A training session for Iranian Christians
In the past, the Islamic government of Iran banned Christian seminaries from operating within the country.
The lack of formal training centers prevents most local pastors from receiving practical, hands-on theological instruction. Recently, some Iranian Christians who lead a network of house churches in Iran traveled 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. Pray that Iranian pastors receive the necessary training they need to lead their flocks.
