The AF44 Miracle and

Kenneth Copeland’s Promises

_______

.

It is imperative that the readers of this blog realize that Kenneth Copeland has not only repeatedly promised a new aviation ministry called Angel Flight 44 (AF44), but that he has actually also repeatedly stated publicly that it already existed. Further, he made very ambitious statements regarding the planned growth and scope of this new ministry which included a new aircraft hangar, more airplanes, helicopters, and even water-borne capabilities through amphibious aircraft. As Kenneth Copeland himself called it, “Angel Flight 44…land, sea, and air.”

It is extremely important that you hear and see Copeland make these statements yourself, as it is always best to go directly to the source to discover the facts. Consequently, I have embedded the following videos to document clearly that my allegations are based purely in fact, and not merely in speculation.

.

Video Formatting Note:

All three videos have been excerpted from their full services for brevity’s sake. However, in order to provide the viewers with adequate media content that helps to ensure Kenneth Copeland’s statements are not taken out of context, we have also included additional service footage as well. Each video below is preceded with a brief explanation of what content is included.

In order to ensure that the edits we made between video segments are clear to the viewers, we have used a transitional affect known as a “page peel” which the BVOV television staff do not use themselves. Whenever you see one clip “peel away” from the bottom right corner as a page of a book turning to reveal the next page, you will know that this was a KennethCopelandBlog.com edit and not an original transition or change in camera angle made by the original television staff of Kenneth Copeland Ministries.

2006 Southwest Believer’s Convention (SWBC):

Kenneth Copeland first announced the alleged existence of this new aviation ministry of Kenneth Copeland Ministries at the 2006 SWBC in the Friday morning and evening services.

The morning session on that Friday was called “Increase Day” as it was the KCM “partner” (i.e. donor) recruitment service. This video begins with the opening announcements that indicates the audience size hearing the proclamations to be made by Kenneth Copeland. We left the KCM promo video in the clip to give our viewers some background information regarding the professed scope of this ministry, and thus, the potential number of people who were informed of this new AF44 ministry.

The Friday evening service video clip below likewise includes the opening announcements. This video also includes a special presentation made to honor the pastors of Slidell, Louisiana who, along with their members, administered the humanitarian aid from their little church. It is a touching story, indeed.

That presentation was immediately followed by another announcement regarding the new Angel Flight 44 ministry made personally by me while I was on the platform with Kenneth Copeland and Glen Hyde. Shortly after I leave the platform, Kenneth Copeland proclaims to all watching and in attendance (paraphrased), “I am excited about Angel Flight 44, and you should be too. Let’s take up tonight’s offering.”

In addition to the estimated 8,000 people in attendance at the convention center and by Internet, this service was also simulcasted live by Daystar Television to potentially millions of viewers worldwide. At one point in the clip, Kenneth Copeland directly addresses the Daystar television audience:

2007 KCM Minister’s Conference:

The following January, 2007, ministers from all over the world gathered at the KCM/Eagle Mountain International Church facilities in Newark, Texas. Immediately following the Wednesday morning sessions and prior to the break for lunch, Kenneth Copeland made announcements about the new Angel Flight 44 ministry again, and gave nearly 1,300 copies of the newly released Angel Flight 44 book away to those in attendance. This was a closed invitation-only meeting, so this video excerpt is not available on the KCM website for viewing:

Believer’s Voice of Victory Magazine Announcements:

In addition to the above public announcements, KCM publicized the new Angel Flight 44 ministry in three editions of their Believer’s Voice of Victory (BVOV) Magazine.

In the January, 2007 edition of BVOV, beginning on page 8, the magazine begins its “2006 KCM Meetings: Changing Lives Worldwide” summary of the previous years events. On page 10, the Angel Flight 44 ministry is announced with a picture of AF44-pilot Glen Hyde also on the page. You can download the entire BVOV magazine (obtained from KCM’s online archive, and unaltered) by clicking on the image below:

Then in the March, 2007 “Special Partnership Edition” of BVOV magazine, the new ministry was announced once again. In an article by Kenneth Copeland entitled, “How to Be A Worldwide Blessing” begins on page 4, and therein there is first a sidebar reference to the new AF44 on page 5.

Then further into the article on page 9, Kenneth Copeland exclaims, “You need several million dollars to build an airplane hangar and buy helicopters, airplanes, food and supplies for Angel Flight 44, your international aviation outreach that helps the needy in times of disaster… Those aren’t just outreaches of Kenneth Copeland Ministries. If you’re a Partner, they’re your outreaches too.” You can download the entire magazine by clicking on the image below:

According to KCM’s website, “Since 1973, the Believer’s Voice of Victory magazine has transformed many lives and is now flooding mailboxes on five different continents. This free monthly publication is full of powerful tools for spiritual growth and is available in multilingual translations.” In KCM’s recent rebuttal to our allegations as presented here on KennethCopelandBlog.com, they stated that their BVOV magazine circulation is “over 500,000″ copies. Considering that the English edition is their largest, and that the January, 2007 issue of the Spanish edition also promised the new AF44 ministry, it is not unreasonable to assume that perhaps well-over 350,000 families received those issues in their mailboxes (and on average, there multiple people in each household).

.

Summary:

Within this single web page, we have provided just over a total of 1 hour and 17 minutes worth of video and three Kenneth Copeland Ministries’ BVOV Magazine publications, to establish the fact that the promises of Kenneth Copeland regarding the existence and development of the new Angel Flight 44 ministry are a matter of public record. Moreover, by providing additional video footage and the full magazine contents to the public, it should be clear to all that we are not taking ANY of Kenneth Copeland’s statements out of context.

The information provided on this web page also establishes clearly that multitudes of people are also witness with us regarding these facts:

  • As was mentioned in the videos above, the 2006 Southwest Believer’s Convention had an estimated 8,000 people (according to KCM figures) in attendance or watching by Internet.
  • At the Friday evening service of this same convention, Daystar Television was simulcasting the service to potentially millions of viewers worldwide through their global satellite network.
  • As was stated already above, it is not unreasonable to assume that perhaps well-over 350,000 families received copies of the AF44-promising BVOV magazine issues in their mailboxes around the world (and again, on average, there multiple people in each household).

Thus, the Angel Flight 44 ministry announcements were significant, clear, and VERY ambitious. Thus, one must certainly conclude that Kenneth Copeland’s commitments were certainly not mere side commentary or passing comments made without premeditation.

And we have not yet discussed what he said within the book itself…
