NASSAU, Bahamas, November 9, 2014 (AMG) — Dr. Myles Munroe, leader of the Bahamas Faith Ministries, his wife Ruth and an entourage of seven are dead following a plane crash in Grand Bahama earlier this afternoon.
According to Tribune reports, Munroe was among nine people on a Lear 36 executive jet which crashed into a crane at Grand Bahama shipyard while making an approach for landing at Grand Bahama International Airport. The jet was en route from Lynden Pindling Airport.
The popular televangelist and his entourage were headed to the Global Leadership Forum, which Munroe was to host this week in Freeport. A posting on Munroe’s Facebook page said the event would go on for two and a half days. “This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep his family and the ministry in prayers,” the post said.
Dr. Richard H. Pinder, a Senior Vice President and Pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries Fellowship Church, also died in the crash.
An investigation into the crash will be undertaken by Bahamian officials tomorrow morning.
