Armenian Christian Heritage Committee

Pastor

Christian Heritage Committee, which operates under the Board of Deacons of the Armenian Congregational Church of Greater Detroit, was formed in 1977, on the Sixtieth Anniversary of the Church, through the efforts of the Rev. Dr. Vahan H. Tootikian. Its avowed goals have been the preservation and the perpetuation of the Armenian Christian heritage. The Committee has established an "Armenian Heritage Endowment Fund" through which many of its programs and projects are undertaken.

During the past 30 years, the Committee has established a Saturday Armenian School; founded a library with a sizeable collection of Armenian books and periodicals; organized lectures and cultural programs; published 32 books, authored by Rev. Dr. Vahan Tootikian. The following are the list of those publications:
