    Story highlights
    (CNN)Creflo Dollar is hoping a few folks will see fit to bless him.

    The minister, known for being a prosperity preacher at his Atlanta-area World Changers Church International, is seeking "200,000 people committed to sow $300 or more (to) help achieve our goal to purchase the G650 airplane."

    The figures were presented Friday in a nearly six-minute video on the Creflo Dollar Ministries website (the video was not viewable Friday night) and total more than $60 million needed to buy the Gulfstream G650, which goes for a reported $65 million.

    The project isn't limited to member donations, as the site states that "we are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist us in acquiring a Gulfstream G650."

    The request goes on to detail that the luxury jet will transport Pastors Creflo and Taffi Dollar and member of the Dollars' church around the globe to help them spread the gospel.

    Prosperity gospel is a theology that promises wealth and health to those who tithe 10% of their income to the church.

    The video includes parishioners, a pilot, a project manager and even the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, advocating on behalf of the pastor.

    On the video, the pastor chronicles incidents involving his current jet, which has been in service for more than three decades: The right engine went out en route to Australia, but the plane was able to safely land at its destination thanks to the experience of the pilot and crew. During another trip, mechanical failure caused the jet to skid off a runway in London while Taffi Dollar and their three daughters were aboard.

    Dollar attributed his family's safe arrival to "a grace working on that airplane, that brought my girls back home to me, you understand what I am saying?" he said from the pulpit to thunderous applause.

    Dollar said that after those incidents, he "knew that it was time to begin to believe God for a new airplane."

    The Gulfstream G650 would comfortably allow the ministry make its way around the world. It seats up to 14 passengers with berthing for six, according to gulfstream.com. The jet comes with two Rolls-Royce engines, high-speed Internet and two multichannel satellites and allows for a 2½-hour commute from New York to Los Angeles.

    "The G650 is the biggest, fastest, most luxurious, longest range and most technologically advanced jet -- by far," according to the site.

    In soliciting the donations, Dollar's site states, "We need your help to continue reaching a lost and dying world for the Lord Jesus Christ. Your love gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated."

    Attempts to contact Dollar's ministry for comment were unsuccessful.

    Religion is the greatest scam around. The best was TBN. They had a house that was " built with your generous donations"

    Always said spirituality is fine, but religion is nothing but politics.

    I worked at a post production facility years ago that cut these shows of his that would air on TBN. He came down one day to see the facility with a huge euntourage. They were pimped out in thousand dollar Shaq sized suits, covered in jewelry...the kicker was when he introduced his son, his very white son. I almost pissed myself laughing.

    But they yell the stuff in the bible real loud and repeat it a bunch of times. And then try to connect with the youngsters and the new world by making a reference to Jesus not being on Facebook. Jeee-i-zus isn't on the twit-ter. He isn't looking at his smart phone to see if Noah texted him. We need to connect, but not to the internets, but to what Jaeeee-zus was preaching. Shit like that.
