Reinhard Bonnke might have bid farewell to steering the ship at Christ for All Nations (CfaN), a ministry he started, but with his fiery passion for spreading God’s salvation, it may come as no surprise that Bonnke, ever passionate about winning souls for Jesus, will be leading a crusade at the Loftus Versefeld Stadium in Pretoria next week.
A G12 Africa Harvest Initiative, the crusade’s organisers from 3C Church in Centurion say they’re looking forward to packed stands at Loftus next Saturday with over 50 000 people expected to attend.
The crusade’s line-up includes pastors Ray McCauley and Cesar Castellanos, as well as Gospel artists Dr Tumi and Khaya Mthethwa.
“It’s all about winning souls,” says Jan Pretorius from 3C Church.
One such soul is Vuyiswa Murriel Saba who posted this on Facebook: “My Father in Christ, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. I got to know Christ in Meadowlands Soweto at one of his crusades, 1981.”
Another life touched by Bonnke’s ministry is Michael Emilio Mondlhane who wrote: “I also got to know Jesus through his crusade in Maputo, 1990.”
Go around Africa and such testimonies abound, reaching the tens of millions. In 2017 the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) reported that 75 913 155 people had come to Christ through the ministry of Reinhard Bonnke — According to CfaN that number has since gone well over 76 million.

Eager to pass on what he calls his “burning torch” to a new generation, Bonnke shows no signs of slowing down; He’s reported to have set his heart on winning another 150 million souls by 2027, using every avenue available including mobile technology such as social media, with a strong focus of reaching as many youth, in every nation, as possible.
South African international evangelist and Gateway News columnist Lindy-Ann Hopley will be at the Loftus crusade on Saturday February 23 and will be providing Gateway News readers with video coverage of the event the following week.
