Before starting his own ministry Mr. Copelad was a recording artist, so not all of his net worth is based on salary as a pastor.
6 Creflo Dollar Net Worth – Estimated $27 Million
How many pastors name is Dollar? How many pastors own a Rolls Royce? Mr. Creflo Dollar is the only one full filling these both requirements as far as we at TheRichestListed.com know.

5 E. A .Adeboye Net Worth – Estimated $39 Million
Mr. Enoch Adejare Adeboye is also from Lagos, Nigeria. How is that possible that two pastors at our to net worth ministers list are from Nigeria, and from the same city?
However, he is a faithful and clever man overseeing rapidly expanded Christian Church of God, in over 100 countries, and 14,000 branches in Nigeria alone. BTW. Mr. Adeboye has Ph.D. in mathematics, so it is easier for him to calculate his net worth which is estimated to be nearly $40 million!

Number four at our top earning pastors list is Mr. Benny Hinn. He have a solid follower numbers in both USA, and Canada. Benny owns also quite nice private jet, which is Gulfstream G4 – many corporate CEO’s would kill to get the same!

2 Bishop T.D. Jakes Net Worth – Esitimated: $147 Million
Mr. Jakes is not Mr. nobody, he has been with presidents such as Bush and Obama, and net worth is estimated to be around amazing $147 million.
That´s some serious money! However, his salary as a pastor is small compared to net worth, and money is mostly earned from sales of gospel music, movies and books. Not so also his heritage comes from Nigeria. What is the reason Nigeria is producing richest pastors in the world? There must be something special out there!

Great job Mr. Oyedepo.
