Morris Cerullo, an American evangelist, has passed away at 88.
The preacher breathed his last on Saturday in San Diego, California in the United States.
The cause of his death has not been announced by his family.
Born on October 2, 1931, Cerullo is widely known for his Christian teachings across different parts of the world.
The televangelist was the founder of ‘Victory Today’, a television programme, dedicated to Christian and inspirational teachings.
The deceased was also an author with over 80 books written by him.
Mike Okonkwo, founder and presiding bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission, took to his social media page to pen a tribute to the deceased.
“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,” he wrote on Twitter.

In his tribute, Johnson Suleman, president of Omega Fire Ministries in Nigeria, described the impact Cerullo had as “undeniable”.
“He started ministering as a child but ministered to over one billion people around the world, made such a huge and undeniable impact. Redefined evangelism with great passion. Death is not a tragedy, an unfulfilled life is,” he wrote.
His death further stretches the list of prominent figures who have passed on since the dawn of the year 2020.
