Who We Are

We are a multi-generational church founded by Armenian immigrants who believe everyone is important to God — from the least to the greatest.

We are first-generation Armenian Americans and second, third, and fourth generation Armenian Americans! We are non-Armenians married to Armenians. We are non-Armenians who love the Armenian people. We are Armenians and non-Armenians who speak Western Armenian, Eastern Armenian, or no Armenian at all. Some of us speak many languages; some of us speak only English. But we all speak the love of Jesus Christ!

We are Christians first. We are Evangelical Christians. We are Protestant Christians. We come from may other backgrounds as well, including Apostolic, Orthodox, Catholic, and a variety of other traditions.

We are from Armenia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Argentina, Egypt, and many other parts of the world, and many other parts of the United States.

We love the Lord Jesus Christ. We love each other. And we love all those who would come to worship the risen Lord.

We support missions to Armenians all over the world through the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA). We are part of the Armenian Evangelical Union of North America (AEUNA). We support Haigazian University. We are everywhere proclaiming the gospel and reinforcing the work of Armenian missionaries, pastors, teachers, and relief workers who lift up the name of Jesus Christ.

Our Services

What are services like?
Biblical preaching in English and Armenian. Most of the service is in English. Parts are in Armenian. Traditional hymns with some occasional contemporary music. Children's church/Sunday school during the service for children in grade school. Every service ends with a rousing singing of the Hyer Mer. Sample Sermon: https://archive.org/details/1Romans117DRLAEC

What is the community like?
We are a congregation that has recently reversed a season of decline. While many members are older, we are seeing a new influx of young families, young adults, single adults, and families with young children.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you don't yet consider yourself a Christian, you are welcome to come and seek truth with us. Everyone is welcome to come, learn and worship-- regardless of faith, race, ethnicity, nationality, orientation, or background.

Leadership View all

Dave Leigh

Dave Leigh

Rev. Leigh is our interim badveli. He holds an M.A. in theological studies from Wheaton College, in Wheaton, IL. While Pastor Dave is not Armenian, there is no one who has a greater love for the Armenian people! His preaching of the Bible is exegetical, educational, inspiring, and engaging! He came to us in February of 2010 as a guest speaker. Eventually he became our regular preacher, and more recently our interim pastor, while we continue our search for a full-time Armenian minister who is fluent in both English and Armenian.
