Founder and Senior Pastor John Hagee comes from a family of pastors and churchmen; so it was understandably, a bit of a shock for his Trinity Church congregation and followers, when he divorced his first wife, Martha Downing in 1975.

John Hagee married Martha Downing in 1960 and they went on to have two children, Christopher and Tish, together.

But, by 1975, John Hagee probably wanted to move on, for he, not only went on to get a divorce from Martha; form a new church, the Cornerstone Church, but he, also got married to Diana Castro the next year, in 1976. John and Diana are now the proud parents of three children, Christina, Matthew, and Sandy. John has thirteen grandchildren, in all. After his divorce from Martha, the custody of their two children had gone to Martha.

John Hagee was denounced by many for divorcing his wife and some even implied that he had had an extra- marital affair with Diana Castro, who was a member of his former church and whom he then, married. Allegedly, John Hagee wrote a letter to his church admitting to immorality on his part. The only fact in the purview of speculation could be said to be the name of the other party in his act of immorality.

 

Since then, John Hagee has been happily married to his second wife, Diana.
