Joyce Meyer - Biography, Criticism of Meyer’s Ministries

church ministry husband local

Joyce Meyer was born in 1943 in Missouri. After she was born, her father enlisted in the Army. Meyer has reported that her father began to molest her following his return. Meyer shares her experience in meetings. Following her graduation from high school, Meyer married a part-time car salesman. Her new husband cheated on her frequently and encouraged her to steal money from her employer. Their marriage ended five years later. Meyer met her current husband, Dave Meyer who worked as an engineering draftsman at a local bar. Meyer has stated that she heard God call her name, while driving one day. This is said to have occured after intense praying. Meyer had been born again in her late teens, but her lack of happiness caused her to become more involved in prayer. Following her encounter with “the voice of God,” Meyer spoke in tongues while out bowling at a local alley. Soon after, Meyer began to lead a Bible class and became involved in Life Christian Church. Meyer would become the associate pastor a few years later. The church became one of the top churches in Fenton because of Meyer’s popularity. Meyer began to air a daily radio show on a local station. Meyer resigned from her position in the Life Christian Church in 1985. She founded her own ministry and began broadcasting her radio program on several stations in the Midwest. Eight years later, Meyer’s husband suggested they begin a television ministry. It aired initially in Chicago and cable station BET. Her program reaches 3 billion people today.

Criticism of Meyer’s Ministries

Joyce Meyer has been criticized for leading an expensive lifestyle. Meyer has dismissed such claims and says that she doesn’t feel the need to defend herself. She has stated that she doesn’t need to apologize for “being blessed.” A number of her church’s expenditures have been made to purchase several homes for Meyer and her family. The church also pays for all of the utilities, landscaping and routine maintenance of the properties. Meyer and her husband live in a huge home, costing an estimated $2 million. The property includes an opulent fountain, private golf course, swimming pool, poolhouse, and an air-conditioned garage. Meyer has stated that she does not have the time to take care of the maintenance of the property due to her busy schedule. Joyce and Dave Meyer have also purchased a number of items that are currently held in a trust to guard against financial problems within their ministry. Included in these purchases are a lakefront home costing an estimated half-million, a $100,000 Mercedes, and a home for Joyce’s parents. Joyce Meyer Ministries publishes their financial reports annually. The ministry also submits to a voluntary annual audit.

people that donate to her ministry do so of there own free will, if she wants to dress nice, so be it, if she wants to live nice, so be it, I personally don't care, she has reached me with the message of Jesus Christ like no other, nothing else matters, through Her ministry many people have had there eyes opened to the WORD. She has studied and studied and studied, why can't she enjoy the fruits of her labors for her conviction to our Savior

She does a service. She should get paid. How else is she going to make a living if she is devoted to preaching the word of god. I'm not even religious - in fact, I'm an agnostic, and I still believe she should be entitled to an income from what she does. As long as she is honest to the congretation that their money is what funds her lifestyle.

when others are successful in there business we are no so quick to judge them and how they live their lifestyle. joyce meyer also contributes a lot to the less fortunate world wide. should she live so abundantly when she is a chritian? i don't know, but she is dedicated to her profession, to her God and to the easing the suffering of many. she has a right to her income even if it is substantial. she brings in the people therefore she brings in the money. why do we not publish how much money all the big wigs from banks and other major corporations spend their money. do they travel around the world to feed the starving or to provide safe havens for young girls pulled into the sex trade? how many homes do they have? do they offer a volountary audit once a year? i'm betting they dread the very thought of an audit. i realize there have been scams before by so called chritian speakers just as there have been countless scams from other people in charge of overwhelming amounts of money but that doesn't mean all christian leaders need to be under a magnifying glass. you know many chritians are actually spirit filled and spirit lead. why not let the government decide if she is honest with her money and go pick on these bankers who robbed the honest tax payers of their money. go publish what their homes look like or how many homes they have and stop worrying about if she flew on a private jet or bought a home for her parents. quite frankly, any person with her amount of money that didn't look after their own parents...now that would be questionable!

Dear Joyce, I watch your programs 2 times a nite. I am going through a period of time of which I am trying to find myself. I was going south for the winter for the past three years, but with my folks & animals aging. I must stay in close to the family. I am doing my best to try & keep a good attitude. Please pray for me as I deal with Bi-Polar, am not liking the medications they have me on, but I know enough not to quit taking them because it alters my thought process. But I need help with over weight problem since I quit cigarettes. Thank you & God Bless, Linda

I am no longer donating since her 10,000.000. million jet should have bougth 100,000.00 water wells and almost all in Africa would have fresh water, so please don't tell me god would not have done that first.....she and Dave lost there way.

I agree that people who work hard should benefit financially. I also agree that Joyce Meyer reaches a lot of people around the world through prison ministries, building orphanages and hospitals, digging wells and helping areas that were devastated by mother nature. Yes, she should enjoy the royalties of her book sale. However, I don't believe that someone who gets $8 million per month in donations needs a 10,000 square foot $2 million home, a $100,000 Mercedes, and homes for her four children totalling in the millions. Couldn't she had had built a 5,000 sq.ft. home or a 3,000 sq.ft. home(there's only her and her husband for pete's sake!) for less than $1M. Can't her husband drive a $40,000 car? And why does her ministry need to pay for the homes of her children? I enjoy Joyce Meyer. I have listened to numerous DVDs and CDs, read many of her books and read the magazine but it makes me uncomfortable that they were so extravagant with the ministry funds for themselves. A good steward would have bought a decent house and car rather than luxurious ones. Her children should have stayed living with her until they saved up enough money (they all work for her) to purchase their own home (like I did). And don't get me started on the prices of some of the furniture bought for their offices in Fenton. $17,000 for a bookcase! I too can afford to spend more on home, car and clothing, but I chose to buy a smaller condo, a used card and no designer clothes. Oh, I almost forget the $10 million private jet. Geez!

Prov 22:4 A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor. THE BIBLE CLEARLY STATES GOD WANTS US TO BE BLESSED!!! It is her decision to live that way. Who are we to judge Matt 7:1"Judge not that ye be not judged." the bible also says don't store up your treasures on earth, However she will make her own decisions and god will judge her accordingly

If people were good at removing LOGS in their own eyes before seeing SPAKE in other peoples' eyes then, all this scenario of judging others could not be happening but all in all the bigger the price one pays for something the bigger the reward. So JOYCE, reap what you saw softly and quietly.People will always talk so do not mind them.More blessings from me Charles in Kenya. Africa.

I am astounded by the number of people, including ministers, who are criticizing Joyce Meyer and her ministry, especially for her gain in assets since her ministry began. Those critics have apparently not read the book of Job which applauds his wealth and lifestyle because of his faithfulness to God. One day, when the sons of God presented themselves to Him, Satan commented on Job's wealth and holdings and the blessings of God for the work of Job's hands. Satan taunted God,saying Job would curse him if all was taken from him. Because of this God gave Satan the power to cause Job to lose everything, but not touch his person. Job was put in an untenable position, lost everything -- except his faith.
Joyce Myer's critics need to read the book of Job and learn that wealth is not anti-God.

I too was sexually abused, and verbally, physically and emotionally abused. I grew up to marry an abusive man and didn't even no he was abusive or that I was being treated badly.
I have an amazing story but there is so much that I'm too scared to tell anyone with the fear of being judged. I'd love to tell u Joyce as I no I could trust u, it's to give God honouring, but I've tried to tell people so that the glory goes to God, but instead I got judged, put down, disowned and made to feel like a filthy rag. If u would like to hear my story I'd love to tell u, but only if u would like to. I want the world to no what God did for me and how much he has done to transform me.

Hi Joyce u have an amazing story of how u rose above the sexual abuse. U could of stayed a victim but u didn't. The Lord has blessed u because of yr faithfulness and loyalty to him for saving the lived of many lost souls by preaching his word. Yr heavenly father owns heaven and earth and everything in it. If he is yr father and our father also then we can also own many things and live a similar way, all we have to do is ask our heavenly father in Jesus name. But too many do not ask in prayer and they do not honour God in the same way u do. So if that's how they want it then they mustn't b envious of u. God says that if we put him first above all people and things, and keep all of his ways, commandments and statuesm, that he will give us the desires of our heart. So don't winge and complain, start honouring God.
