World-renowned evangelist Morris Cerullo, President of faith-based organization, Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, is embarking next month upon a courageous 9-day tour throughout the continent of Africa.
This 83-year-old Christian statesman and international evangelist has been traveling to the developing nations of the world for 68 years. He has dedicated his life to helping hurting people. This 9-day trip to Africa will include training meetings in the following cities: Lome, Togo; Cotonou, Benin; Lagos, Nigeria; Libreville, Gabon; Kinshasa, Congo; and Douala, Cameroon.
This tireless octogenarian will also consult with political leaders of these African nations to discuss economic aid, food and medicine for the beleaguered countries hit hardest by poverty, as well as political and economic corruption. Over the past six decades, Morris Cerullo has met with numerous heads of state who have requested mentorship, prayer and spiritual counsel. A number of these leaders claim their beginnings at Morris Cerullo's training sessions, held at the former El Cortez Hotel in downtown San Diego. Morris Cerullo has continually consulted these pastoral and governmental leaders who now conduct humanitarian aid in their own countries through feeding, medical care and education programs for orphans, school children and the poor.
Morris Cerullo World Evangelism is known for its humanitarian support and has provided aid to Ethiopia, medical assistance in East Africa and helped build multiple orphanages in Mexico. Most recently, Morris and his wife, Theresa Cerullo, partnered with Tommy and Matthew Barnett to build several floors of the Los Angeles Dream Center that houses 200 women who have come off the streets of Los Angeles, out of drugs, human trafficking and prostitution. The floor is called Mama Theresa's Place in honor of Theresa Cerullo.
Moving to San Diego in 1959, they incorporated Morris Cerullo World Evangelism in 1961. Today, the San Diego headquarters employs 100 people locally, and also has offices in Texas, Canada, the United Kingdom, Holland and Paris. For decades, Morris Cerullo has conducted major conferences and training seminars in San Diego, training more than 4 million people around the world, and bringing tens of thousands of people to the city from over 50 nations of the world.
