Fake News! Furtick Not Getting Paid to Attend Lakewood Church

(SGN) — There have been a number of online rumors that Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church was offered $110 million dollars to come to Lakewood Church in Houston.  But according to new sources, not only isn’t Furtick getting paid that NFL-level salary – he’s not even on the church’s schedule!

Furtick recently posted a video to his social media accounts debunking the rumor.

“Something my mom taught me since I was a little boy: always consider the source. None of that is true. I am not leaving Elevation Church.”

And the source of the rumor is from a satirical website “The Babylon Bee.”  The website’s tagline is:  “Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire.”
