Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, successor to the late Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, is expected to be in Warri, Delta State on February 13 for the Great Gospel Crusade.
Chairman, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Kingsley Enakirerhi, told journalists on Thursday in Warri that over one million worshipers are expected at the crusade.
Enakirerhi, who is also chairman, planning committee for the crusade, said Kolenda would lead the crusade till February 16.
According to him, the crusade was organised by the Christ for All Nations Ministry in Warri which was founded by the late Bonnke in 1975.
Bonnke was a German-American Pentecostal Evangelist, principally known for his gospel missions throughout Africa and had been an evangelist and missionary in Africa since 1967.
He died on December 7, 2019, in Orlando, Florida, US.
Enakirerhi said: “The crusade is being coordinated by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishops of Anglican Communion, Catholic Church, Baptists among others in Delta.
“We are witnesses to the great testimonies of Bonnke’s Ministry in Africa. We shall not forget how Bonnke held crusade in the 90s in Warri in the midst of the bitter Ijaw, Urhobo and Itsekiri crisis, and after his prayers, peace returned to Warri.
“Delta is privileged to be the first host of Great Gospel Crusade after the demise of Bonnke. So, we expect over one million people to attend when the crusade.
“We are mobilising vehicles to convey people from all the communities in Delta. Boats are also provided to bring people from riverine communities.”
He also said that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta would be the special guest of honour at the four-day event.
