Ministry Partner: Hovig Bajanian

Yerevan, Armenia

Hovig Bajanian became a believer in Christ at a young age and 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 Dr. John MacArthur’s translated works in Armenian.

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 has joyfully begun studying at The Master’s University while their son looks forward to the same.

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 Mount Ararat Bible Church (both in Los Angeles).

Current Ministry

Hovig is currently active in California with preaching and teaching opportunities, as well as presenting the ministry to Armenia to churches and individuals interested in this important gospel work. He is also studying at The Master’s Seminary in the Master of Theology program.

A New Year of Faith Promise

For Hovig and Sveta Bajanian, the road to becoming missionaries was more circuitous than for most. Hovig was born in Beirut, Lebanon to Armenian parents. From Lebanon, he immigrated to Canada, and there he worked as a mechanical designer...


Lights in the World

One of the most vivid illustrations Jesus used to describe Himself was that of light in a dark place. Just as someone in a dark room is powerless and vulnerable without a light, so are we powerless and vulnerable in the face of sin and death...
