Wife of Evangelist Benny Hinn Files for Divorce

Suzanne Harthern Hinn, the wife of
healing evangelist Benny Hinn, has filed for divorce from the high-profile
minister, citing irreconcilable differences.

Don Price, longtime senior adviser
to Benny Hinn Ministries, said the divorce filing took Benny Hinn by surprise.

“Pastor Benny Hinn and his
immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any
previous notice,” Price said. “The couple has been married for more than 30
years. Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their
relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce
that was filed without notice.”
 

Suzanne Hinn filed the papers in
Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 1.

Hinn is well known for leading
large-scale healing crusades around the world, where his popular This Is
Your Day
program is broadcast on Trinity Broadcasting Network and other
television outlets.

He was featured on the cover of Charisma
in 1979 and 1993 and has written numerous books, including his life story,
Good Morning, Holy Spirit. Several of his books have been published by
Strang Communications, which also publishes Charisma.

The corporate headquarters for
Benny Hinn Ministries and World Healing Center Church is in Grapevine, Texas,
but the Hinn family has been living in Southern California to be near the
ministry-owned television studio and church in Aliso Viejo, according to the
ministry Web site.

Recently, Hinn was one of six charismatic ministers targeted
in an ongoing investigation by Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, ranking Republican
on the Senate Finance Committee, to determine whether they were complying with
IRS rules for nonprofits.

Hinn has said external auditors ensure his compliance with
IRS regulations but he has cooperated with Grassley’s office.

Married in 1979, the Hinns have three daughters and a son.
