Apostle Joshua Selman is the founder of Eternity Network International, also known as Koinonia Global. He is known for his deep teaching of the Word of God and his release of powerful prophetic utterance. He was born on 25th June 1980 and raised by godly parents in Zaria, Kaduna, a predominantly Muslim environment.
As a young child, his parent gave him a good foundation in the Christian way and support in his ministerial work. There is no doubt that his Christian upbringing contributed to the success of his ministry today. His maternal grandfather, Rev. Rindap Damina Bawado, was the first president of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) and served from 1951-1981. Before he died in 1993, Rev. Rindap converted many souls to Christianity in Northern Nigeria.
Apostle Selman got born-again early as a child. Growing up, he was always found alone reading and studying the Bible diligently while his peers were playing. That helped in preparing and shaping him for the task ahead.
He had his tertiary education at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria, where he studied chemical engineering and also had the opportunity to begin his work as a minister of God as an undergraduate preaching and sharing the gospel to fellow students in school with the help of his friends.
While in the university, he would often go to the dam to pray and ask God to reveal to him his purpose in life. According to report, on a particular night, he had a vision in which he was standing in front of a tower that looked like one of the University hostels, suddenly; he saw a sea of people having no end. They were all crying and sobbing saying there was no food and water. He immediately felt immense compassion for them. In the vision, it became like he had the key to their solutions and they affirmed that he was the reason they were where they were. He then told them he was coming to rectify that right away after which he woke up.
Along with his friends, Apostle Joshua Selman maximized the privilege they got to share with their fellow students the love of Jesus Christ. They continued in that trend and preached at every program that they were permitted to.
Apostle Joshua Selman was heavily used by God during his university days in prophetic, in healing the sick and performing miracles. In the light of his discovery of the powerful anointing upon him and following the leading of the Holy Spirit, he founded the Eternity Network International (ENI) in March 2011. The ministry which currently meets every Friday at the Christ Gospel Church, Samaru, Zaria, Kaduna State, organized a program named KOINONIA in the same year. The term Koinonia is a Greek word which literally translates to “communion or intimacy”.
He is a well sought after gospel speaker in Christian churches, conferences and programmes. He was one of the ministers at the last Redeemed Christian Church of God international Youth Convention.
Selman is reportedly preparing to get married soon.
