Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (P.H.D.) leader Walter Magaya has been making the news for the better part of last year and many have wondered who the prolific young preacher is. What is his background? The contribution that he has made to society?
Whatever the answers to those questions are, from what we’ve managed to see from his profile there are lessons for all of us to watch and learn (maybe even replicate). Here goes:
1. Get married

Prophet Magaya has taken heed to the bible’s teachings that show that “it is not good for man to be alone”. He is married to Tendai Katsiga-Magaya and they are blessed with two children – Yadah Makanaka and Walter Junior.
2. Get married to a banker
His lovely wife is not just a ‘preacher’s wife’ but is also a qualified banker. Every man needs to have someone that knows how to keep the money.
3. Be humble
Prophet Magaya is arguably one of the most humble preachers in Zimbabwe. This is exhibited by both his dress code (non-designer clothes) and the type of car he drives (less than $5000 Mazda Demio).
4. Start small
The birth of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (P.H.D.) was a moderate number of 40 congregants. That figure will clearly be disputed today due to the 50,000 strong attendance every service gets nowadays.
5. Know your boundaries
Prophet Magaya chooses not to walk in crowded areas to avoid causing unnecessary commotion and people getting hurt. At one time when walking in the city centre at least two people collapsed and fainted on meeting him.
6. Discover your calling
“I ventured from one business to another and I tried almost every project. I tried venturing into the kombi business, butcheries, shops and all forms of businesses you can think of but it was not my calling.”
7. Practice what you preach
While almost all church goers return a tithe (10% of your increase) and/or an offering Prophet Magaya has not only gone a step further but gone the whole 9 yards – he returns 90% and keeps the remainder.
