John Charles Hagee is a televangelist and preacher from the United States. His ministry is broadcast in the United States and Canada, and he is the founder of John Hagee Ministries. Hagee is also the founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel, a Christian-Zionist group. Hagee is a political figure who is well-known for his anti-Israel rhetoric. His statements against the Catholic Church, Jews, and Islam and his support of the blood moon prophecy have sparked debate.
John Hagee was born on April 12, 1940, in Texas, United States of America, to Rev. William Bythel Hagee and Vada Mildred Swick. In 1966, he obtained his Master's Degree in Educational Administration. He completed his theological training in Dallas.
He received two honorary doctorates in 1989 from Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma, where he later served on the Board of Regents until 2008, and in 2005 from Netanya Academic College in Israel. He is the only non-Jew to receive the Humanitarian Award of the Year from the San Antonio B'nai B'rith Council. He was awarded the Zionist Organization of America's Israel Award, an award given by the Jewish community of Dallas, Texas, by then U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick. He was honored with the ZOA Service Award by Texas Governor Mark White.
He is the founder and Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Church, a non-denominational church with many followers in San Antonio, Texas. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of his non-profit corporation, Global Evangelism Television (GETV).
He is the President and CEO of John Hagee Ministries, which telecasts his national radio and television ministry on 10 TV networks to more than 150 million households. Hagee is the founder and National Chairman of the Christian-Zionist organization Christians United for Israel, which was established on February 7, 2006.
John Hagee has caused a lot of controversy in his lifetime. His religious views and comments on other religions such as Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, and homosexuality were highly offensive and controversial.
He married Marthe in 1960, divorced her, and married Diana Castro on 12 April 1976. He has three children from Diana. John Hagee has authored more than 30 best-selling books, many of which have sold quickly and made entries into the list of best-sellers. He is also a Southern Gospel recording artist.
Many religious organizations consider that John Hagee has vested interests in the incorporation of GETV, as three out of the four directors from the Board of Directors are his direct family members: John Hagee, Diana Hagee, and his son Mathew.
In 2001, his organization filed revenues of $18.3 million with the IRS. He owns a ranch in Texas with a sprawling 8,000 acres. He also owns a 5,275 square foot mansion with six luxurious bedrooms in a posh area. The house is worth $700,000.
Among the many controversies that John is said to be involved in, he was once in the media for attacking women who use God's name while making love. John expressed his disgust at girls and women who mention God's name, calling it a "filthy" and "one of the most sinful" ways one can use the Lord's name. If it had been up to John, he would have made sure each one of them had seen the gates of the prison and not been allowed to mingle with the general public, as he believes this to be an improper use of God's name. On this matter, John Hagee Ministries came out to defend the Pastor, saying that it was mere propaganda and fabrication written by websites that seek attention and intended to humor the public.
When the Ebola outbreak occurred in 2014, John became embroiled in another controversy, claiming that it was God's judgment on the people of the earth. According to John's statements, God's wrath was due to then-President Barack Obama, who was not as supportive of the people of Israel as he should have been.
The Ebola outbreak affected the western part of Africa and claimed several lives. John made clear his opinion on the then-president. While addressing the Zionist Organization of America after being awarded for their continued support to Israel, John claimed that the executive branch of the American government was in the hands of an individual who did not have much regard for the Semitic community in the entire American history.
As previously mentioned, John is the CEO of John Hagee Ministries. This ministry is devoted to fulfilling Jesus Christ's command to go into the world and make disciples of all people by saving the lost and empowering and encouraging followers of Christ. John's wife, Diana, is also actively involved in the ministry, playing a pivotal role. She coordinates events of great importance to the ministry, the church, schools, and Christians United for Israel. John and Diana's son, Matt, and his wife, Kendal Hagee, are among the 20,000 members pastored by John. The two also play critical roles, with Matt being an executive pastor in the church and the sixth generation to carry the family mantle.
Concerning divorce, John once remarked in one of his sermons that it is against Christian belief to get a divorce or an abortion. Contrary to the Pastor's take on divorce matters, John himself got divorced from his first wife, Martha Downing. John's divorce contributed to his many controversies and the incident was quite scandalous. His divorce acted as a destined path, as he disassociated himself from the Trinity Church and formed the Cornerstone Church.
The controversial Pastor is an active member of social media platforms, with a massive following of around 300,000 followers on Twitter alone and more than 7,000 tweets on the same platform. You can find John on his verified Twitter account with the handle @PastorJohnHagee. On Twitter, John portrays Christian values of spreading the Gospel to lead the lost to Christ. In a recent tweet, John expressed that the thing that matters most in this life and the next is God's approval.
