Pastor Kasbert Magaya

I came to Ameva Bible College in January 1984.Duringthe same year, Mr John Shaw and his

wife Martha came to Zimbabwe to establish a primary school. The Shaws asked me to help with the school during my free time then after my graduation in 1985, Rev Valentine asked me to stay at Ameva as a full time Teacher at the primary school. The Shaws left for England that

same year leaving me in charge and Mrs Valentine came in to help as the Head of the school.

I was also involved with Evangelism in all the farms surrounding Ameva. In 1988 we started a

secondary school in the primary school premises until Mr and Mrs Shaw came back again and

pulled the secondary students from the primary school premises and built a secondary school.

In 1995, I moved to Mashonaland Central to work at Hinton Estates and worked there as a

Pastor and Teacher for six years. I left Hinton Estates and worked with Destitute Care and New Hope Villages for thirteen years until the organization closed down in 2014.

We started our Ministry with my wife Lydia called Newhope Christian Fellowship in 2014. Since

then we are still being supported by the Valentines. The Ministry is still small and it was also

terribly affected by the Covid Pandemic which hit in 2020.
