Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke was called home to the Lord on December 7, 2019.

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who travelled the world for more than half a century and saw 75 million recorded conversions to Christ, was today (December 7, 2019) called home to the Lord. He was 79.

The founder of Christ For All Nations, who was born in Germany in 1940, passed away peacefully, his family announced in a statement.

A post on Bonnke’s official Facebook page written by his wife Anni and family read: “It is with sorrow that the Bonnke Family would like to announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 7, 2019.

“For the past 60 years he has preached the glorious Gospel of Jesus throughout the entire world. We want to thank you on behalf of him and our family, for your kind love and unwavering support, which enabled him to preach the matchless message of salvation to countless people.”

The family requested that instead of sending flowers, well-wishers should make a donation to Christ For All Nations – Africa Crusade.

Over the years, Bonnke regularly visited Singapore to preach the Gospel at the Fire Conference, organised by Christ For All Nations, which has an office based in Singapore.
