He has authored three books : Firebrand - a supernatural encounter with God ,  Fearless and When Heaven Speaks - The Secret of The Red Heifer .

The most famous of his books is Firebrand where he gets to tell of how God invaded his life at a time that he was caught up ‘flashy’ sinful lifestyle .

The book goes ahead to tell how during a service which Bishop Margaret (his mother) - he was told to lay hands on a leprous stiff man - and as the man arose , he (Evans Kariuki) fell to the floor with a thud - this marked a new beginning in his life .

Early life[edit | edit source]

Evans Kariuki was born in Nairobi , Kenya on 24/01/1982 .

He has two siblings : Stephen Kariuki (a politician) , and Purity Wanjira .

They were raised in a single-parent family setup , her mother, Margaret Wanjiru, being the family`s breadwinner .

In his book Firebrand , he says that her mother (who is now the founder and presiding bishop at Jesus Is Alive Ministry) once practiced witchcraft until a time she got saved and the family remodeled into a christian family .

Poverty , lack of school fees and lack of food were some of the hardships the family grew up in .

Later on in life , he ventured into business and got to make his first million Kenyan shillings ($100,000 according to current exchange rates) while he was just 18 years old.

Blowing up his first big income taught him two valuable lessons :

  1. He could succeed financially despite coming from a poor financial background as long as he was willing to put on extra-ordinary handwork .
  2. His business could only sprout better if he put money earned from profits back into the business instead of engaging in a lavish duplex lifestyle .

These two lessons and more that he acquired with time and experience have contributed to him pioneering one of Africa`s largest logistics and energy firm
