Pentecostals pay tribute to international leader Dr Myles Munroe (Press Release)

The death of Dr Myles Munroe in a tragic plane crash in Bahamas last Sunday 9 November 2014 has led to an outpouring of grief among the Pentecostal and Charismatic Christian community in Britain and round the world.  All nine people on board the Lear 36 Executive Jet died in the crash, including Dr Munroe, his wife Ruth, their daughter Charisa and members of his Bahamas Faith Ministries International leadership team.  Munroe was an internationally renowned bestselling author, lecturer, teacher, life coach, government consultant, and leadership mentor. He was a frequent visitor to the UK.

Paying tribute, Dr Eric Brown, Churches Together in England Pentecostal President says, ‘It was my distinct privilege to invite Dr Munroe as keynote speaker to several of our Pastors and Key Leaders’ Conferences and on every occasion he spoke professionally and prophetically into the lives of our leaders.  Indeed he was a frequent keynote speaker to many of the Evangelical, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches in this country.  He was a gifted communicator, effective motivator, a man of faith and great courage and full of the Holy Spirit.  He was a giant of our time and his unique place in the history of the Christian Church is secured.’

President of CiC International and Free Churches Moderator Dr Hugh Osgood recalls hosting Dr Munroe in London: ‘I know that many British church leaders have been deeply impacted by the warmth and encouragement he brought with him every time he visited the UK. Myles and his ministry will be greatly missed.’

 

And Dr Joel Edwards, International Director of Micah Challenge says: ‘Dr Myles touched so many lives on so many issues across so many communities.  As comfortable with Prime Ministers as he was the people, he walked with Kings without losing the common touch.  The world mourns the loss of a man who revealed the mind and heart of God.’

Dr Munroe’s ministry transcended race, culture, denominational and national boundaries with a message aimed at empowering others to discover their God-given purpose. In his own words, ‘The greatest Tragedy in life is not death, but a life without purpose.’

May he and all who died rest in peace.

Ends.
