Zion Christian Church (ZCC)
Zion Christian Church (ZCC) is one of the oldest independent African churches in Zimbabwe.
It was established when Reverend Samuel Mutendi received spiritual baptism in 1913. Rev. Samuel Mutendi (1880 – 1976) was born and grew up in the province of Fort Victoria (now Masvingo) when the country was still Southern Rhodesia under British colonial rule. Samuel Mutendi was visited by the Holy Spirit in 1913 whilst working as a policeman for the British South African Police (BSAP) in what was then called Hartley (now Chegutu).
