Biography of Apostle Joshua Selman

Apostle Joshua Selman Nimmak's Biography

Born on the 25th of June, 1980, Apostle Joshua Selman Nimmak is a deep teacher of God’s word, and the founder of Koinonia (Eternity Network International).

Apostle Joshua Selman hails from Langtang in Jos, Plateau state, Nigeria. He was however raised and schooled in Zaria, Kaduna State.

He received an early calling to serve God and got born again as a child, during a Sunday School session. In his Secondary school days, God brought a mentor his way who helped him draft a quiet-time time table and also taught him the basics of Christian character. The supernatural manifestation of Gods power in his life not only attests to the fact that his call is genuine, but that he is a product of diligent study of scriptures and encounters with the Holy Spirit.

This really helped as he had complex issues and also the challenge of how to reconcile his dreams with all he was seeing around him. Therefore, he was opened up to the motivation that he needed as he really loved God. He then began to pursue God truly and sincerely from his heart.

As a teenager, his unwavering love for God even at the time caught the attention of a lot as he had an inclination for spiritual things. Growing up, Apostle Joshua Selman 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.

Shortly, he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit after and thus began his ‘journey’ to the realm of the supernatural. Himself and four other friends began to do the extraordinary in their school by simply applying their faith. Amongst other miracles, this birthed the healing of a stammerer.

Along the line, some of the things he walked in were called heresies. This made himself and his friends backslide but that changed by the encounter he received on the 2nd of December, 2002 where someone tapped him on the hand while he slept and as he awoke, he knew it was Jesus though he couldn’t explain how he knew. This was his first encounter with Christ. He then began to cry profusely as he rededicated himself for the Master’s use. He also had a dream in which he was ministering in the university and also started having encounters with heavenly personalities and notable apostles of God. Thus, it is only right to say that he  already had an idea of what was waiting for him before he stepped his feet in the university.

Not much has been documented about his primary and secondary schools but 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.

Apostle Joshua Selman’s ministry started when he was on campus – Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. While in the University, his hunger for God grew. He would often go to the dam to pray and ask God to reveal to him his purpose in life. One 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.

This was when he knew that God had called him to be a preacher and a minister. His most dramatic encounter was when Jesus Christ Himself appeared and stood before him. All Jesus did was stretch His hand towards him and a great beam of light came upon him. That encounter brought a level of anointing and understanding into his life as he began to have extraordinary insight into the Word like never before. 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”.

Apostle Joshua Selman has been mentored and influenced by many heavily anointed men of God. He describes himself as a product of many graces, anointings and divine impartations. This is seen when he talks about the different men of God that have at one time or the other imparted his life including Benny Hinn, Bishop David O. Oyedepo, Pastor E.A.Adeboye, Professor Daniel Olukoya, T. L. Osbourne and Evangekist Reinhard Bonnke, among others.

At the time of writing this biography Apostle Joshua Selman is not married. Although, there are words going round that Apostle Joshua Selman is in a relationship with Lady Sandra Areh (born December 9), who is also referred to as Selwoman after the Apostle's surname “Selman”.

 

Sandra Aleh Selwoman

Born December 9, Sandra Areh is a graduate of Mass Communication an a long time member of the Eternity Network International, popularly known as Koinonia. She started out with her work in the media department of the ministry.

Also, as regards Apostle Joshua Selman's immediate family, we can only tell of his biological mother whom he often mentions in his ministrations. She celebrates her birthday yearly on the 24th of August.

Koinonia was established with the sole aim of serving as a medium of reaching out to God with worship, love, miracles, sharing, listening to the word of God and experiencing the true intimacy with the Holy Spirit. It is a weekly program slated for 5:00pm every Sunday of the week and is hosted by  Apostle Joshua Selman.

Koinonia's cardinal mission sets it to; 

  • Seek and save the lost. It was launched to help in the salvation of human souls, through messages and sermons.
  • Equip and perfect the saints by the revelation of God’s word and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
  • Demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit through signs, wonders and miracles to confirm that Jesus is alive. This is conveyed when his presence is made manifest in worship.
  • To reveal the wealth of the kingdom and finance Gods end-time agenda: through the messages, there will be increase in the wealth of the kingdom and it will help to finance God’s end-time agenda.

Also the core values of the program are faith, anointing, evangelism, character, intimacy and fellowship, purpose and kingdom, love. and prosperity amongst other spiritual and Bible guided principles.

He currently leads the Eternity Network International, Abuja and regularly visits the Zaria assembly. He is also the Principal of the Koinonia School of Ministry (KSOM). The Koinonia School of Ministry is God's training ground for individuals who sense the call of God upon their lives. 

As at the time of updating this blog post (7th January, 2023), Apostle Joshua Selman is NOT on any social media platform. However, his ministry, Eternity Network International is active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

  32. Just speechless but I know Apostle Selman is a god in human form on earth. Man is so full of spirit. Anytime I am going through anything in my life, I listen to his messages on YouTubes and behold, he talks to me directly. I don’t know how he does it or how it always happens. There I know this he is our god in human form. To confirm, I had to travel down from Lagos to Abuja for koinonia 5pm service and behold, I cried my eyes out, God has really blessing me through his servant. More grace sir.

    1. A true, competent and resourceful servant of God with a charismatic and transformational leadership system. God bless you sufficiently as you continue to be a remarkable and outstanding instrument for the service of the host of heavens.

  33. A prototypical quintessential missionary and advocate of Christ who has a diverse plethora of acquaintance, comprehensive knowledge and expertise in a substratum of hegemonic leadership in a christian denomination that is stratospherically subjective in demonstrating, communicating and evangelizing the synoptic or canonical gospel for the salvation of incredible souls for the kingdom glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    His cascading potentiality is an exemplification of divine endowment which is characterized with the dichotomies of extensive intellectualism and vast profundity. His ecclesiastical interference and sacerdotal intercession in building an organizational framework for Spiritual impartations is a compendium and an embodiment of the trichotomy of a uniform faith, an undeviating aspiration and an unflinching trust or certitude which are some preponderant core values that are pivotal in my calling and will certainly be a panacea in the pathway to activate, achieve, accomplish and consummate the entelechy of the treasures in heaven.
    May the heavenly father perpetuate his overflow of anointing and unparalleled grace for you Sir!

    1. Presumptuously, from a literal or hypothetical panorama, one of the collective contributions that requires exegetical relevance and significance we should be occasioning in form of catechism probably during a colloquium or symposium within the intrinsic or extrinsic environment of the believers denomination in subsequence to proferring immediate answers should be an analytical or theoretical approach that will reference the dogmatic assertion on how this veritable and staunch advocate of the highest supremacy has a functional, structural and systematic leadership archetype which involves a multichotomous disposition on the substratum of a visionary, charismatic, administrative, participative, directive, autocratic, strategic, coaching, servant and transformational leadership paradigm in the Koinonia Christian Denomination which is a form of liturgical and sacramental blessings to the commonalities of Christianity.
