Reinhard Bonnke of Reinhard Bonnke Ministries (born 1940 Königsberg, East Prussia) is a German charismatic Christian evangelist.
Bonnke claims that his crusades have resulted in the conversions of over 10 million people to Christianity between 1995 and 2000, with a further 38 million from 2001 to 2005.
Bonnke was a speaker at the 2008 Planetshakers youth conference in Australia.
One of the most noteworthy miracles said to have occurred during a Reinhard Bonnke crusade happened in December 2001 at the Grace of God Mission Church in Onitsha, Nigeria.
Pastor Daniel Ekechukwu said that he was certified dead for at least forty-two hours before returning miraculously to life there. A video was produced and distributed, entitled "Raised from the Dead" detailing this occurrence, featuring testimony from eyewitness accounts.
Bonnke has written many books and claims 178 million copies printed in 158 different languages have been sold or provided at no charge.
He was reportedly born-again at the age of 9.
He studied at The Bible College of Wales in Swansea and pastored in Germany for seven years. He began his ministry in Africa, with which he is principally identified, preaching in Lesotho in 1967. He has subsequently held large evangelical meetings across the continent.
Bonnke's visit to Kano in Nigeria in 1991 was blamed for the outbreak of riots in the city, as Muslims protested about reported uncomplimentary remarks he had made about Islam in the city of Kaduna on his way to Kano.
In the early 1990s Bonnke, who had uttered a number of prophecies of a major world revival which would start in the UK, was involved in an initiative called Minus to Plus, which aimed to reverse the decline in church attendances in the United Kingdom.
The initiative, which involved the distribution of millions of copies of a booklet to homes throughout the country, was hoped to 'win' 250,000 converts. However, only 20,000 were 'won over', and these were mostly those returning to the faith rather than coming to it for the first time, and church attendances continued to decline.

In Holy Spirit Revelation and Revolution, international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke invites you to break your bonds and encounter the meaning and miracles of the Spirit. Don't wait--it will change your life and refresh your faith.
Having lead multiple crusades in Africa and Asia Bonnke has seen the amazing power of the Spirit change circumstances and lives dramatically. But the Holy Spirit's power isn't just for people on the other side of the world. God has more in store for you, through the Spirit and His gifts.
On one level, these dramatic stories are a testimony to the life and work of Reinhard Bonnke (bon-kay). The awesome numbers of souls eternally changed by the Cross of Jesus Christ through Bonnke's preaching are incredible by any human standard.
Yet Reinhard is quick to give credit where credit is due--from "zero to hero" he often says, referring to God's grace poured into his life and ministry. This theme of empowering grace pushes each story to a higher level. Everyone has a dream, or perhaps had a dream.
These are stories of real people, Reinhard included, who through failure, weakness, and just bad circumstances watched their dreams evaporate. But God was not finished. He had even greater plans prepared for them, as He has even greater plans for you. His grace is freely given.
