Born in ~1953 in Rhodes, George came to Australia early in life, and was raised in Adelaide. He served as a priest on the Gold Coast, and for the most part of his service in Australia, he was an archimandrite at St Nektarios Monastery, Adelaide.
After a period of time in Adelaide, he felt called to missionary work. He then went to Madagascar and began to evangelise, beginning only with a non-functioning church in the capital. In 1997, Archimandrite Nektarios was elected bishop of the newly-created diocese of Madagascar.
In September 2004 he, along with [[Petros VII (Papapetrou) of Alexandria|Petros VII of Alexandria]] and two other metropolitans reposed in a helicopter crash en route to [[Mount Athos|Mt. Athos]]. He was buried in Madagascar.
