When Kenneth E. Hagin married Lois Oretha Rooker on November 25, 1938, they never knew the impact their lives and ministry would have on countless people around the world. Known by many as Mom and Dad Hagin, they set an example in marriage and ministry that will live on through their “spiritual children” for generations to come.
In August 1934, Rev. Hagin was miraculously healed, raised off a deathbed by the power of God and the revelation of faith in God’s Word. Jesus appeared to Rev. Hagin eight times over the next several years in visions that changed the course of his ministry. In 1967, he began a regular radio broadcast that continues today as Rhema for Today.

Papa Kenneth E Hagin Known as the “father of the modern faith movement,” was a dynamic preacher, teacher, and prophet. His teachings and books are filled with vivid stories that show God’s power and truth working in his life and the lives of others. He is remembered not only as a great minister but as a great family man because he had his family in his heart. He was there at every milestone ready to talk, to answer and to pray. He was a man whose belly laugh filled the room at the sight of one of his grandchildren or great grandchildren.
