August 20, 1917 - September 19, 2003 He is an influential American Pentecostal preacher. Kenneth Erwin Hagin is often referred to as the "father" (or "granddaddy") of the "Word of Faith" movement.
Many of his followers often refer to him affectionately as "Dad Hagin" or "Brother Hagin". Hagin never received any formal theological training, although he received an honorary doctorate from Oral Roberts University in the 1970s.
Kenneth E. Hagin was born in McKinney, Texas, the son of Lillie Viola Drake Hagin and Jess Hagin. He was so small and lifeless that the doctor thought that he was stillborn.
He was married to Oretha Rooker. They had two children, a son named Kenneth Wayne Hagin, who is presently the pastor of Rhema Bible Church and President of Kenneth Hagin Ministries, and a daughter named Patricia Harrison.
She is the widow of the late Doyle "Buddy' Harrison and is the owner and publisher of Harrison House, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Amidst all the controversy throughout Kenneth Hagin's life, it was often commented on by others that his love for people was very evident.
Kenneth Hagin took great joy in family and friends and regardless of the tremendous amount of opposition he faced, there was no denying his loyalty to love those around him.
Prior to his death, many of his followers at Kenneth Hagin Ministries noticed a change in direction he took while preaching. Rather than teaching the message that made his name so well known referred to as "the Faith Message," he began teaching on the love Christians should have for one another.
Hagin died five days after lapsing into a coma due to a heart arrhythmia in September 2003.
According to Hagin's testimony, he was sickly as a child, suffering from a deformed heart and what was believed to be an incurable blood disease.
He was not expected to live and became bedfast at age 15. In April 1933 during a dramatic conversion experience, Kenneth Hagin reported dying three times in 10 minutes, each time seeing the horrors of hell and then returning to life.
He also claimed that he was raised from a deathbed in 1934 by "the revelation of faith in God's Word".
Two years later he preached his first sermon as the pastor of a small community church in Roland, Texas, 9 miles from McKinney.
"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith".
During the next twelve years he pastored five Assemblies of God churches in Texas: in the cities of Tom Bean, Farmersville (twice), Talco, Greggton, and Van.

He was also a part of the Voice of Healing Revival in the U.S. in the 40s and 50s together with Oral Roberts, Gordon Lindsay and T.L.Osborn.
In 1963, Kenneth E. Hagin Evangelistic Association was incorporated, and the offices of the ministry moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1966. That same year, he taught for the first time on radio — on KSKY in Dallas.
