Sasan Tavassoli

Mission Staff

Coordinator of Iranian Ministries


About Our Partner

In 2007, 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 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 is ministry with non-Iranian Christians who wish to engage in effective witness among Muslims. He is an ordained minister of Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO). Sasan is married to Kenna. They have two children, Karisa and Kalen, and make their home in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Impact

Sasan Tavassoli leads Iranians inside and outside of Iran to faith in Christ, trains leaders for the house churches of Iran through multiple ministry platforms, and educates North Americans about Islam and how God is at work bringing Muslims to Jesus Christ.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $90,000 for support and ministry funds.
