Ani Brutyan

Ani was first introduced to Young Life in 2006 while living in the same apartment building as Arman and L​ilit, Regional Directors in Armenia. Through their friendship Ani began attending Young Life and accepted Jesus at camp.
Aram Gevorgyan

Aram had already been a Young Life club kid for five years when a personal visit by his leader led him to open his heart to Jesus and make a commitment. Now Aram is part of a team of leaders in a new area of Yerevan called Shengavit.
Aram Meliqyan

Aram became a believer after attending his first Young Life camp when he was 19. Local leaders befriended and helped disciple his passion to follow Jesus.
Arman Asatryan

Arman grew up during a very difficult time in Armenia's history. The dissolution of the Soviet Union led to a dark and cold time in his country, and he felt little hope.
Arsen Harutyunyan

Arsen came to know Jesus at a Young Life camp in 2006. As he grew in his faith he also grew in his desire to join the ministry of Young Life.
Arsen Sargsyan

Arsen grew up going to church, but it wasn’t until he was attending the Yerevan University and asking questions about his faith that he personally got to know God. He joined the Young Life staff in 2015.
Lilit Asatryan

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Lilit felt her life was turned upside down. She was looking for something to depend on when she heard about Jesus.
Narek Ayvazyan

Narek was first drawn to Young Life because of the friendships he developed. He met Jesus as his friend in 2009.
Narine Manucharyan

Narine remembers feeling like she had every reason to be happy as a child, but still an emptiness persisted. It wasn’t until she met Jesus through Young Life that she felt loved and complete.
Rushan Arsenyan

Rushan was active in his village church and came to Young Life through their flute club. Now he teaches other kids to play the flute, builds friendships with them, and invites them to Young Life.
Sergey Sargsyan

In 2009 Sergey was invited to a Young Life winter camp. He liked how kind the leaders were to him and the interesting things that were discussed.
Tereza Brutyan

Tereza grew up going to church with her grandmother. She remembers fondly the Bible stories she would hear.
Vardan Balyan

Vardan came to know the Lord when he prayed and his daughter was healed. Since that day, Vardan has kept his promise to follow God with all of his life.
