Zion Christian Church



Bishop Dr Nehemiah Mutendi is the Head (Chief Executive Officer) and Supreme Spiritual leader of the Zion Christian Church. He is assisted by a Minister-in-Charge as well as a Secretary-General who reside at Mbungo, Masvingo. Current Minister-in-Charge is Elder Abimelech Chikumbo. The Mbungo Head Office houses many administrative units that help in the day to day running of the church and that link with structures within parishes in the country and around the world.

For easier administration of the affairs of the Church a number of committees such as Finance Committee have been established and these coordinate the smooth running of parishes. Mbungo also hosts the Evangelic team which goes out on missions to preach the Good News and to convert people. A sizeable contingent of church Elders also resides at Mbungo, also known as the City of Peace.

The church has an Executive arm led by what is known as the Town Cooperation with a Committee led by a Chairman. Town Cooperation is an amalgamation of all urban and international parishes and it plays an important part in discussing and formulating both policy and operational issues for onward counsel to the Bishop. There is also a Rural Cooperation incorporating all rural parishes. These committees play an vital role in debating issues about parish welfare, fundraising and means of supporting church programmes such as evangelism.
