Archbishop witnessed the power of God and received Jesus Christ in 1982, at the age of thirteen after having suffered ill-health for a while. He began to preach the word of God throughout Zimbabwe including remote areas. God called him to start the first Ministry in 1995 in Sunningdale suburb of Harare and the Church was named St Peters Holy Apostolic Church on the 15th April 1995. God blessed him and planted five more branches in Harare as the Holy Spirit led. He became a very popular servant of God through the healing powers God anointed him with and his followers grew in numbers until more apostolic branches were planted around Zimbabwe.

Archbishop moved to the United Kingdom in early 1999, where he began to spread the word of God and his ministry has since flourished in UK cities namely Borehamwood, London, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Halifax, Birmingham and Wolverhampton, Leeds, Wigan, Northampton, Bournemouth, Leigh, Southampton and Stockport.
