Rev. Greg Haroutunian
Rev. Vache Sevajian
Rev. Vache Sevajian was born and raised in Pasadena, Ca. He went to Maranatha HS in Pasadena and went to UCLA on a track scholarship, also playing football there. After UCLA, he was a NFL free agent for a few short years, but left athletics to go into full time ministry. He went to Talbot School of Theology where he received an M.Div. He currently serves as Pastor of Youth Ministries at Armenian Brotherhood Bible Church in Pasadena, CA and also teaches Bible at Sahag Mesrob Armenian Christian School. He loves sports, outdoor activities, Armenia, food, people, and God.
Badveli Greg Haroutunian is a native Californian who lives to follow Christ wholeheartedly and to set others free to become like Jesus. He is the Pastor at First Armenian Presbyterian Church in Fresno. He met his wife, Sossy, in Ainjar, Lebanon and they have three children, each one born in the different city where he’s served as a pastor: Mark in Chicago, Ani in Fresno & Alexan in Boston. He loves to run and hopes to run a marathon in each of the cities that he’s lived: San Francisco, Chicago, Beirut, Washington, D.C., Fresno and Boston. If you can guess which one he’s run so far, any of his childhood nicknames or his family’s motto, prizes can be yours!

COVID Update (June 1, 2020)
Welcome to 2020! Who would have predicted that we would be social distancing and be in isolation? Despite this unfamiliar way of life, we know that our Lord is still Lord no matter what is going on around us. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer. 29:11. We put our trust in Him.
We are sad to announce that Camp Arevelk 2020 will not run based on the decision made by the NY Board of Health, which has announced that there will be no in-person camping programs in the state of NY this summer. Even though traditional camp is not possible, we will not let this situation stop our community from sharing in Christian fellowship, building friendships, worshiping and praising God. The camp committee has been meeting and prayerfully discussing what Camp 2020 will look like. In the coming weeks, you will receive a survey that will help us determine how to best meet the needs of our campers. We value your input and your responses will help us prepare for a new vision for ministry this summer. Stay tuned for the survey and more details!
