Televangelism

noun
A practice where a Christian minister broadcasts many of their sermons on Television. Often uses its wide audience to collect donations, which are mostly used to enrich the minister, themself, instead of helping the church or its members.
 
“Thanks to televangelism, my mom sent half my college fund to the local super-church in order to ‘plant a seed’ in my future.”
Etymology : Blending of “television” and “evangelism.”
