Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, the Founder of Christ for all Nations (CfaN), plans to return one last time to Nigeria for his final African Gospel Crusade in November 2017.
Another historic global attendance could be inspired by the return of Bonnke to Africa.
According to the media release of the evangelistic ministry, this upcoming farewell crusade is perceived to break the CfaN's record of 6 million attendees during the Nigeria Millennium Crusade held in year 2000.
Many decision cards are also anticipated by CfaN in response to Bonnke's farewell message.
Passing The Burning Torch Conference for leaders and church workers is one of the awaited highlights of the crusade.
Bonnke believes that thousands of pastors and evangelists from around the globe will be inspired to evangelism, says CfaN.
John Darku, CfaN's African director says: "This crusade will be like none we have seen before. Currently we plan to recruit 500 000 counsellors, 200 000 intercessors, a choir of over 23 000 and a security force of over 10 000. There is great excitement from all the churches in the country, and we are expecting a spectacular harvest of people coming to Christ."
Lead evangelist of CfaN and successor to Bonnke, Daniel Kolenda says: "I'm thrilled to join with Reinhard in this vision, and know that the results of this crusade will be farther reaching and of even greater consequence than we can even imagine."
Over 40 years ago, God has given Bonnke a vision of a blood-washed Africa-a continent washed in the blood of Jesus Christ-which filled him with a burning commitment to win the continent for Jesus, says CfaN.
More than 76 million event attendees accepted Christ as Savior according to the registered decision cards since 1987.
Bonnke, looking towards November, says: "The Lord spoke to me, that I should go back for one more crusade in Africa. I want not only to see a gigantic harvest of souls, but to pass my burning torch to this generation. Recently, I travelled to Lagos, Nigeria to meet with the spiritual leadership there and they gave their unanimous support. I believe God is going to do something I have never seen before."
