Many turn to social media to connect and build each other up in Christ, as well as to find programming and resources to grow in their faith. TWR Canada’s Persian ministry is a small part of that online...

      Conferences are an important part of our Persian Ministry. They provide a safe location for believers to gather for teaching and fellowship.
