Who Is Benny Hinn
Benny Hinn, whose real name is Toufik Benedictus Hinn, is an Israeli author, televangelist, and speaker. He gained popularity in the late 1980s when he began his faith healing and revival meeting summits titled “Miracle Crusades”. Besides the summits, that usually take place in major cities and large arenas (such as stadiums), he is also known for his television program “This Is Your Day”, which is a Christian television show that’s broadcasted all over the world on national television networks.
How did Benny Hinn earn his net worth?
Landing his own Christian television show helped the Christian speaker become rich in the 1990s. In the 1980s, he moved to the United States, first spending some time in Orlando, Florida. While there, he began using the pseudonym “Benny Hinn” and founded the “Orlando Christian Center”. He also slowly started to conduct his own “Miracle Crusades” – summits that focus on faith and revival. By the mid-years of the decade, his summits caught the attention of thousands from around the United States, thanks to which he was able to earn more than $20.000.
In 1990, after gaining national popularity, Benny signed a multi-million dollar contract with various networks such as INSP, The God Channel, and Trinity Broadcasting Network for the creation of his own show titled “This Is Your Day”. The Christian television show began airing in 1990 and it follows the Pastor and his many adventures. Thanks to the show’s clips of supposed miracles, it quickly became a worldwide phenomenon that accumulated viewers from all over the globe. By the end of the 20th century, the Pastor had already earned well over $10 million net worth from his show and tours around the world.
Why is he so famous?
Benny Hinn became famous when he became a televangelist. Toufik, which is his first real name, was born on 3 December 1952, in Jaffa, Israel. His parents are of Greek-Egyptian, Armenian-Lebanese, and Palestinian heritage. During his teenage years, and after the 1967 Arab-Israeli War (also called “the Six-Day War”), his family emigrated to Toronto, Canada. There, he attended the Georges Vanier Secondary School, which he dropped out of before graduation.
In 1972, Toufik became a born-again Christian who traveled from Toronto to the United States. He spent several months in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to attend miracle services conducted by the established evangelist Kathryn Kuhlman. Two years later, in early 1974, after nearly twenty years of suffering from stuttering, his speech disorder was cured of a spiritual experience held at the Trinity Pentecostal Church, based in Oshawa.
What makes him so successful?
Benny Hinn is successful mainly because of his faith and his work as a televangelist. As of 2021, the Pastor’s Christian television show has become one of the most-watched Christian shows in the world. It airs on international television networks such as Daystar, Revelation, Grace, and Vision TV, to name a few. In the past two decades, he has also had numerous guest appearances in television series and reality programs that further boosted his popularity.
In addition to the show and his regular “Miracle Crusades” events, the televangelist became a full-time author who has continuously written books since the 1990s. His very first book is “Good Morning, Holy Spirit” from 1990. Among some of his other best-selling works are “The Anointing”, “The Blood Story Guide”, “He Touched Me”, and “Miracle of Healing”.
Whether it’s with his books, summits, or television show, Benny Hinn has established himself as one of the most influential televangelists in the entire world. He is also no stranger to making history. One of his most memorable crusades and events from the summer of 2007, which took part in India gathered more than 7.3 million people (in just three services). With that, it became the largest healing service ever recorded.
With a net worth of nearly $75 million and with millions of viewers and followers from around the globe, Benny Hinn is considered one of the most beloved pastors ever. Shortly after he was born again in the 1970s, he became a televangelist, author, and public speaker that has not only helped himself but many others. Now, at the age of 67, he’s more active than ever and continues his quest to help others with faith, religion, and revival.
