DANIEL SHAYAN
Canada Visit - May 9-30, 2018

Rev. Daniel Shayan is a former Muslim from the Aga Khan community of the Shiite sect of Islam. He was born in Pakistan and brought up in India in a most fanatic Islamic society. Before becoming a Christian he was a student in a Shiite Muslim institute in India where he was training to become a leading Imam.

He was attracted by the uniqueness of Jesus Christ in the Quran. Islamic leaders strictly forbade reading of the books of the Jews and Christians. One day he met a group of Christians selling books from whom he obtained a copy of the New Testament and a written testimony of a Muslim who had become a Christian. Finally, after studying the Scriptures and traveling across India to meet this brother who was from an Islamic background, the Holy Spirit convicted Daniel of his own sin and his need for a Saviour. Daniel bowed his knee and received the grace of Christ in 1977.

Later he attended Calcutta Bible College and, following his graduation, he moved to Nagaland, a majority Christian state in Northeast India. He served as a lecturer in several Bible Colleges and served as Pastor in two Churches in Nagaland. He is the founding director of "Gospel for Children of Ishmael" an organization committed to reach Muslims in India and her neighbouring countries. Daniel directs a team of dedicated Christian workers, mostly of Muslim background.

Daniel is coming to Canada for his second tour to share his vision of reaching Muslims. Please contact our office to arrange to connect with Pastor Daniel Shayan.
