Christopher Tonge pays tribute to TB Joshua on first death anniversary

Brother Chris Christopher Tonge

Christopher Tonge, a former senior member of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has paid tribute to the church’s late founder Prophet TB Joshua.

Brother Chris, as he is popularly known, posted his tribute on social media on Sunday, the first anniversary of Joshua’s death.

Joshua died on Saturday, June 5, 2021, exactly a week before his 58th birthday.

Chris, who left SCOAN in September after Joshua’s widow Pastor Evelyn Joshua emerged as the church’s new leader, now runs a ministry called God’s Heart TV.

Tagging the post “My Tribute to Prophet TB Joshua”, Chris said: “One year ago, God summoned His servant Prophet TB Joshua to come home and rest, one year ago, he closed his eyes to all things in this world and opened them in a world of eternal glory, one year ago, one of God’s Generals of our generation left his beautiful footprints on the sands of time.

“I know the term ‘Man of God’ has been watered down in today’s society when compared to what we read in the Bible. But if ever such words were to appropriately describe someone in our generation today, it would be Prophet TB Joshua – a real MAN OF GOD! Not a religious man, a traditional man or a materially-minded man. A man driven by conviction, not convention.”

Brother Chris added that he was privileged to call Joshua his mentor, describing the late televangelist as “A man who rekindled the flames of practical Christianity, who made the Bible come alive, who demonstrated the union of the Word and the Spirit. A man I have the privilege to call my mentor, my role model, my hero in Christ.”

He ended by saying words are simply insufficient to express all God has used Prophet TB Joshua to do.

According to Chris “I will let my words be few, knowing the greatest tribute I can give is not just with my lips – but with my life.”
