Visual Story Network

Clyde & Shirin Taber

From 1985 to 2000, across three continents,
 Clyde and Shirin poured their lives into hundreds of students
 because someone cared enough to do it for 
each of them when they were in college.

While on a trip to North Africa in 2000,
 met Mustafa, a student open to
 the Gospel because of media he 
found through satellite television. On the same trip, a pastor he had just met surprised Clyde by 
saying “I sense the Lord is going to use you toreach millions through media.” Clyde couldn’t 
dismiss that God was confirming a new desire
 to use visual media to reach the lost.
 For the next seven years Clyde oversaw the
 development of some of the most innovative 
media-based outreach products in the 
world through the JESUS Film Project. In 2006, 
Clyde co-founded the 
Visual Story Network.

Shirin has a unique ministry as a writer and founder of the Middle East Women's Leadership Network. Her acclaimed book 
Muslim’s Next Door (Zondervan) encourages Christians to overcome their fear of their Muslim neighbor in order to share the love of Christ. 
Wanting All the Right Things (Relevant) targets women in their 20's and 30's, helping them be honest about their fears and aspirations, while encouraging them to look to Christ to meet their deepest needs.
