Purpose
  “Nor Yerk” is an Armenian contemporary Christian band which sings new Armenian Christian songs as well as Armenian national songs. “Nor Yerk” aims to reach the Armenian people in Armenia and diaspora and bring them the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music and testimonies. Worshipping God is the center of its ministry. “Nor Yerk” believes that besides the beautiful “Sharagans” it is necessary to compose and sing contemporary Armenian Christian hymns. “Nor Yerk” composes and collects such songs from all over the “Armenian world” then prints, records and publishes them. Armenian national songs are also part of “Nor Yerk”’s repertoire. Singing such songs helps the audience to relate to their roots and heritage specially those who live in remote areas of the diaspora.
