioned why pastors and evangelists need a private jet, when they can travel on a commercial plane like many others. Duplantis and fellow minister Kenneth Copeland believe that the commercial planes are “full of demons.”
The explanation given for only traveling by private jet is also because Duplantis had to “unbuckle his seat belt to speak to God.”
To which Copeland added, “You couldn’t have done that over an airline, stand up and say, ‘What did you say, Lord?”
Duplantis also explained his reasoning for the extravagant aircraft. “I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey,” he said, adding, “He’d be in an airplane flying all over the world.”
Televangelist Jesse Duplantis is hoping to take the word of Jesus to new heights with help of a $54 million private jet. @tonydokoupil has the story. https://t.co/V90d85CT1P pic.twitter.com/MW8WJM2VMD
