Show Notes

On Sunday evening, February 11, when most of America was settling in to watch the Super Bowl a historic evening service was taking place in Richardson Texas, in the life of the PCA, and Christ’s church. This ordination and installation service, with over 240 in attendance had prayers, the sermon text, and signing done in both English and Farsi. PCA Stated Clerk Dr. Bryan Chappell delivered the sermon. This night was unique in that Hamid Hatami (RTS Dallas ’22) became the first Teaching Elder of Iranian descent and Muslim background believer to be ordained as a Teaching Elder in the PCA.

Rev. Hatami was installed as the President of Middle East Heritage Reformed Ministries (“MEHR”). MEHR is a reformed ministry training and equipping servants of Christ to plant biblically faithful churches throughout the Middle East.
