Morris Cerullo World Evangelism has publicly announced the passing of Mother Theresa Cerullo. Morris Cerullo passed July 10, 2020 and his wife passed July 30, 2022.
After eight years of ministering in the United States, Morris embarked on his first overseas missions trip to Greece (described above). That was the birth place of an international ministry that would eventually take him to more than 110 nations worldwide.
As these evangelical outreaches grew, Morris remembered his Jewish roots. Having been born to an Italian father and a Russian Jewish Orthodox mother, he always carried a passion for Israel with him. In 1967, God spoke to Morris, “Son, now is the time to turn your eyes to the Middle East, and begin to work for My people, Israel.” This was the beginning of his lifelong effort to reach the people of the Holy Land for their Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus, the Christ, the Anointed One.
From the late 1960s until the 1980s, Morris’s endeavors included launching a radio ministry, developing a three-time Golden-Globe-winning TV special, Masada, and airing several television specials from historic sites in Israel. He contributed to the construction of The Pavilion in Jerusalem.
Dr. Cerullo continued to travel to Israel every year, from 1955 to 2019. He preached the Good News of Jesus Christ and provided assistance to churches and ministries in Israel so that they could expand their faithful outreaches. There is still a lot of persecution in Israel by the Orthodox priests against conversion.
