Prominent church leaders on Saturday paid glowing tributes to renowned German preacher, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who died at 79.
Bonnke, the founder of Christ For All Nations (CFAN) organised many mass crusades across major cities in Nigeria for over 30 years.
His last crusade in Africa, which he claimed God specially instructed him to hold in Lagos, was in 2017 on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) Rev.
Samson Ayokunle, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media & Communications, Pastor Bayo Oladeji, described Bonnke as “one of the greatest generals of the gospel of eternal salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ on earth.”
“CAN and the entire Christian communities in Nigeria join the rest of Christians all over the world to mourn this fiery preacher and teacher of the Gospel and mentor to several evangelical leaders all around the world today.
“Reinhard Bonnke has reached Africa and countries of the world through his ministry called Christ For All Nations preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through which millions of souls were saved into the Kingdom of God or received their healings,” the CAN president stated.
