SAT-7 PARS broadcasts to millions of Persian-speakers in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan.
Many people in repressive, economically stagnant Iran view life as bleak and hopeless. SAT-7 PARS exists to counter this widespread desperation with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Through SAT-7 PARS (“PARS” is a Farsi word referring to Persian culture), Farsi-speaking Christians both within and outside Iran can share their faith with seekers and encourage their fellow believers. The message they bring is both life-giving and life-saving. More than 60 percent of Iran’s 81 million-strong population are under thirty, and many of these young people are so dissatisfied with their society that they turn to drugs or even suicide.
Recognising this desperate need, SAT-7 PARS broadcasts original daily programs for youth, as well as for women and children. Viewers are encouraged to call in to the channel’s live shows to join in and receive prayer. SAT-7 PARS also broadcasts teaching programs to support both Iran’s oppressed Christians, and the free-to-worship Armenian and Assyrian ethnic minority groups.
