Growing demand for ministry training

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

In response to the growing demand for ministry training opportunities from Iranian believers, a local church in the Iran region has started using Elam's three-month training program. There are so many Iranian Christians who want to receive ministry training that unfortunately many have been waiting years for an opportunity to enroll on a course. This strategic new training centre will enable more Iranian believers to be trained and sent out in ministry sooner.

The centre has welcomed its first group of students, who have commenced their studies with enthusiasm. The students are overjoyed at the opportunity to delve deeper into the Bible and learn how to evangelize and minister to fellow Iranians. They have been studying for a few weeks and have already had the opportunity to be taught by internationally recognized Christian leaders. “I used to be a self centered person,” reflected one student, “but I feel like my knowledge and understanding of God and His will is growing and all I want is that He become the center of my life.”

Please join us in praising God for the training centre, for the coordinators, teachers and this first group of students. These students will go on to work in ministry among fellow Iranians, so let’s pray for wholly renewed hearts and minds during this important period when God is so intensely shaping and molding them.

Pray for

• Students to gain a deeper knowledge and love of God
• All the teachers involved in teaching different subjects, and the course coordinators
• The future ministries of the students
