Iran From the Inside
Since 2001, Iran Alive
Ministries has been producing original daily programming with the message of
the Gospel for millions of Iranians. Broadcast over satellite, these programs
reach deep into the heart of Iran, touching individuals in the privacy of their
homes. With a low-cost satellite dish, Muslims in the Middle East and Europe
are able to receive these programs for free.
We have several million
faithful followers who watch our programs regularly. And with our new 24/7
satellite TV channel, Network 7, this opportunity is growing exponentially in
the transformation of Iran. To Livestream the Farsi programming the Lord is using to transform lives click here.
Over 55 million Iranians
have access to satellite TV. At any given time, 3-6 million viewers will be
watching our programs. Our satellite footprint reaches the Middle East, North
Africa and Europe. Network 7 gives us an opportunity to reach all people,
Muslims or not, throughout that region 24 hours a day.
Satellite TV is like a
secret weapon in the battle for Muslims’ souls. Authorities monitor many areas
of an Iranian’s life. However, no one can control the programs Iranians watch
in the privacy of their homes.
TV makes an effective, safe,
non-threatening, personal connection. It delivers evangelistic, discipleship or
leadership development efforts directly into people’s homes!

day from a Christian perspective. Iranians can hear God’s perspective on what

Satellite TV may be the only
Jesus some Iranians ever see.
Despite the crackdown on the
ban of satellite dishes in Iran, millions of Iranians have found ways to acquire
satellite dishes. In fact, they have made it a priority and are often
sacrificing food for weeks at a time to be able to afford this necessity that
allows them to connect with the outside world. It has been estimated that 45
million people in Iran have access to satellite channels and despite raids by
the authorities the number of satellite dishes is on the rise.
Since December 2001, Iran
Alive Ministries has been broadcasting a variety of TV programs during prime
time to millions of Iranian Muslims, Europeans and viewers from Middle East,
North Africa, Central Asia and Europe.

the door for thousands of Iranian Muslims to come to Christ each week. We have
a variety of shows geared toward children, women, youth and families. Our
broadcasts are also streamed on the Internet, drawing hundreds of thousands of
additional viewers worldwide.

and programming into the homes of Iranians and gives us the opportunity to
bring the gospel message into their private homes – in a safe, non-threatening
The exponential growth then
happens across Iran and transforms individuals, their families and communities.
At that point it is impossible to have accurate information on how many people
from a single broadcast or chat room come to know the Lord. The potential is
great in prime time TV.
Zari, a thirty year old
woman called into one of our weekly live broadcasts saying, “I am calling to
say, how grateful I am for your programs.
I was devastated and lost in my misery until I started watching your
programs. You might not know what
you are doing for forgotten people like us in Iran, but you are bringing hope,
light, and life into our lives”.
