Mani Erfan- Farsi Mani Erfan-Farsi
Pastor Mani Erfan, co-founder of Christ for the Crescent Moon Evangelical Ministries with his wife Jennifer, was born a Shiite Muslim in Iran who immigrated to United States in 1983. Through a miraculous encounter with Jesus Christ, Mani came to know the Lord in 1987 and has been in active ministry amongst Islam since 1993. Mani and Jennifer have been married since 1995 and have a daughter named Esther and a son named Micah.
While Mani was serving as the senior pastor of the Iranian Church of Houston, God gave him a vision to directly reach out to the nation of Iran though the power of satellite television. This seemed impossible at first, as there were no Farsi language Christian satellite channels available in Iran, but this soon changed in December 2001 and CCM Ministries aired the first Farsi Christian program ever in Irans history. Over 2,000,000 Households watched our first program.
