GOD TV Tribute To Reinhard Bonnke
GOD TV joins with millions across the globe to pay tribute to Reinhard Bonnke, our beloved friend and mentor. Ward Simpson, GOD TV President and CEO, affectionately has called Bonnke “a Heavenly giant.”
The passing of such a dearly loved global Christian leader leaves many Christians around the world mourning. However, we know Heaven is celebrating the arrival of a true General in God’s Army. “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Reinhard Bonnke’s ministry spans some 52 years and is known for its integrity, supernatural miracles and mass crusades which attracted some of the largest gatherings of people. Through the work of CfaN he preached at countless crusades and conferences; many on the continent of Africa. CfaN has recorded 79 million salvations to date.
“To me he was one of the greatest evangelists, if not the greatest, who ever lived,” says Ward Simpson. “Brother Reinhard’s autobiography, Living a Life of Fire is the most amazing and faith-building book I have ever read.”
“All of us at GOD TV send our sincere condolences to Reinhard’s wife Anni, their children and grandchildren. We also stand with Daniel Kolenda and all our dear friends at CfaN. Together, we will continue to take the messages that Reinhard preached so passionately to viewers across the nations.”
Taking Up The Baton
Though Reinhard has gone to be with the Lord, his famous cry still resounds… “From Cape to Cairo, Africa will be saved!” We will continue to run with the baton he has passed on. We will preach the Gospel with the same passion and fire across the globe!
GOD TV aired Reinhard Bonnke’s Farewell Crusade LIVE from Lagos, Nigeria. During this historic event, Brother Reinhard said. “I am going to pass that burning torch that the Holy Spirit gave to me to all who want to receive it and follow in my footsteps.” With Brother Reinhard’s passing he leaves behind a “Legacy of Harvest” as CfaN has aptly described.
Who better to take up the baton of his evangelistic calling than you? Today’s world needs many more Reinhard Bonnkes. Through his passing let’s be challenged to be more bold in our witness. Our fruit will be his lasting legacy!
