PLANTING CHURCHES IN IRAN AND BEYOND
In this 4-part series of Jesus Speaks Farsi, Joe, Jennifer and Dara Lynn talk with believers who are part of the growing church movement among Persian-speakers. Specifically, these stories offer insight into what on-the-ground church planting looks like in the Iran region and beyond.
While the idea of church planting is familiar to many of us in the Western church, planting a church in the Iran region looks quite a bit different from what we might imagine. We hope these conversations will give clarity to the challenges and triumphs of the Persian-speaking church today.
