Kenneth Copeland is a world-renowned televangelist and pastor who preaches Christianity.
Through his work and through the establishment of Kenneth Copeland Ministries, Kenneth Copeland’s net worth has risen to $760 million.
Kenneth Copeland was born in Lubbock, Texas and didn’t hail from a Christian family.
Before his conversion, he was married to Ivy Bodiford. Furthermore, he also worked as a recording artist and released a song which was titled Pledge of Love.
Once he converted to Christianity, he started focusing on preaching and spreading his beliefs. He has been strongly influenced by Oral Roberts who was a televangelist and shared the same beliefs as Copeland.
Oral Roberts founded a University named after him where Kenneth started working and thus began his relationship with Roberts.
Interestingly, before he became a pastor, he trained to be a pilot and worked in the same capacity for Oral Roberts. He continues to have a passion for flying.
Kenneth Copeland Ministries
Soon after becoming a pastor, Kenneth Copeland founded his group on ministries, which is in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Ministries basically contain Kenneth Copeland’ house and even houses other members of the family. They also contain other facilities such as those which allow for television production, audio recording, distribution of productions. The most interesting feature of the Ministries is the Kenneth Copeland Airport.
Kenneth Copeland is part of the Charismatic Movement which preaches a form of Christianity which is practiced by believing in and using special gifts. However, many people criticize this form of Christianity, but Kenneth Copeland has a wide base of followers.
Kenneth Copeland’s net worth has increased to such a large number only through his Ministries. This is because he sells audio recordings and videos in the form of CDs and DVDs, with many of his teachings being available on YouTube as well. Kenneth Copeland’s books are also quite popular.
Furthermore, the Ministries hold several conventions in various locations all over the country and these conventions are even aired on television.
Kenneth Copeland and his wife, Gloria Copeland also appear on a show called Believer’s Voice of Victory which runs every day and is used as another platform for Kenneth Copeland to spread his beliefs.

For someone who preaches the word of God, unfortunately, Kenneth Copeland has several controversies surrounding him.
Other than people criticizing his beliefs and what the preaches, many are interested in how Kenneth Copeland’s net worth has reached the amount that it has.
The United States Government exempts the payment of taxes by religious organizations however, many have pointed out how Kenneth Copeland and his family use this to their advantage by living in a huge house and using private jets for their own personal enjoyment and travelling.
Kenneth Copeland has also commented on flying with other people as flying with a bunch of demons, something else which hasn’t been received favorably by others.
However, his ministries are still one of the biggest in the country and avidly followed by many.
