Georgekutty Abraham was born as the fourth child of Philipose and Annamma Abraham Kalimkoottil, Pampady.   In his early age, he took his grandfather as his role model , a predominant member and a well respected elder of Pampady Karikkamattam church. His grandfather's prayer life and dedication to the church activities encouraged him to be a devoted Christian from his childhood.  As he came to America in the mid 70s,  he had the opportunity  to live with H.E. Yoohannan Mar Philexinios for a few years.  Under his teachings and guidance,  Georgekutty decided to dedicate his life for God's ministry . He was ordained as deacon on September 14, 1981 by the supreme head of the universal Syrian Orthodox Church,  His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas. After the completion of his B.Th. from Logos Bible College, New York, he was ordained priest by H.E. Geevarghese Mar Gregorios (Perumpalli Thirumeni) on December 8, 1984.  He served as  Vicar of the Staten Island Church, New York from 1984 to 1988. He came to Tampa, Florida in 1988 and established the Mar Gregorios Syrian Orthodox Church and he has been the Vicar of this church ever since. His prayer life and commitment to the community has given him a nickname "Our George Achen".
