About Us

Who We Are

  • Nations in Praise (Home of FarsiPraise) is a group of lead worshipers dedicated to train worship leaders around the globe, provide extensive worship resources, encourage an innovative worship culture and spread Christ’s love through praise and worship among Farsi-speaking Muslims and Christians worldwide. 
  • The original site (FarsiPraise Ministries) was started by Dr. Fariborz Ansari (an Iranian worship leader) in 2001.  The site was blocked by Iranian Islamic government in 2007 and shortly after it was maliciously hacked in 2008.  It took 3 years to rebuild the archive and re-launch the site in 2011 under the new name of Nations in Praise.
