Lakewood Church pastor John Gray called out on viral Instagram account for $5K sneakers
HOUSTON – An Instagram account is pointing out megachurch ministers’ pricey wardrobe choices.
Called PreachersNSneakers, the account was created on March 18, and has more than 121,000 followers.
The account posts are simple: a photo of a television minister and an item of clothing with its online price tag.
Many of the garments – not all shoes – cost thousands of dollars, according to the posts.
Lakewood Church Associate Pastor John Gray, recently called out for buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini, is featured in two recent posts. A pair of red sneakers he wore apparently costs $5,611 in an online auction. Another pair he’s shown wearing while preaching costs about $3,721 in an online auction.
Another post shows Hillsong teaching pastor Nathan Finochio wearing a pair of $1,100 slippers from Gucci.
Sneakers worth more than $200 are fair game, as well as $795 track pants and Gucci belts priced at $450.
The account recently asked followers to avoid harassing those mentioned in the posts.
