DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
As our Freedom Connection Leadership Training has drawn increasingly more of the young generation of Iranians and Afghanis, the VOF has established international training bases in Istanbul, Turkey – Yerevan, Armenia- Dubai, United Arab Emirates to accommodate the growth. These bases are also hosting Iranian churches, which allows us to bring a full life giving worship and church service experience to those Farsi speaking Muslims and ex-Muslims every week through our international team and our USA team via live stream technology.
In 2009, we launched our Freedom Connection Training Centers. Through the medium of our house churches and the technology of an iPod and other electronic devices, as well as live streaming we have established solid trainings and equipped multitude of Farsi-speaking trainers in Farsi communities both in Iran and abroad.
With over 450 hours of digital training classes, we send our digital training school into Iran on an iPod or other electronic devices, which enables a more secure and consistent delivery of the training than other larger and less secure mediums. These classes allow us to train emerging leaders with disciplines for every sector of the culture in Iran.
With issues such as depression, high drug addiction, unemployment, poverty, and prostitution, the Iranian youth are in much need of answers and direction in life. Javanan TV will offer relevant answers 24 hours a day.
Javanan TV Network is a launch of a new era for Iranian television as he first reality show network which deals with the most predominant issues of the culture on daily basis.
Forwarded by David Barton of Wall Builders International, this book is an invaluable resource to the Church who has largely ignored its biggest and most rapidly growing opposition.

ESTABLISH: to bring about permanently
FREEDOM: liberty & power to determine action
Thus far, we are seeing Freedom Connection Churches flourish among Farsi-speaking people throughout Iran, Turkey, Armenia, USA and many European cities.
Our vision is to train and equip 1000 emerging leaders to plant 1000 life giving Peyvande Azadi house churches in every city and village of Iran by the end of 2018.
We have had hundreds of emerging leaders trained and equipped since our first training in 2008. Even with daily persecutions and threats to their lives they have served Christ with resolve and absolute commitment.
Training leaders to train leaders and so on is our model of church planting. Every week we continually train leaders in multiple nations in the Middle East to carry out our vision of 1000 churches along with semi annual training conferences in Middle Eastern nations.
We are confident that we can turn the tide of hopelessness in Iran and empower a generation to take a stand for justice and freedom through the power of God.
The LORD your God has multiplied you, and here you are today, as the stars of heaven in multitude. May the LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you! (Deuteronomy 1:10-11 NKJV)
In addition to Bibles, we are equipped with training resources that have been translated in Farsi by us to further our reach and to equip trainers throughout the regions we work in.

Kamran Karimi founded The Voice of Freedom, originally called Global Exploits Ministries, in 2000. As an Iranian born US citizen, Kamran accepted the call of God to serve the Lord and people of his native born country. Iran is a closed-door nation, meaning that the Gospel cannot be preached openly and as such, it requires a unique wisdom for reaching its people.
In 2001, we began exploring a new direction from the Lord by researching the use of television aired via satellite to reach into Iran with the message of faith and freedom through Jesus Christ. As a result, in 2003, we began airing a weekly program entitled Nedae Azadi, which translated from Farsi means The Voice of Freedom. By 2006, we began airing the program daily and its influence has become significant in helping to reshape the culture of Iran and the lives of Iranians.
The Voice of Freedom has evolved into a church planting organization established to help equip Iranian nationals, reshape Iranian culture and establish freedom in the Iranian social climate. The Voice of Freedom centers on the person of Jesus Christ and his love for all humanity and His desire that they be free of all oppression.
The VOF continues to air television programs into Iran and Iranian communities around the globe. Because 75% of the Iranian population is under the age of 30, The Voice of Freedom specializes in developing the current and emerging generations of Iranians and seeks to reach and train them with the reality of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Here at The VOF our passion is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Muslims and to see their cultures and societies be transformed into ones of freedom in Christ. We also desire to raise awareness among Christians and non-Islamic nations concerning the spiritual and natural effects of Islam on people and cultures.
