Rev Calvin Sagherian
I have been at the Armenian Brotherhood Bible Church since September of 2000. I enjoy being part of the loving community that is our church and encourage others to be a part of it also for mutual support and for spiritual growth.
I graduated from Talbot seminary in 1985 having served at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena for 3 years as a youth intern and a year of full time internship. I served as the Assistant Pastor at Pilgrim Armenian Congregational Church for over 7 years. My wife and I were led to serve in Lebanon as the Campus Minister of Haigazian University for six and a half years before we returned to Pasadena to serve at our current ministry.
Rev Aren Bahadourian
With much joy, I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to my beatiful Trina, a father to my son Ezra, and a pastor serving at ABBC Pasadena (ordained - summer 08). I was raised in a Christian home and have attended this church since I was born - yet it is only by the grace of God that I am who I am today. My heart's desire is to see people treasure, grow in and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. For the last ten years, Ive been serving in the Badanyats minsitry but am currently invovled in other ministries as well. I have a bachelors' degree in History (2003) as well as an MDiv degree from Talbot School of Theology (2007).
Worship Ministry Director
Born on August 4, 1976 in Iran, I grew up in a house filled with love, encouragement, and opportunities. With my father as the Superintendent of Iranian Assemblies of God churches, I was raised in a strong church and worship based life style. This led me to find Christ at a young age as well as learn to play the piano. Though in January of 1994 my father was murdered by the Persian extremists in Iran, I grew to love and forgive them through the powerful work of God, and I became more eager to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to that same nation through satellite. God has brought forgiveness and peace into my life; he has also given me a beautiful wife and two little girls. I love to worship him not only because of what he has done for me, but mainly because of, who He is.
