A group of American Pastors is in the country with the aim of establishing a college for pastors in Marondera.

The group which is led by Pastor Kate Elfert, however, did not divulge how much they are going to invest in church.

“We are connecting with our hosts here in Zimbabwe, Power Global, whom we also met last year during our visit then. They established a church in Marondera and now they are eager to start their own school of ministry like the one we do in California.

“So we are here to support them and help build what they want to do in Marondera,” she said in an interview at the weekend.

Pastor Elfert is being accompanied by more than ten student pastors from America who said they will provide the college with technical, material and human resources.

Marondera Mayor Farari Nyandoro confirmed meeting the American Pastors to RelZim.

 “We had a lengthy meeting with the team. As a city we are very much interested in investors coming to Marondera. As you might be aware, Zimbabwe has for the past decade been lagging behind investment opening to political and financial problems which emanated from bad governance.

“Our socialization for the same period had taken other dimension. Hate speech had dominated our socialization, and the coming in of the church and their investment is going to take our people back into the right track – that of respect and God fearing,” Nyandoro said.
