Bern Zumpano is a born-again, Spirit-filled Bible teacher and Presiding Elder of Word of Faith Ministries International in Miami, Florida. Bern is a retired physician.
Bern became born-again in 1984 while he was still a practicing surgeon. At that time, his eleven-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Two Christian women overheard his wife discussing their son’s condition to friends in the lobby of the hospital. The women approached Bern’s wife and told her that they were Christians who believed in healing by the laying-on-of-hands, and asked if they could go to the boy’s room to pray over him. They did, and two days later, Bern’s son was taken into surgery. When the surgeons opened the diseased area, the tumor was gone! Praise Jesus! Biopsies were normal. Bern’s son did not need to have any organs removed, radiation, or even chemotherapy. Bern still has the x-rays showing the tumor mass. Bern witnessed the POWER of God in his life; and shortly thereafter, he was brought to the fullness of the born-again experience and baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Over the past 18 years, the Lord has used Bern to teach believers how to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. Bern’s experience and expertise is in the healing and deliverance ministry. In 1992, the Lord moved him into the prophetic ministry with the 5-fold anointing.
Bern is renown worldwide in Christian circles as both a radio and television personality. His television credits include several appearances on the Richard Roberts Show, the 700 Club with Pat Robertson, and on TBN. His weekly worldwide Bible-study radio program, “Walking in Power,” is broadcast to every nation of the world through World Harvest Radio Network. During the past 16 years, Bern has researched and written 11 books on spiritual warfare and related topics. He has produced almost 800 audio cassette teachings on various Christian topics.
His past life is one which has been filled with both tragedy and blessings. Having suffered the loss of his first-born son, who died in his sleep at the age of 22 in 1990, and the death of his wife to cancer in 1994, the Lord has enabled Bern to minister to Christian believers who suffer from emotional and physical traumas resulting in broken-hearts and wounded spirits.
Bern Zumpano does not accept any income for himself. His home Bible teachings have been turned into weekly radio broadcasts, reaching nations around the world in the English language. Word of Faith Ministries International, Bern’s home church, is responsible for the production, distribution, and sales, through its publishing organ Harbor Light Publishers of all his books and audio tapes. Created over the past 18 years, they are donated and licensed to Word of Faith Ministries International, an outreach ministry to the third-world and persecuted church outside of the United States, by the grace of Almighty God.
