The call was made during the 37th Pan African Christian College in conjunction with the Nairobi Pan African Christian University graduation ceremony held in Harare, which saw 26 men and women graduating with Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Bible and Theology and 11 being awarded Diplomas in Ministerial Studies. 

Speaking on the sidelines of the graduation ceremony, Presiding Bishop of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Zimbabwe, Bishop Trevor Manhanga and Pentecostal Assemblies of Zimbabwe, Harare province Overseer, Reverend Never Muparutsa said there is need for the church to continue preaching the gospel of peace for the country to achieve national healing and social progress.

The graduates pledged to spread the gospel of peace, saying as the country prepares for a national referendum and general elections scheduled for next year, it is imperative for Zimbabweans to maintain peace.

The church in Zimbabwe continues to play a crucial role in nation building and it has maintained that the denunciation of violence by all political parties must be translated into reality.
