Pastor George Fultz First Church  of God Columbus, OHGeorge Fultz

One of the upcoming voices in his generation, George Fultz II, MDiv., a dynamic preacher, speaker, and emerging leader, has devoted his life to being one of the men that God uses to proclaim his word to the world. At a young age, his unique gifting and powerful anointing has granted him the awesome opportunity of preaching the gospel nationally as well as internationally.

Inspired by his grandmother, Pastor Clarice Chambers, commitment to education, George too developed a love for learning. Formally theologically trained George received a Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC, and also has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice with a concentration in pre-law from North Carolina A & T. Currently George serves as the Youth Pastor for one of our nations most respected leaders Bishop Timothy Clarke, at First Church of God, in Columbus Ohio. Prior to his assignment at First Church, Pastor George had the awesome opportunity to sit under the tutelage of Pastor Andy Thompson and perfect his gift,at one of the fastest growing churches in the nation, World Overcomers Christian Church, located in the Research Triangle Park area of Durham, North Carolina.

George believes that he was purposed and prepared to be a resounding voice of change within the body of Christ, and has been strategically placed in this season and in this moment to change how we do “church” and 21st Century Ministry. More importantly his goal and his passion is to preach a Real, Relevant, and Radical word that inspires youth and young adults to be souled out for God. Aside from ministry there is one thing that he does love greater and that’s the love for his “barbecue rib” his wife Cheylaina.
