Creflo Dollar’s Church Members to Contribute $234K to Church Shooting Victim’s Family of Greg McDowell
When we watched Creflo Dollar address his congregation the day of the church shooting of victim Greg McDowell, he stated he would provide whatever the McDowell family needed. He stated ‘we’ will give them whatever they need because they have lost a husband and a father.
We assumed that ‘we’ meant he and his wife Taffi Dollar. What he really meant was ‘we’ as in the church will give to the family.
So the news is: Creflo Dollar asked his members to donate $234K to church shooting victim’s family.
Dollar challenged church members to give as they left the College Park church, to make online donations and to give to a special fund the church has set up at a bank.
“The goal is $234,000,” Dollar said, telling the congregation he wanted to raise that amount by the end of the day Sunday. “We want to completely eradicate all debts in their lives … house, cars, everything. Let’s now show the world the power of a megachurch.”
One member told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution they expected Dollar’s response to the tragedy.
Mike Howard said Dollar’s actions, and the acquiescence of the church members was just part of belonging to the church.
“The McDowells are family,” Howard said. “We take care of each other here.”
Contributions can be made through the World Changers online, under the Gregory McDowell Family Fund.
An account has been established at Regions Bank for donations in the name of the McDowell Family, Dollar said.
