School of Theology & Leadership
We are working toward the production of a Persian-language Bachelor in Christian Theology & Ministry. Till now we have completed the production of the First and Second year – Certificate and Diploma – and we are offering it to students from Ir and all over the world. This is a hybrid program, that trains students through a blend of Online Classes and Tutoring, week-long Formation Conferences, and a robust Mentoring and Ministerial Practice scheme. We are a candidate for Accreditation with the European Council for Theological Education.
Our team of counsellors provide in-person and online counselling treatment for our students, their families and the wider Iranian Christian community. We also provide training in Christian Counselling through video-based packages via our School of Theology and Leadership, and through day-events and workshops held in the Iran region and the diaspora.
Iranian Leaders Forum
Our biannual weeklong gathering empowers leaders to respond in theologically robust and Christ-like ways to the challenges and opportunities facing the Persian-speaking church and society today. The Forum strives to catalyse unity and collaboration between emerging and established leaders working in the Persian-speaking world.
We write, translate, and publish high quality books on Theology, Bible, Church, Leadership, Discipleship and Missions in the Persian language. These are used by our School and are also made available to the wider Persian-speaking Christian community through the Pars Online Shop.
Shagerd Website & Magazine
Our interactive website and quarterly journal, published in digital and print form, makes available compelling video and reading material on what a Christ-centered life looks like in today’s Persian- speaking church and world, advancing a dynamic conversation between Christianity and Iranian culture. We also run a seasonal podcast.
