MARYAM ROSTAMPOUR & MARZIYEH AMIRIZADEH
Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh were born into Muslim families in Iran. They both became Christians as young adults and met while studying theology in Turkey in 2005. Deciding to work together, they returned to Iran and began sharing their faith. In 2009, Maryam and Marziyeh were arrested in Tehran for promoting Christianity—a capital crime in Iran.
J.D. Greear is the pastor of The Summit Church, in Raleigh-Durham, NC and author ofGospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary (2011) and Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart: How to Know for Sure You Are Saved (2013). Two main things characterize The Summit Church: its gospel focus and sending culture.
