Armenia Leaders’ Training Conference
Yerevan, Armenia 2012
Dr. Vitaliy Sorokun traveled to Yerevan, Armenia to lead a Christian Leader Training Conference for leaders from five area churches. Historic and Biblical, Mount Ararat, could be seen in the distance (see pictures below). This was the second time Dr. Sorokun has traveled to this country for training. The timing and the setting of this conference were unique because these churches are in the planning stages to create their own Association. Therefore, it was very strategic to be with them and to introduce the BMI materials at this beginning stage. All material was welcome, needed, timely and practical, with plenty of illustrations from personal experience and ministry application, and therefore well received. The reviews were outstanding. On the other hand, there is such a great need for Christian training and education in Armenia, and the resources in the Armenia language are few, if any. Therefore, the brothers made sure that as many people as possible from their congregations also attended to learn and grow in the Lord. Burnham Ministries provided for the Armenian translation and printing of Care and Conflict Resolution and Christian Leader’s Home manuals. They will be greatly used in the days to come in the congregations.
