The World Evangelical Alliance is very sad to learn of the death of Dr. Alfred Neufeld. During his ministry he made a very significant contribution to evangelical unity both in his country, as the founder and promoter of the Association of Evangelical Churches of Paraguay, and in his continent as a founding member of the Latin Evangelical Alliance and then globally as a member of the International Council of the World Evangelical Alliance from 2008-2016. His invaluable contribution to the evangelical cause globally was the result of in his prior devotion to unity locally and regionally.
John Langlois, member emeritus of the International Council, said: “He was rooted in the local church. His deep theological roots and solid biblical scholarship gave the members of the WEA confidence in knowing we had a colleague grounded in the eternal truths of God’s word. He was a gentle giant in the faith who will be missed by many but whose influence will continue through his writings. We wish Alfred’s family God’s abiding comfort and blessing at this time of loss but with the certain knowledge that we shall be with Alfred for eternity.”
