Daniel Kolenda is a missionary evangelist, who has led more than 22-million people to Christ face-to-face through massive open-air evangelistic campaigns in some of the most dangerous, difficult and remote locations on earth. As the successor to world-renowned Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, Daniel is the president and CEO of Christ for All Nations – a ministry which has conducted some of the largest evangelistic events in history, has published over 190 million books in 104 languages and has offices in 14 nations around the world. He also hosts an internationally syndicated television program and is an author of eight books including the bestsellers, ‘Live Before You Die’, and ‘Slaying Dragons.’
Daniel is a gifted, fifth-generation preacher whose ministry is marked by a powerful evangelistic anointing and incredible miracles after the model of Jesus: Preaching, teaching and healing. The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear — he has even seen the dead raised — but most importantly, the poor have the gospel preached to them. It is this single-minded gospel emphasis that makes the ministry of Daniel Kolenda and Christ for all Nations so unique.
Daniel is a graduate of Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida and the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry in Pensacola, Florida, but his greatest education has come from the years of ministry side-by-side with his mentor and spiritual father Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. Together they have circled the globe preaching the Gospel with great effectiveness.
As a previous successful pastor and church planter Daniel holds a tireless commitment and dedication to the Church. More than half of the cost of every evangelistic campaign is invested in a “follow-up” system to see every convert become a faith-filled, fearless, disciple of Christ and member of a local church.
Daniel, with his wife Rebekah and their children, Elijah, Gloria, London, Lydia, and Benjamin reside in the Orlando area.
