Who Is Rod Parsley
Popular to the world of television Rod Parsley is known as a “televangelist”, an evangelical preacher who appears regularly on television to preach and appeal for funds. He is the a senior pastor of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio and through his books and TV appearances has built a net worth of $2.5 million dollars, as of 2020. Often facing criticism about his alleged lavish lifestyle.
Rod was born January 13, 1957 in Cleveland, Ohio. He studied at former Circleville Bible College (now known as Ohio Christian University). He got his Bachelor of Arts with a Ministry degree. His career really began to get started when he met Lester Sumrall, a famous televangelist who promoted his books and tapes in a similar way Rod Parsley does today.
In fact, Lester Sumrall really mentored Rod Parsley both with his spiritual works and also how to make a career out of spreading the word of the gospel. The two traveled and preached together, selling many books in the process.
Rod Parsley married his girlfriend Joni in 1986. She gave birth to their two kids, a son named Austin and a daughter named Ashton. Parsley serves as a senior pastor of a large Pentecostal church called the “World Harvest Church”. He’s also an author of several well-selling books, such as Silent No More, Culturally Incorrect, The Cross: One Man. One Tree. One Friday, Living on Our Heads: Righting an Upside-Down Culture, Be Made Whole and The Finale: One World, One Ruler, One Reign. Which is just the tip of the ice berg, Parsley has written at least another forty titles.
Over the years Rod Parsley has picked up his fair share of criticism, as many pastors and televangelist do. One instance involved the request for a new airplane for traveling between churches. While Parsley made sure to resist the criticism this causes stating plainly that it was not a luxury, rather a necessity for his work, it still caused people to allege that he is mismanaging church funds and living a lavish lifestyle. In the end it seems that based on the fact that airplane they had was old and had traveled over 500,000 miles, and the new plane requested would actually be second hand, Parsley likely wasn’t acting out of order. Instead it’s more of the case that televangelists are held to higher standards than most.
