Working with God’s people to make compassion ministry an integral part of mission.
The long history of HTC training church leaders began in the Zambezi Valley in 1953 as part of the missionary efforts of The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) at Mavhuradonha. Later the training of leaders moved to Kapfundi where the program developed by adding a three-year English course for post-Standard VI applicants.
Karanda Mission Hospital was established in 1961 to meet the needs of mission stations in the Zambezi River valley which were established as churches and then, as the abundant health care challenges were seen, small dispensaries/clinics were developed along with the churches (then came schools). To help the clinics, the hospital was built. Karanda is in a remote area of Northern Zimbabwe nearest to Mount Darwin. It’s location is approximately 200 kilometres from the Capital of Harare.
In Mozambique, as in southern Africa, the Church continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. There is a need for sufficiently trained African leaders capable of discipling the many who are coming to Christ. However, only 5% of the leaders in these Mozambican churches know how to read or write, and even fewer of them read sufficiently to teach their people from the Word of God!
