Thanks for dropping by.

According to common practice, this is where I should start writing in the third person. But that ain’t me.

My name is Armen, and I’m a Christian. I am also the husband of a beautiful wife, and father of three wonderful girls.

I have had the privilege of being the minister of Faith Free Presbyterian Church, Greenville SC, since January 2019. Prior to that I was the minister of Calgary Free Presbyterian Church, Alberta, Canada.

As a side note, the Free Presbyterian Church is a small denomination that originated out of the theological compromise of the Irish Presbyterian Church in 1951. It eventually extended its reach beyond the UK and Ireland and has churches and mission works across the world. The churches established in North America came together to form the Free Presbyterian Church of North America (FPCNA) in 2005.

This website has a fairly lengthy history (relative to Internet years). It started as a blog and the first post was in 2006. From 2007 to 2009 I ministered in Australia. During that time I had a blog which I used to keep family and friends up to date on various things. After entering Bible College in 2009, I had less need for the website and I retired it in 2011.

In June 2020, I resurrected this domain to serve as a hub for various ministry related materials, which I trust God will use to magnify our Lord Jesus and extend His kingdom. Much of the original material on the website was lost (some of it did not date well anyway), but I’ve resurrected bits and pieces. It’s interesting to look back and see how far you have come.

I count myself very blessed. My sins are forgiven and I’m a child of God, and since my conversion to Christ at 19 years of age, all I’ve wanted to do is share the gospel. My willingness to go wherever God leads has taken me from preaching on the streets of Northern Ireland to pulpit ministry in Australia, Canada, and America.

My faith in Christ directs every aspect of my life. If you’d like to know how I became a Christian, and how I came to be a Christian minister, I gave a brief testimony in May 2015, shortly after I arrived in North America to pastor Calgary Free Presbyterian Church. You can view that testimony below:
