Establish Ava Worship Academy
And Holding Seminars

In the year 2023, we established a virtual worship academy and hosted two transformative web-based worship seminars, with the embrace of 300 eager souls joining our digital congregation. The echoes of these virtual gatherings lingered in the hearts and minds of participants, as post-workshop surveys unveiled the distinctive essence and profound impact woven into the fabric of these sacred events.

We started our registration for the year-long worship course for 2024 on November 15th.

Folk Music Production

In the tender embrace of our creative journey, we birthed five enchanting Iranian worship folk songs, each note is the heartbeat of our culture, a harmonious fusion of spirituality and tradition. 
These songs are not just musical compositions. we hear the whispers of ancient landscapes and the echoes of heartfelt prayers. They are not just tunes; they are expressions of a profound desire to indigenize the Christian faith, to bridge the sacred and the cultural in a harmonious dance that echoes through the corridors of our collective spirituality.
May these songs be more than melodies; may they be vessels of connection, drawing hearts closer to the divine in a way that feels intimately woven into the tapestry of our Iranian identity.

Books Translation 

We obtained a license to translate and publish “For The Glory of God” by Daniel I. Block. The translation was completed in October 2023 and will serve as a one of theological and academic reference for the Worship Academy, will be published and distributed in 2024.

As we eagerly await the release, the anticipation is not just for a book but for a vessel of enlightenment that will infuse our worship community with a deeper understanding of divine glorification.

book publication

In the year 2023, we proudly birthed and shared a book named "Jewels in the Dark." This unparalleled creation is a treasury of Iranian Christian miniatures, a historical marvel that stands as a unique testament to artistic ingenuity. Within its pages, biblical sagas unfold through the delicate strokes of Iranian Miniatures, each tale eloquently presented in the form of poetry.
Miniatures created by Amy and Christopher Friesen

This extraordinary book transcends linguistic barriers, extending its heartfelt narrative in Persian, English, Dari, Turkish, and Arabic, adorning the virtual shelves of our website. "Jewels in the Dark" is not just a book; it's an emotional odyssey that beckons readers to explore the intersection of art, spirituality, and cultural richness. May its pages resonate with the biblical of diverse backgrounds, uniting them in the universal language of inspiration and creativity.


 Poetry Invocation

In November 2023, we held a poetry invocation on social media, inviting participants to write Christmas poems. We awarded prizes to three poems as an incentive for their creativity and encouragement.

One objective of this initiative was to assess the societal quality, evident in the submitted poems. Through this call, we also aimed to enhance and elevate the literary knowledge within the Christian community. Sadly, the Iranian Christian community faces significant deprivation and weakness in this domain.
Unfortunately, The gravity of the issue intensifies as societal awareness remains nonexistent. The lack of awareness regarding these shortcomings poses a more perilous threat than the weaknesses themselves.

We plan to host a similar event in 2024 with strategic enhancements, including the implementation of training courses.

Hold a Poetry Writing Course

Sadly, the Iranian Christian community faces significant deprivation and weakness in poems, and it's so obvious in our worship songs. Unfortunately, The gravity of the issue intensifies as societal awareness remains nonexistent. The lack of awareness regarding these shortcomings poses a more perilous threat than the weaknesses themselves.

Therefore, we have decided not to delay any longer and take a key step in this direction and organize a training course by one of the prominent professors of poetry and literature for the Christian community.

Epiphany Arts and Culture Foundation Cooperation

The role and position of cultural and artistic activities are among the key indicators of fostering growth and shaping the foundations of any society's identity. This is because when a belief becomes a part of a society's art and culture, it embeds itself in the hearts of the people and never fades away.

The Epiphany Arts and Culture Foundation was born with a grand vision and humble hands. Our growth is strangely tied to the growth of the Persian-speaking Church and community.
