Dr Morris Cerullo was raised in a Jewish Orthodox orphanage in New Jersey. He had lost his parents at a tender age.
Born October 2, 1931, Cerullo would have been 89 years by October 2 of this year (2020). He gave his life to Christ at the age of 14. By age 15, he had started ministry preaching in local churches. He later attended New York Metropolitan Bible School in Suffern, New York. He also holds two honorary doctorates from Florida Beacon College and Oral Roberts University.
After eight years of ministry, he went on his first overseas missions trip to Greece, and his international ministry was born. He had so much presence in Latin America and Africa. He perhaps did more of foreign missions than the United States where he lived.
