Rev. Dr. T. C George was born to a Brethren Family in the small town of Pathnapuram, Kerala in the Year 1932. At a young age, he felt the call of God upon his life and left home with just the clothes he had on. His zeal for God and His work was so much that he spent his initial years studying God’s Word and ministering with his uncle, Baby Varghese in dire poverty and extreme circumstances. In 1961 he married Raji, and together they served the Lord in utter commitment and dedication.

He was one of the early graduates of Southern Asia Bible College, having completed his studies there in the Year 1960 and joined the faculty in 1970. In the Year 1976, he completed his Doctorate in Missiology from Fullers Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California.

Since 1978, he served the Assemblies of God in various leadership positions . He was the General Superintendent – Central District [Karnataka and Goa], South India Assemblies of God until his demise on December 17th, 2008. He has served the Assemblies of God for the last four decades.

Rev. Dr. T C George was the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Southern Asia Bible College; Executive Committee Member of the All India United Christian Voice; Vice Chairman of Asian Institute of Theology. He was a leader with a vision for growth!

My father has been an inspiration to me. He has been more than a father to me. A strict disciplinarian, he instilled in me Christian values at a very young age. He loved God and did everything according to the Word of God. He followed the straight and narrow path in all of his endeavors. He has supported me in every walk of life.

He was a generous giver. No pastor or man of God would leave without him giving them something. Recently when I needed money to pay for the Church [GCAG] land, he willingly sold his property and gave it to me and remains the single largest donor to the building project. He was my mentor and friend.

His sad demise is an extremely painful loss to me. Yes, I am sure he is in a better place, in the presence of God and yet the pain of his absence here on earth will be deeply felt…always! I am proud of my father, and I am proud to be his son!
