Shahrokh Afshar

Christian Vision Alliance Board Member
Founding Pastor Iranian Church on the WAY (Retired)
Founder and President Shahzam Factor

Shahrokh “Shah” Afshar came to the United States from the country of Iran to study Engineering in 1968. Little did he know God had a completely different plan for his life. Once living in the U.S. Shah enrolled as a student at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles where for the first time in his life he heard the Good News of Jesus. After giving his life to Christ in the early 1970s he finished his Engineering studies, graduated from college and went to work as an engineer for the county of Los Angeles. It was just a few short years later that Shah began to hear the calling of God on his life to leave his secular profession and to commit himself full time to the ministry. Shah is an original. He founded and pastored the first Iranian Christian organization in the United States. He has become instrumental in reaching the Muslim world with the Gospel. His work as a professor and as the Muslim World Mission Coordinator for Foursquare Missions International expanded his influence worldwide. As a former Muslim and seminary-trained leader, Shah shares unique insights with humor and wit. His passion is to communicate the relevance of Christ’s message to a skeptical generation.
