Hank Unplugged: Essential Christian Conversations

The Most Significant Christian Leader of Our Generation with Metropolitan K.P. Yohannan


Our guest on this episode is the most significant Christian leader of our generation—at least in the opinion of Hank Hanegraaff. On May 8th this leader—Metropolitan Yohan, also known as K.P. Yohannan—fell asleep in the Lord. Hank opens the podcast by paying tribute to a man who not only revolutionized world missions but was also one of Hank’s closest friends and mentors. This memorial is followed by an encore presentation of their last conversation on this podcast. We hope that it will richly bless your life and open your heart, soul, and mind to the mission of Metropolitan Yohan—to fulfill the great commission and reach every corner of our world with the transformational love of Christ.Metropolitan Yohan was the founder and director of GFA World—one of the largest mission operations in the world—and author of numerous books including Revolution in World Missions. On this podcast from 2022, they discuss the various mission outreaches of GFA World across the globe along with an opportunity for young adults to get involved through the Set Apart Conference, an annual Seven-Day Retreat for Young Adults hosted by GFA World in Dallas, Texas every summer—this year Set Apart will be June 3–9, 2024.Click here for information on CRI’s role as part of our Going Global 10/40 Window Training.https://www.equip.org/product/going-global-10-40-window-training-support/ Topics discussed include: Remembering K.P.
