The Global Leadership Forum will go on, just shorter than planned, according to post on Dr. Munroe’sFacebook page:

Dear Facebook Friends,

On behalf of Myles Munroe International and ITWLA. We would like to inform you that the Global Leadership Forum will continue. The Forum will be for two and a half days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning). This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep his family and the ministry in prayers.


Internationally acclaimed faith leader Dr. Myles Munroe, 60, founder and senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries, and his wife Ruth Monroe, married for 35 years, were killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon, reports

Nine people were aboard the ill-fated flight (pictured above). It has been confirmed that Bahamas Faith Ministries senior vice president and pastor, Richard Pinder was among those killed in the crash .The other victims have not been identified. One of the victims is reportedly Dr. and Mrs. Munroe’s daughter but that has not yet been confirmed.

Tribune242 reports:

The crash took place this afternoon and killed all nine people on board the private jet. The plane reportedly struck a crane at the Grand Bahama Ship Yard, exploding on impact and crashing into the ground near a junkyard area.

The Department of Civil Aviation reported that the plane was a Lear 36 executive jet which departed the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) for the Grand Bahama International Airport.

The plane left LPIA at 4.07pm with nine people on board and crashed while making an approach for landing at Grand Bahama International Airport at 5.10pm, the Department of Civil Aviation said.

A police on source on the island previously said two were feared dead. However, police sources later confirmed that all those on board had been killed.

Dr. Munroe, his wife and the other passengers were enroute to the Global Leadership Forum, an event organized and hosted by Munroe.

At the World Conference 2014, Dr. Munroe talked about how to “die effectively,” “live beyond the grave” and how to “secure your legacy and pass it on.” According to Munroe, “that is what you leave for people, your character.”

“Live in such a way,” Munroe said, “that you wouldn’t need a tombstone.”
