Missions: Church of the Nazarene – Southern Rhodesia

Church of the Nazarene

Southern Rhodesia

The Church came to Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in July 1963 when Rev. B Maurice Hall and his wife were chosen to begin work in the capital city of Salisbury (Harare).

The Halls planted churches in the center of Harare and in the suburbs, including in Highfields Township.  Missionaries Jack Barnell and his wife were assigned to open a Bible School in Harare in the 1970s. Barnell supervised the construction of the buildings, selection of curriculum and staff organization.
