At Zion Bible College, Zionist pastors and church leaders are taught the truth. ZEMA (a partner organization with TEAM in Southern Africa) felt the need to establish ZBC in Swaziland, where over 60% of the 1.1 million population are Zionists. This is the highest concentration of Zionists in Africa.
God has raised up a team of gifted Swazi teachers and missionaries to help with the heavy load. This allowed ZBC to expand to 11 locations in 2010 to 30 in 2014.
Zion Bible College is not a typical Bible college. Instead of having a central campus or an administrative office. ZBC is a travelling college which goes to the students. There is a four-year curriculum, which includes every book of the Bible as well as character studies and doctrinal topics.
The work with the amaZioni is often cited by mission experts as the most exciting mission opportunity in the world today. . .
PERHAPS THE NEXT GREAT AWAKENING!

In 1904, the church in Zion, Illinois, sent a missionary to South Africa. By 1906, he had baptized 5,000 new believers. There was no further contact between these converts and the church in Zion until about 1970. The initial group of 5,000 new believers now numbers 15-18 million, and they point to the church in Zion as their ?mother church.?
Today, the Zionists (the Zulu term is amaZioni, meaning ?out of Zion?) embrace Christianity, but after many decades without access to Bibles and Bible training, this movement has become somewhat syncretistic in their beliefs. But Zionists are now requesting biblical training, and schools such as ZEBS (Zion Evangelical Bible Schools) and ZBC (Zion Bible College) were established to meet this need.
