PC(USA) ordains 1st Iranian Pastor

on June 17, 2010

Hey, this is a small world. Mansour Khajehpour was just ordained by Seattle Presbytery as the first Iranian to become a PC(USA) minister of Word and sacrament.

I knew Mansour (a little) in seminary. He was in the class two years after mine, so we didn’t have any classes together. One of my kids was friends with one of his kid’s friends, though. They were in the building on the opposite side of Emmons Drive, facing Loetscher Place. Small world!

Congratulations to the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Scott, Kansas, where Mansour will serve.
