About Afshin Ziafat:
Afshin was born in Houston, Texas, to Iranian Muslim parents. His family moved to their native country of Iran when he was two years old and stayed until the Islamic Revolution caused them to flee back to the United States. In the second grade, Afshin was given a Bible by a tutor who was teaching him the English language. He read that Bible 10 years later as a senior in high school and came to faith in Christ. Ultimately, his family would disown him because of his Christian faith, and he began to understand the call of Christ on each of our lives—to follow Jesus regardless of the cost. For over a decade, he has traveled around the world proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ at churches, retreats, camps, conferences, and missions. Afshin is the Lead Pastor at Providence Church in Frisco, Texas, serves on the Board of Directors for Vertical Bible Study at Baylor University, and partners closely with Elam Ministries to train Iranian pastors in the Middle East. Join us as Afshin shares his story of God’s faithfulness, and reminds us that the love of Christ is the greatest treasure in life.
