Faith Ministries Zimbabwe
Sheffield Community Church is historically and relationally linked to Faith Ministries Zimbabwe because that is where it was planted from when people moved into the diaspora. Faith Ministries Zimbabwe is a charismatic, Bible based ministry. The vision of Faith Ministries is to Reach People and Turn Them into Fully Devoted Followers of Christ (Matt. 28:19-20).
Faith Ministries was started in 1976 by a Scotsman called Alastair Geddes. Ngwiza Mnkandla took over leadership as senior pastor in 1984 and that year marks the beginning of the present shape of Faith Ministries.
