All nine people aboard a small plane were killed after it crashed Sunday on approach to the island of Grand Bahama, the government of the Bahamas said.
The crash happened as people gathered on the island for an annual Christian leadership conference, the Associated Press added.
Munroe is described by Charisma News as an internationally-known author, Bible teacher, governmental consultant and leadership mentor.
A note on Munroe's ministry Facebook page reads: "On behalf of Myles Munroe International and ITWLA. We would like to inform you that the Global Leadership Forum will continue. The Forum will be for two and a half days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning). This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep his family and the ministry in prayers."
The Lear 36 Executive Jet had departed from Nassau, according to a statement from the Ministry of Transport and Aviation, the AP said. The plane crashed about 5 p.m. local time while attempting to land at Grand Bahama International Airport, the AP said.
The Department of Civil Aviation reported that the plane was destroyed, the statement said. The cause of the crash is unknown, but the AP added that there had been heavy rain in the area.
Police and rescue teams were on the scene and a full investigation was to begin at daylight.
