In December 2015, Jude Project TALIM Ministries started a partnership to renew and continue the publication of Shaban magazine. Shaban— meaning Shepherd in Farsi—is a quarterly magazine published to encourage, train, and equip Farsi speaking ministers and pastors all around the world. The new Shaban is heavily focused on pastoral training, biblical preaching to ensure house church movement among Farsi speaking world is focused on fundamental sound biblical doctrines. Today, our focus is to enrich the content of this magazine to be able to cover more topics the Iranian and Afghan church is wrestling with.
Through our partnership with the New Growth Press, we have started translating and publishing 100 mini-books on Christian counseling. These books serve as a quick reference guide to counselors and pastors among Iranian believers throughout the word who wrestle with whole host of issues from depression to abortion and pornography. We have completed 8 projects so far and we hope to finish this project by 2020 with 100 books available to our partners all around the globe working with Farsi speakers. You can support us to complete this project.
Our team is working on translating and publishing three confessional reformed documents in Farsi: Westminster Shorter Catechism, Westminster larger Catechism, and Heidelberg Catechism. All three projects are funded by our friends and supporters in 2017 and we hope to deliver all three by Fall 2018.
