Joseph George was born in Plaistow, East London on 29/04/73. His full name is Joseph Jaiyeola Babajide George. His parents took him to Nigeria when he was two. He was brought up by his grandmum after his parents’ divorce at the age of five. His grandmum used to take him and his other cousins to church occasionally for Christmas, Easter, Christenings and Special events. So he grew up believing in God. A film entitled ‘King of Kings’ also made a remarkable impact on him as a child. Reading a compilation about the accomplishments of British missionaries in Africa also made a huge impression on him as a child.
When he was eleven, some cousins came to Nigeria from Northampton, England and told him and his cousins about the need to be Born-again and told them it was not enough believing Jesus but they had to invite Him to be their personal Lord and Saviour. He asked Jesus into his heart and got filled with the Holy-Ghost. This was however just before he went to High School. So on getting to Secondary School, he backslid because he wanted to be one of the guys and being a Christian was not looked upon as being cool for teenagers.
In his teens, he went on and off to a Church called Scripture Pasture Christian Centre – an Independent Charismatic church. On the 22nd of January 1989, he went to church casually that Sunday. One of the Elders was preaching an Evangelistic Message. He preached about the cross and what Jesus had suffered for the whole of mankind. This message challenged Joseph profoundly but he did not respond to the altar call. He was challenged about the double life he was living. If Christ was willing to give His all why was he holding back and not wanting to give his all.
A few weeks later, another friend challenged him in school using Rev.3:15 to confront him about not being hot or cold but being Lukewarm. So he made the choice to live all out for Christ, joined the Christian Union and became an active member of Scripture Pasture Christian Centre. After his Baptism in water, his christian Life took off. He later went on to be one of the Junior Leaders in Church.
He flew to the United Kingdom in 1992 and became a member of a church called Universal Pentecostal Church. He later became a Sunday School teacher in the church. He went to Bangor University to study Banking, Insurance and Finance. He was an active member of the Christian Union and went on to be Treasurer between 1997-1998 on the Executive Committee.
After University, He started working for the Assemblies of God church in Bangor as a Student Worker between 1998-2008. It was during this spell at Bangor A.O.G that he got involved in Missions, Evangelism, Preaching, Teaching, Using gifts of the Spirit, Schools Work, Youth Work and taking part in outreach in general. Fullness of Life Ministries was launched on the 18th of June 2009 after an attempt to become an Evangelist in a church did not materialize but God reminded Joseph of the vision given to him on the 18th of June 2003 to set up his own ministry while in a time of fasting and prayer. Joseph obtained a Masters degree in Missions and Evangelism in 2012 and has gone on to serve in different Churches and Ministries. In addition to being the Founder/Leader of Fullness of Life Ministries, he is currently a Church Planter with Chapel, Wales and a Youth Worker. Joseph is happily married to Sian and they have a daughter named Alaw and a son called Caleb.
