    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.

    Industrial Hemp has been approved for producers to grow by the Montana Department of Ag.

    Hemp is a multi-purpose agricultural crop delivering seeds, fibers and bio-active chemicals for a number of uses and markets. Industrial hemp is defined in federal and Montana statute as Cannabis sativa L. that contains no more than 0.3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Industrial hemp is authorized as an alternative agricultural crop by the Montana Legislature, Section 80-18-101 through 80-18-111 of Montana Code Annotated.

    This law provides a framework for commercial industrial hemp production in Montana following approval by the federal government. Provisions added to the 2014 Farm Bill (Section 7606) defined industrial hemp under federal law and recognized state agricultural departments’ authority to develop research pilot programs to study the growth, cultivation, and/or marketing of industrial hemp.

    Montana Industrial Hemp Pilot Program

    Industrial hemp may be grown in Montana only by the Montana Department of Agriculture (MDA) through the Industrial Hemp Pilot Program or by institutions of higher education in Montana for agricultural or academic research. Only seed purchased from the Pilot Program seed repository or ordered from a DEA-approved source can legally be planted in Montana. Industrial hemp is currently regulated as a Schedule I Controlled Substance by the federal government. Persons who violate state or federal laws regarding hemp may be subject to federal prosecution under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Refer to the DEA website for more information.

    Applicants must agree to comply with Section 80-18-101 through 80-18-111 of MCA and ARM 4.19.101-106, adopted on March 10, 2017. An industrial hemp license is required prior to planting hemp seeds in Montana.

    Working together to strengthen and support noxious weed management efforts in Montana.


    Networking – To create and sustain channels that encourage collaboration, participation, and sharing of knowledge and expertise.

    Education – To provide non-biased and balanced collection, sharing, and dissemination of noxious weed knowledge to the membership and the public.

    Research Assistance – To gather input from members to ascertain research priorities, to communicate priorities and needs to the research community, to assist in the funding process, and to relay research results back to the membership.

    The MWCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit, which was started in the 1960’s by extension agents and weed managers. Over the years the MWCA has expanded to include professional weed managers, weed control businesses (grazing, commercial applicators, bio-control agent providers, re-vegetation and planning specialists), ranchers/farmers, educators, researchers, students, government officials at the city, county, state and federal levels, recreationalists, visitors to Montana and private landowners. We are funded primarily through membership dues, fees from educational trainings and publications, specialty plate license plate fees, and grants and donations.
