Popular American evangelist, Dr Morris Cerullo is dead. He was 88. He died on Saturday, 11th July 2020.
Dr Murris started evangelising when he was 16. He would be remembered by many as a torchbearer.
Founder and Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, who has invited Cerullo several times for preaching duty paid his tribute to the preacher.
He wrote: “My father – Dr. Morris Cerullo! Like a good soldier of Christ, you fought a good fight, finished your course and kept the faith (2 Tim 4:7).
“Our consolation is that you lived an impactful life, raising men across the globe for Jesus. Adieu Papa Cerullo! We will miss you dearly.”
The preacher was born in New Jersey to a Russo-Jewish/Italian family. He attended and graduated from divinity school in New York state in 1953.
