‘Alumni’ is a Latin word meaning, “nourished” or “fed”, it is used to refer to graduates. The name itself already defines those who are entitled to the privilege of joining a family of graduates from Rhema Bible Training Center Zambia (RBTCZ), who are interested in staying connected to what they received during their training and continue to grow in the knowledge of God.

Recharge small groups are healthy small groups of alumni in different locations who are of the same interest meeting consistently to share their victories and challenges, supporting each other spiritually and materially, as they remain recommitted to the Rhema spirit. The Recharge groups exist as platforms for communication, care and recommitment of RAAZ members to Rhema. They are accountability structures to help realize the Rhema Zambia mandate. We believe the successes of these small groups and our overall growth objectives is largely directly linked to four core values.
