Evelyn Joshua’s Biography

Behind every successful man, there’s usually a woman. In the case of the popular pastor, TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, the woman behind his success in ministry is his wife, Evelyn Joshua.

Little was known about the amiable wife of the notable prophet but a few years ago, she granted an interview where she disclosed a lot about herself and her lovely family.

In this post, you’ll find out several things about Evelyn, the adorable wife of TB Joshua.

Early Years

Evelyn was born on the 17th of December, 1968. She is a native of Delta State where she hails from Okala Okpuno in Oshimili North Local Government. Evelyn was born a twin but her twin brother is late

She was born to the families of Mr and Mrs Nicholas Akabude. Evelyn attended St Emecheta Primay School in Ezi Town in Delta State but she didn’t complete her primary education.

Evelyn would later come to Lagos in 1977 where she completed her primary education at Orile Primary School in Oshodi. She also had secondary education in the same vicinity.

At the time when she met her husband, she was working at the Nigerian Distilleries in Ota while attending the Assemblies of God Church.

After she got married, Evelyn attended some management courses in Ghana. Although she is the wife of a pastor, she’s not a pastor but she’s actively involved in her husband’s ministry.

The Proposal

According to Evelyn, TB Joshua proposed to her within forty-five minutes of their first-ever meeting. She was twenty-two years old at that time.

Evelyn visited her sister at Ikotun-Egbe and everyone seems to be talking about a particular prophet. Interestingly, all of them seem to have good things to say about him.

She wanted to meet the prophet as well because at that time of her life, she was looking for a spiritual guide. She went to see him at home with her sister but she didn’t meet him. Many months after, she went to see him again but this time she met him.

She was surprised to see that the prophet was such a young man. When he met her, he looked at her for quite some time then he wrote the word Ejide (twin) on a piece of paper.

TB Joshua told Evelyn many things about herself, some of which she knew and some that she didn’t.

After their conversation which lasted about forty-five minutes, he proposed to her. This was really strange to Evelyn but according to her, when he made the proposal, her heart agreed with it.

She would later ask him how he could see a lady the first time and propose to her. It was at this point; that he told her about a vision he had some days ago.

Evelyn married T.B Joshua some months after that meeting and so far, it’s been a happy experience being married to the prophet.

According to Evelyn, that fateful meeting with TB Joshua was a divine arrangement because on the morning of the meeting, she actually had an instruction to go and see him. And looking back at it even though the proposal felt strange and she’s grateful to God that their marriage has worked quite well so far.

Marriage

Interestingly, all her children are girls and this is sometimes an in some marriages, but Evelyn says she’s really not bothered because her husband doesn’t have a problem with it. Also, she seems to have a lot of boys around her, so she doesn’t feel left out not having any son.
