He hailed from a traditional Marthomite family and all members of his family were active in Sunday School, Choir and other activities of the church. His mother was a pious woman and she was the motivating force in his prayer life.
During a Pentecostal prayer meeting at the age of seventeen, Pr. Tinu George decided to accept Jesus Christ as his personal saviour and took water baptism. Later in college days, he earned many of his friends for Jesus Christ. He dedicated his life for Jesus Christ and began to fast for long periods. During one of these fasting days, he attended a meeting of an anointed man of God and got baptized in Holy spirit. There he received the gift of healing.
He preached as an evangelist in many places after graduation. Later, while in the Middle East, in the year 2006, he was ordained as Pastor by the great man of God Rev. Dr. Roger Hosma, Atlanta, USA.
