Member of the wealthy and influential echelon of religious evangelists, usually with a succession of Bible products, national TV and radio shows, best selling books. Often holds controversial cultural views (i.e. Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, James Dobson) but may also refer to those who simply have large following (i.e. Robert Schuller, Billy Graham).
Sure that televangelist is popular and has his own TV show, but he's not a megavangelist with his own corporate complex, 20,000-member church, and media empire.
