Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (P.H.D) is a Christian religious organisation founded in 2010 and led by Walter Magaya who is a self-proclaimed prophet. The organisation rose to prominence around 2012 when it was increasingly reported that the membership was growing very fast and widespread reports of miracles taking place. The church organisation was formed on the backdrop of the apparent working of miracles by its founder.

Founding

Magaya has said that he formed the church after returning from a trip to Nigeria's Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) where the leader of that church, Temitope Balogun Joshua (commonly referred to as T. B. Joshua) advised him that he (Magaya) had a lot of work to do in Zimbabwe. Magaya said he returned to find 120 people waiting for him and as he started working miracles for these people, more and more people would come to his meetings.[1]

Humiliation by TB Joshua

In April 2014, PHD Ministries was humiliated after TB Joshua said they had lied about plans to bring the SCOAN church leader to Zimbabwe as well as that Magaya's wife had been trained at SCOAN to be a prophetess. PHD Ministries spokesperson, Oscar Pambuka, had told the media that they had invited TB Joshua to Zimbabwe for an event. Pambuka also said that Magaya's wife would be in Nigeria to receive training. "Magaya’s wife will be in Nigeria for the next two months where she will be taught to become a prophetess,”'Pambuka said.[3]
