Churches of Christ: Nhowe Bible School
Churches of Christ
Nhowe Bible School
American missionaries from the Church of Christ (a cappella) established the Nhowe Bible College in 1958 at Nhowe Mission, Southern Rhodesia. Pioneer teachers at the school included Dick Clark, Loy Mitchell and Roy Palmer and Alex Classen.
The school’s mission was to train African preachers “in the teaching and interpretation of the Bible” and also to offer “lectureships to elders, deacons and other congregational members of the churches of Christ in Zimbabwe and their neighboring countries.”
In 1971, the school was relocated to Umtali (Mutare) and was renamed Mutare Bible School.
