Zionist Apostolic Church has started its program to construct primary and secondary boarding schools, vocational training center and a theological college.

The indigenous Christian Church will probably become the first to achieve such a milestone development in the country.

This comes at a time when indigenous churches are now taking centre stage in spearheading matters of sustainable development in their areas of programming.

Speaking to Spotlight Global News this week, Zionist Church Arch Bishop Kudakwashe Shumba said plans are now at an advanced stage  to spearhead the much awaited construction project.

“Plans are now at an advanced stage to start the construction of schools, vocational training center and a theological college.”

According to Bishop Shumba, the construction is set to be a game changer among the indigenous churches in a bid to turn the narrative that Apostolic churches are associated with old practices, lacking education in line with the era of modernity.

“We have to prove to the world that indigenous churches have the capacity to tap into long term developmental projects that has the potential to have a strong impact in our society.”

The completion of the project will see many children from low esteemed background benefiting at large. Apart from this, unemployed youths from the church and the surrounding communities are set to benefit from the vocational training center.
