2020 has been a massive year for Pastor Mike Todd of Transformation Church. The release of his book Relationship Goals and gaining an enormous amount of social media clout has evidently brought in a boatload of money for Transformation Church. After the church paid off a $10 million mortgage on its current facility in 6 months, Transformation Church made another massive real estate investment. This time the investment is for an actual investment. Transformation Church purchased an entire mall and its surrounding buildings for $20 million. Transformation Church will now be the retail landlord for over 35 storefronts.
On the surface, this seems innocuous, but the church does not have the best history when it comes to having other flows of income rather than its faithful parishioners whether they be state funded churches or television income. This is a good way to amass a massive stockpile while skirting taxes (property and rental income) for the real beneficiaries like Mike Todd. Similar to how Elevation Church owns the mansion that Steven Furtick lives in. Perhaps God intended the churches to rely on regular joyful giving in the same way the congregation of Israel relied on manna in the desert.
While it’s a mall today, it could very well be a private jet tomorrow, at this trajectory. And those that insist that Mike Todd is not a Prosperity preacher will have fewer excuses for when Mike Todd goes flying around the world in luxury like Creflo Dollar in the years to come.
Call to action
Evangelical Dark Web was perhaps the first to warn about about Mike Todd being Prosperity Gospel here. We could only do that because of reader requests. The work that we do in Discernment is important and makes a difference in providing information on false teachers prior to them becoming as famous as Joel Osteen.
