Last Sabbath morning, 3 June 2023, André Lutters passed away peacefully. André lost the short battle with cancer at the age of 84.
Born on 9 July 1938 in Blankenberge, he was hired as a pastor at the Federation in 1965. In 1971, he was finally ordained as a pastor and in 1993, his pastorate as a Federation employee came to an end, but he remained a very active pastor. He took hundreds of people to Biblical countries, especially thanks to the “Bible & Archaeology” trips he organised brilliantly. His passion for travelling combined perfectly with his passion for the Gospels, and the many experiences he gained in the Holy Land and during his Bible seminars will remain a powerful testimony for generations to come.
André died last Sabbath and this special day of rest also gives us the assurance of a future rebirth. It is with this hope that we send our most sincere condolences to his wife Irmgard, their three children and family, and the Church of Antwerp. The funeral service took place on Friday, 9 June.
