In January 2015 Pars held its 16th Formation Conference, the first of the new year, where 15 student-leaders gathered together for a full week of fellowship, worship, lectures, discussions, workshops and one-to-one mentoring. Dr. Mehrdad Fatehi led sessions on Christian Worldview: The whole Gospel for the whole of Life, with particular focus on how this discussion speaks specifically into today’s Persian context, while Dr. Sasan Tavassoli led sessions on An Emotionally Healthy Church. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and encouraging time for students and facilitators alike, a space to grow in knowledge and skills and in friendship and trust. More than anything, it was so precious to gather together in worship, to sing the Lord’s praises together and to lift the Persian church and her needs to the Lord’s mighty hands.
