Hormoz is also the host of ICTV, a Christian call-in show in Farsi, beamed into Iran via satellite, where thousands each week make the decision to follow Jesus Christ.  In 1979, he was in the streets of Iran chanting "Death to America" as a good radical Muslim, then he came to USC to get a Ph.D. in computer engineering.  He was spiritually empty, with a divorce date set, and he reads the Koran one more time, not getting any direction.  Then he read the Gospel of Matthew and was confronted with the person of Jesus.  As a result, he came to faith in Christ at Church of the Open Door here in LA.  Today, he's happily married with three wonderful children. Iran has a population of 70 million, and 70% or 49 million of the them are under the age of 35.  Hormoz believes the Bible teaches that Iran will become a Christian nation before the Lord returns, Jeremiah 49.

558-608 – Wes Yoder, helped start the whole music genre of Contemporary Christian Music in the late 70's, launched the first Christian based speakers bureau (Ambassador Speakers Bureau) in the 80's, then launched a division called Ambassador Literary Agency where he's worked on "little" projects like The Purpose Driven Life, The Shack, and Mistaken Identity.  His book, Bond of Brothers: Connecting with Other Men Beyond Work, Weather and Sports (2010), "seeks to move men from silent and broken lives to the company of men where conversation, spiritual friendship and a life filled with friends and brothers define and complete God's purposes for them."  Wes and his wife, Linda, have two children and two grandchildren. ( 

 • How do you create the opportunities for guys to get real with one another?   The great fear, of course, is that the Bible says to "confess your sins to one another," and for every guy, that includes pornography – but you can't have that conversation unless you have that kind of relationship.  You nurture that relationship intentionally, by getting your playmates together and advancing the conversation beyond play, and into the truly important stuff.  Since all men struggle with porn, it's not "when was the last time you acted out," it's a bigger question – start with something like "How has pornography affected your view of women?  When was the first time you saw porn?" – and watch the conversation explode.  Another conversation starter is "What's the most surprising thing that has happened in your life?"  Or, to ask "Who are the six men who will carry your coffin?  Do they know your story?  Do they know you?"  This is just gold stuff!
