Dollar began developing World Changers Ministries Christian Center in 1986. He held the church’s first worship service in the cafeteria of Kathleen Mitchell Elementary School in College Park, with eight people in attendance. He later renamed the ministry as World Changers Church International (WCCI), and the congregation moved from the cafeteria to a dedicated chapel. Four services were held each Sunday, and Creflo added a weekly radio broadcast. On December 24, 1995, WCCI moved into its present location, the 8,500-seat facility known as the World Dome. The church has said that the nearly $20,000,000 World Dome was built without any bank financing. As of 2007, the congregation reported having around 30,000 members, and $70,000,000 in revenue (gross cash collections) for 2006.
In June 2012, Dollar was arrested in an alleged attack on his fifteen-year-old daughter, according to the Fayette County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Office. Dollar was accused of choking and punching his fifteen-year-old daughter, and the story was corroborated by Dollar’s other, nineteen-year-old daughter. The charges were dropped in January 2013 after he attended anger management classes. The Fayette County Police Department released details of a 911 call.
In October 2012, Creflo Dollar Ministries leased Loews Paradise Theater in The Bronx for a new church location in New York.
Dollar also speaks at conferences and writes about his gospel of wealth and his involvement in televangelism.
Dollar and his wife Taffi have five children and live in Atlanta.
