Christ for all Nations Marks 50 Years with 50 Gospel Campaigns

Christ for All Nations
Jan. 8, 2024

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 8, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- 2024 is a milestone year for Christ for all Nations, marking 50 years since the ministry's inception in 1974. Founded by the late Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, and now led by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, Christ for all Nations (CfaN) has an astonishing track record in mass campaign evangelism, particularly across the African continent.

Known best for their massive gospel campaigns in Africa, CfaN tracks and documents salvation decisions through the use of signed decision cards that are used to connect new converts with local churches. By that count, they have now seen nearly 90 million people choose to follow Jesus Christ over the past five decades.

To celebrate this remarkable anniversary, CfaN will be pushing harder than ever before, conducting 50 gospel campaigns in Africa in a single year! This far surpasses the maximum number of evangelistic events CfaN has done in a year before. It is nevertheless possible because of the intense expansion that has happened in the ministry since the start of this decade, all part of CEO Kolenda's "Decade of Double Harvest" vision, which seeks to see 150 million salvations documented by 2030.

A vital part of that vision is to "multiply and collaborate" through the training and sending out of thousands of evangelists. This is done through various CfaN initiatives such as Fire Camps and Schools of Evangelism, and especially through their elite mass evangelism training ground, the 3-month CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp. Graduates of the program are themselves able to conduct outreaches and plan major events, and many of the more than 1,700 trained thus far will be involved in the 50th-anniversary campaigns.

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke was known for his prophetic rallying cry; "From Cape Town to Cairo, Africa shall be saved!" In honor of that mandate, the year's events will be launched in Cape Town, South Africa, on February 18th. This date holds historical significance for the Christ for all Nations team, as it was the day their famous "Big Tent" (then the largest mobile structure in the world seating 30,000) was dedicated to God in 1984. Within only two years, the ministry outgrew the tent, and the era of true mass evangelism began for CfaN, with over 100,000 attending a single service in Malawi in 1986. They have never looked back since, growing from strength to strength and witnessing moments like a million people attending a single service in Lagos in 2000.

To help fund the campaigns, CfaN will be hosting some one-of-a-kind fundraisers throughout the year, beginning with a 5-day African safari to the famous Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe with CfaN's Vice President, Reverend Peter Vandenberg. Vandenberg was Reinhard Bonnke's right-hand man for decades and continues to serve alongside Evangelist Kolenda. This is an opportunity for friends of the ministry to enjoy deep fellowship while supporting the 50 evangelistic campaigns. Further opportunities for ministry partners to support the 50 events include sponsoring a gospel campaign, hosting an interest party for churches and other groups, or donating towards the costs of the 50 evangelistic events.

CfaN's first campaigns for 2024 will happen in Aba, Nigeria, where the team will conduct four giant evangelistic events in under 2 weeks, maximizing every resource. By the end of the year, CfaN will have conducted campaigns in southern, eastern, western, and northern Africa, including some areas that have previously been off-limits to the organization. Their desire and intent are to see the documented salvation count reach 100 million by the end of 2024.

Says Kolenda, "The vision for 2024 is going to require 'all hands on deck,' not only from our team worldwide, but from every financial partner of the ministry as well. Together, we will see prophecy fulfilled and a greater harvest than we've ever witnessed before."
