1931/32-

American evangelist

Cerullo was born the fifth child of a Jewish family but his mother died when he was very young and his father placed him in an Orthodox orphanage. One of the staff there converted him to evangelical Christianity when he was 14. He says that two angelic beings transported him to Heaven, where he met God face to face and was told he would be able to foretell the future.

By 15 he was a preacher, but he wasn't ordained until he was 19 - possibly the youngest person ever ordained by the Assemblies of God. Although his financial affairs have made him controversial, he has a world-wide following and regularly preaches to congregations of tens of thousands. He heads two organizations: Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, and Jewish World Outreach, and is particularly concerned with evangelizing other Jews.
