Reinhard Bonnke was a Christian evangelist known for carrying out extensive gospel missions throughout the African continent. Born in East Prussia, he was inclined towards Christianity since his childhood years, owing to his parents. His father, after the Second World War, became a pastor. Reinhard moved to Wales to study in the Bible College of Wales and the years he spent there, became the transforming years of his life. When he was 10, he had already decided to move to Africa to spread God’s word. Following his graduation from the college, he began holding gospel meetings in Germany and in 1967, he moved to South Africa to do work as a minister. When being minister in a small church did not set well with him, he decided to enlarge his scale and decided to become an evangelist. By the early 1970s, he became extremely popular, with his meetings attended by tens of thousands of people. By the early 2000s, he was receiving record breaking attendances, in millions, during his meetings. He also began the CfaN, Christ for all Nations, press and his popularity further grew. He preached until the very last phase of his life and held his farewell meeting in November 2017, before passing away in 2019.
