Today 11th July, 2020 heaven’s gate opens up to welcome Dr. Evangelist Morris Cerullo at age 88, a great man who was fully dedicated to God’s work.

HIS MINISTERIAL ACHIEVEMENTS
Dr. Cerullo started preaching as young as age 17 and by 1960 he was conducting meetings abroad with thousands in attendance receiving Jesus and getting their miracles. At age 30 he began the School of Ministry aimed at teaching people how to spread the gospel of Jesus to their nations. These ministers later on established their ministry in their own country spreading the gospel all over.
Dr Cerullo was also known for his humanitarian activities. He provided medical assistance in East Africa, aid to Ethiopia and helped build orphanages in Mexico.
In 1990, Cerullo purchased, from the United States Federal Bankruptcy Court in Columbia, South Carolina, the assets of Jim Bakker’s bankrupt ministry, PTL.These assets included the Heritage USA Christian theme park in Fort Mill, South Carolina which he purchased in partnership with Malayan United Industries (Berhad).
He also travelled as a missionary, and in the 2014 World Conference, he stated that God told him that ‘Prophets never retire!’ In 2015, at the age of 83, Cerullo toured Africa for nine days, during which time he held meetings in six African countries, preaching, holding training sessions and meeting with political leaders.
Dr Evangelist Morris Cerullo received the Lifetime Global Impact Award from Empower21 World Conference and gathering of ministers and pastors in Israel.
Cerullo purchased the PTL’s cable television network, The Inspirational Network, which was renamed INSP-The Inspiration Network and transferred into a new, separate entity, The Inspiration Networks. Cerullo’s son, David, has served as the corporation’s president and CEO, and as a member of its board of directors since its formation. In 2005 he was elected to serve as its chairman. The organization, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is currently building a new multi-million dollar broadcast headquarters facility known as “CrossRidge” in Lancaster County, South Carolina. This was opened on March 1, 2009. Cerullo and his son David were both featured in a 2009 Charlotte Observer article.
While looking forward to this day:
1 Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
We will keep celebrating you Evangelist Morris Cerullo here on Earth.
