There are thousands of Iranian and Afghan refugees in Serbia, Greece and Cypress who are in desperate need of clean water, food, clothing, and medical assistance. Discipleship for Iran mission team is raising funds for a couple of mission trips to Serbia, Greece, Cypress to go there and serve these refugees. They need hope! They want a brighter future! We can do this together!
We equip indigenous churches to make disciples and train leaders by providing our Leadership course as well as our Mission’s Training program in Serbia, Greece and Cypress. In addition we host leadership conferences throughout the year in target nations in these countries.
Through this ministry, the Lord miraculously paved the way for five Iranian churches to be planted. These Iranians meet in rooms that existing churches rent out.
In addition to paying rent, Discipleship for Iran helps to financially support the pastors of the host churches. Our Greatest challenge is being able to provide enough food for the ever-growing number of people attending the services. We hired two women to help feed the refugees, however, as the numbers increase, we will need to expand this team.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ's Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.

TRANSFORMING THE PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL LIVES
OF PEOPLE LIVING IN NATIONS HOSTILE TO THE GOSPEL
Here at Discipleship for Iran, we are driven by a single goal; to share the Good News of salvation which Jesus Christ has brought to our world with Muslims and help them grow in Jesus and become faithful disciples for His kingdom. Moreover, we equip the Persian church by holding conferences and training the Christian believers and leaders in person or resource them through social media and the internet by providing teaching materials including books, articles, Bible studies, Persian Bible commentaries, Persian worship songs, leadership lessons, and church planting courses. Our primary focus is house church planting in Iran.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20).
