First class seats – Greek resorts – a penthouse suite in a Miami hotel and gambling in Las Vegas – it’s not the typical life of a church leader.
Last night a photo of Destiny Church leader Brian Tamaki was uploaded to Facebook by an onlooker who saw him gambling.
‘What does Brian Tamaki of Destiny’s church do when waiting in Las Vegas airport? He plays the pokies!’
While leaders of other religions eschew the trappings of luxury, Destiny Church founder Bishop Brian Tamaki – whose congregants pay tithes to the church – and his wife Hannah have lorded their month-long holiday on social media.
Their trip included a luxury stay in Greece for two and a half weeks with the family – followed by Dubai and then on to Miami – Atlanta – Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
The couple posted a slew of bragging photos from desirable locations around the globe – boasting of having taken 14 flights – at least two of which – including their initial long-haul flight out of New Zealand – were business class. On another Emirates flight – they were upgraded to first class.
