Soleimani, Iran, and the Gospel

The death of Qasem Soleimani. Coronavirus. The shooting down of Ukrainian flight PS752. Iran has been in the news a lot lately, but it’s critical that Christians look beyond the headlines. How are Iranians and Persians worldwide processing these events—and what are the implications for the spread of the gospel among Shia Muslims? This week, Scott and Alex discuss the spiritual state of Iranians across the globe with an Iranian missionary and church planter.

He and his wife has ministered extensively in the underground church in Iran, and they continued on to serve and resource believers and churches for Farsi-language evangelism and discipleship. He is now planting and leading a Persian church in Canada. Hear our previous interview with him here.
