About Unfinished1 (mike khandjian)

Us in Atlanta

Katherine and I were married in 1982 and are the parents of three amazing children, with a son-in-law, daughter-in-law and three precious grandchildren. We are from South Florida and now live in Maryland where I pastor a great congregation, and Katherine is an incredible local Elementary School Music Teacher. We love the beach and the tropics, but are also enamored with snow.

I am the author of A Sometimes Stumbling Life, a book on “our struggles and God’s grace in the journey of faith” (available on Amazon).

A long time ago both of us determined that we are both a mess, and at the same time delighted in by the Father. Following Christ has been a beautiful journey for us, though not without its challenges, struggles, sorrows and mysteries, along with its joys. We take hope and comfort in the reality that He didn’t save us to make us perfect, but His.

The journey continues…

    Mike, I ran across your blog on the web. Don’t know why, but I was looking up old calssmates and was surprised to still know how to spell your last name! Anyway, God blessings to you and your family! Say hey to Ms. Katherine! In His Grip, Rex

    Just stumbled across your blog while I was looking for information about the Screwtape Presetation. Anyway, I have been attending Chapelgate rather frequently of late, and wanted to say I appreciate your genuineness. My daughter recently became a member of your congregation and loves it, I might add. Her name is Linda Miller.

    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for being so real! God bless you continuously!

    I can relate to Katherine’s role as bill payer. It is nice to know I am not alone! Thanks for sharing.

  • Linda Johnson Fuerst says:

    Dear Mike,
    Like Rex, I too stumbled across your wonderful Blog and was blown away by your eloquence. Through the Tau Sig grapevine, I recalled you and Katherine were in our beloved South Florida, but now find you in Maryland. How blessed is your new church to have you at the helm. I hope you all are happy there and enjoying the fabulous seasonal changes as we do here in SC.
    Blessings, Linda Lou 1/2

      Dear Mike,
      I came across your name on the Chapelgate website and noticed that your last name is Armenian. It is always so wonderful to see an Armenian name!
      We are also Armenian. Armenia – the first nation to adopt christianity. I presently attend St.Mary’s Armenian Church in DC and at times will attend a church closer to me – Severna Park Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
      I live in Severna Park, Md.

      Let your walk be your ministry…

    You should quit boasting. you surf very very poorly! And root for those losers! the Raiders!

    Great testimony, Mike, from someone who changes lives where he lives. I was working with kids in Charleston today, who couldn’t be further from the truth of Christ’s plan for their lives. I work each day to love these kids, and stay cool only as much as cool brings truth to them. To date, since moving here, I have 18 districts in SC, all across the state, with roughly 1/4 million kids who are loved by someone who understands Christ’s love for us. It took time, but I love waking up each day to serve, talk to, listen to, and love the kids of SC. Thanks for your role in my life and my career!

    I just read the gospel according to Robert D’Niro. It was so eloquent! What a wonderful way to reach young people. I forwarded it immediately to both my young daughters. Thank you!
