More About Kenneth Copeland
Kenneth Copeland (born December 6, 1936) is an American author, musician, public speaker, and televangelist. He is the founder of Kenneth Copeland Ministries, based out of Fort Worth Texas, and an advocate of prosperity gospel. According to his ministry, believers can become prosperous through tithing, giving offerings, having faith, and using sound financial practices.
In May 1967, Kenneth Copeland was walking along the bed of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma, when the Lord dropped the vision of the ministry into his heart: to preach the gospel to the nations—a call that would include using every available voice to preach the uncompromised message of faith to meet the needs of people worldwide.
It all started though with simple steps of obedience and faith, walking in love and the integrity of God's Word.
In 1957 at 20 years of age, with a hit record, Pledge of Love, at #14 on the national charts and #1 on the local charts Kenneth looked to be on his way to a successful singing career appearing on American Bandstand and featured next to Ricky Nelson in Dig Magazine. But God had other plans. He met Gloria and asked her to marry him on their first date. She said yes. At that time, they lived in a rented apartment with a rollaway bed, coffeepot they cooked in and kept their food on the porch to keep it cold. Things were not abundant but as Gloria sat reading a Bible given to Kenneth from his mother one day she prayed, "God, take my life and do something with it." Shortly thereafter Kenneth became a Christian and five years later at the age of 30 he obeyed God, packed up his family, and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to enroll at Oral Roberts University in spring of 1967.
Kenneth applied to be Oral Roberts' co-pilot and he was made part of the flight crew attending all the tent meetings and crusades. It was during this time that he was learning exponentially through on-the-job training. Just a few months after Kenneth worked for Oral, God called him to start his own ministry and on September 7, 1967, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was birthed.
"Kenneth Copeland Ministries was birthed out of love for the people and a commitment to bring people the Word," states Kenneth Copeland. "Our lives are totally wrapped up in ministering to the people. When we say, "We're here for you." we mean it to this point—everything we do, everything we preach, every broadcast we come on, everywhere we minister, everything we say and do is prayed, engineered, designed to minister to the people.... God called us to take His message of love and faith to the whole world. We care about you and we want to help you find the answers you need in God's Word.
Kellie Copeland Swisher, Kenneth and Gloria's daughter, believes that is what sets Kenneth and Gloria apart. "People all the time use the phrases 'Word church,' 'Word people,' 'Word movement.'" states Kellie. "Forty years ago, faith was ambiguous. It wasn't a movement. To us, it was just a way of life. Mom and Dad said, 'If we see it in the Word, we're going to form our life around that. We're going to change our life to fit the Word.' It's the way we live our life. Every decision they make is formed around the Word."
"Integrity and integrity in God's Word," continues John Copeland, son and CEO of KCM. "That's what this ministry has stood on for 40 years and will stand on for the next 40 years. People have said word of faith teaches that you don't ever have problems and that's just not true. Our families have been faced with adversities. Sometimes you just go through something. It's not that you don't face obstacles and don't face adversities, it's what you do when you are faced with those adversities. How do you handle yourself, what do you do? You have a choice. And we were raised not to just take it but to fight it, stand against it, believe God and the integrity of His Word and you will come out on the other side."
Kenneth and Gloria have learned the principle of connecting to God in faith. By the Lord's blessing, they have taught their children, grandchildren and Partners the world over the power of connecting with God and His Word every day in every way in their life, making for a great heritage and legacy.

Mandatory reading for anyone who is in or is preparing for Dec 31, 2000
Many people hear the call of the Lord on their lives but often do no understand what it is for. The Bible says that "many are called but few are chosen," the many are called to sit under the leadership and teaching of the few God has charged with the responsibility of the five fold ministry. This book should be mandatory reading for anyone who has this responsibility, is thinking about going into the ministry, new to the ministry or who have started and lost their zeal. Kenneth sticks directly to using bible based teaching to get right to the heart of building integrity with God in the ministry. All of the steps are scriptural based and unlike other books are not heavily tainted with personal views or conjecture.
Reminiscent of Paul teaching Timothy, this book does not spare you feelings but makes you confront yourself, (which is the #1 hindrance in spiritual growth in the ministry). It provokes a level of commitment and gives gravity to the magnitude of preaching the Gospel as a 24hr lifetime obligation and not just an occasion to talk to an audience. In the introduction, he says "As Christians, we demand excellence from our heavenly Father...Since we expect excellence from God, we should also be willing to demand that same excellence from ourselves." This book is an easy read and promises to encourage you out of mediocrity and complacency to victory in ministry. An absolute must have for any ministry or personal library. God Bless you Bro. Copeland!
