Robert Tilton Career
Tilton began his career in the late 1970s as the assistant pastor of the Greater Zion Church in Dallas, Texas. He quickly gained a reputation as a passionate and inspiring preacher. In 1981, he launched his own ministry, Robert Tilton Ministries. Through his ministry, he released his first book, “Success-N-Life,” in 1983.
He’s television program, “Success-N-Life,” quickly gained a large viewership, with millions of people tuning in each week to hear his sermons. His show featured music, interviews, and segments on topics such as finance and spiritual guidance. His preaching style was often considered unconventional, and he was known for his use of “name-it-and-claim-it” tactics, which encouraged viewers to claim miracles and blessings. He was also criticized for his business practices, such as soliciting donations from viewers and using his ministry to promote products.
In the late 1990s, he was the subject of several scandals and accusations of financial misconduct. These accusations included the misuse of church funds, misleading fundraising practices, and improper use of church assets. In 1998, Tilton donated $1.4 million to charity in order to settle a lawsuit alleging financial impropriety.
He is currently the pastor of First Family Church in Denison, Texas. He has continued to preach his “prosperity gospel” and is active in leading retreat.
Robert Tilton Success-N-Life
Tilton on Success-N-Life, regularly taught that all of life’s trials, especially poverty, were a result of sin. His message consisted mainly of impressing upon viewers the importance of making “vows”—financial commitments to Tilton’s ministry. The show also ran “testimonials” of viewers who gave to Tilton’s ministry and reportedly received miracles in return, a practice that would be used as the basis for a later lawsuit from donors charging Tilton’s ministry with fraud.
As a result of Tilton’s television success, Word of Faith Family Church grew to become a megachurch, with 8,000 members at its height. He also wrote several self-help books about financial success, including The Power to Create Wealth, God’s Laws of Success, How to Pay Your Bills Supernaturally, and How to Be Rich and Have Everything You Ever Wanted. In addition, most of his books were published in the 1980s and distributed via promotion on Success-N-Life and through the many mailings Tilton’s ministry sent his followers.
After moving to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 1996, Tilton returned to the airwaves in 1997 with a new version of Success-N-Life, buying airtime on independent television stations mainly serving inner city areas.
