It is with heavy hearts that we share news of the passing of Agrippa Dube, African Leadership’s Former Country Director in Zimbabwe, on September 1st.

Joining African Leadership in 2000 as one of our first Country Directors, Agrippa valiantly and steadfastly served in many roles to many people: as the Zimbabwe Pastor Training Director and Southern Africa Regional Director to thousands of students and pastors, as an ordained minister and respected preacher to his church community, as an involved and devoted servant to the most vulnerable in his country, and as a husband to Mainah, and father to 7 biological and many more adopted children.

Agrippa is remembered fondly by President Emeritus Eddy Messick as a dedicated and visionary leader who helped the African Leadership network expand into several new countries, while also overseeing community investment in orphan care and famine relief projects.

President John Walter said, “Reverend Dube’s commitment to pastors and teachers in southern Africa will be felt in that region for a generation. We are in prayer for his family, friends, and community, and are thankful for his tireless service to others.”

A funeral service was held on September 4th in Bulawayo.
