Armenian Evangelical Emmanuel Badaniatz Kicks Off with 64 Juinors

Armenian Evangelical Torosian school has opened its doors to many new students. Along with the start of the 2008-2009 academic year at Torosian school, the Armenian Evangelical Emmanuel Church Badaniatz kicked off its weekly gatherings and sessions.

On the first day (Oct. 18) we went up to Kchag, the summer camp center, with 64 junior youth participating, who have been eagerly waiting for Badaniatz to start. They enjoyed the presence of their friends, and the worship time and also the food that was served.

This year, the Badaniatz Leadership Committee has planned a different program, where the first week a guest speaker would introduce the subject, and the week following we would divide into groups and study the subject further.

The leadership committee, all volunteers, is composed of:
- Mr. Manoug Ibitian, as the chairman
- Mrs. Jimmy (Kozman) Ohanian, as the secretary
- Mr. Hagop Gojigian, as the treasurer
- Mr. Raffi Chilingirian, as a member
- Mr. Mike Hagopian, as a member
- Mr. Jano Baghboudarian, as a member
- Ms. Maria Jertidian, as a helping member
