The Provincial offices are located at no 3201 Essex Road, corner Coolmoreen Road. The
provincial Conference Centre which is still being built is also located there. The province
borders Shurugwi, Tongogara, Chachacha, Lalapanzi, Lower Gweru, Somabhula and Zhaugwe

Midlands South Province was birthed from Midlands-Mashonaland West province which covered areas from as far as Kariba to Shurugwi.

Mashonaland West was decentralized and Midlands declared a province. Midlands Province
was further decentralized and gave birth to Midlands North (Kadoma and Chegutu)and Midlands
Provinces. Midlands province gave birth to Gokwe Province. Midlands was further divided into
two provinces, Midlands Central (Kwekwe) and Midlands South Provinces (Gweru-Shurugwi).
Midlands South Province then gave birth to Zvishavane, which is known as Midlands East
Province. (NB. Provinces delimited by AFM.)

The Province, which has the acronym, Midsouth, has seen notable pastors take their positions in
turn as leaders of this great province. Such noteworthy names which come to mind are Rev
Gwanzura, Rev M Guchutu and Rev C Choto and finally Rev M. Mapuranga

The province continues to grow numerically, spiritually and financially. The province has a
total of 37 assemblies. Only 4 of the assemblies defected with their pastors. The province has
26 localised assemblies and 11 centralized assemblies. Tithe performance has been resounding,
thanks to the teachings of the word and encouragement from pastors.
