John Hagee was born in Baytown, Texas, to Vada Mildred (Swiek) and Rev. William Bythel Hagee. He graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering in 1964. He was on a football scholarship and was on the Academic Dean’s List. Hagee received a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of North Texas in 1966 and did his theological training at Southwestern Assemblies of God University with a Diploma in Theology in Waxahachie, Texas. Hagee then went on to earn a Th.D from Trinity University. Dr. Hagee also has a masters and a doctorate in History from the University of North Texas. Hagee descends from a long line of Anabaptist Mennonite pastors, which was a factor in the development of his theology and vocation. In 1989, he received an Honorary Doctorate from Oral Roberts University. In 2005, he received another Honorary Doctorate from Netanya Academic College in Israel. Hagee has served on the Oral Roberts University Board of Regents since 1989.

On August 26, 1960, Hagee married his first wife Martha; they had two children, Christopher and Tish. In October 1966, Hagee founded Trinity Church in San Antonio, Texas. Hagee and Martha divorced in 1975.

Hagee married his second wife, Diana Castro Hagee, a member of Trinity Church, on April 12, 1976. According to both biographies at John Hagee Ministries, Hagee and his wife Diana have three children, Christina, Matthew, and Sandy, and eight grandchildren. Matthew Hagee, John’s son, is the executive pastor of Cornerstone Church.

Hagee founded a new church, The Church at Castle Hills, on May 11, 1975, Mother’s Day. The church started with 25 members, but within two years, had to build a new sanctuary seating 1,600 people. The church continued to grow; on October 4, 1987, Hagee dedicated a 5,000-seat sanctuary and named it Cornerstone Church. Dr. W. A. Criswell of Dallas anointed Hagee and Diana before the congregation.

Today, Trinity Church is located 7.3 mi (11.7 km) from Hagee’s Cornerstone Church on the same stretch of highway in San Antonio.

Hagee has written a number of best-selling books and is a Southern Gospel recording artist. He, Matthew, Christina, and Sandy often travel together as the “Hagee Family Singers.”
