Retreat offers high-tech faith
FORT MILL, SC. (AP) -Vacationers seeking a religious retreat can forgo the traditional campground revivals for Heritage USA, Jim Bakker’s high-tech getaway with computerized “wave pools" and sermons via satellite.
The multimillion dollar hub of activity for Bakker’s PTL ministry lies in the heart of South Carolina’s mill country, next to this small town just south of the North Carolina line and marked only by modest signs. Spokeswoman Joan Lacey says the PTL logo stands for “People That Love.”
Visitors — more than 4 million during 1984 according to PTL — manage to find their way to Heritage USA
Bakker’s seven-year-old brainchild is a combination church headquarters, suburb, convention facility, broadcast center and playground, stretching out over 2,200 carefully landscaped acres.
Heritage USA has developed against an intermittent backdrop of controversy over Bakker’s finances. He and his wife, Tammy Faye, came under fire from the news media last year following disclosures they purchased a California home and two expensive cars during a time of financial crisis for PTL.
The Charlotte Observer, which has reported extensively on Bakker since he launched PTL in that North Carolina city, described the Bakkers editorially as “pre-eminent evangelists of Christian materialism.”
Several years ago, Bakker underwent a Federal Communications Commission investigation of allegations that PTL solicited money for specific purposes — and spent the money for other things.
But Bakker weathers the storms, denies most interview requests and prefers to make his case on television. Through PTL programming, the 45-year-old preacher asks people to join his ministry and contribute to its growth.
Bakker wants to build at entire community at Heritage USA with a permanent population of 50,000.
When completed, it is to include the water park with state-of-the-art wave pool, a large cafeteria, the Heritage Grand Hotel, a steam train, Billy Graham’s boyhood home (moved from Charlotte), restaurants, timesharing vacation chalets and a television studio-church facility-audi tori urn that seats 24,000.
