With hearts full of emotion, we must announce that Rev. Ike made his transition on
July, 28, 2009. He was an extraordinary man, and we’ve lost a loved and
respected leader, husband, father, and teacher. We will all miss him terribly but,
without a doubt, Rev. Ike will continue to live on through his timeless teachings, and through his students.
We want to thank all of Rev. Ike’s faithful members and supporters around the world for helping to
keep his memory alive by sharing his Prosperity philosophy with others, and by
helping us to keep this Prayer Ministry strong through your generous support.
The outpouring of love and condolences from Rev. Ike’s friends, admirers, and
members of his Church family all over the world is genuinely appreciated. Rev. Ike
always said that when he left this earth for his journey to the Other Side, he did not
want a funeral, but instead, asked that people celebrate his life.
According to Rev. Ike’s wishes, his son, Bishop Xavier Frederick Eikerenkoetter III,
will carry on his vision as the leader of Rev. Ike Ministries. Further communication from
the family will be forthcoming as we carry onward and upward, and as we ensure
that the Ministries Rev. Ike founded and worked so hard to build will continue to bless millions for generations to come.
In the meantime, to all who have expressed well wishes though your kind words,
thoughts, and prayers, we’d like to convey our deepest gratitude. Please continue to
uplift Rev. Ike’s entire family in prayer as we join together in thoughts of love for
our beloved teacher and pastor.
We trust the media will respect the family’s privacy as we honor him privately during
this difficult time.
