Corbett said Furtick is paying for the five-bedroom house with income from the books he has already written and will write.
Corbett said that the house is not a parsonage or a gift from Elevation “and it’s not connected to the church in any way.

Steven shares the home alongside his wife Holly and their 3 children.

Does it look regal? I really hope I look regal.”
Pastor Furtick added, before showing the team how he could make his triceps “pop” right through the center of the portrait, “I also hope this short fade/beard combo doesn’t go out of style anytime soon, haha.” Also, he was considering getting a tattoo with his name in a tribal print somewhere on his face.
