Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? — Matt 25:34-37 (ESV)

About Gweru

We started our ministry in Gweru, Zimbabwe in early 2015 and have been quickly spreading the Gospel and planting churches throughout the country.
We have local ministry programs in many villages and also care for at-risk children and establish community projects to alleviate poverty, hunger, and disease. Our desire is to see the people of Zimbabwe flourish in their families and fully engage in the hope they have in Jesus.


Primary & Secondary School:
Plans are in place to establish a formal school to accept students in both primary and secondary levels at our ministry center in Mvuma, Zimbabwe. This school will serve the local community as well as support a boarding facility to accommodate students from surrounding villages

Vocational Training:
At the same campus as the primary & secondary school we intend to establish a separate vocational training center where young adults and members of the community will be afforded hands-on course in self-sustaining programs such as agriculture, sewing, catering, mechanics, and more.

Children’s Home:
We intend to build a home specifically for the care of vulnerable and at-risk children with a capacity for 20-40 children. In order to provide the most “normal” upbringing for these children, we have identified foster parents to be residents at our campus and have only 3-5 children with each set of foster parents. Our children will attend our school and also have the opportunity for vocational training.

Livestock Project: 
Our goal is to increase our sustainability, so we plan to raise livestock to use for those living at our center and to sell to generate income.  [Giving Page link]
