Marilyn Hickey (born July 1, 1931) is an American Christian minister and Christian television televangelist and personality who teaches Bible studies both nationally and internationally.


Hickey was born in Overland Park, Kansas, on July 1, 1931. When she was a young girl, Marilyn, whose parents were professing Methodists, attended church only casually, but she became a born again Christian when she was a teenager. In college, she studied Spanish, intending to become a public high school teacher. Although her husband is a pastor of the Assemblies of God denomination, Marilyn Hickey doesn't identify herself with any particular denomination (3). The couple married, and after a short time in Texas returned to Denver to found Full Gospel Chapel. The church, now known as Orchard Road Christian Center, is now one of the largest churches in the Denver area, and currently meets in a former mall in Greenwood Village. They have since turned over the pastorate to their daughter Sarah Bowling and son-in-law Reece Bowling.

Marilyn and Sarah TV program[edit]

Hickey has aired a television program since 1973, and since 1996 has co-hosted it with her daughter Sarah Bowling. Marilyn and Sarah can be seen on various Christian networks such as Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and the DayStar Network and independent stations in both the U.S. and across the globe, and also on web and podcasts, including the ministries website.[1][2]

Missionary works[edit]

With her daughter Sarah and at times with her husband Wallace and others, Hickey also regularly appears as both a speaker in conferences, especially overseas, leading missions trips with strong emphasis on outreach and aid in third-world nations. Hickey has served as a member of the Board of Regents of Oral Roberts University.


The Hickeys preach and teach a Charismatic Word of Faith message.
