Kathryn Kuhlman Ministry

She traveled widely around the U.S. and in many other nations between the 1940s and 1970s holding “healing crusades.” She was one of the most well-known ministers of healing in the world. In the 1960s and 1970s, Kuhlman had a nationally broadcast weekly television program called I Believe In Miracles. She also had a 30-minute national radio teaching ministry from the Bible and would often feature extracts from her healing services. Her foundation was founded in 1954 and her branch in Canada in 1970.

She relocated to Los Angeles by 1970, performing healing services for thousands of individuals, and was often contrasted with Aimee Semple MacPherson despite an enormous distinction. Despite, as she often stated, having no theological training, she became well known for her “healing gift.”

Kuhlman was friendly with Christian television pioneer Pat Robertson and appeared on his Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) and the flagship program “The 700 Club” of the network.

Kathryn Kuhlman Death

Kuhlman was diagnosed with a heart issue in 1955, in her late 40s. She held a busy timetable, often traveling across the U.S. and around the globe, holding lengthy sessions that finished late for two to six hours. She was diagnosed with a minor heart flare-up by her doctor in July 1975; she had a relapse in November.

As a consequence, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kuhlman had open-heart surgery from which she died on February 20, 1976. Kathryn Kuhlman is buried at Glendale, California’s Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery. A plaque in her honor is in Concordia’s primary city park, Missouri, a town on Interstate Highway 70 in central Missouri.

She’s going to lead to controversy after she died. She left to three family members and twenty staff $267,500, the bulk of her property. 19 other staff were provided smaller legacies. According to the Independent Press-Telegram, her staff was disappointed that “she did not leave most of her property to the foundation as she did under a 1974 will before.”

The Kathryn Kuhlman Foundation had persisted, but its nationwide radio broadcasting ended in 1982 owing to absence of financing. The Foundation ultimately shut down in April 2016.

I didn’t have any looks, I didn’t have any talent, and it was easy for me to say to the Lord, “I don’t have anything.” If you only knew where I came from … this leetle-bitty town with no more than twelve hundred people in it. So … anything I am today, He is the one who has done it.
