What is Faithful StewardActivators and how does it link up with Ebenezer Agricultural Training Centre?
Two staff members from Ebenezer Agricultural training Centre , Xolani Ndlovu and Portia Chitunhu, went to Harare for 4 weeks training at River of Life Westgate Church, Harare, Zimbabwe as part of the Faithful Stewards Activators programme. Both Xolani and Portia are also members of Crossroads Community Church, a church plant out of River of Life Church Bulawayo. Crossroads Community Church and River of Life Church based in Bulawayo are just two of the many churches that have a relationship with New Frontiers and enjoy being part of the family of churches.

Faithful Stewards - Feedback
Faithful Stewards is a ministry based on the exhortation from the parable of the talents to be faithful stewards first with what God has given each of us, before wishing for more.
This year the ministry is aimed at equipping the Newfrontiers Zimbabwe churches to be fruitful and produce food for their own tables and a surplus to sell. The target is over 500 families on 1,200hactares, growing maize and soyabeans, and includes making compost for fertiliser, and linking the families to appropriate markets.
Through this we aim to break the yoke of poverty and set people free to minister in God's church to those as yet unsaved in their communities. The first 35 people received an intensive month of training at River of Life Westgate. We are amazed at their enthusiasm and eagerness. Please pray that they will effectively carry this back to their communities and reap a bountiful harvest.
