People around the globe know Pastor Benny Hinn as a noted evangelist, teacher, and the author of best-selling books including Prayer That Gets Results, Lamb of God, and Good Morning, Holy Spirit. His TV program This Is Your Day! is among the world’s most-watched Christian programs, seen daily in 200 countries.
But there is much more to the story of the man and ministry now impacting the world with the life-saving and miracle-working message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Benny Hinn was born on December 3, 1952, in the port city of Jaffa (part of modern Tel Aviv), Israel, where his family had set up residence as immigrants to Palestine from Greece. In 1968, not long after the Six-Day War, he immigrated with his family to Canada.
In February 1972 Benny Hinn’s life took on an entirely new meaning when he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ as high school friends prayed with him. Soon afterward, he was called to minister the Gospel.
Benny Hinn is the proud parent of three daughters and a son and grandfather to two grandsons.
The ministry-owned television studio is located in Aliso Viejo, California. The corporate headquarters for Benny Hinn Ministries / World Healing Center Church is located in Grapevine, Texas.

Through Holy Spirit Miracle Crusades, Training for Ministry Conferences, TV broadcasts, the Internet, printed page, and audio-video recordings, this evangelist’s straightforward and uncompromising message of God’s love has inspired hundreds of millions to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Taking the Saving and Healing Power of Jesus Christ to the World
Today, Pastor Benny continues to take the message of God’s saving and healing power to the world. Millions attend his Holy Spirit Miracle Crusades each year. Memorable crusades have included audiences up to 7.3 million (in three services) in India, the largest healing service in recorded history. During recent years, he has been welcomed during his travels by kings, prime ministers, and heads of state, yet his message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ continues to be fervent, motivating him to “go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
After more than 30 years in ministry as statesman, author, broadcaster, bridge builder, and evangelist, Pastor Benny Hinn remains committed, more than ever, to preaching the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching the unchanging Word of God, and expecting the mighty and miraculous power of the Holy Spirit!
