Donald Fareed:

a Former Muslim’s Quest to Transform
a Nation

A former Shi’ite Muslim, Reverend Donald Fareed is fulfilling his call to reach Muslims for Christ. An ordained minister and founding pastor of the Bay Area Persian Churches of San Mateo and Santa Clara, he is also the founder and president of Persian Ministries International(PMI).

Through his ministries millions of Muslims have heard the Gospel and thousands received Jesus Christ.

Fareed and the PMI team are determined to continue reaching out to the estimated 100 million Persian-speaking people of the world, the majority of whom live in Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and the Southern part of Iraq. Fareed has teamed up with Muslim satellite television stations to broadcast a unique message of not only the gospel, but a message of democracy and religious freedom.
