Georgian and Winnie Banov, lovingly referred to as the, “Joy Apostles” are a radical team with a powerful message. Boldly declaring the finished work of the Cross they minister freedom, joy, supernatural healings and wholeness.
Georgian was born in communist Bulgaria. As a teenager, he was a founding member of the first official rock 'n roll band in the country. He escaped the iron curtain and was mightily saved after coming to the United States. It was during the tale end of the “Jesus Movement” in 1974 that he had a powerful encounter with Christ in Southern California. Soon after getting saved, he became a leader of a contemporary Christian band called, “Silverwind” in the 1980's. He was also the co-writer and co-producer of famous children classics, such as “Music Machine” and “Bullfrogs and Butterflies, which sold over 3.5 million, copies worldwide and earned Grammy and Dove Awards.
The Banovs travel extensively holding apostolic renewal meetings and conferences worldwide. Charged with a heart of compassion for the poorest of the poor, they also host lavish evangelistic feeding crusades throughout the third world.
