Pastor Charles and Olivia Charamba have left the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe church which has been torn apart by divisions.

The couple has formed Rooted in Christ Ministries that will have its launch service at the Zimbabwe College of Music on Sunday.

“We have officially left the AFM after several considerations that followed a call to mission that I received from God more than two years ago. The idea has been in the pipeline as we prayed and let God’s call come to fruition according to His time,” said Pastor Charamba.

He said the departure was not triggered by the divisions.

 “We have always listened to God’s voice. We did so as musicians and preachers. We call our mission ‘pashoko pangoma’, as we emphasised on our album with that name. We are called to ministry through singing and preaching. We are continuing with the music and the Word.”
