Sasan Tavassoli is a former Shi’ite Muslim from Iran. In 1985, while living in Portugal, a group of American missionaries ministered to Sasan. God used this ministry to bring him into a saving relationship.
Sasan has been involved in Iranian Christian communities as a teacher and later as a pastor for the last 20 years. Currently the main focus of Sasan’s ministry is producing teaching resources in the Farsi language for satellite TV broadcast into Iran, Afghanistan, and the rest of the Middle East and Europe. He also provides theological education through leadership conferences for believers in the Presbyterian and the underground house churches of Iran.
The Tavassolis live in Atlanta, GA. Sasan is a graduate of RTS (MA, 1994) and has received his PhD in Islamic Studies from the University of Birmingham (UK).
