Shapoor Ahmadi

Associate Evangelist

Shapoor Ahmadi is the Founder of Operation Promises, and part of the leadership of the Liverpool Iranian Church. He is an Associate Evangelist with Mission24.
Shapoor, a Civil Engineer and former asylum seeker from Iran, is all too familiar with the fears and struggles that refugees experience after leaving their war-torn homelands or oppressive governments. Now based in Liverpool, he pastors the Liverpool Iranian Church and leads the Middle East outreach department of Mission24.

Shapoor is familiar with the religious identity that keeps many immigrants in bondage, a bondage that appears to be weakening as more and more new arrivals in Europe are expressing interest in learning about Jesus, and the salvation, hope and life He offers.

As a former devout Muslim, Shapoor is uniquely qualified to reach immigrants, especially those who call Islam their faith. Fluent in Farsi, and conversant in Turkish, he can easily communicate and explain the foundations and Biblical truths of the Christian faith to his brothers and sisters from the Middle East, other parts of Asia and from Africa. In addition, his first-hand knowledge of Islam has equipped him with a special advantage when it comes to countering misunderstandings, objections or misconceptions that many Muslims have about Jesus in general.

Shapoor’s ministry aims to reach more refugees in the city of Liverpool  and further afield through visiting local hostels and befriending refugees, partnering with churches throughout Europe to reach refugee communities, holding training events and conferences for believers in the Near East and running a 'House of Prayer' in Liverpool.
