Sasan Tavassoli

The Outreach Foundation

Since 2007, The Outreach Foundation has been serving the Iranian people, both inside and outside Iran, who have been turning to Christ in unprecedented numbers in spite of persecution.

In that year, The Outreach Foundation called the Rev. Dr. Sasan Tavassoli to serve as a missionary among Iranians in Iran and among the Diaspora. Dr. Sasan Tavassoli is a former Shi’ite Muslim from Iran. In 1985, Sasan came to faith in Christ as the result of the ministry of a group of American missionaries while he was living in Portugal. He has devoted his life to building up the body of Christ among Iranians through a ministry of teaching that is carried out in three overlapping circles of work. The first is ministry with Iranian Christians, both inside and outside of Iran. The second is a satellite teaching ministry focused on Iranian believers. The third circle is ministry with non-Iranian Christians who wish to engage in effective witness among Muslims.

Sasan graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary, Columbia Theological Seminary and earned his PhD at Birmingham (UK). He is an ordained minister of the Synod of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Iran, a partner church of the PC(USA). 

Sasan is married to Kenna and they have two children, Karisa and Kalen. The Tavassolis make their home in Atlanta, Georgia.
