Christian Illusionist, Speaker, Former Muslim, Follower of Jesus
Christian illusionist, Zak Mirzadeh is capturing the attention of his generation for one single purpose, to share the Good News of Jesus. Zak’s new show captivates the audience while illuminating the grace of God. His story of conversion from a Muslim to a follower of Jesus is not only timely, but also incredibly redemptive.
Zak’s ability to create mind blowing illusions draws in every person to become a participant. He interweaves his personal story throughout the show to communicate God’s plan of redemption.
As a child Zak Mirzadeh experienced life as a Muslim, faithful to his religion, and praying five times every day. Due to an incredible set of circumstances, Zak grew up in a fatherless household. At the age of seventeen, Zak was confronted with a reality that was very different from his upbringing. He was brought face to face with the TRUTH of who JESUS is. As a part of the show, Zak weaves in his story of what it was like to grow up in a religious household and how the Gospel of Jesus transformed his life.
“I have personally discovered that Christianity is different from any other religion in the world.”
