The Journey

The Call

After Bill Hamon’s salvation at the age of 16 in Boswell, Oklahoma, he had a great desire to become a minister for God.


He attended Bible College in Portland, Oregon and became the pastor of a small church in Washington state in 1954 at age 19.


In 1964, Bill and his wife, Evelyn, and their three young children moved to San Antonio, Texas where Bill was asked to be a teacher at a Bible college.

The Beginning

During the last twenty-six years, hundreds of Cl Extensions have been established in local churches around the world. Over 8,000 students have enrolled in Cl Off-Campus Bible College Courses with over 820 graduates. For 30 years, CI has developed quality college courses in 10 different majors.


Dr. Bill Hamon founds Christian International School of Theology.


The first CI Extension Colleges were established.


God challenges Dr. Hamon to add the “School of the Holy Spirit” to the CI ministry. This “school” served as a “classroom ministry” to teach, train and activate individuals in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In addition, special Holy Spirit emphasis conferences and seminars were held throughout the year at nearby hotel/resort facilities to meet the registration demands.


Christian International forms its first ministerial association, Christian International Ministerial Association (CIMA).


Dr. Bill Hamon receives the revelation that God was going to raise up a great end-time company of prophets to restore the ministries of the prophet and the apostle. He wrote the first in a series of three books on prophets and the prophetic ministry. God began giving Dr. Hamon both a vision and a burden for calling forth, activating, and maturing that great company of prophets. CIMA was changed to Christian International Network of Prophetic Ministries (CI NPM) with the purpose of fulfilling that vision. CI NPM grew nationwide with scores of ministers and churches. Hundreds of prophets and prophetic ministers were called forth and activated into prophetic ministry.


At the International Gathering of Apostles and Prophets conference, the Lord comes upon Dr. Bill Hamon and he begins to travail. Dr Hamon knows he is experiencing ‘birthing pains’ and that night the Prophetic Movement is birthed and restored to the Body of Christ.


Apostles begin to be recognized, along with the prophets, as foundational ministries of the Church. The Apostolic Movement is in its embryonic stages.


With the birthing of the Apostolic, an understanding of oversight and accountability begins to be a strong desire. The networking together of ministers and churches for relationship, oversight, and accountability will add a new dimension of covering for those relating to CI NPM. Christian International Apostolic Network (CIAN) is formed to meet that need.
