Every day Iranians are coming to Christ. Every week, new house churches are being born in Iran, despite persecution. Elam exists to strengthen and expand the rapidly growing church in Iran and beyond. Much is happening, but - with your help - many more can be reached and discipled in the heart of the Muslim world.
 - While our work is primarily focused on the Iran region, we also serve Iranians and Afghans (Persian speakers) in the diaspora. Particularly in the UK and Europe, we assist and equip local churches as they reach out and disciple Persian speakers in their communities. We'd love to start a conversation about how we can support you in your ministry among Iranians and Afghans. -


Our mission is to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region and beyond. To accomplish this we:

  • TRAIN Persian-speaking leaders for fruitful, effective ministry 
  • EQUIP the Persian-speaking church with Bibles and resources for evangelism and discipleship
  • SEND the Gospel through trained evangelists, church-planters and the media into the Persian-speaking world.


Our desire is that all the people of Iran would have the opportunity to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and follow him as disciples. We pray that Iran will continue to grow in becoming a missionary sending nation, reaching Muslims in other countries for Christ.


  • Safar (which means 'journey' in Persian) is a 30-step discipleship journey available in both Persian (Farsi) and English. It is designed to be used one-to-one between a 'hamsafar' ('co-traveller') and a new Christian in the first 100 days of the new believer's faith.
  • Kalameh.com is our Persian-language website where all Elam's video teaching materials, worship content, helpful articles and much more can be found, as well as our online bookshop where you can purchase high quality Bibles and Christian books. 'Kalameh' means 'Word' in Persian.
  • Iran 30 is a 30-day prayer guide to help you intercede with understanding for the nation of Iran. Hundreds of thousands of believers around the world have been praying for Iran using this guide, and you are invited too!
