Moving Forward With God’s Bigger Plan
No Sign of Slowing Down
There’s no slowing down at Kenneth Hagin Ministries. At Campmeeting 2010 Kenneth W. Hagin declared, “Stay with me. I’ll lead you to the mountaintop. I’m not going to be behind you. And you’re going to have to run to stay up with me.”
No one understands these words better than the ministry crusade team.
This year Living Faith Crusades and special meetings in the U.S. were held in:
» North Miami Beach, Florida
» Alma, Arkansas
» Topeka, Kansas
» Sterling Heights, Michigan
» Glenwood Springs, Colorado
» Seekonk, Massachusetts
» Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania
» Nashville, Tennessee
» Lancaster, Pennsylvania
» College Park, Georgia

4 Cities, 8 Days , 3 Time Zones
Shortly before Campmeeting 2010, the Hagins held Living Faith Crusades across Canada in Ottawa, Ontario; Toronto, Ontario; Edmonton, Alberta; and Langley, British Columbia.
Many lives were touched as Kenneth and Lynette Hagin met with partners, friends, and alumni. Lynette Hagin prophesied during the first session in Toronto that a mighty explosion of the Gospel and a great awakening was about to sweep across Canada. And for the next week, the Hagins poured everything they had into the people to prepare them for the great spiritual move about to dawn.
Crossing the Pond
Throughout the earth, RHEMA Bible Training Center is raising up laborers to bring in the great end-time harvest. In 2010 the Hagins and their team traveled to Europe, visiting schools in Germany, Austria, and Italy, and taking part in their graduation ceremonies. Although these countries are filled with magnificent church buildings, many citizens there have closed the doors of their hearts to God. But RHEMA graduates across Europe—armed with the keys of God’s Kingdom—are banding together to unlock the chains that have kept people bound.
The Hagins also made stops in Nigeria and Zambia to check progress at two new international campuses. RHEMA Abuja, Nigeria opened in October, and RHEMA Lusaka, Zambia will open in January 2011.
Lady Eagles Win 2010 ACCA National Championship
If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like the edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting endings to sports events, then you wouldn’t have enjoyed the heart-pounding adrenaline rush spectators experienced at the 2010 ACCA Women’s National Championship basketball game. Outnumbered and outranked, RHEMA Bible Training Center’s Lady Eagles fought their way to victory. On paper, the deck appeared stacked against RHEMA from the tipoff. The Lady Eagles suited up only six players, while defending champion Southwestern Christian University boasted a lineup of 12. Led by the ACCA player of the year, SCU was riding a six-game winning streak and playing in their home gym. But games aren’t won on paper—they’re won on the court. RHEMA and SCU entered overtime with the score tied 77-77. The Lady Eagles started the extra period with only five available players. Then, with 14.2 seconds remaining on the clock and RHEMA up 83-79, their fifth player fouled out. With only four players left on the court, the Lady Eagles beat back an SCU challenge and won 83–82!
New Schools Open on RHEMA USA Campus
Centro de Entrenamiento Bíblico RHEMA Español (CEB RHEMA) opened its doors on the RHEMA USA campus September 20. Taught entirely in Spanish, CEB RHEMA is an intensive, two-year Bible School that mirrors the RHEMA USA program.
In addition, Southwestern Christian University (SCU) began holding evening classes on the RHEMA campus in a relationship that also benefits RBTC students and graduates. It has long been on the Hagins’ hearts to give RHEMA students the opportunity to earn a degree—and now they can! SCU credits all second-year RBTC graduates with 40 hours toward the 60 credit hours required to enter their Bachelor of Science degree-completion program. For those with an earned bachelor’s degree, SCU offers a Master of Ministry degree in either Life Coaching or Leadership.
RBTC Explodes Around the World!
Who would have thought that what began with 58 students would grow to encompass more than 45,000 graduates and 80 campuses worldwide? That “tramp, tramp, tramp” Kenneth E. Hagin heard so many years ago—that sound of feet going forth with the Good News—now echoes around the globe. Our graduates are taking the message of faith—that of salvation, healing, and the believer’s authority—to the uttermost parts of the earth. And now, thanks to an ever-growing number of RBTC campuses, they’re being trained in the “uttermost parts” to reach their nations for Jesus.
RHEMA Bible Training Center campuses have opened this year in:
» Vienna, Austria
» Nice, France
» Athens, Greece
» Coventry, England
» Manchester, England
» Cairo, Egypt
» Abuja, Nigeria
» Cochabamba, Bolivia
» Barranquilla, Colombia
» Montreal, Canada
RHEMA Egypt opened on August 16 with 40 students from six nations in that region.
Illuminating God’s Love
Some people won’t come to a church service, but they will come to one of their area’s biggest and best fireworks displays. July 4, more than 50,000 people packed the RHEMA USA campus and thousands more gathered in adjacent areas for the free Rockets Over RHEMA Independence Day celebration. With every bounce on an inflatable game, every sweet bite of cotton candy, and every song heard from the outdoor concert stage, attendees were shown the love of God. As fireworks filled the night sky, each person—young and old alike—enjoyed His goodness.
Shining Light in the Darkness
Here at Kenneth Hagin Ministries, our heart is to reach people—whether they’re halfway around the world in a remote jungle village or in our own backyard. That’s why the Hagins flipped the switch on a brilliant display of two million Christmas lights on the RHEMA campus November 24.
In a dark and desperate world, this spectacular display, which runs through December, points thousands of visitors to the one true light, Jesus Christ.
25 Years and Still Going Strong!
Each year a variety of Kenneth Hagin Ministries events—including Campmeeting, Winter Bible Seminar, the Kindle the Flame® Women’s Conference, and the A Call to Arms® Men’s Conference—are held in the RHEMA Bible Church auditorium. In October the church celebrated 25 years of
life-changing ministry, wonderful fellowship, and great fun.
