CarePortal exists to help vulnerable children and families. CarePortal is a technology connecting platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in our community to our attention.

Caseworkers in local agencies uncover the needs and then CarePortal makes local churches and community members aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond.

IRAN

Elam

These are truly significant days for the Persian-speaking church. Widespread discouragement and disillusionment with the Islamic regime in Iran has led many Iranians to search outside of Islam for truth and meaning. Many are turning to Christianity and encountering the saving and redeeming love of Jesus.

Elam’s Mission:

Elam Ministries was founded in 1990 by senior Iranian leaders with a mission to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region and beyond. Christ Community partners with Elam Ministries to support their outreach and equipping efforts through prayer, educational events, financial support and an annual Bible drive.

Jesus Speaks Farsi – Podcast

The church in Iran is one of the fastest growing evangelical movements in the world today. Join us as we hear stories from Iranian men and women about how the church is growing in unprecedented ways, fueled by the simple belief that Jesus is alive.
