Joyce Meyer Net Worth: $8 Million
Extremely successful and popular preacher, teacher, speaker and pastor, Joyce Meyer, has an estimated net worth of $8 million. Whether you have been to one of Joyce Meyer’s conferences, seen her on TV, read one of her many books, or listen to her on the radio, chances are you have probably heard of her. She is creator of Joyce Meyer Ministries, a Christian-based non-profit organization that is financially supported by contributions from partners of the ministry and donations from people from all over the world, through different types of media.
In the mid 1970’s Meyer began leading a morning bible class at a local cafeteria and became active in the Life Christian Center. A few years later, Meyer became the church’s associate pastor. Meyer also began airing a daily 15 minute radio broadcast on a St. Louis radio station. In 1985, she resigned and founded her own ministry, which was originally named “Life in the Word”. This radio station was on six other stations broadcasting from Chicago to Kansas City. During the early 2000’s, mainstream publisher; Hachette Book Group, paid Meyer over $10 million for the rights to her blacklist catalog of independently released books. To date, Meyer has impressively written over 50 books. In 2005, Meyer was named 17th in Time Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America. Her ministry is still headquartered near the St. Louis suburb of Fenton, Missouri.
It is no doubt that Meyer was given a gift of speaking, a graceful and influential way of deliverance. Many people find her easy to follow and to relate to, maybe because Meyer herself has been though tough life situations. In fact, in many of her sermons she tells of years she was sexually, mentally, emotionally and verbally abused by her own father, then abused again in an unhealthy marriage. These anecdotes, along with words from the bible, lessons, and Meyer’s characteristically comical, yet “real” personality leave people wanting more.
