IRAN: Church Leaders Receive Training

Jul 13, 2022 | VoM

In the past, the Islamic government of Iran banned Christian theological colleges from operating within the country. The lack of formal training centres prevents most local pastors from receiving practical, hands-on theological instruction.

Recently, some Iranian Christians who lead a network of house churches in Iran travelled to a nearby country where they learned how to conduct baptisms and communion services. Those leaders have since returned to Iran to model these essential Christian ordinances to other house church leaders.

More than 97% of Iranians are identified by the government as Muslims, but a significant segment of the population has abandoned Islam, and many have come to faith in Christ.

Please Pray

Praise God for this training opportunity. Pray the training will be further extended to strengthen the growing church in Iran.

Pray that many in Iran will trust Christ through the faithful witness of these church leaders.

Pray for those believers in Iran who face opposition from family, community, and the Iranian authorities.
