Ministry Partner: Hovig Bajanian

Yerevan, Armenia

Hovig Bajanian has served in different areas of Canadian church ministries since 1990, including that of a pastor-teacher. Before heeding the Lord’s call for full-time pastoral ministry, Hovig worked for over a decade as a mechanical designer, primarily in the aerospace industry. He is a graduate of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and The Master’s Seminary where he completed the Doctor of Ministry program in expository preaching (2018). Since 2017, Hovig continues to oversee the theological verification of translated works in Armenian; especially that of Dr. MacArthur’s.

Hovig loves to exposit the Word of God. As an under-shepherd of Christ, his joy is to serve the Lord’s church and mentor like-minded men who would do the same. His passion is to teach and help prepare future pastors and other leaders for the work of the ministry. Hovig is blessed to be married to Sveta (2001) and they have two dear children. Their daughter studies at The Master’s University while their son looks forward to the same, this Summer.

While Hovig was pastoring in Canada, the Lord providentially presented the opportunity to the Bajanians to serve with GMI/TMAI in Armenia: the very place where Hovig and Sveta first met and later got engaged. Being both of Armenian descent, and hearing of the need in Armenia for sound biblical teaching in line with expository preaching, the Bajanians prayerfully answered the Lord’s call to minister there under the leadership of Grace Community Church and in partnership with The Mount Bible Church (both in Los Angeles).

Hovig is currently active in Armenia with preaching and teaching opportunities. He is also studying at The Master’s Seminary in the Master of Theology program, PhD track.
