Northrise University was founded in January 2004. The vision was conceived in 1988 through the experiences of its founders Dr. Moffat and Mrs. Doreen Zimba. Born in Zambia, both suffered from the lack of educational opportunities. In faith the Zimbas left Zambia to attend a Bible college in Australia. Upon completion, God called them to Southern California where Dr. Zimba received his Doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary and Mrs. Zimba received her MBA in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix.
While on this educational journey, God strengthened their vision of starting a school in Zambia. Over time, He nourished their desire to impact the living conditions of Zambians through higher education. Thus the concept of Northrise University, an institution that empowers Zambians by providing an education that nourishes and develops the spiritual and economic capacity of the Zambian people, was initiated.
Their passion for the Northrise vision, their faith, and above all God’s guidance, brought other people to the vision, and support groups were founded in Australia, the United States, and in Zambia. Many people brought intellectual and financial resources, prayer and commitment to the project, and in January 2004 the vision of Dr. Moffat and Mrs. Doreen Zimba was realized.
Northrise University is the first nationally recognized private university in Zambia and today it is a fully functioning university, empowering its students daily with the skills to succeed in the workplace while living Christ-centered lives.

Rusangu University traces its historical roots in the Missionary endeavours of an American Missionary named William Harry Anderson who until 1903 was the Principal of Solusi Mission. He crossed over in the company of several African Adventist workers namely: Jacob Detcha, Philip Malomo, Jack Mahlatini Mpofu and Andrew Nyakana and established Rusangu Mission in 1905.
It initially opened in 1975 as Rusangu Ministerial School. It was the sole institution in the country that provided Ministerial training to most of the pastors serving the Zambian Adventist territory. It later had its name changed to Zambia Adventist Seminary to broaden the scope for the theological training that was being offered. In December 1993, a decision was made to re-locate it to Musofu in Chief Chitina’s area in Mkushi. However in 1994, the institution was closed so as to have adequate time to plan for its re-organization and upgrading.
In 1997, the institution’s name was again changed to Zambia Adventist College due to its extended intended mission of incorporating other academic and professional disciplines in addition to theology. In the year 2000, the college re-opened and began to run In-Service Theological Programmes at Riverside Farm Institute in Kafue in collaboration with Solusi University. This programme caters for the local pastors in meeting the requirements of the under-graduate Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Theological and Religious Studies. A historical land-mark was made in our country when the doors of the Rusangu University were finally opened to our Theology students in May 2003.
The need for a Seventh-day Adventist Institution of Higher Learning in Zambia is long overdue and indeed unquestionable. The move to establish an Adventist University in our country is irreversible. With such a large church membership of over one million Plus (1, 000, 000 plus) and of which about 70-80% is youth, the need has even become greater today than ever before. Needless to mention that, there are many of our Adventist youths and other youths in both public and private institutions who have had and continue to have no place to turn to for a balanced preparation for life.
