Christian education is at the heart of the Armenian Church’s mission. Indeed, the missionary in-reach and out-reach of the church takes place mainly through education.
With this perception and vision, the Armenian Church has always paid a pivotal importance to Christian education. It is organized and implemented through specific programs, projects and activities in accord with the concrete needs and contexts.
The Bible has central place in our educational work. The apostolic tradition, the ethical values and principles, the spiritual heritage of the Armenian Church also occupy an important place in educational programs.
Christian education is generally directed to the people. However, the target groups are children, young adults, and women.
Different programms of Christian education are organized in the community schools, Sunday schools, youth associations and youth centers. Different methodologies are also used according to the context and the target group. Besides Bible studies, lectures, seminars, publications, facilities of electronic communication and social media are used as the most effective ways for Christian education and formation.
The director is Bishop Meghrig Parikian.
