About Us

Our Background

HOPE began its training programs in 2007 and has since managed to provide practical training in biblically sound, culturally relevant and needs-based leadership programs for the pastors and church leaders throughout the nation. Since 2007, we have trained over 2400 pastors and leaders through our innovative and life-changing workshops. HOPE addresses the need for pastoral leadership training by organizing conferences, workshops and seminars on Discipleship, Bible study methods, integrity, culturally relevant evangelism outreaches, church planting, visionary leadership, stewardship and family priority. The intricate and strong social systems common among African communities make pastors and church lay leaders very influential in their communities.

As a result, HOPE views the Equipping of church leaders as mission critical to achieving lasting and holistic transformation across communities. HOPE is committed to equipping men and women in Southern Africa to answer the urgent call for visionary leadership in the church and in communities hardly reached by the Gospel. Through a Biblically sound, culturally relevant and needs-based leadership program, HOPE trains pastors, church lay leaders, women, youth, civil society leaders, local government officials, military chaplains and tribal elders in the biblical principles of visionary leadership, discipleship, mentorship, evangelism and community initiatives. Using a ‘train the trainer’ teaching approach.

HOPE is developing leaders at the heart of African communities who are equipped and empowered to effect change where it is most desperately needed. In this way, HOPE is providing essential skills and tools necessary to help move Africa from bad leadership to visionary leadership; from dependency to self-sufficiency.

HOPE operates across Zimbabwe as well as neighbouring countries, in areas where the need for pastoral leadership training cannot be overstated. In many of the communities where HOPE serves, pastors have never had any Biblical or theological training. As a result, traditional beliefs and practices are often presented alongside biblical truths. Worse still, many of the pastors serving in the more remote villages have no Bibles (or may have one Bible that they are forced to share among 30 to 40 people) yet they are expected to disciple and lead their congregants.

What we need to continue with our programmes:
One of the best investments we can make with our mission is in the area of training and equipping pastors and Christian workers. The local pastor and Christian worker, best understand the cultural mind-set of their fellow countrymen and the hindrances that keep them from embracing the gospel.

When they are trained and equipped with the Word of God they can reproduce themselves over and over again, thus increasing the effectiveness of the equipping mission. Therefore, HOPE has a strong commitment to training local pastors and Christian workers. Our vision is to see the church grow spiritually, numerically as well as financially. With this in mind we have a need for churches in the International realm who have overseas mission work at heart, particularly in Zimbabwe.

We provide a platform for the International churches or mission societies to come and partner with us in 3 ways:

  • Evangelizing the lost
  • Equipping the saints
  • Encouraging the believers

This would work as follows:- We would love the churches and mission societies to come and train our pastors and church leaders in leadership development within our body and also partner with us in church planting, where we would like to see at least 12 churches planted in a single year. We would love for them to partner with us in hosting our conferences. Lastly, we would also want the International churches and mission societies to bring in teams who will be able to conduct outreaches in terms of revivals, crusades and street evangelism in Africa.
