Evangelist Daniel Kolenda is a fifth generation preacher who received a calling to take the Gospel to the nations as a young boy. As a teenager, his life was radically changed after an extraordinary encounter with God's power that ignited a passionate burden for the lost.
After graduating from the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry in Pensacola and Southeastern University in Lakeland, he went into church planting and pastoral ministry before launching out onto the evangelistic field.
It was at one of Reinhard Bonnke's Great African Crusades, that Daniel first saw the massive crowds of people being saved, healed and filled with the Holy Spirit. And it was there that the Lord renewed the burden in him to take the Gospel to the nations. In obedience to God's voice, Daniel launched out into full-time, evangelistic ministry through International Gospel campaigns and conferences.
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 10 nations globally.
Daniel ministers around the world preaching a single minded Gospel message followed by signs and wonders. CfaN has counted in excess of 17 million decisions for Christ as a result of Daniel's commitment to proclaim the Good News!
As a previous successful pastor and church planter Daniel holds a tireless commitment and dedication to the church. He is a gifted teacher with a heart to equip the body of Christ. This inspired him in recent years to author several books including Your Kingdom Come, Surviving Your Wilderness and Live Before You Die.
