30 Million People Expected for Reinhard Bonnke’s Farewell Tour
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, founder of Christ for all Nations (CfaN), is preparing to hold his farewell crusade in Africa next month.
“From November 8 to 12, I will be back for a mighty gospel crusade in Lagos, Nigeria,” Bonnke told followers in a video posted on his Facebook page.
The German-born evangelist is returning to the west African nation for a five-day crusade.
Organizers say their goal is to reach more than 30 million Nigerians with the gospel.
“I call it my farewell crusade,” Bonnke said in the video. “It’s going to be tremendously anointed and powerful.”
According to CfaN, the last time Bonnke held an event in Nigeria was in 2000 when 6 million people attended his meetings and more than 3 million people made decisions for Christ.
“This crusade will be like none we have seen before,” declared John Darku, CfaN’s African director.
The ministry has reportedly recruited 500,000 counselors, 200,000 intercessors, some 23,000 people to sing in a choir and more than 10,000 security personnel.
“I believe many, many souls will be saved,” Bonnke said. “We will see mighty miracles from God.”
Healing, miracles, and signs and wonders, have been the hallmark of Bonnke’s crusades over the decades. Organizers believe this final event will be no different.
“He has seen witchdoctors and people bound in the occult become transformed by Holy Spirit-powered Gospel, and he is believing for an even greater move of the Spirit in this last crusade,” CfaN said in a statement.
Rev. Bonnke talked with CBN’s CEO Gordon Robertson about some of the miracles he has witnessed during his crusades.
Bonnke used his Facebook post to encourage Nigerians to come and experience what he believes is going to be the “the greatest crusade we have ever held!”
“Bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your relatives, bring the sick, bring the blind, birng the unsaved, just gather them together…and the heavens will be open and the Holy Spirit will flow,” Bonnke urged his followers.
Now, at 77, Bonnke says he’s passing the torch to a new generation of evangelists as he prepares to retire after more than 40 years in ministry.
