Joseph Prince Compensation
On 5 October 2008, in an interview with the Sunday Times, Prince, also the executive chairman of the church council, acknowledged that he was “well-paid” with his salary going up to $50,000 a month.
On 30 March 2009, The Straits Times reported that the church had paid one employee between $500,001 and $550,000 in its last financial year. Under the recommendations of the Code of Governance for charities then, all charities and non-profit organizations in Singapore were encouraged to disclose the salary bands of their top executives to the Commissioner of Charities.
While not confirming the identity of the employee, the church responded that its policy is to “recognize and reward key contributors to the church and Senior Pastor Prince is the main pillar of our church’s growth and revenue.”
On 15 April 2009, Deacon Matthew Kang, the church chairman, responded that it was not a public charity and did not solicit public donations, asserting that “there is absolutely no compulsion to give whether in tithes or offerings, and any giving is done out of a willing heart”, and that “every giver is appreciated and it is taken in good faith that he believes in the elected leadership and will trust them to make good decisions for the particular church he has chosen to attend, whether as a member or a visitor.”
In October 2014, a list published by the entertainment website richestlifestyle.com placed Prince as the 10th richest pastor in the world, with a reported net worth of S$6.4 million (£3.13 million).
New Creation Church denied the report, claiming that his actual net worth was “substantially lower” than the reported figure and that it regarded Prince’s net worth as “personal in nature”.
