From all that I have seen for myself, heard from others and have blind faith in; these are my stories for your motivation and encouragement. I will start my series of Legend with one of Chitungwiza's greatest spiritual legends: Apostle Pride Sibiya.

Apostle Pride Sibiya
Apostle Pride Sibiya who currently resides in Chitungwiza is the founder and president of Glory Ministries. A ministry which he started in 2001 under the unction and impetus given by the 'Holy Spirit.' This means he has been overseeing the growth of the ministry for almost 14 years now, and this is no small feat. Apart from this, Apostle Pride Sibiya has been in ministry for 20 years now. This means he has been preaching the gospel, teaching the saints and ministering in healing and miracles for the past 20 years. Well, I am happy to say that I met him for the very fist time when he was still a minister of the gospel and not an Apostle.

My First Encounter With Apostle Pride Sibiya: I first met Apostle Sibiya in the  late 90s, He was then referred to as Evangelist. I was still a student at Zengeza High school and like any typical young believer I wanted to associate myself with my elders who were well versed in the scriptures and who could also act like my spiritual mentors. He was a down to earth man with no exaggerated holiness that most men I came across.

Like any young man I had so many questions to ask him, from my walk with God, the 'Holy Spirit' and issues to do with family. He was apt to respond to all my question in the best way that he could and in my school days, I knew that I had a man to look up to. These where days where the greats like Bishop T.D Jakes and Bishop Noel Jones where trending. So when I used to preach I would strive to perfect my preaching model to suite these greats.
Apostle Pride Sibiya was one of the models I was really close to since he gave me close-up lectures that also gave me a well rounded approach to build my ministry.
