What is the Jinishian Memorial Program?


Armenian student debate team in action

 Relief. Development. Faith.

With a 50 year legacy of service and 100% local teams, Jinishian reaches over 40,000 Armenians each year in Syria, Lebanon, Armenia, Turkey, Jerusalem, Georgia, and Nagorno-Karabakh.

Survivors of the Armenian Genocide still struggle today. We respond swiftly in changing conditions with compassion, innovation, and integrity.

Where there is poverty and despair, we bring self-sufficiency and hope by

  • Caring for a vulnerable Christian minority trapped in Syria’s relentless violence, scarcity, and inflation.
  • Helping the increasingly strained population in Lebanon while aiding an influx of refugees.
  • Renewing the faith and promise of post-communist Armenia by focusing on long-term, community-based social and economic development.

In a spirit of Christian unity, we partner with Apostolic, Catholic, and Evangelical churches to serve the Armenian community as a whole—socially, economically, and spiritually.

We invite you to learn more about the wide scope of our programs and how you can get involved.

Commemorating the Armenian Genocide

God is still bringing life out of death in Armenia.

On April 24th, we observe the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide—the systematic massacre of one and a half million Armenians that began in 1915 and continued into the early 1920s. The 221st General Assembly (2014) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) called on congregations to commemorate these Armenian lives and condemn the acts as genocide. Continue reading about the GA action
