Apostle Joshua Selman is a profound Nigerian missionary who works as a televangelist, a conference speaker, a music minister, an engineer, and a pastor. He is widely known as the founder of Koinonia (Eternity Network International) in Zaria, Kaduna State.
All facts propose that he is not married, although he is assumed to be in a relationship with a female personality, Sandra Areh. These were insinuated through the floated pictures of both parties in church crusades, conferences, and rallies. This is somewhat more than enough evidence for people to conclude about their relationship until both or one of them publicly claims otherwise.
Is Apostle Joshua Selman Married?
Selman has no history of marriage, at least to what is known of him. His life circles more around his religious career. In his early life, there is also no record of a questioning marital factor, having been born and bred in the northern part of Nigeria. He grew up in a vibrant religious enabling environment having his father’s mother as the first president of the Church of Christ in Nations. She is believed to be one of his mentors alongside other great men of God whom he may have chosen while he was nurturing ministerial journey, the likes of Reinhard Bonnke, Benny Hinn, etc.
Apostle Selman was born in Jos plateau state before moving to Zaria, where he also had his childhood education and undergraduate education at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna state in Nigeria as a chemical engineering undergraduate student. The minister of the word seemed to have lived a normal life with the potential to consider having a marital life. He has no record of having biological children. Those considered his children are best regarded as his spiritual children whom he has impacted in many ways, like through grooming in religious affairs or through financial assistance, among many others.
The Truth About Apostle Selman and Sandra Areh
As it is presumed that Apostle is yet to be married, the discussion about Apostle and Sandra is at the peak with hopes that Apostle may be preparing for a marriage that might at least be publicly known. In 2021, it was rumored that he was set to get married to her, but a year is about to go by with no update on an official binding of the Selman and Selwomam, a nickname fans have chosen to give to Sandra Areh.
The source of this suspicious relationship started when a friend of Apostle Selman, Olufukeji Ejimi, wished Sandra Areh a happy birthday on his social media post with the caption “Selwoman” with a hint that there might be a union in the following year. Sandra Areh had her early life in Zaria, just like the Apostle. Perhaps, this was how the alleged couple met themselves as the bond between them seems to be strong, as though it started from a very long time ago.
Who is the Sandra Areh? What Does She Do for a Living?
Sandra Areh is Apostle Selman’s supposed fiancée. She works as a personal assistant to a legislator. Sandra was raised in a Christian home, but later she gave her life to Christ when she was in her first week at the university studying Mass Communication. It was at this point she became more involved in the work of the ministry.
Born on the 9th of December, Sandra was welcomed into an eastern tribed family (Anambra). She is now a women leader in her own way, with people who adore her revering her as their role model. She has also gained love from the followers of Apostle Selman, most especially with the history of her being one of the early members of Koinonia as a media team member. There is no specific information on the year she was born, but she is most likely the apostle’s age mate or younger.
Statistics have it that she graduated from the university in 2013. Despite losing her father in 2005 and her mother in 2020, Sandra Areh has grown to become an achieved woman.
Apostle Selman is an Influential Christian Missionary
Apostle Selman took to starting a foundational career from his early childhood. He was opportune to not only have made the decision but to have also found himself in an enabling environment. Much is not known about his parent’s contribution, but it can be traced that he focused more on his religion and took a serious interest in learning from the Sunday school classes at the church he attended.
Following this, he began organizing mini bible hubs and gatherings to further his preaching. This started in his undergraduate days till he was fully involved in the ministry to be officially named a pastor. Selman, in his pastoral activities before founding his own ministry, once worked as an assistant pastor in the Christ Gospel Church, which is located in Samaturu, Zaria, before becoming senior pastor in the church.
By the time he was 30 years old, he embarked on his solo ministry journey by establishing the Eternity Network International (ENI), which is a very strong existing mono-parish church. Towards the expansion of his ministry, two Christian organizations were created out of his church, and they are Konoina Global and ENI school of ministry where the former focuses on the training of interested individuals in increasing the body of Christ as well as growing closer to God, the latter on the other hand focuses on raining potential missionary persons to meeting self-development and purpose.
