Born on June 12th 1963 in Ondo State, Nigeria, T.B. Joshua's journey is a humbling story of how God raised a young man from a poverty-stricken home to lead an international ministry that would attract thousands worldwide to witness the reality of God's power today. 

In August 2016, Prophet T.B. Joshua visited the land of the Bible - Israel, Bethlehem and Greece! He was invited to Israel by ZAKA, an international humanitarian organisation who recognised the charitable work undertaken by Emmanuel TV Partners worldwide.

About Him:

He was born on 12 th June, 1963 in the small town of Arigidi, in Akoko in the State of Ondo, Nigeria. The pregnancy of his mother was not ordinary because it lasted for 15 months. Almost one hundred years before the birth, people had spoken about a young man who would come from the poor neighbourhood od Oosin and God would use him powerfully.

Another event took place three days after his birth, a great stone flew across his chest as it crashed into the house narrowly missing the baby and fell down a few centimetres away. This incident made his mother call him TEMITOPE , meaning, what you have done for me is worthy of thanks.

During his life in St. Stephen’s Anglican Primary School in Arigidi, he was a leader  of the Student Christian Fellowship. He was the smallest in the class but he read all the prayers in school. He was known as Small Pastor. He could not finish his secondary studies because of poverty.

During Childhood: I found myself in a family environment that irritated me. I was born into poverty. Poverty had a gread influence in our family. The education we received was not enough. What I have was the results of my own self effort.

I know so many people with similar circumstances who did otherwise. They quit their situations and their dreams crashed on the rocks of sadness. When he was very young, he knew how much hee needed God. For that reason, he did not allow his environment to hurt relationship with God.
