The funeral of world renowned pastor Dr Myles Munroe and his wife is to be held on December 4.
He was travelling on a light aircraft with his wife, Ruth, when it crashed on approach to Grand Bahama International Airport earlier this month.
Dr Richard H Pinder, a Senior Vice President and Pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries Fellowship Church, also died in the crash – his funeral will be held on December 2.
Bahamas Faith Ministries International, which Dr Munroe founded, has confirmed there will be a National Memorial Service of Thanksgiving & Praise the night before his funeral.
The funeral service will be held at Bahamas Faith Ministries International Diplomat Centre on the island.
In a statement the ministry said: "We have literally been flooded with calls and well wishes from all over the world.
"We have also received a number of phone calls from several Head of States including Presidents of Countries, Prime Ministers as well as well known Pastors, Singers, Actors and Dignitaries expressing their sympathies and who have all indicated a commitment to attend."

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
