Pastor Tamran - Using Language to Bridge Gaps

Pastor Tamran and his wife, Annette were born in Pakistan. They led a thriving ministry there until God sent them to the USA to help the church here reach Pakistanis living in the US. He and his wife have two young sons and they live in High Point, North Carolina. He also pastors the Point Church Urdu in Cary, North Carolina. He shares his perspective on how the ministry looks like now in 2020. He believes that God has allowed millions of people to come to the US so that they can be shown the love of Christ. His ministry’s role is to share the gospel with this international community. 

Pastor Tamran shares his belief that the local church must use its authority to pray for the international community. They need to engage with that community and to use language to bridge gaps. This language would help in inviting them and bringing them into the church. They want to reach their community and change the world. Yet if they are not reaching the whole community, they are really shooting themselves in the foot and in their strategy. There’s no limit to what God can do through the international communities - they can become the next Billy Graham and they can become church planters. 

He also talks about how he has seen God's work and the transformation stories that he has seen. Pastor Tamran shares the story of how one guy from a Muslim background had a dream where Jesus came to him. Because of his dream, he started reading the Bible and started following Christ. His life was changed and he started sharing the gospel with his family. This is one perfect example that you’ll never know when God will use a moment to change a person. 

Pastor Tamran believes that the best international community is the Bible and there’s no other better resource. Pastors are one of the resources that people can go to and those in the High Point area can be in contact with Pastor Tamran. And if God can do this in High Point, He is also doing that all across the US. There are pastors in other communities raising up training and encouragement as they reach the foreign-born internationals that God is moving into our community.
