About Armenia

Armenia is a small landlocked country in the Caucasus Mountains. It is home to 18 distinct people groups, 5 of which are considered unreached by the Joshua Project. It has the distinction of being the first nation to formally adopt Christianity which it did in the 4th Century. Armenia has been part of many empires over its long history but has regained its autonomy.

The largest unreached people group within Armenia is the Yazidi; many Yazidis fled to Armenia from Turkey in the 1800s. Their religious beliefs were heavily influenced by Zoroastrianism. Yazidis are still persecuted by traditionalist Muslims as Yazidianism is viewed as a heresy.

Recent Prayerline Posts

ARMENIA. Slavik Radchuk is still on the road, evangelizing in various countries of the former USSR and Central Asia. In June he conducted crusades in Armenia. “The last time I was in Armenia was 1991,” Slavik reports. “Since that time, the number of evangelical believers has continued to grow.” Slavik preached in the capital, Yerevan, where 150 people went forward for prayer to accept Christ. Please pray for gifts to be received for the ever-increasing expenses of conducting crusades in strategic areas. The cost of each crusade is about $2,000, including travel expenses and equipment.
