New Zealand Pentecostal Pastor Neville Johnson suddenly died on September 1, 2019.
Neville was born in the UK in 1940, but became a resident of New Zealand. He had a strong prophetic gift, which he shared through The Academy of Light, which he founded. The Academy published a quarterly newsletter. He also ran the Living Word Foundation from Australia.
His son posted the following announcement on their website.
On Sunday, the 1st of September 2019, Neville (my dad) passed away peacefully after a very short and aggressive illness. Neville found great strength in his faith and relationship with the Lord throughout. Dad and mum faithfully served the Lord for over 50 years. Dads’ earthly ministry has come to an end but his heavenly ministry has just begun.
I have spent time with the Lord in reflection of the sudden loss of dad and remember him with such love and admiration. I will be moving into a more active role in the ministry. My hope is to be effective for the Lord in these end times by spreading the Word of God so He may equips us all.
The Academy of Light school ‘Moving Further with the Lord’ will be run as planned for February 2020 with Bruce Allen, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, Jo Sweet, and Andy Tiplady teaching. An additional speaker is yet to be confirmed. We will provide an update when finalised on the information page. We are looking forward to what God has for the attendees.
Our family would like to thank people for their words of sympathy and kindness; as well as their prayers for strength and comfort. We request any condolences be sent to Johnson.firstname.lastname@example.org so these can be easily collated for our family to read.
As a private and humble man, Neville’s committal service will be conducted with family and close friends as per his wishes. We understand peoples need to gather in times such as this so we encourage you to seek support from God and those around you.
On behalf of my mum, Jo, and our family we extend our love and gratitude.
