History of calling of the founder.
Pastor Joseph was called way back in the 1960s when he was still a six year old shepherd boy in Shurugwi Communal lands Zimbabwe. Before he could positively respond to the calling, he suffered incarceration as a political prisoner at Connemarra Prison in 1979. It was after he was shot and injured on the left thigh in tragic war situation that he was taken a prisoner of war. God used this dreadful and heartbreaking experience to make him a strong believer and to answer the calling of God. In the solitude in prison cells, the lord kept talking to him to confirm the calling. From prison he joined the Police force where later resigned to join Bible College at Living Waters Bible College Zimbabwe.
He worked and pioneered,planted several churches in the Apostolic Faith Mission In Zimbabwe.

Third Visit to Tanzania and Zanzibar.
April 2005 saw the senior pastor's second visit to Tanzania with a team of three where he meet different pastors and people from all walks of life in Dar-Es-Salam and later visited Zanzibar a Muslim dominated Island. It was so interesting to witness to the Muslims on a one on one basis and two Muslim couples converted to Christ and a girl from the same community surrendered her life to Christ. More than three Tanzanian pastors at Morogoro offered to work with Holiness Revival Ministry.
The senior Pastor & his wife attended an ARC Conference at Kanye Botswana where Apostole Bob Hill and his team were ministering. The wife of the senior pastor was ordained. A Bible Institute is already in place.
