Over the years, John Hagee Ministries has given more than $85 million toward humanitarian causes in Israel. In 2006, Dr. Hagee founded, and is the National Chairman of Christians United For Israel, a grass roots national association through which every pro—Israel Christian ministry, para-church organization, or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
Dr. Hagee gains support for this worthy cause by conducting A Night to Honor Israel in every major city in America and by organizing an annual Washington D.C.-Israel Summit where thousands of CUFI delegates from every state in the union have the opportunity to meet the members of congress face to face on behalf of Israel.
Christians United for Israel has grown to become the largest Christian pro-Israel organization in the United States – with over 2.1 million members– and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. Christians United for Israel has recently opened offices in the United Kingdom and Canada to combat anti-Semitism.
Pastor Hagee and his wife Diana are blessed with five children and thirteen grandchildren.
