2013 Bible Teacher
Rev. Shant Barsoumian has a passion for God's word and desires to make the Lord's name great. He has grown up in the Armenian Evangelical community and has been immensely blessed by it as well.
He has served a number of Armenian Evangelical churches in various capacities over the years and now serves as the pastor of the Armenian Congregational Church of Greater Detroit. Camp ministries have always held a special place in his heart since he came to faith at a Jr. High summer session of Camp Arev and desires that youth of all ages have a similar opportunity to know our great Lord Jesus Christ.
