to feed a world
– Banning Liebscher
Reinhard Bonnke Christ For All Nations
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is principally known for his Great Gospel Crusades throughout the Continent of Africa. The son of a pastor, Reinhard gave his life to the Lord at age nine, and heard the call to the African mission field before he was even a teenager. After attending Bible College in Wales, and his ordination in Germany he pastored a church and then went on to start missionary work in Africa. It was there, in the small mountain kingdom of Lesotho, that God placed upon his heart the vision of ‘the continent of Africa, being washed in the precious Blood of Jesus’ – an entire continent, from Cape Town to Cairo and from Dakar to Djibouti that needed to be reached and to hear the proclamation of the signs-following Gospel.
He began holding meetings in a tent that accommodated just 800 people, but, as attendance steadily increased, larger and larger tents had to be purchased, until finally, in 1984, he commissioned the construction of the world’s largest mobile structure – a tent capable of seating 34,000 people! Soon, attendance at his meetings even exceeded the capacity of this huge structure, and he began open-air Gospel Campaigns with an initial gathering of over 150,000 people per service! Since then, he has conducted city- wide meetings across the continent with as many as 1,600,000 people attending a single meeting using towering sound systems that can be heard for miles. It has now been some thirty-five years since Reinhard Bonnke founded the international ministry of Christ for all Nations (CfaN), which currently has offices in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Africa, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.

Culture Project Panelists
Jesus Culture w/ Kim Walker-Smith & Chris Quilala
Jesus Culture worship is fronted by Kim Walker-Smith and Chris Quilala with Ian McIntosh playing keys, Jeffrey Kunde as the lead guitarist, Brandon Aaronson as the bassist, Josh Fisher as the drummer, and Skyler Smith as acoustic guitarist. Each member of the team knows the weight of the call God on their lives and they live devoted to a lifestyle of worship, hoping that their music can help lead all those who hear it into an experience of His presence that won’t leave them the same.
For Martin Smith, endings aren’t all they seem. In 2009 he came to the closing of a two-decade career spent with the genre-defining band Delirious. With Dove awards, Grammy nominations and RIAA certified gold selling status behind him, it was an incredible journey. Having written many of the church’s best-loved songs – including I Could Sing of Your Love Forever, Shout to the North and Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble? – Martin remains rooted in the local church. And having pulled together many of the world’s leading worship leaders to give their time and talent for free with the CompassionArt charity project, Martin instinctively calls out for people to become a ‘voice’ for those who do not have one. Today, what lies ahead is bold and exciting.
