Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House, prolific author and legendary teacher of the Bible has died at the age of 83. Koinonia House announced the death of its Founder and retired Board Chairman, Dr. Charles W. “Chuck” Missler, on Tuesday 1 May 2018.

Chuck passed away peacefully at his home in Reporoa, New Zealand. He was preceded in death by his wife Nancy and his two sons, Charles “Chip” and Mark. He is survived by two daughters, Lisa Bright and Meshell Missler, and eight grandchildren.

Dr. Missler was fond of saying that he enjoyed two careers following his graduation from the United States Naval Academy and service in the armed forces: leading edge technology ventures and biblical studies. But he will be remembered most for his remarkable contribution to the study of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.

Dr. Missler gained international recognition as a Bible scholar, author and teacher. Through an informal affiliation with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California, Chuck became known for his insight into the integration of Scripture with science, history and prophecy.

Over more than forty years, literally millions of Dr. Missler’s teachings have been distributed and enjoyed by people all around the world. From cassette tapes to MP3 audio downloads, from VCR tapes to YouTube videos, the message of “The Grand Adventure” has been enjoyed by many.

After being a lifelong citizen of the United States, Dr. Missler immigrated to New Zealand in 2010 where he resided with his wife Nancy.
