Televangelist Creflo Dollar has called on his followers to participate in a new fundraising project to "change the world and reach a billion souls."

Dollar took to his Creflo Dollar Ministries website this week to promote his new 2020 Vision Partner Project, asking: "How much would you give to change the world and reach a billion souls? For less than $1 a day, $5 a week, or $20 a month, you can impact billions of people!"

"How? By becoming a 2020 Vision Partner with us. This is not a new partnership program. However, it is our new emphasis on partnership. God can bless the inside walls of the Church when we're willing to go outside those walls," the website continues.

"He needs people willing to 'go ye' into all the world and share this glorious Gospel of grace! When you do, you no longer have to go door-to-door knocking to win souls—now you can get in the house! It's so important that the Gospel of grace is preached worldwide," the website adds.

As The Christian Post reports, although the new Vision Partner Project does not state explicitly how donations will be used to "reach a billion souls," it is possible that the new fundraising project is angled at expanding Dollar's successful media ministry.

Dollar thanks fundraising participants "for your commitment to partner with me to spread the Gospel of grace to the world."

Dollar previously received criticism earlier this year for asking his followers to donate money so he may purchase a new $65 million luxury jet so he may use it as "a tool that is necessary in order to fulfill the mission of the ministry," according to a statement by the World Changers Church International.
