Joyce Meyer: Net Worth $8 Million
Joyce Meyer is a charismatic Christian speaker and author who previously ranked as No. 17 on the list of “25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America” by TIME Magazine. In 2003, Meyer and her husband, Dave, launched a television ministry, "Enjoying Everyday Life," headquartered in the St. Louis suburb of Fenton, MS.
A mom of four kids, Meyer has received flack for her extravagant lifestyle. In 2004, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch detailed her and her husband’s assets, which were reportedly all paid for by the ministry: a $10 million jet, several homes that cost up to $2 million each, and a $107,000 silver Mercedes sedan. The ministry's $20 million headquarters is outfitted with $5.7 million worth of furniture (including a $23,000 antique marble-topped commode).
She responds to her critics by saying that she doesn’t have to apologize for being blessed.
