About Stephanie

Born in Zimbabwe, Pastor Stephanie Chiyangwa spent the first 16 years of her life in Harare. She is now currently based in the UK. At no point did she ever imagine herself leading a ministry or following God’s calling. Her father Dr Phillip Chiyangwa is considered as one of the most successful African entrepreneurs. Her mother is a British Citizen and Mental Health Expert, who has been the most influential person in Pastor Stephanie’s life.

Pastor Stephanie gave her life to Jesus at the age of 15. She was a member of Awake Grace Ministries from the time she moved to the UK. It was in that church that the calling upon her life was established. While at Awake Grace Ministries, Stephanie served as an usher, an amour bearer, a treasurer and eventually a church administrator.

Divine Encounters”

Pastor Stephanie noted several divine encounters as she was growing up, however, she always thought they were fantasies, it was only after she gave her life to Jesus through Pastor Tom Deuschle, that some of what she considered to be “fantasies” became clear angelic and divine encounters. While serving in Awake Grace Ministries, at the age of 19, Pastor Stephanie was given an opportunity to share for 10 minutes as part of the program, on this day the calling upon her life was witnessed and acknowledged by the church leadership, who then insisted she attend bible college, however she was reluctant as she believed her true calling was to be an entrepreneur just  like her father. After this first ministration opportunity, Pastor Stephanie received 7 prophesies from 7 different preachers and 7 different locations with the exact words and it was after these 7 prophecies that Pastor Stephanie accepted the call of God and pursued a degree in theology.
