Mike AnsariDr. Mike Ansari: Director of Operations, Mohabat TV

Mike was born into a secular Muslim family in the city of Shiraz, Iran. At the age of 7 he experienced the Iranian Islamic Revolution and witnessed the death of his 12-year-old cousin at the hands of a brutal Islamic regime. The events of his early life led him to question Islam, spirituality, and God. Through a series of events Mike came to the United States and dedicated himself to academia. His mother came to follow Jesus Christ through a dream. The change was so dramatic that Mike also gave his life to Jesus.

God gave Mike a burden to bring unity to the church and help equip worshipers inside Iran, so he started Farsi Praise Ministries. As director of operations for Mohabat TV, Mike serves and encourages the Iranian church. He oversees all productions and follow up efforts for the Mohabat TV channel.

A gifted worship leader and speaker, Mike is available to conduct TV and radio interviews, and speak at churches, youth groups and ministry events.
