Rhema founder is hospitalized

BROKEN ARROW — The Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin, founder of Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, was in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit of a Tulsa hospital Monday after collapsing at home Sunday afternoon.

Hagin, 86, was in critical but stable condition, according to a family spokesman, who asked that the name of the hospital not be disclosed to respect the family’s privacy.

Hagin was part of the healing revival that swept the nation in the 1950s and ’60s. He moved from Texas to the Tulsa area in 1966.

The Hagin ministries include Rhema Bible Training Centers in 14 nations and Rhema churches in more than 110 nations, including the 8,000-member Rhema Bible Church in Broken Arrow. Its pastor is Hagin’s son, the Rev. Kenneth Hagin Jr.

The ministry sponsors the annual Campmeeting, one of Tulsa’s largest conventions, and distributes millions of books and tapes of Hagin’s teachings.
