Duplantis builds largest home on East Bank

With nearly a year of construction under their tool belts, builders continue to chisel away at what has been deemed the largest residential property on the East Bank.

At a combined 34,986 square feet, two stories of dry wall and wooden and metal  beams come together to create this plantation-style home constructed by evangelical Christian minister Jesse Duplantis.

“According to our database, which goes back all the way to 1982, there is no single-family home larger than the one under construction at the corner of Ormond Boulevard and River Road in Destrehan,” said Judy Caillouet, senior permit coordinator for the parish’s planning and zoning department.

The home consists of 22,039 square feet of living space in addition to 12,947 square feet of accessory areas such as outdoor patios and garages.

“The home consists of 25 rooms and two double-car garages,” added Caillouet.

The first floor of the home  has two bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a breakfast room and a music parlor.

The second floor has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a fun room and a theater.

Duplantis first received attention in the Ormond subdivision when he constructed the Covenant Church, and the headquarters of  Jesse Duplantis Ministries.

Like the new house, Duplantis’ church is also considered to be one of the largest commercial properties on the East Bank, trumping CVS Pharmacy and Winn-Dixie.

The original building permit for the house was filed in December 2007. Construction began in October 2008 by G & R Custom Homes of Metairie.

    • prosperity taken from the sacrificial gifts of gullible people. so very, very sad. he will never know how much damage his greedy, materialistic mindset has done to the unsaved world that we endeavor to win.

    • Jeremiah 23 New King James Version (NKJV)
      The Branch of Righteousness
      23 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. 2 Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord.
      ‘AND’…..LUKE 6:24
      “But woe to you who are rich,For you have received your consolation.
      25 Woe to you who are full,For you shall hunger.
      Woe to you who laugh now,For you shall mourn and weep.
      26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
      For so did their fathers to the false prophets.

      ‘please’ DO NOT be deceived. God The Father is not mocked. 4 Planes? honestly do you HONESTLY believe what this greedy charlatan has said in justification to the flock about the money tat this plane will cost to purchase? this is spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ OUR Lord. WAKE UP. YOU, ARE SLEEPING.

    • What an amazing misunderstanding of scripture. The greatest challenge pastors face today is the materialistic mindset of most Christians which people like this actually encourage. He will never know the damage he has done to the cause of Christ. So very sad!

    • He’s going to hell,and all of his followers behind him. Jesus never told us to cherish worldly possessions. Because our treasures where in heaven. Duplantis is very materialistic. I wanna see em take all of that with em when he dies. nothing more than ah wolf in sheep clothing! What ah shameful act to sell God to people. And they wonder why the world is the way it is. Maybe he’ll fly his new jet to heaven from hell.

  1. Please help me to understand,with all the men,women and childen that are homeless, how is it a “blessing from God” and is justifiable that a man and his wife need a 34,986 sq ft, 25 room mansion to live in?

  2. I’m very sad of his Braggie style of preaching! This was never modeled in the Bible! It hurts the authentic Christians message of pride being a sin! I think gluttony is also a sin! He should sell the other three jets and buy it through his congregation. My daughter needs $11,000 for her Missions trip. She is taking a gap year prior to going to college! She is going to Africa for nine months. I would like her to continue raising her money! Please send money to Global Year for Jaqueline going to Africa

  3. The fact that people give money to this clown brings to mind this old saying:
    “There’s a sucker born every minute.” It’s sad to realize that so many people are so gullible.

  4. So only some ones are God’s children? I don’t think so, the bible say if you don’t work don’t eat, this people don’t work and got all the money from his followers, God is not happy with people like him!

  5. Would like to see / know (in detail) what % of hard cash he contributes to the social, emotional & spiritual good of the community as a whole? Other than his lips moving.
