  • News articles are intended to briefly convey events within the life of local AEUNA churches that will be of significant union-wide interest.
  • Subject matter might include:

--Arrival or departure of a pastor

--Completion of a significant building project

--Churchwide retreat

--Noteworthy speaking engagements (lectures, classes, seminars)

--Commissioning of a missionary, lay worker, or seminarian

--Ordination of a pastor

--Major cultural events (musical performances, art exhibits)

  • Regular, periodic events are generally inappropriate. Examples include:

--The annual banquet

--The annual choral cantata

--The ladies’ monthly fundraising luncheon

  • The distinction between "noteworthy" and "regular" is clearly subjective. The editorial board will make final decisions regarding the appropriateness of each news item.
  • In addition to AEUNA church news, articles can report or comment on the following kinds of issues:

--News from Armenia, the Middle East, or elsewhere, especially relating to Armenian Evangelical interests

--Ecumenical developments within the worldwide Christian church

--Developments or news relevant to or emanating from American church bodies, particularly the UCC and PC-USA

  • Please provide a title, author’s name, and source (if appropriate) for the item.
  • Quotations from people involved in or attending the events being described are highly recommended for increasing reader interest.
  • Use of footnotes, endnotes, or Greek/Hebrew is not acceptable in this context.
