A notorious ghostwriter owns this home. James Eugene "Gene" Ewing is a former tent minister who founded St. Matthew's Churches, a primarily mail-based ministry with churches in Texas and New York. The ministry sends out pseudo-personalized letters to targeted individuals soliciting donations. In 2007, Ewing's ministry reportedly took in around $70 million.
For a large fee, Ewing also writes these "personalized" letters for televangelists. Among the many that have utilized his services are Oral Roberts, Don Stewart, WV Grant, and Rex Humbard.
Ewing paid $3.3 million for this 6,200 sq. foot house in 2001.
