Pastor Ramin Parsa was born and raised as a devout Shiite Muslim in Iran.
After diligently practicing the religion and suffering under Sharia law, he was disappointed with Islam as his hunger and thirst for God could not be quenched.
When Ramin heard the Christian gospel on satellite TV at age 19, he committed himself to Jesus and his life was forever changed. Ramin fled Iran due to persecution.
He lived in Turkey for two years as a refugee and served as a missionary where he was arrested multiple times for spreading the gospel. After coming to the United States, he graduated from Rhema Bible College in Oklahoma.
He currently serves as the pastor of Good Shepherd Church in Los Angeles and as the president of Redemptive Love Ministries International.
Ramin travels the globe as an evangelist and preaches the gospel, encouraging churches with his personal story.
He was a TV host for five years and currently has a TV station where he creates Christian programs in order to reach out to the Muslim world. Ramin sees himself as a missionary to America where he feels the calling to awaken and help revive the church.
Ramin has traveled to Helena for missionary conferences in 2017 and 2018. He was recently interviewed on the 700 Club.
He is author of his newly published book entitled FROM ASHES TO GLORY – available for $20.00.
He is coming to Montana to be one of the speakers for the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3rd – at noon, at the State Capitol, in the Rotunda.
He will be staying in Helena during his time here (4/29-5/10) in which several speaking engagements have been scheduled.
