Click for Full Image Size It was a joyous moment at the World of Life Bible Church yesterday as the Founder and President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Pastor, Ayodele Oritsejafor was presented with a private jet.

The gift was presented to him at the church headquarters in Warri on the occasion of his 40th years of ministration.

The 10-seater Bombadier/Challenger jet, marked N431CB, is an updated version of 194 series, and it is said to cost about 4.9million dollars.

The aircraft which has a range of 3,900 nautical miles, is also said to have a full enclosed lavatory and a flight attendant for additional comfort.

The luxurious and spacious cabin of the Challenger 601 is perfect to conduct meetings or simply relax. With this gift, the charismatic pastor has joined the league of men of God who have acquired a private yet.

Before him, Pastors David Oyedepo of Winners chapel, Enoch Adeboye of Redeemed Christian Church of God, and Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre, were proud owners of private jets.

When the aircraft was projected on the slide, the ecstatic congregation burst into a frenzy, congratulating one another.

The charismatic pastor who was beaming with smiles as the jet was being projected on the slide, expressed appreciation to the congregation even as he said the gift would further spur him to do more.

However, It is yet to be seen whether the acquisition of the jet by the man of God would generate criticisms like those before him.

For instance, the criticisms that greeted the purchase of a private Jet put at 30million dollars by David Oyedepo in March, 2011, are yet to completely die down. Oyedepo, who presides over the Winners Chapel, one of Africa’s largest churches, is believed to own a private collection of four aircraft.

He was said to have previously owned two Gulfstream planes and a Bombardier Challenger Aircraft.

Also, the private aircraft of the revered overseer of Nigeria’s largest congregation, The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is said to cost $30 million

Chiyoma | 11/11/2012 2:50:07 AM | This is my Papa,Congrats you deserve it even more.
Jenny | 11/11/2012 4:04:27 AM | Has anyone ask, 'what happens to the Word of God in the bible passage; Matthew 6: 19-21'

If you guys have forgotten, here's a fresh reminder:

Matthew 6:
19 "Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.
20 But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

I think that, the so-called pastors don't get this anymore, which ultimately means that, they believe in heaven on earth period!

Jane | 11/11/2012 12:10:18 PM | Are you sure is birthday gift? Who are they deceiving? Only warri branch cannot raise money to buy a jet.
He bought, but is afraid of criticism. So they make it look like a gift.

The more u look, the less you see.

Yes | 11/11/2012 12:20:10 PM | Ok may be you have forgotten that the bible says in Matt 6:33 that we should seek for the kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all other things will be added unto you. These men of great God need not get to heaven before they enjoy, They are children of the most high so they have to enjoy here on earth first. They have laboured and sowed so y not leave them to reap their harvest besides they are still working tirelessly for God. Hypocrites go and labour and serve God and when God use men to bless you then you can complain to Him that these treasures are corruptible or what verses were you quoting, people of no knowledge. Be wise don't let devil deceive you in your poverty. All faithful men of great God just go on and enjoy the blessing of your God. You deserve it men of God

Daniel | 11/11/2012 12:17:49 PMCongrats Sir! i wish you even more blessings (gifts), The blessing of God makes rich and adds no sorrow to it.All the people against pastors having jets are simply people of poverty mentality that can never see themselves having theirs, Jesus was made poor so that we be rich, Riches is a blessing but the greatest blessing (gift) is our salvation. Reply this thread
