Good Bye Myles : Myles Munroe And Wife Ruth Laid To Rest In Bahamas [IN PICTURES]

The Bahamas – People from all walks of life — locally and internationally — assembled at the Diplomat Centre for a Celebration of Life for the late Dr. Myles Munroe and Pastor Ruth Ann Munroe, on Thursday, December 4, 2014.

Leading the list of dignitaries and guests at The State-Recognized Funeral were: Her Excellency Dame Marguerite Pindling, Governor General; The Rt. Hon. Perry Christie, Prime Minister, and Mrs. Bernadette Christie; Leader of the Opposition Dr. Hubert Minnis; Senators, Members of Parliament, Senior Government Officials, members of the Diplomatic Corps and leaders of the international religious community.


Dr. Myles Munroe was senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship, where his wife Ruth Ann Munroe served as co-senior pastor. The couple died November 9, 2014 when their private jet crashed into the Grand Bahama Ship Yard. Also on board that ill-fated aircraft were Dr. Richard Pinder, Pastors Lavard & Radel Parks and their son Johanan Parks all of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship; pilots Frakhan Cooper and Captain Stanley Thurston and American Diego DeSantiago.

Tributes were paid in liturgical dancing, praise and worship, with special selections by Vision singing the remake “ Brand New World, and the Original Visionaires singing “ Living With Jesus on the Other Side’”– the group Dr. Munroe was a part of in the early 70s. Grammy Award-winning Gospel recording artist CeCe Winans also rendered “ Don’t Cry for Me” – one of the Winans’ greatest hits.

Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Perry Christie revered Dr. Munroe as “a man who never forgot his roots; a man who was passionately involved in Bahamian nation-building and who played an important part in that process over the course of more than three decades.”

He added, “So, let us make no mistake about it therefore, while Dr Myles Munroe was unquestionably a globalist, an internationalist, in scope of his Christian ministry and in the reach of his teachings and travels, he was at the same time a profoundly committed nationalist; a Bain town-bred Bahamian through and through.”

Senior Pastor Dave Burrows of BFMI said, ”We are gathered here to pay our final respects and tributes to two extraordinary human beings. Today, in some ways we are saddened but in other ways, we celebrate lives of purpose and destiny.”

He best described Dr. Myles Monroe, his mentor, as “a transformer; [in] that through his relationship with God and in his pursuits, no one he encountered was left without being transformed.” And in Referencing the Bible, Pastor Burrows described Ruth Ann Munroe as “a good thing.”

The Munroes left two children son, Chairo (Myles Jr.) and daughter Charisa who likened their parents to a ‘king and queen.’

“We have lost one of the greatest fathers and mothers; and… king and queen, who have ever lived,” she said.

“Yet is it only by faith that I can stand here before and declare with much authority that Pastor Myles and Ruth Ann Munroe are not dead but are buried alive in me and my brother.”

She said that their parents were born into a life of purpose and they died fulfilling that purpose. “They transformed people into leaders and leaders into agents of change.”

It is my personal passion, dedication and commitment to help as many people as possible discover and fulfill their original purpose for life and maximize their true and full potential.
I will give all my energy, time, talent and gifts to serve the success of others.
They deserve the best and I want to give it” – Dr. Myles Munroe

The lives of the Munroes, who died along with seven others in a fiery jet crash in the Bahamas on Sunday, Nov. 9, will be celebrated during a five-hour event at Thomas Robinson Stadium in the Bahamas.

Kevin Harris, spokesman for the Bahamas Faith Ministries founded by Munroe, said that while there will be speeches, music and singing among a number of activities, fans of the Munroes will not be allowed to view the bodies out of respect for the family. He said the family made the decision not to have an open casket after they had identified the bodies.

“They were IDed by all the family members, and all the family have confirmed that there will be a closed casket ceremony,” said Harris.

The bodies of the renowned evangelical pastor and his wife, along with three of seven others, including senior vice president and fellowship pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries Richard Pinder, and pilots Captain Stanley Thurston and First Officer Frahkan Cooper, who died with them on Nov. 9 were returned home to family and friends in the island’s capital of New Providence Monday in preparation for multiple memorials and funerals.

    ― Myles Munroe, Waiting and Dating

  3. “People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.”
    ― Myles Munroe, Understanding Your Potential

  4. “Being open to correction means making ourselves vulnerable, and many people are not willing to do that.”
    ― Myles Munroe, Waiting and Dating

5.“One of the greatest tragedies in life is to watch potential die untapped.”
― Myles Munroe

6.“A woman may be beautiful but have poor character. A man may be a business genius, making money left and right, but lack common courtesy, sensitivity, and compassion.”
― Myles Munroe, Waiting and Dating

  1. “God did not create woman from man’s head, that he should command her, nor from his feet, that she should be his slave, but rather from his side, that she should be near his heart.”
    ― Myles Munroe, The Purpose and Power of Love & Marriage

8.”Hard work and diligence are essential to success, but they require an internal motivation. That internal motivation is Vision”

  1. “Vision is a conception that is inspired by God in the hearts of Human”

10.”God loves dreamers”

11.You need to treat your finances as a resource God has provided to fulfil your vision, not a tool to fill your life with luxuries”

12.You are not saved for the sole purpose of going to heaven; you are saved to finish your assignment on earth”
