Harvest House International, a Pentecostal church, enters into partnership with Sunday News.
Copies of the weekly newspaper were seen being sold at the Pentecostal offices on Sundays.
As part of the unique deal, Harvest House International will retain 10% of the amount generated by the newspaper sales. In return, Sunday News will provide the church with free space in the paper’s insert
magazine, The Sunday Leisure, in the culture and region page, where Apostle Colin Nyathi, the church’s founder and senior pastor, is to write Christian messages.
In the latest addition of the Sunday News, Apostle Nyathi’s maiden message ran under the title “Dealing with water, aquatic, marine and Leviathan spirits.” In it the man of God lays foundation to his upcoming messages.
On Sunday, there was excitement at the church as a number of members could be seen having copies of the Sunday News each. “I think this is quite a good initiative and the church should be commended for that, as it will give Christians from across the country an opportunity to learn more about the word of God from the Sunday News,” said Lindiwe Ndlovu, a member of the church. Other Harvesters (members of the church) who read last week’s Sunday News said the church had saved them time to go looking for their favourite publication in the streets as the newspaper was now available in the church.
Apostle Nyathi joins another man of God in the Sunday News. Reverend Paul Damasane of Family of God is also writing Christian messages in the publication.
Sunday News is published by Zimpapers that also operates The Herald and The Sunday Mail in Harare, The Chronicle in Bulawayo and the Manica Post in Mutare.
