Dr. William D. Hinn has been involved in ministry since 1973 and has traveled extensively in the United States and overseas where God has used him to help establish and build churches in North America, Central and South America, the Caribbean, South Africa, and Spain. His humanitarian efforts have extended well beyond local church walls through his support of missionary work around the world, including the recently established William D. Hinn birthing center in East Timor, Southeast Asia.
Dr. Hinn holds a Masters Degree and three doctorates from different colleges including a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from Tabernacle Bible College and Seminary in Tampa, Florida, and is also a registered member of the Joint College of Bishops with recognition from the Church of England. His teachings on The Father, the Kingdom of God, and Church Government are in demand at conferences worldwide by pastors and their congregations who look to him for guidance both as a spiritual father and Biblical scholar.
In 1988 Dr. Hinn established Resurrection Life Center in Central Florida, and Ark of Covenant International – a global ministerial network – then later established Kingdom One Ministries as the umbrella ministry for his vision to provide ordination, education and fellowship to pastors and ministers worldwide.
In March 2000, the ministry expanded to Southern California and established Resurrection Life Center International that remains a strong and active family church. Then in 2012 the ministry expanded further with the establishing of Father’s Gate Family Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where by God’s grace, Dr. Hinn is being used mightily in unveiling the truth of God’s word, prophecy and healing for the edification of the body of Christ.
He and his wife Teresa, and their children have abandoned their lives to knowing the Lord and serving His people; the vision of his heart is “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death;” “…pressing toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 3:10 & 14)
