George was a professional touring musician for many years before coming to know Jesus Christ in a miraculous way. His music manager was gloriously saved and planted seeds that eventually led to George’s salvation. After his conversion, George dedicated his gifts and talents to the Lord vowing to live and sing only for Him. Today, he continues to keep that promise both nationally and abroad.
Matranga Ministries was founded in 1983 primarily as a music and evangelistic outreach. At this time there were four distinct outreaches of the ministry: Heart of the Arts music ministries, Commando street crusades and outreaches, Matranga Missions International, and The Shepherd’s Door Christian Outreach Center, located in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the city of Houston. Today, all branches of the ministry have been consolidated under one banner: Heart of the Arts Evangelistic Association.
George is called to impact, equip and mentor God’s people to lives of consecration. The ministry’s purpose is calling hearts to righteousness through music and the prophetic word. God has given him a world vision to carry out his mission in the gospel. This vision has taken him to many countries including Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Croatia, Indonesia, and Australia.
I began recording as a professional musician at the age of sixteen. We recorded sound tracks for two movies and opened up for bands like The Who. In my early twenties, I toured as a front-man with an 8-piece show band on the East Coast of the United States. I wrote all the shows, all the skits including the choreography. Later, in the mid 1970's, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee as a published songwriter as well as the piano player and band director in a regional dance band. Shortly after, at the age of 31, I gave my life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. I vowed only to sing for Him. Since then, I've recorded two Christian albums that played national radio as well as overseas with music still playing to this day. Our ministry once hosted the annual Heart Of The Arts Conference and Showcase for the creative arts. I was the founder as well as a conference speaker. I served as a pioneer pastor as well as a worship pastor. I am currently ordained with the Assembly Of God International Fellowship. I built a professional project recording studio in my home and I am recording my next release, "Ballads For The King".
