Meeting George Zubick for the first time leaves an initial impression of a man with a quiet dignity, a strong humility. Just scratch the surface by talking about God, however, and he responds with the fire of an evangelist in his prime. If you had known George as a young man you would have known that he was quite an unlikely candidate for the decades of exuberant faith that were to follow.

“I was raised to believe that the church was the most corrupt organization on earth,” says George. “My first thought of God is when I got married; I knew I was committing before God in my marriage. I didn’t believe in Jesus at the time.”

George and his wife began “church shopping” when they wanted to get their daughter baptized. They settled on a Reformed Church of America church as they appreciated the pastor and the Sunday evening services, which were mostly worship and personal testimonies. George’s upbringing didn’t die too quickly, as evidenced by his frustration when he was told his daughter couldn’t be baptised in the church.

“The pastor told me that neither my wife nor I were members of the church, and I told him we wanted to join,” says George. “He asked me why I wanted to join, and I told him, ‘I’m as good as any of the hypocrites in the pews, it’s about time I got credit for it!’”

After a year as a member in the church he was nominated to become a deacon as a businessman. Though George was a bit sceptical, the pastor prayed that if it was God’s will George would be elected. When he was overwhelmingly elected he felt like he had to serve.

“For two years my duties were to count donations and authorize checks. I saw where every penny in the church went, and I got to see that not all churches were corrupt.”

One of George’s most formative moments in his early faith was when he was asked to usher at a Kathryn Kuhlman service, and though he went to serve, he also went looking for a sign from God.

“I felt waves of hot and cold going over the building. Kathryn Kuhlman came out and went into her delivery, saying that the hot wind of God was blowing into people’s lungs and healing them. I saw them being healed, and knew that the Bible was true from 2000 years ago, and I decided to find out the rest.”

George has seen God work in his life from the spectacular healing of his daughter’s legs, which were of unequal length, to the everyday mundane, like finding hopelessly lost objects after praying about them. God’s unending faithfulness has been transforming George for many years now.

“I see myself as a pastor of the marketplace,” says George. “On occasion I’m able to minister to customers and staff. I can be there for people in their trials and traumas, to hold and cry with those who are struggling.

We need to learn how to love and honour people, regardless of their walk. Sometimes we get the privilege of telling people that the Creator of the universe wants to spend eternity with us, and the only way to be good enough is through the blood of the Lamb.”
